Who got in and who didn't? watch


    (Original post by Faboba)
    I got into Cambridge for Philosophy at Sidney Sussex.

    Your poll is... confusing.

    If someone is pooled then they must be at Cambridge.
    They could be said to have got into Cambridge.
    If you got into Cambridge you would have got into Oxbridge too.

    There is a minority who can justifiably choose three out the four options in your poll.

    What does happen in Oxford in place of the pool anyway?
    No, you could be in the pool and be either accepted from it or drown in it. So the poll says either "rejected", "rejected at pool", or "accepted".

    Oxford has a pool of sorts, and some candidates are called for interviews at different colleges. There is also a summer pool for people with open offers and those who have just missed their grades, but neither works in the same way as the Cambridge pool though.
Who do you think it's more helpful to talk about mental health with?
