    Yeah, I'm Scottish and we don't have A* so I'm not sure, we do have a slight equivalent but it's not an official grade. And I'm doing 4 subjects but hope the offer is only on 3!

    Which college and subject? Only the most picky colleges ask for band 1s. Normally it's just AAA.

    Hi,

    This may sound like a strange question but how do you know whether you were pooled or not? As I was under the impression that the letter received would specify if you were getting: 1) an offer 2) pooled or 3) unsuccessful. But I've heard of some people getting the 'unsuccessful' letter then getting re-interviewed, which confused me slightly.

    So how do you know whether you have been pooled or not?

    Cheers

    Bio Natsci at Newnham - probably will be just AAA then.

    Sounds nice how is the accomodation layed out? like how many people share bathrooms and kitchens etc
    I stayed in Old Hall, which is mainly for freshers and is I think the most basic accommodation. I didn't see the kitchens unfortunately, but the bathroom situation was much better than I'd expected. There was a shower (and many sinks) right next to the room I stayed in, and there weren't many other rooms on the corridor... maybe three? So overall it looked perfectly fine. There are supposed to be ensuites as well, but those always go to third years I guess.

    London was great, what an amazing city! And SO BIG (and cold haha)! I went to LSE, which looks amazing, but has nothing to do with Cambridge.

    Very sad indeed to hear about you being pooled, it would have been great to have you as a college mate. But I wish you the best luck ever and hope to see you next year!!

    You get an "unsuccessful" letter, and it has a paragraph about pooling in it. For example, the second paragraph of my letter said I hadn't been pooled.

    Oh because mine doesn't say anything about pooling, so I assume it was a straight rejection. But a friend had the same scenario last year and got re-interviewed (without anything being said about pooling in their letter) so I am a bit confused :P

    Ah well, I'll be going to London come October now. I'm actually quite looking forward to it, I think it's the kind of City that's better to be in when you're young :P

    Wow you live in Malaysia, I'm so jealous! I know I've heard, when I tried to contact them over previous issues they took a few weeks to reply so their admissions staff aren't fantastically fast!
    You should come visit Malaysia sometime. Ah I see. So they do have a track record of not being very fast. Oh wells my fingers will stay crossed until I get the email on Monday. I'm ever so nervous.

    Don't worry. Someone has phoned the Catz adm office and they said they will send out all email on Monday
    Yup, I know. Still pretty nervous about the whole thing though. I wonder why some Catz applicants have heard from them but the rest of us haven't.
