I'd also be interested to hear this. I was reinterviewed on Saturday and haven't heard back yet. Hopefully we'll hear soon though!
Me too! I was reinterviewed on Monday and they said i'd hear back within days

Have any internationals who were pooled found out their college yet? I think they might be leaving us for last...
where are you from? I heard back on Monday evening, but if you're not from Europe it might take even more time for you.

I'm an international and haven't got any clue if I was rejected, pooled or do I have an offer, not to speak which college was I pooled to :/ (probably just a rejection tho)

Anyone that was reinterviewed, how long did it take for you to hear back? I want to be rejected before Friday so I can get over it by my birthday on Saturday :^_^:
I'd like to know this too! I was re-interviewed on Saturday and I haven't heard back. I'm not sure whether that is normal or not

I was pooled by Churchill, and now have a compsci offer from Homerton!

Funnily enough, I still haven't received my letter from Churchill, so had I been given a place there it would have taken longer for me to find out than going through the Winter pool. Weird :/

If one interviewer's 7 might be another's 8.5, then how are applicants fairly and accurately compared in the pool? While the interview is of course a valuable process, it does also introduce a large element of unfairness in comparing candidates in the pool.
A lot of those looking in the Pool are very experienced and have a good sense of what individual interviewers' scores mean. There are also extesive comments on the forms which are helpful. There is also loads of quantitative information in the Pool which helps people looking. The Pool is not perfect, the admissions process is human so it never will be, but it is what we do to do our best to ensure that everyone gets the best chance they can to get an offer.

Really! Ooooooh, see you in October then If you didn't know already, there were 15 people being interviewed for 5 places :/ Did you find the test difficult? The time pressure really got to me and I made loads of stupid mistakes -__-
