§ Mr. Goronwy Roberts
The total number of direct entrants to the Administrative Grades of the Diplomatic Service by Open Competition from Oxford and Cambridge since 1962 is 136. During the same period 31 entered from other universities, while 3 were non-graduates. A breakdown of these figures is shown below. There is also some graduate entry into the Executive Grades of the Service, although the bulk of recruitment is from non-graduates. The figures for Executive Grade entry are also included in the table.
