    Same here Plus since I'm also applying to other universities I had to modify my statement a bit, which makes me double nervous.

    Did you write your statement for Cambridge specifically or for several universities, if you don't mind me asking?

    Yeah, I wrote it pretty much with just Cambridge in mind, even though I'm applying to a few other universities as well. Most of the courses are mainly Medieval history, so it isn't that big of a stretch, though. What other schools are you applying to?

    Man, trying to choose between colleges was probably the biggest struggle here, haha. Ended up going for Gonville and Caius!

    Universities in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow, but for courses related to Scandinavian Studies.

    Sounds good! I'm actually applying for Glasgow and Edinburgh myself, too. Might just end up in the same place, who knows.

    Do you guys already know which papers you'd like to take, if you got in?

    Congrats! It's great we all found each other, I hope we all get accepted. I still haven't sent my application yet as I'm having some issues with the last part :/ Makes me really nervous...

    Same here... I'm an international student and I have no idea if all of the SAQ applies to me The A Level part shouldn't apply to me, 'cause I'm taking a different qualification but I'm at the stage where every sentence seems suspicious and sends me into panic

    Where are you applying from? I'm from Finland myself, and as you mentioned, the A level shebang doesn't apply to us who haven't taken them (obviously). The instructions were pretty clear tho, imo, so don't worry about it too much. I'd say the part about A levels was the only thing that's different for us non-Britons.

    Sent off my SAQ this morning! So begins the countdown

    Thank you! I'm so relieved! Everything seems much clearer now. What about the High School Transcript, though?

    And I'm from Poland

    Yay, another EU kiddo then! Oh yeah, forgot about the transcript - that one applies to us. Just ask your school to send you a copy of your courses/grades in PDF format, and upload it. That's what I did, anyway, haha. Don't fret too much about it!
