    I got given mine in feedback last year, but I had to request the feedback. If they have the information somewhere, they have to give it to you if you request it, I believe.

      Yes, that is where I applied this year, and I now hold an unconditional offer from them.

      I know EXACTLY how you feel. I have heard nothing from St. Catz and I'm an international applicant too. Apparently Catz hasn't been handing out offers so far.

      Are you an international applicant? Because I've got an offer via letter from St Catz and I know a few others have received letters (and possibly emails) if that's any help

      Did you find it helpful, getting the feedback? Or just harrowing - knowing what you could've possibly done extra to clinch it?

      I can only see myself reapplying if I get an S or something in STEP this year

          Well, it just told me what I already knew. I was in the lowest 20% of interviewees when ranked for UMS. My average was 89% ish, so I decided to change that. A2 average was... better.

          I decided to only reapply with 4A*s and a 97% A2 average.

          It wasn't harrowing, as to clinch it I would have had to have done a lot.

            I was. I enjoyed that interview more than my first, but the first was pretty fun too.

            I found the maths part of the test easy, I cocked up the physics question completely. :lol: I just waffled for the chemistry.

              This is PhysNatSci at TitHall. Also, you must have had an impressive interview to get pooled. Don't worry yet!

              Oh I see, sorry :P
              The thing is, my interviews were pretty horrific! And my college was really under subscribed for my subject this year... (only just above 1:1), so I'm thinking they wanted to compare me to other applicants and have since realised I suck. :sad:

              Congratulations! I'm guessing I'd receive an email regarding my decision because it'd take more than a week for mail from the UK to reach my country (Malaysia). Apparently quite a lot of St. Catz applicants haven't heard a word from St. Catz yet.

                They can't have been as horrific as you imagine. What subject and college? Hope it all works out!

                I doubt there is any pattern, but what I was saying is that I have heard of Caius rejections and Caius offers, but I have not heard of anybody being pooled by Caius. Maybe they just 'forgot' to send letters to those who have been pooled or maybe they sent them the day after or something
                You were right with that pooling thesis! I received an email half an hour ago from Christ's that I was fished out of winter pool for economics. Don't know much about the college, but I AM RELIEVED!

                Good luck to all and enjoy your weekend...

                Fitz. I mean should this even be happening?
                what did you apply for. me and another applicant (both for econs) have been so confused as to why UK kids are getting emailed rejections already and we havent heard anything

                just a quick question-- were you told beforehand that you were pooled from caius?
