    Are there official facebook groups for certain colleges / departments and stuff yet or not?
    The college JCRs will do that in due course. I strongly recommend NOT joining any unofficial FB groups (especially if they appear to be at the university level) - you will get spammed...

    Are you applying in your gap year?

    The B in Physics may be a concern for Cambridge. ChemEng is more about Maths & Physics than Chemistry.

    Maths make up the largest by numbers but other subjects have a reasonable hit rate - we wouldn't bother otherwise. Only realistic candidates are pooled as otherwise we're not being kind to applicants if they need to sort things out with their insurance choice or go through clearing. Medicine has a quota system with a limited number of places but there are places for pooled candidates in Medicine this year (no pooling would be allowed otherwise).

    Good luck!

    So Track says I've been accepted by King's, Cambridge. A few of the other offer olders for maths @ King's have gotten confirmation emails, any reason why I haven't? (It's been an entire day...)

    It is obvious.

    Can Cambridge revoke you admission? I do five a levels and I met my offer and got a letter of acceptance. However, in two of my a levels I got VERY bad UMS scores
    in the exams. I have to tell my college what ums scores I got. Will the college
    reconsider giving me a place when they see these scores? Might they withdraw my
    place?

    If you met the offer set then you're confirmed. The only circumstances where enrolment would be denied are if we think you've cheated or lied on your application (e.g. sending us doctored certificates or hiding previous qualifications) or if your immigration or fee status is incorrect (you're in the country illegally, don't get the right visa, are being deported, aren't eligible for home fee status etc.). Maybe if you're sentenced to prison? I think this might be on a case-by-case basis though. Unless your awaiting trial or deportation I think you'll be ok

    I'm not exactly sure what would happen if you got a review of your marks and were adjusted down so that you no longer met the offer? Maybe don't try that to be safe.

    Not necessarily. Some colleges will be pooling lots of candidates and might not have contacted them. All will become clearer tomorrow.

    You should know in the next hour or so if you're being pooled and if you are pooled you should hopefully know the outcome by 6 tomorrow or Monday at the very very latest.
    If we do not hear from our colleges for the rest of this evening then is it very likely we've not been pooled? Sorry for so many questions

    Okay I didn't get to read everything because I was too busy socialising for once so...

    CONGRATULATIONS to those who made it, I'm looking forward to seeing you all this October,
    And I'm really sorry to hear the news for those who didn't quite make it, but I'm wishing you all the very best of luck with your journeys ahead, I'm sure you will all be able to stick a middle finger to ATs by doing very well elsewhere
    THANK YOU to all the congratulations
    Also thank you to everyone for making this a very fun journey, and the parents, Cambridge students and of course the ATs on here for supporting us through this.
