    Long story, with lots of waiting.

    I originally applied to Churchill. After my interview there, I was invited to a pool interview at Murray Edward's for a 2016 start. I had the interview two weeks ago exactly and was told I'd hear back by that Friday, but I didn't, so I emailed ME. They said by Wednesday, but that passed and nothing, so last Friday, I emailed Churchill to ask if they had any information. I was told this morning they received an email on Thursday saying I have an open offer
    Oh so there will be some open offers still yet to be communicated to applicants? I think I will email my college now.
    Well done again!

    I'd think so. It'd be a lot better if they told us more of what's going on.

    Best of luck!

    The waiting was horrendous, but I am glad that I got through it! It would be funny if I end up back at St John's after all of this waiting, but I'm wouldn't mind being told that I will be going to Downing College.

    Kudos to you indeed! Well, Downing clearly is the best college at Cambridge (the accommodation is amazing, jokes aside) so you'd be very lucky indeed!

    Hi, I know someone who wants to apply for medicine next year. Does anyone know of any personalised services (either online or otherwise) that will match an individual’s statistics to every university and tell you where you are most likely to get an interview, based on the entry requirements eg GCSEs, UKCAT, AS’s and personal statement? Rather than doing all the research about all of the universities yourself. Happy to pay a bit for it. Thanks!

    Out of curiosity, how many of you offer holders (if any) are doing five A-levels, not including stuff like general studies or Welsh baccalaureate?
