When I submitted one of my essays for SPS my politics teacher put the date as really recent, god knows why, when I wrote it last year for AS and it had the date in the header... Will this be a problem?
Please Quote me if your replying to me.
Very worried now, are there any issues with sending a piece of coursework in to the college? It was marked internally by my teacher who is an examiner, and also checked externally by the exam board. I sent the coursework off with the marking sheet attatched to the back. I know the piece of work well and will be reading it over and over again for the next few weeks. Are there any potential issues with sending in a piece of coursework as opposed to a class essay? The coursework was by far my best piece of work, so i thought it was a no brainer, but now i am anxious - any legal/policy issues? I sent it in about 2 weeks ago, and received an invitation to interview today. Should it be a problem? Has anyone else sent in a piece of coursework?
Chill I did the same thing too for...was my best piece of work, and written entirely from independent research, so I don't see why Cambridge would mind!
Today I got a letter from Cambridge asking for two pieces of coursework by 1/12. However, I have only ever done one piece of coursework at A-level standard, so I am faced with a problem.
Firstly, do they mean 'coursework', IE work that is credited, or possibly 'work from my course', which could be any essay?
Secondly, if they do mean 'coursework', do I fabricate one, or ask them if they will just accept one?
Are you sure the letter said coursework? Or simply written work, like it has for everyone I know applying and myself, in which case you can send any marked essay.
For SPS I had to submit three essays that had been marked by my school/college (which is probably what they mean for you) I only had AS and A2 coursework essays for E.Lit as my other two A levels were Biology and Chemistry. I emailed them, and they set an essay title for me, and gave me three weeks to write it.
I am in my second year reading Economics at St John's. I applied and got in after having attended an international school in London. I did only American AP exams and got 3 5's and a 4. This is interesting because three years earlier my brother applied to read Economics at Trinity Hall. He attended a well known independent school in London and had a string of A* grades. He got rejected following his interview. (He went on to LSE and is now doing his postgrad degree at Cambridge!). I've met a number of students from international schools in the UK and Europe and it does seem that the university is seeking to broaden its intake. At the end, it is the director of studies who really decides!
Not so much a mistake, but...
I'm thinking of changing one of the modules I'm doing for AS Further Maths - Mechanics 3 rather than Further Pure 2. Do I need to let the university know? If so, how?
Thats true, but when things are important you check them. I might make the odd mistake on an internet forum but if it was an important form I'd check it.
The 'everyone makes mistakes' attitude gets you nowhere when things are important - if you apply for competitive graduate schemes, what do you think they are going to say if you don't follow the instructions you are given. It just shows that you are careless and can't follow instructions.
People who've made UCAS **** ups need to learn the hard lesson now, massaging their egos by telling them 'there, there, it doesn't really matter' isn't going to help them.
