    You're the first person to ever do that, even last year no one did that.
    Lol it's only fair I get a -1 myself XD

    Honestly it was just an accident, I was planning on clicking something else when my computer does that annoying hyper-jump upwards when it's slow at loading and it did it just as I was about to click.....

    I was thinking, this whole wait is like this..
    At the start I love everything about Cambridge, by the end I hate the things I once loved..

    Weird.

    Wow that was quite late! O_O The pool closed last Friday so all the colleges have already made their decisions. Still a lot of people yet to hear anything though so hold tight!

    Where did you apply to and for what subject?

    This intrigues me- so if you messed up your AS exams, resat them and then did very well in A2 and achieved 3A* in one sitting without any retakes at A2, would this be enough to negate the bad AS performance and resits (which they don't like) or would they still look at it?
    Post A-level they use your A2 results, and A*A*A* will get you auto-pooled.

    The A2 modules are generally harder, and they talk a lot about trajectory, so your AS marks wouldn't necessarily count against you (and might even be in your favour if it looked like you were late in finding your stride rather than a slacker in Year 12).

    Keep swimming fish!
    I was in your position 2 years ago! Had to go for an reinterview at Fitzwilliam, pooled by Emma for engineering.
    Got into Fitz! If you have a reinterview your chances are pretty good, I think it's ~50% just keep calm and try and think why your other interviews didn't go as well.
    Hopefully see some of you in Fitz!
    Hi! I have a reinterview for eningeering at Girton, but I was wondering when you had yours was it similiar to your earlier ones as mine were heavily technical and not a lot of general chat...
