    do you know when they stop making calls today? Now is a bit late anyway
    It's late but we international applicants haven't even got the decision letters/emails. at least that applies to most of my friends. (only 1 or 2 received the decisions)

    Got pooled by Clare for Natural Sciences.

    There's no one at my house and we don't have an answering machine.. Do you think they would email/call my mobile if they can't get hold of me on my landline?
    i would definately think so and they send you a letter anyway. the guy said to me that they really just are phoning to take you out of your misery

    I think that was generally. I haven't heard anyone fished for history today, only yesterday.
    The fact that people were fished yesterday and haven't been so today is rather nerve-wracking. Hopefully this is just specific to the colleges involved as opposed to a more general attitude regarding when history fishing should take place.

    I think it is. People were saying how only some colleges 'jump the gun' or whatever it was, so I'm assuming the rest hold off and don't start telling people until they're meant to. We must all keep smiling

    RIGHT, I'm wrenching myself away from my landline/computer for five minutes to make myself a cup of tea. Still have my mobile on me, however!

    we basically went over the questions i did in the test, nothing but that what about you ?
    So you didn't get asked about personal statement or anything general right? I didn't and that's all I was wondering. But did you not answer any more questions during the interview; questions which you hadn't answered in the test?

    Just out of interest, where did you get that stat?
    The admissions statistics page for Cambridge here then choose:
    When - Last 5 years
    Show - Applications, Identify winter pool offers, acceptances.
    For - Medicine.

    You'll see the graph showing the number each year made offers and also how many of them were through the pool. Hope that helps.

    Same it's KILLING me! And not sure, at the time I enjoyed them, all the interviewers were lovely and really interesting and interested in what I said, I didn't feel too stupid, but there was so much more I could have said (which obviously I only realised afterwards...)
    But with comparably 'low' UMS I guess our interviews must have been okay to get us into the pool
    How were yours?
    Yeah my experience sounds really similar! I really enjoyed my interviews because I went in knowing I was probably a few steps behind (in comparison with those who have glowing academic records) so I just threw caution to the wind and hoped that it was enough! I think we should be quite proud though, knowing that we are still being considered, I just really hope it's enough.
