    You lot have got me worried now, talking about preferred colleges when taking people from the pool.

    I went to Open Days at Kings and Trinity and liked them both but decided to apply to Sidney because I really felt comfortable there. There aren't many music students at all there and it shares a DOS with Trinity, but I emailed him to ask if I would be disadvantaged by going to a small college with few music students and he assured me I wouldn't.

    If you are right, I hope this doesn't mean my application will be a lower priority. I didn't apply there because I am a 'weak' student, just because I didn't feel so comfortable in a massive college.

    This is great for giving you things to worry about, isn't it? As if I haven't enough with A2 Maths modules coming up soon

    ignore the people who are saying certain colleges are preferred, no one on here appears to *know* for sure, it's all speculation, if you've been pooled you are as good as anyone else, best of luck

    If you are good enough your college will really try their best to find you a place somewhere. I know it sounds hard but you've really just got to wait and see what happens (worrying will only get you into a state) and concentrate on your studies. Good luck with everything and your upcoming modules

    Thanks...for both the replies! I hadn't meant to start a new thread - I thought I was replying to something on the 'Cambridge Acceptance / Rejections' thread.

    Oh well - now you can see why I'm trying to do Music and not Comp Sci!!
