    If you would feel bad having got 2,1 or 2,S then just imagine how the person with U, 3 in STEP II and III felt. (page 2, row 64: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...TEP%20data.pdf)

    A question for Cambridge offer holders!

    When did you send your UCAS form and when did you receive your first offer (from which uni?)
    I sent mine off in early October and York offered me a place for biochem on the 20th of the same month

    In a world where money and connections rules everything

    Their dad probably promised them a donation of a few million. I mean, how else are Trinity so wealthy?

    idk, i hope it was one of those extenuating circumstances situations where they are quite forgiving of some bad situation they are in. but still id have a breakdown or somehting if i got an S and was rejected.

    I think that datas got to be ****ed up. Someone with 11 offer, gets 1S and then is summerpooled.

    That datas probably misaligned by a row or something trust me

    Maybe some extenuating circumstances (lost both hands before sat the exam?), or positive action (maybe it was a retired black lesbian transgender...?), or connections.

    It begs the question as to why someone with
    U3 is put in the summerpool and I wasn't with 1,3.
    What a load of ******** honestly.

    They originally received an offer from Trinity but it was Peterhouse who let them in through the summer pool. (page 7: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...and%20data.pdf)

    So many sorry to say *****er candidates with 2,2 and 1,3 getting in over kids who got 1,1 and even S,1 it is just ridiculous. Moral of the story don't apply to trinty and make sure you meet ur offer.

    yea probably they shouldve asked them to reapply another year, fa. But as a positive that means ull be the one doing supervisions for the 2nd/3rd years who need u to teach them step level counting
