    OH right, unfortunately I don't know anything about the Austrian system.

    I thought the interviewers at Christ's were so nice also! I was so surprised, because there are so many (evidently false) myths about oxbridge interviews, but they made me feel like I could truly be myself.

    You will meet your conditions - believe in yourself, and it'll happen Good luck! I hope to see you in 10 months!







    Hahahah, I hadn't though of that one yet :P I was thinking Christ-ee, or fellow Christ-person.
    Same to you! Good luck, and I will see you in 10 months!
    'Christ-ian' sounded good till i typed it in but hey we all like a bit of tounge in cheek in this country....loool
    Although I have to admit 'fellow Christ-person' does sound good.....

    Course: NatSci (Biological)
    College: King's
    Rejection, Pool, Offer: Conditional Offer A*AA (incl. Chemistry)

    I can't believe it! I got the letter last Thursday and still check it every now and then to make sure I read it properly and I'm not just imagining it! Sort of crashed down from "cloud 9" when I remembered I have exams over the next few weeks, one of them which determines whether I get that A*...

    Any other people with offers from King's?

    I'm one of about 7 successes out of about 15 to Cambridge and 25 to Oxbridge.
    6 of the successes were Cambridge.

    Sigh. I'm not special.

    On the plus side, someone else applied for law at Magdalene and got pooled :teehee:

    of course it's not really on the plus side. I'm just feeling all unimportant.


    lol blow me with the negs I said I was messing. I want everyone to have offers. You're all beloved by me.

    Woop! Ucas Track updated today with my Cambridge offer! Finally, I can be sure that the offer wasn't a mistake and it's now legally binding on them!

    No room for error for me on my Access course though. Distinctions required in all 36 of my law and psychology modules. Hard few months coming up! Apparently I'm the only person from my college to ever be accepted into Cambridge. Slightly daunting that I've seemingly got the weight of my entire college on my shoulders now!

    You are kinda special? Didn't your school discourage the other Magdalene Law person from applying to the same college as you?

    Kinda? OMGWTF?! :unimpressed:
    Lol, well I don't think they knew. We had one Oxbridge guy dealing with all 25 of us who also teaches most lessons during the day, so they basically just said 'get on with it'.

    edit: oh, also, I picked Magdalene quite late in the process. Circa early October.

    anybody here form Germany with conditional offers of the Abitur? how do they compose the "final abitur grade of 14" they're looking for? all four terms and the written exam (any proportioning)?

    i asked the college about it, they weren't so sure themselves, at least the admission office didn't give me a clear answer..

    You are pretty awesome, though. :adore:


    In that case, I guess it was good that we had so few Oxbridge applicants. Every single detail of our application was scrutinised.
