I know! My friends been pooled for HSPS from them as well! Mine was on the 11th, we have seen each other at some point!
Yup, I know somebody else on TSR applied to Downing for HSPS and got pooled, too!

And almost definitely! Hoping this turns out alright in the end

I know I haven't and won't be fished because they do it in alphabetical order apparently...
Do what in alphabetical order?

Just got home from holiday to find out I have been pooled for the second year in a row (lucky me!). This thread was amazing last year - kept me vaguely sane!

Last year I was pooled by Girton for English, and reinterviewed by Robinson (then rejected)

This year I have been pooled by St Johns for Education with English and Drama... The wait is on!

Good luck to everyone


P.s. - is autopooling only relevant for A Level applicants, or do you think they may autopool post-result candidates who have strong grades (I did the Cambridge pre-U)
According to this the autopool requirement for post A-level applicants is A*A*A* or better, you just have to change that to Cambridge Pre-U

i have been invited to an interview at Selwyn, does that mean no other colleges will now consider my application?
The re-interview success rate seems to be about 50% and the pool rate about 30% so its very good.

Guessing calls for the day will stop about 18:00. Looks like hope is becoming futile.
Is this right? nothing after 6?

The order they fish the students is in the alphabetical order of the course, I don't know if this is true... I hope not :-(

I wouldn't be so sure, on last year's thread people were still getting calls till about 7/8pm.. Maybe even later

I know... probably because many applications are still under consideration...
But really why do they have to make this wait so horrible? Just call us and tell us now huhu
I know - being left hanging feels horrible. I wish they'd just contacted everybody once they'd made the final decisions to take / reject, instead of all this suspense... And some colleges jumping the gun and calling early hardly helps!

Guessing so, it looks that way anyway, not much posts on the forum about calls. Might be a few more to come though..

They do say that they contact you between the 5th and 7th if you're going to get an interview, and direct offers can come up until the 15th.

Don't lose hope. We're all in the same boat
i don't see why they don't tell us all asap!? why make us wait? i don't get it

(Original post by spacemenrule94)
Don't. Resist the temptation. If they say on the pooling letter they send not to phone colleges asking about whether you've been fished, they've obviously had bad experiences with overzealous applicants.

If anything, you'd risk putting off colleges from considering you. Wait this one out :console:
eeek fine ill leave it

I applied to Girton, so basically, I have no chance... I just want to know, so I can start to focus on my other offers!! What about you?

When I was on the phone to the Admissions woman, she said that they couldn't email people if they'd been fished because they have to (for some technical reason) send out all the offer to pooled people at the same time. That means that they have to wait until people have been interviewed.
