    I've sent it across but it's not working on my phone so I'm not sure if it's sent properly

    Does Cambridge require you to take an entrance test (like the Elat)? Btw, are you done with your ps?

    Yes they do, and from this year on, it's not "like" the ELAT, it is the ELAT, except at the "mature" colleges (I'm a matre student myself), where there's an at-interview test, but even that is a shorter version of the ELAT.
    And yes, I've applied already.

    Oh, so you're a mature student. You prepared for the Elat, then? It seems to have become a major source of anxiety for me, after the applications themselves, that is .

    Well, I'm trying my best, but as I said, for me the test is going to be a shorter version of the ELAT, i.e. one or two pieces of text instead of 6 passages.
