    Nah, I think it's assumed you're coming unless you say otherwise. Why wouldn't you?!
    Fair enough! I think I'm just panicking too much at the moment, it really isn't that long away! :eek:

    I've also got an interview for Clare for Medicine

    It's on the 6th and I'm traveling there the night before!

    How is preparation going for you both?
    Oh, that's exactly the same for me! I guess I'll see you there then!

    Prep is going ok, I'm just reading through my personal statement and SAQ and picking it apart, and then learning all the topics that I put in my SAQ in detail. Apart from that, just reading little bits from random books that seem interesting really. Looking through my personal statement, there are some bits I REALLY hope they don't ask me about, but knowing my luck, they're what the entire interview is going to be focused on! How's preparation going for you?

    Hey that's so cool! I've got interviews at 1.45 and 4 around Sidgwick, so I'll probably see you around, at dinner times and things! You're doing English, right? How are you feeling for the interviews?! I'm so, so scared but equally I can't wait to chat with the people there!

    Hey, has anyone else had a problem with the accommodation form? I sent it off to the email address they gave with "Interviews" as the subject heading yesterday morning, and I haven't received any automated reply at all, so I'm starting to get worried, considering my interview is on Tuesday, and I'm staying there Monday night. Any help would be appreciated!

    Ah nice, I'm doing medicine.

    Yeah probably, I met a few natural sciences people throughout the day, one guy at breakfast, and then one guy and one girl in the common room at about 12:15ish. We're you any of those? 😂

    I left like 10 minutes before that to go to an interview, although I think I was with the guy and the girl you were talking about beforehand 😂

    Ah ok, I must've just missed you 😂

    I doubt I've done well enough to get in tbh, but I can't really tell. That's the awful thing, they never really gave any indication of whether I was doing well or not!! The college was really nice though, so I really want to go now even more than I used to, but I think my chances are relatively slim 😂

    I think I screwed it up so oh well. I feel like it could've gone much better if they asked me about stuff I was more interested in but oh well....

    Don't think about the odds they'll make you lose sleep 😂

    Yeah, I really wished they asked me about topics that I could actually answer! 😂

    Ah well, there's nothing more we can do now other than wait and pray! Good luck, and hopefully things go our way! 😄

    Does anyone know when they typically begin to send out offers? I've heard people do receive them as early as before Christmas...

    I'm afraid you're going to have to be patient - Cambridge have always sent out offers after Christmas and it's got even later now that they do the pool before contacting applicants. I think the letters will be posted on 11th Jan this time, so you should hear on the 12th.

    Do we get sent an email/updated on ucas or do we have to hear by letter? I am away at school so think it would probably be sent to my home address..! :s

    I think that it is usually letter first, but that will be sent to your home address. They e-mail internationals though (on the day the letters are due to arrive, not the day they are sent!) so it may well be possible to request an e-mail too. UCAS tends not to get updated immediately.

    If we're guaranteed to get put in the pool (i.e. if our UMS average is >93), will we only hear on the 12th if we've got an offer? Or will we be told on the 12th that we've been pooled? thanks for all your help
