    Do they pool at christs(engineers) ? and what do they look for when pooling ?
    Yes, but the Summer Pool is v small for engineering. 6 were successful last year across all colleges. That's less than 2% of all acceptances. It was even fewer in 2014.

    E.g. you miss STEP at Christ's but achieved A*A*A. (This is a guess, I have no data...)

    From Girton to Hommerton. I'm confusing myself now... anyway it's all, er, academic. You'll be at Cambridge in October.
    Girton. Don't say that. My offer is frkm my homerton.
    I missed my offer by alot since it was absurdly high due to another year but ive met or exceeded tbe standard offer if that means anything. Hoping someone will fish if pooled.

    I do remember some professor at Cam telling me (I don't remember who) that the summer pool almost completely consists of mathmos and that it is "exceedingly uncommon" for other subject offerholders to get fished out of the summer-pool. For all other subjects, the fishing almost exclusively gets done in the winter pool. So Idk...

    If anyone is worried they may have missed their offer and wants someone to talk to - I'm here. I missed my offer for Cambridge last year and know exactly what it feels like to think you may not've got in. If anyone needs anyone to talk to I'm here

    I see age hasn't dulled your wit .

    Nope, it's telesales. Nothing glamorous. I finished my old job on Fri. I got some giftcards, flowers, chocolate and cake. Ppl seemed genuine in their goodbyes so that was nice.

    I have just been a slob all afternoon. Now headed to the gym. Hoping this will compensate for my prior indolence.

    A mathematician should phrase it
    'Atmost 5 days before'.

    tfw you go to Lloyds Bank, and they tell you that you can't have a student bank account because you have to be at least 17 years of age.

    God damn fascists.
