  11. Students of overseas domicile, but whose country is unknown are included in total figures but not separate breakdowns.
  12. 'Other overseas' includes the 38 overseas countries that have the most students studying in the UK, from a selected list.
  13. Students whose ethnicity is not known include those who have been coded 'information refused' and 'information not yet sought'.
  14. An unseen disability means for example, diabetes, epilepsy or asthma.
  15. The University of Cambridge does not classify its B.A. degree, but awards classes in the Tripos (honours) examinations usually taken at the end of each academic year. Therefore the class of degree recorded on the HESA record is the best class obtained and not necessarily that obtained in the final year. As a result of this the numbers of first class and upper second class degrees are slightly inflated.
