    Cheers for the reassurance, some people linked some guardian article on the camb applicants thread that defo scared me a bit haha. Idk about you but I'm getting pretty nervous for the 10th
    Same but I guess there's nothing we can do, I'd literally forgotten until today that I'd sent essays off in November or something ridiculous, which sort of reassures me that it's not all just going to be based on my one 25 minute interview
    Although I am definitely expecting a rejection aha

    Ah I guess at least essays is another criterion for them to pick you. All I have is my grades and my interview - which didn't feel that great! Waiting is so long, I'd just hate to get a phone call telling me I have another interview!! Well at least you have Warwick in the bag already

    Yeah true and I do love warwick, it's just when you get to cambridge your like wow this is so nice I could imagine myself here and that's going to make a rejection so much worse

    I hope your cambridge response is good, we'll have to let each other know the outcome on Saturday

    I've applied to Oxford, Warwick, Nottingham(maths and economics), Exeter and Birmingham on 14th October.

    Stats:
    AABB in AS economics, business, maths and further maths.
    Predicted A*A*AB in economics, business, maths and further maths.

    My GCSE's weren't particularly great because I messed things up in year 11 and I went to a school at the bottom of the secondary school league table, but since then I've moved to another sixth form and my grades were significantly improved.

    GCSE 1A* 1A 6B's 4C's 1E

    Oxford - Rejected
    Nottingham - A*AA or A*AB or AAAA
    Exeter - A*A*A
    Birmingham - AAA or AABB

    Still haven't heard anything back from Warwick yet but I'm worried that my grades are not as high as they wanted...

    Hi haven't seen you on the thread before

    Sorry about the oxford rejection what are you thinking as putting as firm and insurance at the moment?

    Also with the warwick thing no news may be good news plenty of people who I thought would definitely get in have been rejected so maybe not hearing anything isn't as bad as you think

    Hello!

    My mind were set at Warwick beforehand anyway but Oxford were just an chance to see if I could do better so I'm not that bothered about the rejection

    I'm really stressed about not hearing anything back from Warwick but at the moment I'm thinking Birmingham as insurance and hopefully Warwick as firm if I do get an offer. Exeter's offer were too high IMO and I'm not sure whether I want to do maths with economics anymore :/

    Ah ok I see, yeah that's how I felt with cambridge but now I love it hahaha

    Although if I end up at warwick it'll still be good because of how nice the campus and how good the course is

    Yeah not sure what's going I with Exeter this year, they've really gone high with the offers

    Best of luck with warwick though, I hope you get an offer

    Someone on the cambridge thread has definitely been invited for reinterview for economics but that's all I've seen
    I haven't heard anything which I'm sort of glad of, getting to cambridge on such short notice would be a nightmare for me

    Ah ok the other person was pooled to selwyn

    Well this isn't necessarily bad news for you although obviously having to go to cambridge again is annoying. You just have to remember that they haven't rejected you and you're still in with a good chance (I think the odds for reinterview pool people are relatively high) also girton is a nice college, pretty sure it has a swimming pool?

    Is the interview this weekend? Best of luck for it and I hope you get an offer!
