    Baxter tables are used by the university to rank college exam performance for each subject and year. They are not made public so if we want to see them we'll have to calculate them ourselves :p:

    To calculate a Baxter Table

    Get a class list for one subject and one year.

    For each college, assign each individual mark a score from the following table:

    Class 1 = Baxter score 5
    Class 2.1 = Baxter score 3
    Class 2.2 = Baxter scroe 2
    Class 3 = Baxter score 1
    Ordinary = Baxter score 0
    Fail = not counted

    Then find the mean for each college (add up the scores for each college and divide by the number of individual scores for that college).

    Rank the colleges highest to lowest.

    surely what you're doing above is meaningless - the 'baxter score' is a college measure, not a subject-college measure... the samples are so small that nothing interesting is there, and you learn more just looking at a class list (plus, people who fail don't show up on the class lists, so even what you have posted is likely wrong).

    And there's several other people who don't fail that don't show up on the classlist either.

    Er, so? 3.33 is the average Baxter score. It's not supposed to be the number of people doing SPS in that year at Peterhouse...

    Yes but its still just amusingly misleading. Same with Tompkins. People put that much emphasis to one college getting x many more firsts than another and you're looking at three students in total :rolleyes:

    Incidentally I don't have a problem with Baxter/Tompkins etc. I just don't know why you're bothering to do this two weeks before somebody else does it for you :p:

    That's very confusing. I thought he was a historian, but shall ask.
    EDIT: His facebook says he's SPS, so he must have switched.

    I've attached the full table (in OpenDocument format) if anyone wants to see it.

    Of course it won't be fully accurate as not everyone who took the exam is on the class list.
