    Economics and Peterhouse. It's crazy I know, but I doubt it is a mistake. But I'll wait for the physical letter should anything change
    Hello, I do take IB too, and find it very hard and even not too useful to score a 45 in IB, it won't make any difference when you have appropriate HL subjects at a high level.

    But is it based on your predicted score?

    I've just got the decision letter by email and I am utterly confused. Yes, I got an offer, I should be happy and all, but the conditions are ridiculous - 45 in the IB diploma and 9 overall in IELTS + 9 in the Writing section. That can't be managed, it's just crazy. Is there anyone here who had a following experience? That is, a condition on scoring 45 in the IB? (And, in addition, Band 9 in IELTS is the highest - usually international applicants are required to achieve something around 7 or 7.5 overall even for Oxbridge)
    well CONGRATS FOR THE OFFER!!!! but whaaaat? 45??? the typical IB conditional offer is like 42. look on your colleges website and see what their offer usually is. it should say on it. im pretty sure they made a mistake because 45 is pretty impossible to get haha

    That's one unbelievably bad lie if i ever saw one. They happened to tell a US student in one, badly written sentence, what happens to UK applicants too, but nowhere else.

      I got the same email. I was so ready to find out if I had an offer, but I guess I'll have to wait another day.

      Dear Candidate

      Due to an issue with Cambridge post yesterday, your decision letters will be delivered 24 hours later than anticipated. You will be able to see your decision on UCAS from Friday 7 January. Students within the UK should receive their letters tomorrow also.

      Please be aware of the number of applicants this effects before ringing our office. We may not be able to tend to your call straight away and ask you to be patient.
      Also, they mean affects, not effects, right?

      Thanks. But I doubt it is a mistake because (1) the IELTS condition also asks for top score and (2) there are no subject-specific conditions, which are usual in Cam conditional offers (well, when not asking for full 45 ).
