    An A* in Bio AND Chem, eeessh thats not so nice. I got exactly the same UMS as you in both! 93 in chem and 88 in bio, different exam boards though. I was freaking out a wee bit, but the bio isa was aiiite so maybe failure isn't as imminent as I first thought YAAAAY)
    What are the odds of that lol

    Well my Task 1 for EMPA is sometime this week - I really hope I do well. I need to get my teacher at eye level and say "You better help me" Nah jk I'm going to resit Biology unit 4 in hopes I can improve it a bit...

    What are your offers?

    this is so late
    but anyway, i've got the same offer as you for economics at jesus!!!!

    also got my A* already in maths
    I've got the A* already as well... Takes all the pressure off these exams this summer, only gutted i havn't got an A* in further already.

    Did you enjoy the interviews? And which day were yours... I think mine was the tuesday, I was the tallish guy who walked in late to the TSA if you remember that far back.

    Are you looking forward to next year? (or reading and preparing like crazy just to be able to keep up! )

    Haha sounds like a plan to me...
    Offer from Cam and Birmingham for medicine and I'm waiting on Leicester.
    An offer for biochem at Leicester and rejection from Edinburgh medicine.
    Probs put birmingham as a firm, but I'll see what leicester does first.

    I generally do better in bigger exams, my stupid mistakes are scaled down a bit more so hopefully the summer one will go better, it's about three times the length of the jan one. I need to get 88% to get the A*, comeoncomeoncomeoncomeon tbf if I can't get that, I probs don't deserve to go to cam.

    Well done on the UCAS offer - I was hoping my offer would be just A*AA on UCAS without the A* having to be in FM but no such luck

    I got A* in Maths in January but felt a bit down that it didn't really help with my offer. I'm also doing Further Maths, Physics and Design Technology. Again DT is so much work but they don't care what I get in it. So depressing!!

    What's your insurance?

    She probably realises how much work medicine is at Cambridge. My sister is home now but she is working almost all day and has 3 essays to do by the 8th April. Its just a holiday for the supervisors and teachers!!

    She is pretty envious of the 'easy' life medics have at other medical schools.

    Yeah that's what I've heard. I'm just going to pretend that everyone else has the same workload and if anyone says otherwise they're not being honest.

    Denial is a wonderful place.

    Put Camb as firm

    Well good luck, I calculated I need 55/60 EMPA and 127/140 Unit 5 for Bio A* which doesn't seem impossible (without retaking unit 4)

    Good luck!

    It's definitely not a holiday for the supervisors and teachers either, they spend their vacations doing the research that will allow them to keep their jobs and funding within the university...

    Don't worry about accommodation stuff, it varies massively from college to college!

    This time last year I wanted to sort mine out, but Downing (amongst others) doesn't do anything until late August / early September, AKA after results day.

    I hope my college hasn't sent it out yet! I haven't officially confirmed yet, and it would make me really nervous to know that everyone else could pick accomodation before me and I'm left with whatever nobody wants!

    Is she a first year or second year? From what im hearing, medicine at Cambridge just seems like an absolute mission.

    Im looking forward to it, but at the same time im bricking it
