    I hate feeling so reliant on them! I've not given up hope but I'm just being realistic, really. Which college/subject did you apply for this year, out of interest? And which subject might you change to?

    King's for English, I knew it would be incredibly tough but I loved the college and genuinely thought I'd fit in there, so I thought 'what the heck' and just went for it. I'm glad I did, and appreciate that being pooled is still an achievement in itself.

    I'm considering trying again for Music, but that would mean turning down my current offers. I'm worried that this may seem completely irrational, but this whole process is screwing my head up anyway. Ah well, what happens happens, right?

    I was considering the exact same thing, it's a difficult and frustrating situation that makes everyone a touch irrational i think!

    May I ask what your UMS average is? Well done!
    Hi, thank you!! I worked this out quite a while ago so this may not be completely accurate but I think it was between 92% and 93% - but don't think it was quite 93% so don't think I was autopooled?

    Her bmat was 7.8, 4.3, 4A and her UMS is around 98% I think?
    And to Robinson college
    My sister was straight rejected with better.... (and with medals in olympiads in chem/ bio and a load of ECs).

    It seems like medicine is just a load of consecutive coin flips at the top end.

    does anyone know if when applicants are recalled for interview, are they competing with other applicants for a spot or is it that the college will make you an offer if they like you?

    I applied for history at Magdalene which was just averagely popular :/
    The wait is excrutiating.
    The wait is definitely the worst part of the whole experience!

    It also depends on your interview's performance.

    Sorry, did not see the straight rejected part...

    The fishing part of the pool is over, what we're waiting for atm is for them to communicate the results of that, which should happen within about 10 days

    This really isn't very related to the whole pooling situation but I just wanted to compliment you on your username. It's awesome.
    Heheheh It was just the first thing that came into my head - I did wonder if someone would pick up on it though!

    Would you reapply next year if you didn't get fished?
