    Whilst I haven't applied to Cambridge myself i would still say that maybe you should just try to be patient. It's not like they would make a decision and not tell you. I haven't heard back anything from one of my choices yet. It sucks

    UCAS website says 31st March 2013 is the date by which universities should aim to give you your decision if you have applied by the 15th January. It also says that (again, assuming you've applied by the 15th January), universities must have given you their decision by the 9th May 2013.

    Probably because the generic information you provided, whilst technically correct, doesn't really answer the more specific Cambridge-specific question in this thread.

    Yes, but those are the only imposed deadlines which must be adhered to. Within that it's completely up to the college when they want to reply, and depends completely on their volume of applicants and interview scheduling - which no one other than the college itself can answer.

    Probably because you refer to decisions for non-oxbridge universities, but the questioner wanted to know about some sort of inner Cambridge agreement about offers being sent out before e.g. the winter pool is closed...

    I presume we should all hear from them during the next week or until 15th January, something like that.

    hi everyone,
    i know this is an exciting (or frustrating) moment to all of you!!
    I applied for PBS course in Magdalene
    yet i still haven't received any notice from them, neither email or letter
    (well, i am from Hong Kong but I don't think the location really matter)
    What should I do now? should I write an email to them to request an email or something?
    If you are in Hong Kong it's reasonable to email your college and ask for a pdf of your decision letter. You might not get an answer until Monday but that at least will be quicker than waiting for the snail mail.

    Hello, fellow Hong Konger! Believe it or not, I am in the exact same position as you are: applied for PBS at Magdalene and haven't heard anything yet. I emailed the admissions office yesterday to request an email but haven't received a reply. Not surprised because the office is probably closed over the weekend.

    Don't worry too much, we should receive the letter sometime next week from what I've gathered. 3rd January was the university-wide posting date for all decisions. As for the email, I'll let you know if I hear anything!

    Best of luck to you

    Sigh... I am from Hong Kong too, an applicant to Caius medicine. I still have not got any notification about my status. But I guess they are sending the letter by post and the earliest time of delivery is likely to be late next week. Best of luck to you anyway.

    Don't you think Caius will send emails to the remaining international applicants on monday?

    At least I hope so!

    There is a chance as many international applicants have sent a request to get an email for the copy of the letter. But the chance is low. You can request Caius to send you an email if you wish. However, they will only send you the email on or after Monday. You can check their Facebook page to see the posts by visitors to get an idea of it.

    They might just update the UCAS once all the pool stuff is settled. Then the UCAS will send you an email.

    We're in the same boat. I'm international too so I'm still waiting around for my letter; alternatively I've been considering emailing my college and asking them to forward me my decision letter.

    I'm not too sure, though. I think I'd rather have Schrodinger's cat still sitting in his box than opening it to find he's long since kicked the bucket.

    Hi guys!! I got my offer via email from Magdalene a few hours ago! If you haven't already done so, send a request for them to forward the decision letter by email asap. Just make sure to mention that you are an international student and they'll definitely get back to you! Good luck!
