    Congratulations you must be really happy, you deserved it.
    I was rejected from the pool , may I just ask what grades you achieved?
    Thanks
    My offer was 1,1 in STEP 2 and 3 from Trinity, but I got a mid 1 and low 2 respectively (I think I got unlucky in STEP 3 and made silly mistakes which stopped me from continuing onto the next part of some questions - maybe they noticed and felt that I had just had a bad day, idk). I did IB instead of A-levels, and got 43/45 for my 6 subjects, with 7s in all my highers (including a 7th subject - self-taught further maths, and the other three: higher maths, physics, and chemistry)

    I'm sorry to hear you were rejected. I almost know how it feels since I had convinced myself I wouldn't be taken from the pool. But at the end of the day, maths is maths and I'm sure you'll enjoy studying it wherever you end up going (assuming you were pooled for maths, and i'm sure the same applies for the rest). Good luck wherever you go

    I got fished from the pool by Homerton!

    Must be in the fairly unusual position of having applied for 2016 entry, then got fished by Queens' in the winter pool and offered 2017 entry, and then Homerton offering 2016 if I want it. (But letting me choose between that and 2017).

    Just want to say thanks to jneill and Peterhouse Admissions for their help and replies, especially with regards to the pool.

    Oh back to the good old days :lol: I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing now, as I missed my insurance (UCL) too. Basically what happened is that I needed A* maths for both, I missed it by 2 UMS but got an easy A* in FM. Teachers were getting me to play the whole FM is harder so clearly I can do maths and just had a bad exam card, but UCL told me to get lost. Sent my UMS to Cambridge but not sure they'll care as I was flat out rejected and not left pending or whatever. Also sent for remarks but not expecting anything.

    Sorry for the essay I feel like you got results last year? But if not, hope they went great!
    Oh, that sure sucks ;_; I'm really sorry to hear that. :console: I could have seen you at UCL :cry: Hope something works out for you

    Yup, I left school last year. My gap years is coming to an end C:

    You never know until you've tried - there's nothing wrong with a little bit of ambition

    (Your UMS for Physics is the same as mine so I would like to think they would accept you Also the fact that we took Edexcel Physics in the first place should be an extenuating circumstance :rofl:)

    Jesus, was pooled I assume as my interviews went pretty badly unless you count being able to guess correct answers from nowhere as a success, think it did shock the interviewers a bit when they asked how I'd worked it out :')

    Then my offer from queens' was A*A*A in Fmaths, physics and chem. I got A*A*AA in maths, physics, Fmaths and chem, so just had to wait and see whether I'd get fished
