good luck.

They don't even want to interview me agaiN! lol
Sorry it's not the news you wanted. But....the bit to hold on to is the sentence about being up to the standard needed. If you decide to apply again (or to Oxford) at least you have a strong base to build on. You will be an even better candidate later this year if you take that route.

Yep, most likely.
How do you know that??? I'm fed up with all these dates thrown about!! For instance i have read those pooled for English, however they have not posted anything (as yet) about their application!!

Please stop presuming these dates are exact or that every college uses them. My letter from Jesus states, Between 8th and 12th January may be reinterviewed, will be phoned before then.

Do you think its worth e-mailing the college to ask how many applicants there are per place? (for the re-interviews)

Yes, it'd probably enable you to put things in perspective.

Because of the frustrations of 'server too busy' I have just visited another forum alt-uk and there is a posting there from yesterday from one of the Cam. admissions tutors saying the pool was well attended (by all college reps) and they have now decided who they are going to interview. So looks like more phone calls and letters on the way.
Sorry Adhsur - time to move on eh

I emailed them today and they said no, I have not been accepted anywhere.
I'm so sorry Adhsur. Try not to be too upset - competition is always really fierce and you'll do well wherever you go.

Can I ask for a link to this place, so I can read the post and agonise further? I tried searching on google to no avail.

I'm not sure if Adsue should move on just yet. Some of us have yet to hear about our initial outcome and if those spots for those colleges don't fill up...guess who'll they'll come a-calling...
I hear end of Jan--so Adsur, if you're a female and over 21, you still might have a shot at the college I applied for

Sorry for delay - I have the link on my 'favourites' and it didn't come up with a web address.
If you go to http://www.oa.waveflex.com
then click on Resources, click on Usenet and then select alt.uk.a-levels. It is a newsgroup on Outlook Express.
Scroll down to messages posted on 5th January and you will see a selection on Cambridge pools.

It's the newsgroup alt.uk.a-levels. You can access it through Google groups if you don't have a newsreader. Go to alt.uk.a-levels on Google groups and look for the most recent posts by K. Edgcombe.
