    Has anyone created a facebook group for Christ's offer holders? There seem to be quite a few of us on this thread!
    I was under the impression people already at Cambridge made them? Not sure

    They phoned me, which was a surprise- I was expecting a letter in the next week or so. They sounded really nice, and explained why they had chosen me which was a bit embarrassing and unexpected. They also said that due to the volume of administration, etc., going through at the moment that it might take 2 weeks for the official letter to arrive, but they were reassuring me that it wasn't a mistake and I had really got in.
    Thanks! Hopefully I hear from somewhere soon! 😊

    Haha, good luck to her! English is amazing

    Last year it was - we have 100 people in each year approx (it's quite a small school I guess) and last year there were 20 applicants, 10 places, 7 people who made the offers I believe (one was a mathmo, one got the A* in the wrong subject, etc). But this year the lack of January modules ****ed us all - last year bad January results gave people a kick up the arse, but we didn't have that. Plus, a few people this year applied to particularly competitive courses and colleges (e.g. Economics at Brasenose). So we have 3 offers this year; 1 Oxford, 2 Cambridge.
    Ah yeah that makes sense. Well done on being one of the few who made it, but sorry for your friends!

    I'm in the opposite situation where literally all of my close friends got offers but it made me realise how heartbreaking it would have been if even one of them didn't, so I really sympathise
    How many from your school got an offer?

    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.
    I'm the only one from my school to get an offer this year :confused: Very strange because this year we had the highest number of applicants to Oxbridge but the lowest number of offers...I still maintain that some of the applicants were stellar candidates but I guess it just didn't work out in their favour on the day. Very, very bittersweet indeed

    It is to some extent a lottery. Well done on your offer! But I feel the same way. It would have felt so much better if my friends had gotten in too. Still, I'm glad I'm not the only one from my school.

    Ahhhh I can legitimately post here!

    Physical NatSci at Fitzwilliam.
    A*A*AA in Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths respectively.

    Still hasn't really sunk in yet?!

    All 3 of us in my year who applied to Oxbridge got in, I'm just so pleased that one of us didn't miss out because it would've been a bit awkward for all of us.

    Hey username42, could you possibly put a link on the first post of the thread to the list I'm making of offers on page 6? Think it could be useful to people

    Woohoo English people! This is going to be so much fun - the English course at Cambridge is epic. Now we just have to make the offers...

    And James, the only other Corpus person on my list is paapercrane.



    I'm glad your friends made it The Oxford rejections came in a while back so people have had time to come to terms with it - they were pre-interview - but it's just so gutting. I wish more of us could have made it.

    Also, by the way, if we both make it in I am totally taking advantage of you being at Pembroke. Pembroke's supposed to have the best food.
    I know someone at Pembroke currently, they have a Michelin starred chef!!
