The requirement for Oxbridge study is normally 3As. Are we all sure that we can get it?
Cambridge mathematicians have alot more to worry about with STEP :P
But yes, I'm already getting anxious as to how it can all go wrong now. I can't believe myself really, I never expected the offer in a million years, a couple of weeks ago I saw it as a case of getting the offer and everything else being easy as pie, now the offer seems like the easy bit. Of course, I know better to than complain, and just be so so greatful for the it=P
Does anybody know if Kings asked for STEP this year?
I am very worried about not making the grades!!!!!
What do oxbridge do if someone doesnt make the grades? Do they offer a place to someone they rejected?
There is a mini-summer pool where people who narrowly miss their grade requirements can be taken in by another college. I don't know statistically how much this happens but I know quite a few people who have had this happen.
i have an offer for AAB. in my AS levels for those subjects i had ABB (gave up my other 'A') so yeh im NERVOUS!!!!!
i got an AAA offer and was slightly stressed about this -didn't want to rejoice too early- so went to see my head of 6th form today and as he explained there really is no reason at all to imagine 3 As is hard to achieve. that is, if you did well in your AS levels. i got pretty nigh 100% in them across the board, so this means i need only get about 60% at A2 to get a secure A. in history for example if i get more than 70% in the january module and a low A in coursework i can get an A overall even if i only get 20% in the synoptic paper in july... the college i'm going to asked for my AS module results... they must be able to tell who is likely to make the grades from these results
I'm in pretty much the same position as you, leda. For the subjects they want As in I got 2 100% and a 98%. Plus my mocks for my January exams are around 90%. So I could be left needing 45% in each of the June exams. Still, can't relax yet!
My parents are getting annoying about revision though - "Don't let it slip now". Aaarghhh!
Natural Sciences at Trinity Cambridge. What about you?
Its nice to know I'm not alone with those marks!
why do oxbridge make EE offers?
i mean, if they did that, a person could just sign the papers and get those required points from the A Grade at AS Level carried over.
so technicall, they cud just stop studying with a guaranteed oxbridge place, but then they would really struggle on the uni work as they will have missed the modules etc. for the required subjects.
it seems silly, as it can just put students delighted to hav been given an EE offer into a trap of just chillin for the rest of the year......
