yeh sorry too, it just sounded a little geeky. i'm scared of gettin a place as paranoid it'll be full of 'mummy + daddy type people :-p anyways good luck for 2moro or whenever your offer comes thru! (optimism)


I suppose there will be people there who are different to you, but there are gonna be people who you click with too, same as any place, so don't worry bout it! :smile:

Were you not around last night?
Someone was saying, I can't remember who, about what if he had a family friend who was also going to be interviewing him next year and then we got into this discussion about how it would affect the outcome etc...look at the earlier posts, pages...around 15 onwards? Long way to go...



Ahh, thanks :smile:

Poo ... my school is a school that's been around for only 5 years.. and in an unknown country. I have NO CHANCE of getting in. There are only 2 pple applying to Cambridge this year from my school. One dude with 10A* and 6As and me with my stupid 5As and not much else except being Head Girl and a judge on the ICJ at a MUN conference in Beijing. *sigh*.. Being in Brunei is just not fun.

ICJ? MUN?
Lolz.. no. I'm serious.. being in a small unknown school is really the pits. Brunei has a population of 300,000 people and we don't even have a proper newspaper! :smile: ICJ is the International Court of Justice, MUN is Model United Nations. But apart from that, I don't have anything else being isolated from the UK

Yep, my maths teacher said it was incredibly boring and not worth looking into :biggrin:

But my interviewers were nice people though, regardless of their specialisms.

Have u heard of the chances of getting in this year? Apparently for Downing its about 20apps/place this year. Thats wot Ive heard anyway.
So any idea when the results will be posted? I've got to wait an additional 2 weeks to get my rejection letter. It's going to be such an embarrassing time though coz' no one in this entire country has ever been to Cambridge and they make such a big fuss over it. I hate being asked about my application and it seems to be the only thing people are interested about. When I get rejected, people won't even look at me anymore! :smile: And I feel really bad, coz' my employer went with me all the way to the UK (18 hours on a plane despite his slipdisk) for my interview.. and it was cold and so expensive for us. He'll be so disappointed.
