Firstly, congratulations to everyone holding Cambridge offers, and good luck to everyone currently in the Winter Pool.
I thought that this was the best time to ask this question, as I assume they'll be lots of former and current Cambridge students answering questions on various offer/pool threads.
This year I was rejected by Oxford (pre-interview) for English. I had wanted to apply to Cambridge because I thought I stood a better chance in terms of my stats. My UMS isn't very high owing to mitigating circumstances, but I was told by a current Cambridge student that they just wouldn't care. I chose Oxford by default.
Anyway, I currently hold an offer to study English at King's, which I'm very pleased about. After my degree, I intend to apply for English Studies at Cambridge for my Masters (I would appreciate if people's answers actually answered my question, not telling me just to get my degree and see what happens, because that is unhelpful) My question is, do they look at things like GCSEs and A2 grades, or do they mainly focus on degree classification?
Have you got yours?
