    It's pretty obvious the people in the Facebook group aren't being serious. The satirical comments are actually making me laugh.

    I did have a stalk of some of their pages and my judgement is that a lot of them seem to be pretty privileged, but that's just a simple observation and not discriminatory.

    You too! Haha, to be honest I don't really mind, at least they haven't specifically asked for an A* in Further Maths. An offer's an offer, I'll take whatever. Ooh, no I haven't, I'll take a look! Any ideas which options you might decide to take for NatSci?

    I've looked at the facebook group (not joined yet) and i'm slightly scared by all the dickish people in there. I was in a durham offer holder group last year and it was all a lot nicer... getting worried about the people at cambridge now
    I think some people get very excited at the prospect of (almost) being at university (and fair enough to them), and so they start going a bit OTT with 'banter' on these groups and not really being their usual self.

    In the flesh, almost everybody is really nice - and I can guarantee that regardless of the type of person you are, you'll find both a bunch of people like you that you can really get along with, and a bunch of people who aren't really like you but that you still enjoy hanging around with as well.

    Don't worry - those sorts of groups are always full of ********s, who do represent a minority. The people are lovely, I promise.
    I've been chatting with the people on there for a couple of hours, and they're lovely.

    My friend who's doing BioNatSci at Magdalene was asked for a specific A* in FM, the poor bugger. Got straight A* in the end though

    Someone posted about who's paying the fees through the trust fund and where can I keep my horses, and people are putting jokey comments about where they're keeping the servants and where to land the private jets.

    yea true I'm glad cambridge didn't want A* in further maths, takes some pressure off as it's so easy to make the stupid mistakes and lose it. So far I'm thinking maths, physics, computer science and materials. I think i must be one of the few who won't do chemistry. At the interviews it was pretty funny being given a chemistry interview when i don't do chem, i still don't know wtf an ionic lattice is lool. What options are you thinking?
