    Getting desperate to get a decision one way or the other now... Just emailed my preference college:

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am writing with regard to my current application to read Music at the University of Cambridge. In the letter which I received on Friday 4th January it stated that I had been placed in the Winter Pool and it is my understanding that following this process, if an applicant has been unsuccessful their file will be returned to their original college. As such, I am wondering if it is possible at this state to find out from St John's College whether my file has been returned as unsuccessful or not - as I have an important upcoming (non school) examination, I am keen to get a final decision one way or the other, although I am aware that this might not necessarily be possible at this stage.
    My name is ****** ****** *********-****, and my UCAS ID is **********. This is the email address linked to my application and my primary contact telephone number is ***********.
    I very much look forward to hearing back from you.
    With Best Regards,
    ***

    Hopefully will get a reply soon...

    I don't really care anymore. Part of me has kind of lost interest in a place at Cambridge and just wants to bring the process to a close now.

    Lol i emailed St John as well but mine was very short and straight forward and she replied to me this morning saying they dont have any information on my file in the pool at this stage.

    Don't bother to mail or phone. If they reach a decision they will contact you ASAP

    you are also applying for medicine? what college? what is your bmat if i may ask?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yes I am, I was pooled by Girton, which leaves me with very little hope really considering that I think only 1 person was fished from Girton for medicine over the last 2 years. I am, however, a gap year student so I already have my A level results which should be a plus. I didn't do well in the BMAT, I scored: 6.3, 5.8. 2A (or something like that). I believe that it's my essay which is seriously letting me down (as well as college of course), but who knows?

    How about you?
