Indeed, Miss Clarke did vow to win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, or something. Who honestly cares.
The very fact that she complained about being rejected shows just how little she knows about the wonderful world of education.
tell u what
think what you want
I for one think that Miss Clarke is a sad, bitter, arrogant young madam who loses her temper as a spoiled brat would when things don't go her way.
Most children behave like that aged 3 or 4: Miss Clarke is 17.
She will be 18 this year...some people in my year at school won't be 16 until late August and even early September. The current upper sixth (who have just received their A Level results) are those born between September 1984 and (the end of) August 1985. So whilst she is 17 now, by the end of August she will be 18.
If I don't get in, I guess I'll be upset. But I won't feel hard-done-by. I'll take a year out and apply again.
Remember, if you're that desperate to go to Cambridge, you could always apply to read Theology with Education Studies at Homerton.

That's the spirit. What course will you apply for?
I'm thinking about Geography (or maybe History).
As for the Colleges, Selwyn looks quite nice, but having said that, I haven't ruled out St Peter's, Oxford yet.
