    Yeah, sadly enough suspicions were confirmed. Went on UCAS and it's unsuccessful from Cambridge :/

    Still, look up and move on...
    Ah sorry for the news. You should still be immensely proud of how far you got, and I'm sure you'll do very well wherever you go. Also don't just assume that because someone goes to Cambridge they do well- One guy who used to go to my school dropped out after a few terms as he was failing, and I briefly know a women who didn't handle the stress at all, so became a teaching assistant instead. Good luck for September xxx

    :eek::eek::eek:

    Well and truly gobsmacked, that's a great injustice. However, I know that you'll do incredibly well in whatever you end up doing.

    Durham is a great place and the people at my workplace who went there loved it there.

    PM if you want to discuss options in more detail

    I too add my thoughts to you, sorry mate, you deserved that place. Saying that Durham is awesome and I'm sure you'll love it. Sorry we won't be meeting though.....

    Thanks for having the decency to pick up the phone and politely reject me Trinity. UCAS is not a nice way to find out.

    I know what you mean. Now I'm not waiting on tenterhooks I can actually relax, and be proud of what I've achieved.

    Llewellyn... I'm so sorry to hear that mate, that is a huge injustice. :console: That is actually ridiculous.

    It's Cambridge's loss dude, you are incredible. Have fun at Durham next year, you'll absolutely smash your degree!

    Out of my friends there were five missed offers, only one of them was given an offer (missed off by 1 UMS after getting A*A*A*A when literally everyone else on the course had an A*AA offer). The other four are waiting on remarks, so fingers crossed.

    They all deserved their places so much - they were all such hard workers. I'm praying the remarks come back improved so they get their places back. So gutted for them, and for all of you that drowned in the pool. Having gone through the process until January, I can't imagine how it must feel to have it strung out even further - it's literally is a slow form of torture.

    Those that still waiting for remarks there is still hope, so just stay calm and make sure you have things to do between now and September. I had a friend last year that missed her offer and was rejected, but her remark came back and it met her offer so she was accepted. The only thing that made me angry was that, because of the incompetence of her exam board, she was allocated another college when her original offer was from the college she picked in October; the college she had carefully selected it because she'd fallen in love with it.

    You've done everything you can do, you worked as hard as you could and if Cambridge can't appreciate that then they don't deserve you anyway. Still hoping and praying for all of you. :console:

    I was in the winter pool (before being rejected), that went on for quite a while.
