    I got something similar (7.5 overall with 6.5 in writing) on my pre-interview IELTS and wasn't asked to do it again.
    I also got 7.5 overall (6.5 in writing ) before applying and wasn't asked to retake it. Which college did you get the offer from? The majority of international students that I know were required to retake IELTS if they didn't get 7.5 overall and 7 in each skills. 2 of my seniors got offer from Camb last year but failed to get in because they didn't get the required IELTS score , so my friend is very worried now. I hope Churchill will be lenient if he fails to get those scores. In fact, for him, getting straight A*s in A-levels is much easier than getting 7s in speaking and writing

    This rumour's been going round Emma people for a couple of months but not being in college I can't tell whether it's true. Where did you hear it?

    From some third years at Pembroke - dunno how real the rumour is, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was true. Heard she quit Brown because of the teasing she got, and I don't think any of the other famous people in Cambridge get any teasing about it...though Watson's on a completely different level to most of them I guess!
