    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
    Oh, wow! So you have another reason to hope to get in- to be at the same uni as him? Yes, plus I didn't have a teacher, just a tutor I didn't see all that much, so that was hard! I really enjoyed GCSE Latin. I can't believe the summer school was a whole year away. It's great for Linguistics, and great anyways, yay! I can't remember it either, nor the colleges

    Yeah but I know it's not gonna happen! I assume I would have heard something by now if I were going to? Wow that's impressive, it was getting difficult towards the end so I can't imagine what A level is like! Haha yeah, it should still be good, just gotta remember that the most important thing is that you graduate with a first or whatever, not necessarily where you get it from!

    That's the same thing I thought ten minutes ago about myself. Hold tight. I remember you from the winter pool, and I really REALLY hope you make it.

    Don't give up hope just yet- the trains from York don't take tooo long do they? (my boyfriend and friends are all down south :/) I don't know, I haven't heard anything either yet. It was really hard, especially because it was very literature-based, and I'm not used to that! Indeed- a 3rd from cambridge doesn't sound so good as a first from york, to me!

    I'm a little confused as to what happens next. Results day shook me a bit, so I'm starting to wonder if my insurance (Birmingham) might make for a less stressful 3 years with a better outcome (plus a few other personal reasons). If on the off-chance I get an offer from the Summer Pool, would it automatically allocate me to Cambridge while rejecting Birmingham, or do I still have to manually pick one on UCAS?
    Would I need to contact Cambridge and Birmingham to tell them I'd rather go to the latter and drop out of Cambridge if UCAS automatically assumes the firm is accepted?
    Am I completely mad and unreasonable to doubt whether I should accept Cambridge at all?

    Yeah, I'm only two hours away on the train but it will feel like forever! Ah that sucks, know how you feel oh gosh, I bet it was tricky! So what grade did you get in it? Haha yeah! Plus three years at York will probably be a lot less stressful/much more fun! Not knocking Cambridge at all obviously, but this last year was stressful enough and I guess York might be a blessing in disguise haha

    I completely agree. My insurance is Birmingham and they have been so friendly and helpful, unlike Cambridge.
    Yes, it rejects Birmingham automatically. You cannot manually pick between firm and insurance.
    I have just confirmed my insurance offer with Birmingham even though I am in the summer pool.
