    Will a Cambridge college ever call you using a private/with-held number? I missed an unexpected call on my mobile earlier.

    Yes

    Awesome - I'm holding an offer for Girton CompSci too and they only usually take two! Maybe we'll end up being best friends
    I think I'm talking about you if your initials are BJ

    Drowned in the pool for maths, 97% UMS over best 3 so it's not just UMS they look for.

    Initially at King's.

    My friend just got fished by Magdalene for CompSci, his UMS average was 91.5%. So this means that Cambridge don't just look for high UMS, gives me a bit more hope and bit less hope because that's one less space.
    Is your friend at the same school as you?

    I've been following this thread (lurking in the shadows) since it started and at 4.00 today got a call from pembroke college for an offer. Thought i should update in case it helps anyone, seeing as ive been living off your information for the last two days.

    Subject : chem eng via nat sci, ums: 95%, college i applied to was clare.

    Best of luck to you all, don't lose hope .

    Fellow CompSci poolee, if you've not read my earlier post about my friend getting fished for CompSci with 91.5 UMS average then you shouldn't give up! Of course I'm in the same boat as you, as frustrating as it is waiting and seeing people get fished for CompSci, there's always some hope, you don't know for sure if you've been rejected.

    Nope, absolutely nada. And to make matters worse, I've just heard some more crappy news:

    Today was a training day at my school, but apparently in the staff briefing the Head read out the list of people who had got Cambridge offers...and wrongly included me on the list so when I go into school tomorrow I'm gonna be getting congratulated by teachers on an offer I do not possess.
