Hey,
I'm thinking of reapplying to Cambridge for English...got pooled then rejected this year.
Does anyone have any statistics for how often people are successful when they reapply? Or have any suggestions as to where I could look for any?
Thanks

I believe that there is a higher success rate on reapplications (I don't know where the precise stats are) but this is probably mainly because only really dedicated people who only just missed out on getting a place the first time round bother reapplying.

sorry,would be interested in that myself, looked it up on google but nothing to be found...mmhh.
I am sure, however, that most people reapplying get in. I have only heard of successful reapplication (although that is probably because no one who was rejected twice would like everybody to know...); and I wish you all the best. I think as a reapplicant you have a great advantage over the other candidates,as you know how the system works, and you kind of know what they want of you. I myself am a successful reapplicant (after being pooled and rejected), and I have never regretted it ;-) ...go for it!
