    I'm going to revise core maths and further maths modules, and I'm reading up on some micro and macro stuff (just to try to make week 1 a little easier). Just doing the econ reading for interest really. I don't know whether we're meant to do a lot or very little though. Will probably do most of my revision in September, when I feel a bit more motivated and less lazy
    Do you want my economic reviews (I've got like 6 in mint condition, unread )?

    I slapped a piketty reference into my macro exam essay aha I've heard that the book is loaded with falsities and errors tho, I've only read reviews and summaries

    I read an IEA shortened copy of road to serfdom a while ago :P and yeah, economists pile up pretty quickly! I get annoyed at how much I skip sometimes

    What college are you going to?
    Shortened copies sound like a godsend, I need those man

    Yeah, reading ideological works can be extremely tedious!

    See, this convinces me that they definitely botched the marking in some of the papers! I got full UMS in my biology exams last year and I think I was one of the only ones to do so at my school and now I've got a B equivalent at A2? And I'm sure you have a similar story. I may get the script back if my remark comes out unsatisfactory and perhaps appeal again. Have you checked the official mark schemes? I can link you to them if you'd like. I checked the Unit 5 one and it seems (from what I vaguely remember) that the points are the same as what I put. I also checked the essay scheme and I got 4/5 topics so in theory, my mark couldn't have been that bad! Anyway, good luck for your remark, I'm hoping it's successful! (I'm remarking too haha)

    Of course you can ask I'm going to Downing! I visited Sidney and I really liked it, considered applying there! Yeah, that really sucked for you, until they let you in of course Fortunately Downing didn't specify which I'm happy about but quite surprised considering I didn't think I was a strong candidate
    Yeah pretty much the same! I haven't checked the markschemes but my teachers have them and they're going to mark it themselves to see whether I just had a bad day etc.

    Ooh Downing's great, the looks are one of the very best! I think this was the first year Sidney have specified so quite a few of the 10 offer holders missed their offer by not getting 3 A*s, so there were a good few places in the summer pool which helped a lot

    Aw that's great the teachers are doing that for you, pretty sure my teachers wouldn't have bothered Let me know what they say, but I would hate to think we would overestimate how well we did by so much haha!

    Aw thank you and you can walk on the grass so that's pretty cool oh awesome, I see, but it's fine since Sidney took you anyway!

    Has anyone had any information from their college about starting etc, or has access to their cam.ac.uk email yet?

    aprocrastinator The remark came back and went up 7 ums but didn't help really, the teachers haven't said they've even got the paper back...

    mine came back but the grade didn't change either, went up by 10 UMS in unit 4 (5 marks!! how did they miss 5 marks?!) and 3 UMS in unit 5. i was hoping unit 5 would go up A LOT more because I was convinced they had missed out the essay and I still am lol. That's a bit annoying about your teachers, maybe email them? Let me know if they say anything interesting! I wished I had got my unit 5 back since I'm very curious as to where I went wrong!

    but at least we know it doesn't matter anymore since we got into cambridge anyway aha

    Your room will be allocated. All you need to sort out is your raven (computer) account

    Yeah I have my @cam.ac.uk email address too, but I've tried logging in to Raven and Hermes and it doesn't work. Not surprising given they haven't said we can access them yet, but I wonder when we will be able to. Like some others, I've set my preferred email to the @cam.ac.uk email address (and I can't change it on the CamSIS Student Self Service thingy) so hopefully they won't send me anything too important before the start of term...

    I think hermes works now. If you log onto CamSIS again, the rest of the online process stuff should be up.

    I'm still shocked that I'm able to post here!

    College: Clare

    Grats to you all!
    Hey did they specify which subject you had to get the A* in or did it not matter?
