    A lot of Classicists get pooled to New Hall, who come bottom of the league tables quite often. Does this have any relevance?
    Possibly, I'm not sure, depends on the comparable difference in difficult of degrees aswell as students.

    My point is, it's most likely that the least qualified applicants will be studying these subjects, but it's not necessarily a certainty.

    I didn't say it would be, just thought it may influence your decision. The more information you have about a college the better it helps you make up your mind if it's the one for you. Don't get defensive
    I know all about Peterhouse, and of its reputation.

    there u go....u do have quite a strong interest in philosophy! i dont know many people who could read and enjoy all those!
    I haven't read any of them and I haven't indicated I'm interested per se. But I know their difficulty and their subject matter and they are just MORE interesting than Mill.

    @ Tek - incidentally, I think it can only be to your advantage to 'be an early bird'. The more time you have to organise yourself for application the more informed, prepared and focussed you will be.

    No I'm saying it shouldn't lower the calibre of the subject, and it doesn't, it lowers its perceived calibre.

    btw the odds suggest that classicists/theologians/those studying Nordic and Celtic will be the worst qualified. Yes, it's not necessarily true, but very likely
    Worst qualified?

    Yes, I agree, and I expect I shall be extremely disappointed if I don't get in, and whilst I shall work very hard and use every underhand! trick to ensure that does not happen, I can in the end only do my best.

    my school just brought in some woman from cam who basically gave us a talk repeating the stuff on interviews from the website. one of my teachers who went to cam was a lot more helpful and just gave me loads of good personal advice. i wouldnt rely on ur school to much, tho having said that i met some people at my interview who were given loadz of prep at their private schools.

    The best you can do is get perfect module marks so that you get an interview, the find out all you can about your interviewers etc and their research so that you can wow them into offering you a place good luck.
