    Outcome: Pooled and will be given offer soon from another college
    how did you hear? I got a letter from Christs but I can't access my emails to see if there's an email from my new college. Hopefully I'll get another letter on Monday.
    how did you feel? As I read through the letter I was disappointed, then really happy and now I'm just confused, anxious and excited.

    Outcome (and conditions): I got in! Pooled from Clare.
    How did you hear? (email/letter/phone/owl): Letter yesterday, then a phone call from Murray Edwards today.
    How do you feel? Bewildered, ecstatic, amazed, shocked, slightly stressed about getting the grades (I'm assuming A*AA), like this is all a dream and I'm going to wake up tomorrow and it'll be fake.

    How do you feel? Pretty bad. Thought I had a chance as a went in with good UMS scores but didn't do that great at the interview. I did really want to go though so it's annoying and it's made me unsure of what I'm going to do. But I have offers from York, UCL, Exeter and Southampton so I shouldn't complain!

    Outcome (and conditions): Unsuccessful (Placed into the Intercollegiate Winter Pool)
    How did you hear? (email/letter/phone/owl): Letter
    How do you feel? Extremely disappointed I wasn't made an offer through the pool, I thought it would be an outright rejection but now I know I came so close to receiving an offer its made everything so much more disappointing. Im determined to do the best I can in my A-levels and re-apply in the next cycle, because one thing this process has taught me; if Im spending £9,000 per year for tuition, I want it to be at Cambridge.

    Actually feeling extremely excited! Two of my really good friends also got in so at least I won't be lonely on the first day

    However, a friend of mine who also applied for geography got rejected, which was a shame as we could've both gone to Cambridge! However I am glad I didn't get rejected!
