anyone applying to cambridge? which colleges? how hard is it to get in?
I've narrowed down my decision to: Trinity, Queens, Selwyn.
Trinity because its the best, most prestigious college in my opinion, and the others cuz they're closest to teh faculty. It's probably very hard to get in, more so in the larger colleges.
Where are you going then Nylex? What did you apply for?
what do you think went wrong in the interview? what subject were you applying to?
from what i heard trinity is full of posh nobbers but i might be wrong or you might not mind so hey...
anywho good luck ever1 thinking of applying hope u get good as's and dont let nerves get the better of you at the interviews.
1. aghhh!! the pressure!!
2. i've heard that if u apply to cambridge, other places turn u down because they think there's no chance u'll go to them if cambridge accepts u. and dont laugh. i have heard this happen. my v bright friend applied to 5 unis (she got almost all A*s for gcse and had 5 ASs all As behind her). 3 out of the 5 unis she applied for rejected her for no reason, and at the end cambridge did too!! so she has only one uni on her list now! its so unfair.
3.this one's a question mark, but i suspect that cambridge students are expected 2 do loads of work independently. if ur the sort who needs no pushing and does work & research for ur own initiative & need little help, u'll do amazingly and enjoy yourself at cambridge, but if u r constantly asking for help like me... well u get the point.

And surely that isn't true Phil about early application? I mean, I personally would want to apply early anyway to get things out of the way, and I'm sure many others would. Plus, its always best to apply early for any uni so that yours is one of the first applications they consider.
If you apply to Cambridge, you cannot apply to Oxford or vice versa which I think is s***. If your turn down by one you should be able to have the option of the other!
Just thought I'd jump in here with my pointless thoughts.
cambridge is best and sum would say imperial is second, its certainly better than oxford at science/maths. the best thing about oxford and the reason probably y loads of ppl go ther must be the reputation it has.
I agree Oxford reputation is why loads of people want to go. I want to go because I like the course. But I know I'd never get the grades required so I'm considering Cardiff and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
what I actually meant was how do u decide which college in cambridge to apply to?
