    You know that National Schools Employability Challenge by PwC I entered? I got into the final!!

    I think there were thousands of entrants and only 40 got to the final.

    However, I'm going on the Cambridge residential which when I applied for I didn't think I'd get - but because SOMEHOW I got both, they clash. What a joke. So I won't be going to the final

    This sucks so much...
    Awww!! I mean tbh it's fine cause if you have Cambridge it'll look better on an application
    What is the Cambridge thing?

    congrats!

    this makes me doubtful of whether I'm getting in since I was one of the first few people to be interviewed. thought I'd have a reply by now

    It's a residential at Peterhouse for two days where we have lectures, a supervision, tours and we meet some undergraduates! I got the reading material for my supervision today and THERE'S SO MUCH. It's like 80 pages of really small text lmao...

    I was hoping it was, but instead if it's not the course we wanted it would be based closed to it and/or based off our A-level choices.

    I've got a lecture either on linguistics or archaeology and then a supervision on politics and history.

    The topic for our supervision is medieval European history, focusing on Italian City Republics! No idea what that's about but it seems like it should be interesting!

    Hoping I get the sutton trust summer school place at St Andrews which is on economics though!
