    Jesus poolee over here! And you're right, haven't see many around on this thread. Pooled for medicine.
    What are the chances that the Jesus College caretaker accidentally picked up the box with our files and they are now locked away in a storeroom far from the reach of any admissions tutor who would show an interest...
    Damn it don't say that! XD Good luck for getting fished though!

    do you think it's best to give up hope now, is it feasible that we might recieve an offer over the next few days (I mean I know that it's technically possible but is it likely.) Sorry for such down post but the pool is literally (mela-dramatic teenage over-reaction coming right up) RUINING MY LIFFFFFFEEEEEEEEE

    I was like you once.....wasting away at the bottom of the pool (still am), not living my life since what may seem like a very VERY long time ago......about 2 days? :P (Feels like forever doesn't it?).

    I know it seems hard to get over the waiting now but all I can suggest is to just accept the worse and start trying to find positives in all the other places you've applied to. What is it about them that you'd be looking forward to? Hopefully this would at least help you feel better and let you realise there is so much, in fact much more than Cambridge out there!

    Ah tis a shame but don't worry! I'm sure you'll now start to find plenty more to look forward to at all the other unis that will/have given you offers! The wait is over, rejoice! And best of luck to you to wherever you may end up

    Haha do you know it certainly feels like that! Oh god imagine! :O
    I'm also really confused about our Jesus letter? They state "unfortunately they haven't selected us at this stage" but does that mean that they are still looking, or what?

    Talk about confusing.

    so much easier said then done, because this is the only resource us poolees have so it's quite hard to relinquish, even if it's does more harm then good.

    Hi Everyone,

    Am new to this thread and I know late in the day. Am the mother of super stressed linguistics applicant and trying to instil calm but without much success.

    Ok so he is pooled but no word since. Wonder if anyone knows how or if they work out UMS when we have combination of Pre U and A Level? Obviously there is no equivalent AS for Pre U so we have a slightly artificial UMS as it's only on 2 subjects? Anyone any idea?
    "Four AS/A2 UMS averages will be generated and presented in four adjacent columns, for applicants who have provided UMS scores for at least three subjects, with a total potential score of at least 600 across the three subjects. Applicants who cannot be ranked will be grouped together at the bottom of spreadsheets, with a clear means of identification (they will be allocated to 'quintile' Z)."

    It is perhaps a disadvantage of Pre-U shared with IB that they don't have AS results so Cambridge look at GCSE & predictions but don't rank. However the system is designed to try and avoid disadvantaging the applicant.

    Good Luck to him, he has done well to get this far.

    How's everyone doing today?
    Tense. Not been rejected but not been fished.

    I've been trying to console myself by seeing what I'd miss out on if I got in and it's looking quite good. Durham has some excellent student societies which I even Cam don't have which I like the look of.

    A lot of lucky Pembroke scientists have been fished though, and I'm worried because I sure haven't been :<

    I really want to e-mail Pembroke and ask what's going on u__u

    hey guys.i'm happily at one with my imminent rejection. (it was so good actually being able to sleep again last night). i'm only here because of this wierd comradey feeling i've got going on. and i love hearing of people getting offers. :L

    but i do want to say for the benefit of those still hoping....
    those rejected saying they were rejected should maybe say where from for what when they give their sad news??? then we wouldn't get everyone asking for the details.
    i promise i will give details when i hear.

    I'm almost 100% sure that i've gained a couple of crows feet since friday- sorry gross metaphor.
    And yes this is the logical, sensible, grown up thing to do, forget about cambridge, fall in love with durham, but it's ridiculously difficult, i think the entire admissions process might have been designed with teh sole purpose of making applicants grow this weird emotional attactment to cambridge, you go through so much and its nigh on impossible to let go
