Lucy Cavendish College reaches historic milestone with the highest-ever percentage of state school students.

The historic admissions milestone was discussed live on ITV News on Friday 17th of February, 2023:

Of our recent undergraduate intake, 91.1% are from state schools; over 60% are from backgrounds that are either disadvantaged, underrepresented, or historically-excluded from Cambridge University; 10% were eligible for Free School Meals, and at least one in four are the first in their family to go to University.

Importantly, the College has achieved this without compromising academic standards. Students studying STEM subjects achieved, on average, three A*s at A-level, whilst arts, humanities and social sciences students achieved, on average, 2.5 A*s.
