Guys I'm a bit worried because I'll be at school tomorrow, and I never get signal there. Will it be a problem if I got a phone call at say 10am from a pooling college and then I didn't reply until after 4 o'clock? Or would I get an e-mail? As you can probably tell mild hysteria has set in, was hoping someone would put my mind at rest!

Also, a question I probably don't want to know the answer to but yet I'm still asking: is there an average UMS/interview score that would almost certainly guarantee an offer or a good chance in the pool? Like for example 99% UMS/an 8 at interview?
I would imagine the college would understand you calling them back at 4 esspecially as it would be unreasonable for them to expect you to recall during college times (some don't allow phones).

I can't see someone with 99% and an 8 not getting an offer but without knowing our interview scores will just have to wait

If you average over 95%, didn't have a terrible interview and are state schooled you have a good chance, I'm sure it'd be okay if you reply a couple of hours later and from what I've heard they might email aswell about re-interview

Sounds good what did you apply for?
Land Economy at Cambridge, unrelated chemistry, economics, political and social sciences courses elsewhere

Straight Law would've required a coherent Law-only PS

Well, 42 is a very high score. Congrats And about the interview...well, I think that the more you had to think and challenge yourself, the better

I'm doing matura (there was no Cambridge in my plans when I was to choose school; in fact I decided to apply in September). LO XIV in Wrocław. And you?
I attended PALO (VIII Prywatne Liceum) in Kraków. Which college did you apply to?

If you were going to take a gap year and you have A*A*A A and high IGCSE's, would you guys recommend applying for law?
If you were already going to take one then sure. Taking a gap year to reapply is not so straightforward.

Im at Robinson. No one hates robinson its more a lackadaisical attitude as it doesn't have the prestige of older colleges.

my friend's mobile contract has ended and her phone is not working at all, if she gets pooled will they definitely call her or will she be likely to get an email?
