    I got Pembroke though I chose Balliol. Beggars can't be choosers :P I don't mind. I like the look of Pembroke, it's central-ish, it has nice facilities and it's right next door to G&Ds!
    I never visited St. Peter's, not sure why...
    I really want to know how many got Heng, as the intake is usually very low each year!

    I'm not sure if I can trust my memory, but I seem to remember at an open day a Computer Science tutor saying that the optional quantum computing module was only available to maths & comp sci (ie joint) students - but I can't seem to confirm this anywhere online. Anybody remember being told anything similar?

    Haha St Peter's is pretty close to a Ben & Jerry's and I think one of the G&D stores is not too far away; some of the other interviewees walked down when I was already too full with the mediocre college food

    One of my friends got rejected from Pembroke - it looks a nice college but I didn't get the chance to look inside...

    Quantum is only available to Maths and Comp Sci students; not straight Computer Science students.

    There's high-level information about our courses on the admissions site, but if you want to dig into more detail, most of the existing student pages are available publicly. http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/teaching/mcs/ and http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/teaching/bacompsci/
    Moderations refer to your first year; Parts A, B & C to the 2nd, 3rd and optional 4th years.

    Hope that helps

    probably :P
    just kidding, I know two people who've got offers from Lincoln, one for Classical Archaeology and Ancient History and one for modern languages. So assuming at least one of them gets their grades, you shall not be alone!
