    over 1000!! and I thought 300 in a year was too much 😂
    That's probably about the same as us though, we usually only get one person a year and the last person to get to Cambridge was my sister so fingers crossed I can follow in her footsteps (I am glad that they haven't mentioned it anywhere though jic I don't get it 😁)
    I feel your pain, i now have to apply for Cambz for a masters just to follow on my brothers footsteps, every younger sibling living in their brothers/sisters shadow is rooting for you fam

    Haha there's so many but the college is huge so you can't tell

    We actually get in 5 or 6, once had 8, but this year we've not got that many. 3 of us with offers, and another ex-student with one

    No they don't. Although they do have STEP results already for the mathmos (according to the CAT in his latest thread).

    I think all unis get them at the same time, which is apparently the Sunday before results day...

    Ooh that's still pretty good! We had 3 interviews and 1 offer but there's a really super selective grammar school nearby that completely eclipses every other school with a ridiculous number of interviews and they had 39 Oxbridge offer holders this year alone :-/

    I guess UK education has gotten to the point where if you are not from a particular region, or a social caliber and your parents had not educated you at the start to score highly on the whatever exams you take for selective schools, then you have a very low chance of getting into Cambridge. Is that what you are saying?
