    How many do you think there will be for medicine this year? This is so worrying
    No idea, they didn't have them back in my day, but it won't be loads. I know it must be hellish for you all still waiting, but don't pin too much hope on this very last option.

    Norway. I don't think corpus has started to send emails yet. They sent the letters on the 9th and we should get them this week... There is no reason to believe that you have been pooled.
    You're probably right.

    Thanks Maybe my lack of professional vocabulary, or maybe I don't think the way they expect...I'll have to wait till February to get the feedback...

    Yes, I'm Polish and I'm taking my national final exams- neither A levels nor IB.

    And you? Did you get an offer? For what course? And are you international too?
    No, I'm from England, just a poor little fish still waiting for their outcome! I had a reinterview on Saturday, so I'm waiting to hear back from that I applied for Physical Natural Sciences

    Your descriptions of the open offer pool... :rolleyes:
    Did you email your college as to when they could potentially get back to us by? I've seen people get different times as to when they will let us know.
    I don't want to bother them really as passive as it sounds. My letter said 'a few days' but I've heard it could be as late as the 22nd

    UK applicants recieved the letters on Saturday, and Corpus is supposedly sending e-mails from the 13th onwards.

    I was also wondering if they might give out more open offers this year; considering the standard offer increased from A*AA to A*A*A, maybe they'll want to allow for a greater number of people to miss their offers. Although obviously the vast majority meet them anyway

    Does anyone know how many people each college pools for medicine? I was just curious to know how many people they think are ok but don't have space for

    Congratulations for your offer. Chinese at St. John's
    Thanks! You too. I'm doing Arabic and Spanish.

    (Original post by elaras)
    I'm MML @ King's (span + ab initio russ) - you're doing Spanish as your European one, right? We might have supervisions together (if we get the grades) idk i have no idea how it works
    Hey, yeah I am. We might do because I think you sometimes have two students in the same supervision.
    It's cool to meet another King's Hispanicist aha, I wonder how many of us there are gonna be... oh and don't talk to me about the grades :zomg:

    This makes me optimistic. I have also seen some weird offers already given out to medics. E.g like 2A*s and 2As; 3A*s. Maybe they have increase a few peoples offers so they can accommodate for more open offer candidates.

    Vet med intake is a lot smaller than the medic intake. So I think they would have fewer open offers.

    I have no idea what the source is though, there is nothing on their website... They might not be sending emails at all :mad:

    They are, the date is however not certain. Here's a direct quote from an email I have recieved last Friday, after writing to them to ask:

    "I will be emailing all our non-UK applicants as soon as I can next week.
    Best wishes

    To any vets and medics still waiting for a response or who know they're in the potential open offer pool, here is a link detailing the entire process

    http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/a...tion2/2_6.html

    This is how I basically understood what an open offer actually is, and gives a lot of insight into the selection process. If this has already been posted, well now it's re-posted for the ones still waiting ^^

    Good luck guys!!! Hope you get offers soon!
