From 2004 the University of Edinburgh has used contextual data during the admissions process to identify disadvantaged students with the potential to benefit from the academic experience it offers, and enable their entry with slightly lower prior qualifications. This report describes a statistical analysis of patterns of the entry, progression and degree outcomes of a sample of young students with [General Certificate of Education] GCE A-level qualifications entering the University of Edinburgh at the start of this policy.
