    So I just found out about the U3 guy.
    He was severly autistic and couldnt handle exams he blazed through trinity interviews and he was easily the best in peterhouse and he discussed maths with the DoS and Imre Leader as equals so Imre mustve told Dr Zsak to take him but the guy dropped out cause of exams and they still talk to him.
    So a very very rare exception.
    Props to him, mustve been incredible if Imre leader is reccommending you.
    This is from my mate at peterhouse btw

    Like EnglishMuon has good extenuating circumstances, and I think if he were to marginally miss his offer (impossible) then they should still take him in. However, if EnglishMuon is given benefit over someone else solely because he is black and transgender then that is just bullsh*t.
    I wouldn't like to get into Cambridge solely due to my nickname of "El taco" some people referred to me at school as, no

    So a case of some exceptionally bright person who just didn't take well to exam conditions? Fair enough.

    But what if EnglishMuon was black, transgender and lesbian? That's a pretty strong CV.

    How he gonna take Tripos exams then? Btw, there was a severely autistic guy in the STEP Easter School this year as well. He was pretty good, discussed stuff with Siklos after lectures IIRC. Mathemagicien remembers him probably. He was so funny, and also quite annoying. No idea how he, and that guy from Peterhouse, are gonna survive Tripos exams/lectures though.

    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)

    Just remember folks, no one piece of information is ever considered in isolation and no particular weighting is applied to anything! /s

    Was he 2015 entry? I just remembered that a TSR friend from Churchill, who is gonna do IB this year, told me that there was some autistic Mathmo from their year that was very annoying during lectures, when I told him about the autistic guy I saw on STEP Easter School. The Churchillian was even surprised he wasn't beaten up before IA ended. :rofl:
