    I got pooled and rejected by Cambridge with no feedback (as an international applicant i was always kinda buggered). I have been predicted 5 A*s (realisticly) at A-level and I'm getting full marks in my history coursework. So grades, not a problem and i do some stuff outside of school, and I would do a lot more over the summer if I was reapplying (e.g. work experience and placement).

    The real question is to reapply or not reapply.

    that depends on your other choices of universities. If you have been accepted by a prestigious uni you may want to accept the offer as the entrance exam and interviews are hard and unexpected. After all you can go to Cambridge at post grad level where there is less competition. Like you I have been pooled and rejected but I will firm Imperial.

    yeah good idea, I've asked my teacher who wrote the reference (who they sent it to for the other person who applied)

    I might decide when my january results come out next month, but it would be nice to see the general feel
