    I'm in the summer pool.

    Bugger. - No to Peterhouse... but I'll find out on monday whether someone wants me.

    I had an offer for AAA and STEP 1 at 2 grade, but I got AAB (B in chem by 6 marks... ) and a U in STEP by 5 marks.

    Yikes.

    At first looks I'm not a narrow miss, but actually I am - less than 2% miss in chemistry, a miss in STEP but I wasn't prepared in school and it was about 10-15 marks from the offer... and I got an A in AS Further which I wasn't taught... so I'm fairly happy with myself but disappointed as well. Also I loved Peterhouse when I interviewed there...

    Oh well, I've been told that I'm in for a fair chance (I'd say 50:50 again) and that you're only put in the pool if you have a real chance of being accepted.

    One thing though: I felt really silly with failing my Cam offer next to my friends who were rejected from Oxbridge who got AAA. I know it's on interview and everything else, but if I was them then I'd be SUPREMELY peed off.

    Anyway - good luck to my fellow summerpoolians. x

    Awwwww that's SUCH a horrible position to be in. January pools are bad enough but if you already have an offer, the wait must be excruciating.

    Hey you never know Steveee, you might be picked up by Trinity or something and that's so much better. It has me in it. :evil:

    Good luck everyone!!!!

    Edit: Just noticed there's only two of you.

    Pika, you've been waiting around for ages and you've been the life of the Cam forum. Really hope it works out.

    Surely if somebody for Liverpool is called a Liverpudlian then someone from the summer pool must be a Summerpudlian... Think about it!

    Not pooled but ...waiting(meaning I'm not out of girton yet)... Ah well if it was up to me I would go for the rejection.

    Can u guys tell me(us) if our insurence offers are endangered from the delay of cambridge's summer pool? (Given that we got the grades for our second choice)

    Don't be defeatist Michael! Oh, and if you're really worried, I think ringing your insurance to explain can't harm

    well I rang everyone today but no-one could help me:

    British council would not give me step results
    Ucas remained unchanged
    Girton Admissions cannot give me grades or tell me if i passed or not
    My DoS is on holiday

    Does anyone happen know god's phone? Maybe he's the one I should turn to for help right now since I'm kind of running out of ppl, and internet services.
