    Hi, thought I'd join you in your thread!
    I've applied to Cambridge, Exeter, Warwick and Newcastle and will apply to Duhram sooner or later. I have an AAA offer from Exeter (my second choice) and an AAB offer from Warwick.

    Hi, I've applied to study Classics at Cambridge (Pembroke College). I'm beginning to think that I haven't been invited to interview. I was wondering if anyone else has applied to Cambridge Classics, if so have you heard anything back? Should I expect the worst?

    I've applied to Queens' and haven't heard anything either. I've decided I'm too busy to panic at the moment and am putting it off at least until Monday as that would be two weeks before the first interview date!! People do get invited very late on, so I don't think there's a need to really worry yet - remember if they think you have a chance of meeting the grades, they will probably interview you.

    I got an interview for Cambridge Classics last Friday (St Johns)
    I wouldn't worry, I seem to have got my invitation unusually early!

    I have applied to Cambridge classics (Homerton) but haven't heard from them yet . Just checked the interview info and they've only invited natural science applicants. The emails are sent on the 3rd and 4th week of November so I guess we should wait ..

    It took 3 exactly weeks. Aw don't worry! It takes ages for them to answer back to everyone. I was just lucky, but I'm still waiting on Newcastle and Bristol. I'm sure you'll get an offer soon
