    So anybody up for some architecture fun tomorrow? (by fun i mean getting your hopes crushed by 4 cambridge tutors, after you've just spent an hour futilely trying to remember how to pick up the pencil and write an essay and draw a bunch of buildings)
    Good luck to everyone with their Cambridge interviews this week.🍀🍀🍀
    I think St John's still have another interview day to go and it will be interesting to see how many are there . I counted about 16 at last week's so I'm guessing the applications for St. John's were really high this year . It was still a really good experience though .

    I know how you feel but it was really not as bad as I had imagined. Just make sure you know how to find the interview rooms beforehand . I got lost and had a last minute panic ! Everyone is friendly and helpful. Good luck. 🍀

    I was surprised to see so many girls applying for architecture. (not complaining though )

    It went better than I thought. I'm a bit uncertain about the written test, but the interviews went pretty smooth. I pretty much just talked my way through the 20 min, until they had to stop me. (Don't know whether that's good or bad...guess we'll see in a month)

    That's good!! At least you talked about the points that you wanted to get across, whereas I don't think I had... oh well, we'll all see in a month time

    Lots of girls at Christ's too - I wonder when the stats on that come out?!
    Just looking at the stats - I see that nearly twice as many girls applied than boys, twice the number got offers and a smidge more than twice as many accepted.
    That last figure suggests that the conversion rate of offer->place is slightly lower with boys. I wonder if that's down to exam performance or personal choice.
    I only know of 2 people who would turn down an offer from Cambridge if their preferred option came through (a girl and a boy).

    Just seen that History of Art admitted 1 boy and 22 girls in 2015!
