    Your welcome
    What did u get for GCSE if you dont mind me asking?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    oooh I mind so much how dare you ask me Just kidding!

    It's probably on my profile (kind of an egomaniac ) but I got 10A*s, 2As A in FMSQ and at the same time got an A in AS critical thinking.

    But don't stress if you think you can't get that (you probably can, and do better :P) because I don't think Cambridge really care an awful lot about GCSEs.

    Anyone else in the boat where they're the only one out of their friendship group to get in? My best friend and two of my other close friends applied (2 to Oxford, 1 to Cambridge) - all insanely clever, amazing grades, my best friend in particular I figured had a better chance than me for sure - none of them got in. Makes it a bit bittersweet.

    Well a friend of mine got in. But I'm super super super super super gutted for a really close friend of mine. Like life would be perfect had she got in

    And I was so gutted. Wasn't even happy about my offer for a while because of it. Like my initial buzz on tsr, I didn't know about hers but then I found out and was like gah

    I feel so bland compared to everyone else :lol:

    Like I feel I'm okay intelligence wise.

    But everyone else just seems to do a ton of other **** and I don't do anything.

    I j chill and laze about no drive present

    And I'm not private school lad either lmao, with those amazing holidays, or nights out

    Thoughts are being cruel
    omg I feel the same way. In news articles when they talk about successful medics or one of them make a blog post they've done a million weeks of charity work/volunteered with building a school in Africa/saving the world whereas I've done a few months care home and a few weeks hospital but the former was only cos I had to

    I feel like such a bad person when I compare myself to them like I do absolutely nothing relatively

    If everyone is feeling the same, should be okay.

    I don't want to grow up gah

    The typical 'pool' colleges are Girton, Homerton, Newnham (girls) and Murray Edwards (girls). Then there's the colleges that are sort of in the middle for applicant numbers, such as Sidney Sussex and Selwyn, which like to take some people from the pool; Churchill often takes arts applicants from the pool because fewer apply to it. However, truthfully it could be any of them. I've even seen Trinity take people from the pool. Those are just the most likely ones.
    thanks for that, I'm amazed I have an offer and got recommended by christs but I wish they'd told me who actually wanted me

    Yeah. There's a group of four of us at my school where the basis of our friendship was our desire to go to Cambridge for Medicine (we started talking about other things a while ago haha). I always felt like the 'dumb' one of the group and I was convinced they'd all get in, apart from myself. But now, two of them were rejected (one of them with better stats than mine) and the other has been pooled but his fate hasn't been decided. I got a direct offer, and I'm stunned. I felt awful when I said 'dw I probably won't get in' and then I get an offer because it was a total rub in the face for them...

    I know it's frustrating, but the fact that you have an offer is freaking amazing! Well done! And if your college is one you haven't heard of (like Robinson - I always forget Robinson exists but it's a lovely college) or an all-girls one or one far out from the centre, honestly don't worry about it too much. The same message I get from all my friends at Oxbridge is that your college will automatically be the best college.

    Hey, I remember you from the C3L6 Stuff! I can remember you posting in the TSR threads, then afterwards my aim was to beat you in solving it, which I might have managed once or twice, I can't remember. Weird to think that there's a high probability that we'll be in the same college next year.

    (I think I've just made myself seem a bit weird by saying that stuff...)
