    Thanks guys, I actually tried applying to Cambridge, but I was rejected :P
    I tried to get a feedback but I applied after the deadline, not sure if I could receive one.
    You applied to Cambridge after 15 Oct 2015? In which case they won't give you formal feedback.

    But you can still informally email a few colleges to ask them their view of your academic situation for a possible application to entry in 2017.

    I applied in Oct 2015 through UCAS, got rejected, and requested feedback after their "feedback request deadline", I was told that "they will try", still haven't heard anything yet..

    Politely chase it up. Explain you are considering re-applying. The worst they can say is no.

    I find that aspect completely bizarre and ambiguous.


    What if you've taken accredited exams outside school? What if you've taken a GCSE, but not cashed in the grades? What about your KS2 SATs? What if you are a qualified lifeguard? Does your driving license count?

    What aspect is ambiguous?

    Accredited exams taken externally must also be declared.

    Your driving licence is not an academic qualification...

    It has a theory component to it.

    What if you've been ordained as a religious leader?
