Hey guys! Was wondering if there's anyone out there who's got an offer from Sidney for next year, is there already or is going to study MML at Camb? Anyone MML people wanna tell me what the course is like at Cambridge? There don't seem to be many MMLer's on the Sidney forums. I'm hopefully going to do German and Italian.
Any peeps from the wonderful Wirral out there too?

I got an offer from Sidney Sussex for Maths, quite surprised really as my interviews didn't seem to go very well and I have quite poor GCSE's.
Not from Wirral though, don't even know where it is,

They have too much of a life I guess! Spurge is permanently pissed so I'm surprised he manages to find the message board at all.. You'll quite possibly encounter Matt Legg on there (signed in as The Third probably - DON'T ask), he's a linguist doing French and Spanish I think. I may drag one or two of the first year linguists on for you if I can grab em

Can't remember exactly when I had my interview, but I couldn't get college acommodation so I stayed at a Bed abnd Breakfast and got a Taxi in, then left as soon as my interviews had finished. So I didn't get a chance to meet any other applicants or undergaduates.

Yes i am from state school, comprehensive infact, but I doubt that Cambridge discriminates in favour of state school applicants as there is no incentive to do so, and places are probably awarded on merit.
As for your friend who got rejected with 10A*s and 5As tough luck really.

It has a funky little bridge thing, but the building the other side of it smells of sick. And has done for the entire time I've been going there. Someone there has a broken leg. Her friend (my friend, who is at Clare) also has a broken leg. I was always led to believe it wasn't contagious but now I'm not so sure...

Hi, I've got an offer for MML at Downing (French and Russian). Are you doing both languages post A-level or starting one from scratch?

YThats a bit of a silly thing to say really, loads of good people get rejected, if noone applied to colleges where good people got rejected then noone would ever apply anywhere! I know it puts you off, but it s bit unhelpful for other people.

i'm doing german post-alevel, and italian kinda from scratch- i get private tuition, but i doubt i'll get very far by the end of the summer, would prefer to be streamed into the lowest possible group so i can keep on top of the vocab more easily.
