      I'd recommend you guys start a new thread with someone updating the first post with a list of those with offers
      New threads about results are not tolerated and therefore cannot be created; they are all either merged or binned. One of the moderators does not want to relinquish this "power" and thus created an "official" results thread from last May and all competition is obliterated. :eek:

      Note: I have not even tried to open such a thread but noticed this puerile behaviour after having posted in more than a similar thread which was then duly cancelled.

        Conditiona/Unconditional offer, rejection or pool: Unconditional Offer
        How did you find out and how do you feel? Found out today after pausing my constant TSR/e-mail checking for a bit of yoga. I was completely sure I'd get a rejection, actually, I'd just started working on my application to another university. I got back to my computer and saw there was an e-mail from Cambridge with the outcome as an attachment; I opened it and I just started screaming like mad!!! For a good 2 minutes, then I rechecked the letter a million times, to see if I'd read correctly, but yeah I'm in!

        I don't know I got an email saying I have the offer, but the letter with the conditions in it has yet to arrive...

        I see you've got an offer too, well done :party:
        Oh hello, I'm glad it's worked out for you after what you were saying over on the other thread. It has for me too, so provided we both meet the conditions, hope to see you in October!

        Woke up this morning and found the email with the offer! I wasn't expecting to hear for another week or month because I'm international (US), and even then, I was expecting assured rejection. I thought my first interview was a total disaster.
        So excited!!

        College:Corpus
        Course: Arch/Anth
        Offer: 5's on four out of five of my APs.. seriously going to start prepping like NOW

        OMG! Same course, same college! I remember, when I arrived from the interview, the guy at the entrance was like "there are 2 people who came from a more faraway place than you, one from Mauritius and one from *insert American state that starts with an A*...".... Are you from Alabama? Arizona?

        Haha, PM me, we totally need to bond before seeing each other in October!

        You know, there is one thing I absolutely don't understand. Why do users give Negative Rating to people in the "Decision" thread who write about having received an offer? Is it supposed to be communicating "Oh, I'm sorry to hear your conditions are so demanding!" or pure meanness? In the case of the latter, why on Earth? I absolutely don't see why someone writing about their offer to study Medical Sciences at Downing would get eight NR's alongside eleven PR's. And why do rejectees receive Positive Rating? Are those people so nervous they keep making random clicks about the page? :rolleyes:

        Even the thread starter got an NR point :eek:

        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
        i got an offer from peterhouse and iam international but the offer said nothing about ielts at all and the conditions were a*aa which is below my predicted grades so maybe you should call the college

        I am waiting for the physical letter. If the conditions are the same as in the e-mail, I will consider writing or calling them. I am not that surprised about including the IELTS (they have mentioned it at the interview), but the Band 9 is something I'm rather worried about - to score a Band 9 in any section, you need to score the full 40/40 points in that section. To achieve an overall Band 9, your average from all the sections has to be at least 8.75, that is two Band 9's and two Band 8.5's (or three Band 9's and one Band 8) from the four test sections (Writing, Reading, Listening, Speaking).

        OFFER FROM SIDNEY SUSSEX TO READ LAW

        I actually got told by the PA to our college principal before the letter came! Hoped it was true.

        My reaction was to scream then dance around the kitchen with one of my best friends Amy to Only Girl by Rihanna.

        Congrats to people with offers and those pooled (don't give up my friend got in last year via the pool) and condolences to others - do not give up hope, I was rejected by Oxford last year without interview but took this as a sign that I needed to fight and show them up. Which I sort of hope I have!

        If you're not already at Uni, then it means they expect you to get a First class degree, or an Upper Second, when you attend. It doesn't seem worded like a condition. They're just explaining why they're offering you a place. Congratulations.
