    Is anyone else thinking more and more about how they did on STEP as the day comes closer? :afraid:
    Nah, haven't though about exams, results or maths in ages.

    She's gonna be fine, she just worries A LOT
    Everyone in the applicants thread was very confident in her chance of getting in but that didn't help her worry less pre offer

    What would happen if an applicant got rejected because of what transpired to be a marking error? Would they be forced to give them a deferred place, or are they rejected anyway?

    If an error was corrected by 31st they honour it and give a place. If not they wither give the place or give deferred place.

    Oh ****. My insurance (Warwick) has put "pass GCSE English" as a requirement whereas Cambridge hasn't.

    Hypothetically, what will happen if I meet my offer but fail GCSE English? Isn't there a national requirement to have GCSEs in Maths and English?

    I think it's a national requirement but Cambridge wouldn't have to reject you. You'd just have to resit GCSE English along with ur part I XD

    Would definitely recommend a priority remark if you think your grades are wrong. I got one last year and it took one of my subject up a whole grade!

    Another one took a little while longer, about 10 days iirc.

    I think in General Elections it's called a recount haha. I shelled out £200 for remarks last year - I got 5!

    I heard a lot of private schools automatically send off for remarks in everything just because they nearly always improve more than go down. Apparently they are supposed to be getting a bit tougher on remarks from this year but hopefully they are still fair.

    They do that? I guess they have all the funds to do so. I had to use a lot of effort to persuade my college to just get a script of my English paper last year
