I wish I'd known this site was here whilst I was waiting for my letter. Would have been good to have some people to worry with! Anyway:

(a) College? Emmanuel
(b) Subject? Philosophy
(c) Yay or nay or pooled? Yay
(d) Didn't really expect anything. The first interview went quite well but the woman in the second interview was very scary. I had no idea how the written test went either. But I know it didn't go terribly.
(e) Offer requirements if yay? AAA - in History, Maths, Sociology and English
(f) Thoughts? Happy. Wasn't sure if I was going to take it before I got the offer - I love the course at UCL/Kings as well. But I don't think I'm really going to refuse it now.
(g) 1st preference now if nay? Cambridge, with UCL or Kings as second choice, probably Kings

Well done to everybody, even the people who didn't get in. As everyone has already said, it's the university's loss. There are plenty of people who don't even have the guts to apply.

well done... i got a similar offer from king's, AAA in english, history, german and music... do i still have to do all four A2s? lazy me would rather concentrate on just getting 3 As

Practice makes perfect doesn't it? Beside, you can call yourself a comedian by making people laugh.

If I were Cambridge, I would not want to put my prospective students through such a nightmare. Cambridge has dominated my life for soo long. If I were to be rejected I shall be bitter for so long....everytime I hear 'Cambridge' my blood will boil

I'm so bitter.

Yes, but do they offer 140 languages and every book ever published?
And are they in such magnificent settings? With such outstanding teaching and resource?
