    I posted a bit before, but after having got winter pooled Queens' gave me a deferred offer, so it was either accept that or give up on cambridge altogether,

    But it's worked out, I've got a job at a civil engineering firm so getting some experience and savings which will be useful

    That's good, I'm planning to take a year out for work experience part way through the course! I thought you said you were going to Homerton so I'm confused now haha

    Missed my offer from Queens - A* in further maths wasn't very likely. So got pooled again to Homerton this time.

    Oh that makes sense, pretty harsh offer though! My offer was A*A*A in maths, FM and physics in any order

    Theres no point re-applying to any college unless you at least meet the typical requirement and ideally exceed it.

    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.
    Thank you for the thanks

    1 or 2 module resits are ok, yes, but not more than that.

    I got in! A*s in Psych and Maths, As in Bio and FM.

    It doesn't feel real yet... anyone else feel the same?

    I'm buying the essentials over here, so I'll take pens, paper and folders with me. If I need anything else, I'll buy them over there..

    I need to minimise what I take and bring back because I might be using the train

    Well, if I'm not already, that is...

    I'm guessing you got in too? Since success seems to be proportional to number of posts...

    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:)
    You NatScis are so nice! I had an extensive discussion with samb1234 yesterday and it's gotten me excited to apply!

    Hahahaha I'm sure Zacken and physicsmaths can relate as well. :rofl: Zacken was the closest amongst us, missing it by 5 UMS. :cry:
