    offer from Warwick and UCL. Not decided yet.......both are good. waiting for LSE.

    your right Iwill t ake Lse if that comes through.

    I share the stress bro. still suffering but you seem more relaxed on here ..........
    wow well done! Warwick and UCL are great and are still haven't given me replies. honestly the difference between one of them and Cambridge is marginal. by all means reapply if you want but i think you will end up very happy at UCL/Warwick

    hi everyone, i posted a pdf earlier with the stats from yesterday, sorted by pooling college. I am posting it again as a spreadsheet to make it easy to edit and sort in different ways. The data are from the table that Minerva made, compiled from this thread up to Jan 10.

    Hi everyone! I am an international student and applied for Engineering and got pooled but still heard no news . Is there chance I'll be invited to the interview? In case of rejection, when do they usually inform about that? Same question about offer, do they inform about it in January?
    I'm just a little bit nervous, they gave me 1 week-notice before the actual interview and I didn't have visa at the time ( in our country it takes up to 3 weeks to issue visa) , as a result I was put into Winter pool. Did someone have similar situation?

    It seems like everyone has heard something... D: I've heard nothing since my initial pooling email Applied to Fitz for PBS, pooled, and then nothing.

    Feels like I'm a little fish swimming in the ocean, not just a pool, so lost. Anyone else in the same situation

    dont worry, most of us havent heard. there is no way of knowing what this means as the college are quite slow in responding so you may have an offer or a rejection but not know yet. and you cant predict when you will hear. keep waiting! no chance for interviews at this point, anyway they dont interview pooled international applicants.

    At least we can say it is 'normal' in the previous years.

    Your situation is unusual. I suppose they could have considered offering you a Skype interview, but, if they were going to do this, I would have expected you to have heard by now. So I'm afraid you are now in the waiting game like everyone else

    Good morning all

    Latest update report added to the first post here. As I have a bit more time today I have added two tables to the regular format - one with outcomes by pooling college and subject, and one by pooling college.

    Good luck to today's interviewees. If they don't tell you when you'll hear, it's usually safe to assume that it won't be until next week.

    For the medics still waiting - it seems that the pattern from last year is repeating itself; ie, that many of you are still in limbo. I do hope that the admissions tutors will get on with making their final decisions, but it makes sense to assume that the final moderation meetings won't happen until after any re-interviews.

    the tl;dr version for today:

    331 posted on their own account
    75 direct offers (three people retrieved by their preference college)
    32 people invited to 35 interviews
    46 rejections confirmed - most colleges feature here now

    Commiserations, but those are both good unis with lots to offer, so onwards and upwards

    Edit: just as well you posted - found I'd counted you twice :o:

    Edit2: Have posted an amended version of today's report now.

    Sorry to hear about that. Did you not apply to imperial? IC has almost the same reputation as cambridge in the field of physics.
