    If it gives anyone some hope, I've heard of somebody being accepted for maths to their original college with 3,2 in STEP, so it's not completely impossible.
    If that is true and then people like Llewellyn don't ultimately get in I'm going to be very, very, very angry

    Hello everybody!
    I am a little concerned. I obtained 1,1 in STEP 2 and 3, as my condition required, but still Magdalene College haven't contacted me yet. I narrowly missed my condition for the language exam(IELTS) and Romanian Baccalaureate. Does anyone have an idea what is happening? Many thanks
    This is a very unusual dilemma - unfortunately, many universities have a minimum language requirement to ensure you can cope with the course. Email or phone Magdalene to find out what's going on immediately.

    If you missed on Romanian Baccalaureate too, technically you've missed the academic portion of your offer and therefore they have the right to pool you (although you should know if that is the case with you).

    If you're winter pooled and then summer pooled can you pretty much count yourself out of being picked again? Having missed the offer by 2 UMS I think that I wont get in

    Those are probably better than my grades, since I was very close to the 2/3 boundary on STEP III anyway. How did your A-levels turn out?

    I didn't take STEP I since my insurance is maths/physics at Warwick rather than straight maths, and they don't require it (and I'm lazy).

    To be honest I'm not holding out much hope for an offer from the pool, especially with such strong candidates in it. Trinity did have an especially good applicant pool this year (I know some of them, and they really are insanely clever) so applicants that might have made it through on another year have ended up in the pool this time.
    My A-levels are good, 4 A*s. I'm not holding out much hope either, the Pembroke lot have some crazy strong applicants this year as well. It's frustrating, to get about as close as possible without getting in. It's like what they say about 4th being the worst place to finish.

    EDIT: Scratch that, congratulations

    On no, that must be particularly terrible! I always knew mine would be a close one with German, and maybe Latin... Yes, you should still be proud, definitely! I was a bit nervous before, but my interviewers were so lovely that I relaxed straight away Ah, nice- I had a small test, but it was fine. I did a summer school too, they're fantastic, aren't they?! We've always got York there for us
    yeah, plus my boyfriend has gotten in with A*A*A*A to make it worse :') wow you did A level Latin?! So jealous, I did GCSE this year but don't have the option to do A level, I love it though! Ahh that's good, yeah the summer school was so much fun. That's true, it really isn't a bad uni, you got a college in mind to apply to there? I can't remember the campus that well haha

    It's quite a reputable college too, although I won't mention which one.

    It kind of flies in the face of the whole "the college you apply to doesn't matter since the pool will sort it out" mantra. The person must have clearly impressed the college in other ways to get in, but so many other great people are in the pool too...
