    I wondered - is anyone else still waiting to get feedback from Cambridge? Has anyone got their already?

    My daughter applied for History at Fitz and was told she was unsuccessful about a month ago. She had asked for feedback and after waiting quite a while, sent them an email reminding them that she still wanted feedback. Still nothing.

    Any advice anyone?

    1. The clue is in the question
    2. Maybe everyone would benefit from some feedback? :eek:

    Same thing. I've heard almost 50% of people going to Westminster school get accepted by oxbridge. So you haven't really got much to brag about.

    'Westminster School sent 49.9 per cent of its leavers to Oxbridge'
    What would anyone in that position have to do to make themselves feel that their success was down to their own ability?

    They can't possibly feel that way, unless they're REALLY good at fooling themselves. I would guess the whole point of such a school is that even very mediocre students can get high grades, add tons of interview prep to make it through the selection process The teachers must know every trick and are probably pretty much trained to get pupils into Oxbridge. The only thing you have to do is spend about 100 K on your schooling...

    Last year I got feedback just beofre february half term but I know other people who waited much longer. They've only just finished letting people know the result of the pool so it could be a while if you want useful feedback

    Your type always end up in prison.....for either obsessive fraud or crashing your dad's car into a people carrier on it's way to school...

    Besides, you got 2 A's at GCSE? Isn't that classed as a *failure* at Private schools....I think so...and one of them was in Philosopy? That's the easiest subject ever!! :rolleyes:

    And you were at Private....not public...your dad couldn't buy you that could he :p:

    It would be a good idea to get her school to phone or e-mail to check it's on the way as they much prefer to communicate with schools rather than applicants and their families about feedback.
