    Hey guys.
    I know it's very early but I've noticed a lot of people that are intending to apply in 2016/17 lurking around on other Cambridge threads. I think it's about time for us to have our own thread!
    Hopefully we can motivate each other for our first year of A levels/IB and so on.

    Post the subject that you're hoping or strongly intending to apply for. Feel free to post your chosen A levels/IB as it may help others to decide.

    Also, even if you don't want to apply to Cambridge then this thread will (hopefully) be a good motivator, so feel free to chip in!

    EDIT: I forgot to put my chosen subjects.
    Spoiler:

    A level
    English Literature
    Biology
    History
    Art

    I recommend English lit as it's an essay subject and sets a slight contrast between your other choices. Be prepared to put in work still as Literature is quite difficult from what I've heard!

    Wow. I was looking for such a thread lol.

    I'm taking Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History for Cambridge Pre-U's and RS A-Level. (I would have to take Further Maths off timetable or drop it if I couldn't manage. Let's hope I could.)

    Emmm... And I'm going to apply for History

    I wasn't motivated enough at GCSE's, so I'm definitely not going to have something like 11 A*'s. (My school only allowed me to take 9 just because English isn't my first language Although I scored 7.5 in IELTS which proved I was fluent enough.) Probably 5-7 A*'s at the best...

    So yeah, I'm going to work much harder at sixth form to get high Pre-U predicted grades, do lots of wider reading and get some relevant work experience etc. I'm starting at the biggest museum in my city next week Just trying to make up for my possibly mediocre GCSE's really...at least to some extent.

    Don't let the grade hinder you! If you feel that you have a genuine passion for it then go ahead lots of people, as you know tend to perform better at A level. A 'B' in GCSE maths is very good in my opinion (although I think you've done better than you think).

    Literature is just :daydreaming:
    I REAAAAALY want an A but I can just sense that I didn't do as well as I needed to get at least 120/200 for an A. I think I got near it, but just not enough so I'll still be on a B. Ah well, who knows, I'll see on results day.

    It's good, and enough to get into Maths A-Level at my first choice college so I can't complain. I'd be happy with a B since I used to be horrendous at Maths, I just think I could have done better.

    Literature is the best subject, after Comptuing/ICT. :daydreaming: (Sorry, I love Computing!)
