    Hello all, I was hoping you guys could help me out with the situation I'm in right now.

    So I've been offered a place at Cambridge to study Economics, but I'm now having doubts about what course I really want to do. To be honest, I only chose econ at the start of the year because I thought it would help my career options the most (and I do actually like it quite a lot), but I've realised the subject I'm most passionate about is Physics. I've looked up the Natsci course for Cambridge, and there are a lot of courses that really interest me throughout the 4 years. I know that this is quite a leap. I emailed Cambridge admissions a couple of weeks ago to see whether they could clarify my future options, but they just advised me to email my college now. What do guys think I should do? I fear my offer will be rescinded if I email my college (which I don't want to happen because I would still love to learn economics, I just prefer Physics), so I reckon it would be wiser to ask about a course change once (if) I'm there in October? I really have no idea what to do tbh.

    Additional info: I'm predicted A* in maths, further maths and physics, but just an A in economics (offer is A* in FM and economics, A in maths/physics - I know I will need 4A* if I want to be admitted and switch to Physical Natsci).

    *Dole. Why are you being so unpleasant, he's helped so many Cambridge applicants, and I don't see how his employment status is relevant either.

    I heard the academic focus at emma is only rivalled by Trinity? Is there any truth in that?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    There really isn't focus on academic rivalry. I haven't heard any thing of sort since I've been here, it never gets mentioned. Nobody really cares how well other colleges do here.

    you read it wrong mate, they said academic focus not academic rivalry, theyre talking about how much pressure there is to work hard at each college

    UCAS is just spreading advertisements - I also got emails about accommodation in London. This accommodation may be, got example, more useful for Anglia Ruskin students who have to find their own place.

    Lol yeah why would anyone choose that though unless they're ARU since its considerably more expensive than college accommodation?
