    Did the first paragraph of your letter say that "I am sorry to tell you that we have not been able to make you an offer at Pembroke College at this stage. The strong competition this year has resulted in many good candidates squeezed out. However we have sufficient confidence in your abilities and potential to recommend you to the Inter-Collegiate Pool"

    If all of that is true, which it should be considering the grades we got, then we still have a good chance xD.
    Yeah it did, we probably all got the same letter :/

    Yeah that's true! I was just sure I wanted to do a placement so I figured I might as well secure that now! But if you're not sure that's fair enough and yeah they probably will

    Congrats My friend got the exact same offer last year. If anything it works in your favour. It spreads the risk rather than all your hopes being pinning on C4

    Any questions please ask

    As someone who got pooled last year, seriously try not to think about it. If your drown then be pleased you have gotten so far, it is by no means an easy thing to do. Also there are plenty of other great universities out there, which are in many aspects better for studying economics than cambridge. If you get another interview, try not to stress - you have a much better idea of what its going to be like going in the second time

    Thanks man , I guess it does give me more modules to play around with :P.

    I do have a question in fact, since the offer's based on 4 A Levels does that mean I wouldn't have gotten one had I only continued with 3? Just curious.

    No, unless you had a serious issue with the school or with your personal life which meant you couldn't do all 4.

    Absolutely not. It just means they don't want you slacking
