I've had teachers that look at me like I've just said I want to be a pop star or a footballer when I grow up when I say I want to apply to Cambridge.
I had that at my old school! Wish I could go back and be like ha in your face

Another told me I'd get 0 A*s

I'm fully prepared to be rejected from the Sutton Trust Summer School since I was rejected from the UNIQ one.

My ex-principal laughed in my face when I told him I'm thinking of Cambridge.

My English teacher didn't even expect me to pass my English Language exam because of a bad mock. I ended up being the only person with an A* in English

When I went to visit my old school recently all my exteachers asked my uni plan, I only said my course I'd be applying to elsewhere so I avoided any Cambridge reaction, positive or negative :yy:

He asked what uni I'm thinking of so I had to reply honestly. I wanted to retort with something back but I was rushed away.
Funnily enough, he didn't even know who I was until results day.

How is the teaching at your school by the way? I know a few people who went there to play basketball who was concerned about the academic side of things.

The maths department is decent.the sciences are horrendously bad. Very good for humanities though like geog and history. It was good school for GCSE like top 90 state schools and then drops for AS.
