Dear Rushda

We have now received all of our information back from the Inter-College
Pool, and regret to tell you that you have not been offered a place at
another Cambridge College. We appreciate the disappointment that this news
will cause you. As you know, the competition for the limited number of
places at Cambridge is very keen and we regret very much that we have each
year to disappoint a number of applicants who in attainment and promise are
well up to the standard required for entrance to Cambridge.

In the coming weeks, we will be writing to the schools of candidates to whom
we were unable to make an offer, to provide a breakdown of their performance
at interview, and any advice or information that individual Directors of
Studies think may be appropriate. This information will be sent to your
Head Teacher, and we hope that you will find it useful.

Thank you very much for the time and effort that you have taken in applying
to Clare, and we wish you the very best of luck in your other university
applications.

Yours sincerely,

Dr T Knighton
Dr W Foster

Hello,

I have received the pool letter and I had a few queries. First of all, in what circumstances would I be accepted from Clare now? (I understand the chances are very slim). Secondly, how likely is it that I'll be accepted from the pool, and is it possible to have any say in the college I am pooled to?

I was wondering also, if I could have some sort of feedback on my interview (one of the reasons for which would be that I may consider reapplying).

Thank you so much for your help.
