At Christ's they say they give them out as soon as possible, so I'm assuming after all the extra forms and essays have been sent in.

Sent mine off today, so I should know by the end of the week!

Yours?
Emmanuel give between the 13th and 21st for interview offers, and from the 14th for rejections... sent my stuff off on Saturday, very worried.

Handed in everything bar essays (Girton haven't requested them yet) and fingers crossed! P.S. I'm applying post A2 in case anyone's wondering about the unconditional haha
I've applied to Girton too! Have you heard back yet? I got my letter yesterday. I'm going to send my essays off sometime this week I think

Congrats Hiya, yeah, I've got an interview on 9/12. I'll be sending mine next week (I'm away this week). Trying to contact Girton about my SAQ though - I just realised I made some mistakes in the PS section I need to ammend! Isn't half stressful haha x
Mine's on 9/12 too Oh I know, it is actually ridiculously stressful! Anyway, congrats (and good luck) x

College - King's
Other Unis - I haven't applied yet oops

I just got an interview! I'm relieved too but now I'm even more stressed out because I only have a few weeks to prepare..
Do you think that if we do well in the interviews and tests but don't get the expected grades at the end of the year, they'll still take us?

I was at the Christ's Open Day and the admissions tutor stated that if you miss the grade it's highly unlikely you'll be accepted. Only if its by half a UMS mark or something silly like that might they reconsider. It's happened before, but he stated its rare to accept those who miss their offers.

Applied to Emmanuel (in case I haven't already put it) and my interview is on the 10th. I'm freaking out but trying to stay calm.

Hello! I can't reply to your visitor message normally - you've got messages disabled

Additional personal statement: You're fine. The add PS is completely optional, you don't even have to put anything if you don't want to, and as long as you haven't put 'oh actually I want to do law I'm just applying to this course for the lols/money/*****es' you'll be fine.

As for my application, it's going okay at the moment - my mock interviews have gone well but I'm still reading around the last few poems. And as for your UMS question - the average English offer holder will have about 95% UMS from their top three, but don't worry about that. About 50% of offer holders will therefore have under that, because it's the average.

I've applied for English at Emmanuel


Also applied to:
- Durham
- York (AAA offer)
- Exeter (holder of a dreaded A*A*A offer )
- Warwick


I have to send two marked essays and a reading questionnaire of recent reading; sheet is divided into poetry, drama, prose fiction, prose non-fiction - likely to be discussed at interview.


I got AAAB at AS and am predicted A*A*A* at A2

Glad to see other people applying for English ^^

College: Emmanuel

Also applied to:
Durham
York (Offer -- AAA)
Warwick
Nottingham (Offer -- AAA)

I've yet to send things (waiting on a copy of my UMS with remark/French (did it in Y11 so it's gone missing)). They've asked for two marked essays, a reading list, data protection, and UMS confirmation. Quite a lot -- it's takin' a while to compile. :c
Do you guys also have interviews on the 10th?

My interview for King's was today! (8th) God, it was awful. I think they assumed from my personal statement that I understood imagist poetry somehow.
Anyway, good luck to all of you! The interviewers aren't there to intimidate you, and they're not necessarily looking for what you know, but what you're capable of learning!
