    When they say a letter will be posted on the 9th, does that mean they will seal an envelope and go to the post office on the 9th or that we'll receive a letter on the 9th? If the latter is true, i'm skipping school.

    9th is the posting date, which means that's when they seal envelopes. And I'm pretty sure all colleges send emails on the 10th for international applicants.

    Depends on college, some colleges send letter only and some send email and letter (like trinity send email on 10th to all applicants). Some colleges say that if u dont receive ur letter by the 12th u can contact them and they will send u a copy of the letter by email.
    Thank you does anyone know if St John's will send emails? Waiting until the 12th for my letter feels like a torturous wait

    St John's only sends out e-mails to international applicants if I'm not mistaken. On the other hand, you can only request an e-mail after 4 working days past the 9th, so that's the Thursday the 15th the earliest. The 12th and the 13th is probably when the majority will receive their letters as I doubt Cambridge will post such large volume of letters first class (so the 10th will be very unlikely).

    Good luck

    I sent my college an email to ask and they said that they will only send out an email of a copy of the letter if u havnt received the letter by the 12th. That indicates to me that most ppl would hav received it by 12 laaatest.

    It differs from college to college, St John's stated in their extranet applicant's site:

    Please allow at least 4 working days after this date for your letter to arrive, if it hasn't arrived after this time please email the Admissions Team ([email protected]) and ask them to email your letter, we cannot email letters until the 4 working days have passed.
    But still I do hope I receive mine on the Saturday

    Basically the same options as me (And the same thoughts...), had cam interview, got imperial on the 21st and had a bristol one last year. Barts told me I had an interview last year but still have yet to give me a date ? (698 UKCAT for reference). Good luck for Cam especially btw!

    Yh same with cam tbh, made stupid mistakes. got slaughtered.
    when i was booking my imperial interview they went sooo quickly (i had to wait b4 i could book as i needed to find out when i had no assessments, mainly the ISA's in sciences) so the earliest one then was 3rd march!! (which i booked btw).

    yh barts is annoying but when i emailed them they did say most candidates will receive their decision after new yr so i guess theyre back in action now. How was the dundee interview? standard?

    haha yh, my home is in london so id much rather stay, unless its somewhere exceptional worth moving for (i.e. cam)...

    ur all over the place lol, scotland, london, cambridge...

    No idea. Thought it was alright, but this is cambridge so really can't tell. Some of the questions were obvious but I sort of overcomplicated them.

    My ukcat is 687.5.. i have a lot of tarrif.. above 800.. but they didn't say anything.. i still hope though that they will tell me something in the next few days.. for cambridge i am not hoping though bcs i have ums 94 my gmat is awful 4.9, 5.4 and 3.5A and i can't say my interview was impressive.. :/

    but i do wish you will do well!! )
