    Applied for Economics. Maybe picked a bit too aspirational of a college cause my UMS isn't genius level but I feel like the interview will be the strongest part of my application if I get one.
    Good luck to all!
    A choice of your college won't affect your chance of getting an offer from
    Cambridge because of their quite efficient moderating system.
    If you're good enough you'll get a place somewhere even if your college cannot offer you their place.

    Hope it goes well. Where have you applied to? What are your UMS overall?

    Hopefully then
    I have to take the TSA and the St Johns offer is A*A*A instead of A*AA which is why I was slightly more worried!

    Read 'About Colleges' in this OP.

    Has anyone had to fill in any forms on their fee status? A friend applying to a different college (and I am well aware different colleges have different procedures) has had to fill in a fee status form so I was wondering if we were supposed to have received something about that too.

    I've only had the data protection to fill in. Not had to send proof of UMS or anything extra.

    This is a thread for anyone applying to St. John's College, Cambridge this year. Feel free to introduce yourself and what subject you are applying for, and to ask any questions you have about the application process.

    Hopefully this thread will enable you to make some contacts which may help to make the interview day a little easier and calmer.

    I will go ahead and introduce myself first. I am applying for maths this year, and I have always wanted to go to Cambridge as I grew up there as a child. I really loved St. John's when I looked around it on the open day and the DoS was really friendly!

    Yeah same here. Good to know, I am a bit distrustful ever since they sent round an email saying we had received details for the Applicants login and we had not :-)

    As far as I am aware, i think you get your interview notification by post. But UCAS track says that it willl update if you get an offer/interview so maybe you get both haha

    Hi everyone! Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't heard about interviews yet - my friend submitted her written work to Queens' last week and got her interview invitation a week after, so I was beginning to feel concerned about not having heard anything since I sent my work in on Monday.

    Anyway, I've applied for French and ab initio German and my current A-Level subjects are French, Spanish and English Lit. I wish you all the best of luck in getting interviews and offers (unless you're doing my course :P) and I hope we all hear some good news soon!

    Hi, welcome to the St Johns thread. I think you should be hearing from them very soon regarding interviews

    Hi

    I'm applying for Natural Sciences and am doing Biology, Chemistry and Maths A Level. I logged on to the applicant website thing (can't remember where I found my log in details tho) and it said they normally give interview offers in the second week of November - so shouldn't be long!

    Any other NatScis??
