    I have no idea sorry im not sure we have any eu phys natscis who were pooled so i cant really answer. Anyway dont think about the pool its already over and youll find out your pool response in your letter which is a billion times nicer than having to go through the stress although I did get my call to inter only 3 hours after reading my rejection from kings.

    Alright thanks congrats on getting in, I actually really really like Robinson and would love to be pooled there

    Hello !

    I was wondering.. does anyone know what sorts of criteria they use for international applicant ?
    We have nothing to compare to UMS, different and obscure education systems, nothing about flags or auto-pooling.
    Isn't it unfair ?

    For example, I come form a highly competitive school in my country, no successful applicant to Oxbridge yet, amazing turnover of teachers, completely different approach to marks and exams..

    They don't know anything about this. How can they evaluate an international application ?
    (Original post by cameron245)
    bump.
    For internationals they simply won't have access to the same level of contextual data so applications will be assessed on their academic merits. Cambridge have been doing this for a while so they've probably got a good idea of what sort of candidates they are looking for...

    Nice cubes but...
    You have your own microscope? OvO
    Sorry I just saw this post :/
    Yeah, it's a cheap one that runs on batteries, someone got it for me when I was around 9 years old I think... It came with a pretty cool slide with the furs of different animals which is the only I managed to properly look at under it. My neighbour had suggested that I prepare a slide of my own blood but my mum didn't let me back then

    I didn't email my college anything like email me my outcome or anything... I guess I'll do if they don't by this weekend... \

    HELP
    Hey I'm applying from outside the UK (EU) , and I emailed my college (Downing) who said they are emailing the decisions to all those living outside the UK on the Saturday. If it's worrying you then just write to them and ask, the worst thing that can happen is that they don't answer.

    Good luck!

    It's just another university. The only differences are a few odd traditions, smaller classes and the high pressure environment, pretty much.
    ....Also, perhaps, is much more difficult to graduate! And again will not sleep ....

    Me it's the last day of Christmas break in Poland. I wish I were at school, though. It distracts me from thinking about Cambridge.

    My college sent out an email saying that they would email everyone their outcome (both offers and rejections) on the 12th. Perhaps your college will send out a similar email after the Winter Pool?

    A slide of your own blood might be a step too far though

    As in, less people graduate? If that's what you meant, it's simply not the case. Cambridge actually had the lowest drop out rate between first and second year of UK universities, ~0.9%.

    Also, I'm personally not finding it particularly difficult, but it is just a lot of stuff to learn, a lot of work to do, and a small amount of time to do it in. This is my opinion, I'm sure the sciences are a bit different because of the content though.

    Thanks
    I have all this work to do for school so it's not really relaxing, but for that it keeps my mind off the letter.

    I'm applying for phys. NatSci, you?

    Btw, does anyone know if/ when Murray Edwards will be sending e-mails?

    I've never been so nervous in my life. You see now why many of those who are very good academically don't apply, for fear of rejection. I wonder when Peterhouse send their offers, I heard it was January 9th. It's like a morgue around my friends at the minute, I'll be glad when it ends. If I get an offer I will literally be so happy. Good luck to everyone by the way, there's nothing more you could have done.
