Hi with the statistic –
Interview success rate:
Offers per interview: 1 in 1.7

does this mean following the candidates which were interviewed, 1 in every 1.7 individuals were offered a place to study?

also how is there different from the other statistic:
Application success rate:
Offers per applicant: 1 in 4.7

I think application success rate takes account of all applicants whereas offers per interview only takes account those who get interviews
