    If you're applying for a subject with a pre-interview assessment then you won't hear anything until after the 14th November as we need time to mark the scripts. This is a University-wide embargo.

    If you're applying for a subject with an at-interview assessment or Mathematics or Music then you might hear earlier. Every College is different but at Peterhouse we're only just starting to look through files as we start to get on top of the mountains of paperwork which need to be filed. Even preliminary decisions can't be made before we have the first subject moderation spreadsheets, which are released on Friday. These spreadsheets contain further contextual information and allow comparisons across the University rather than just within a College.

    TL;DR Relax, stop refreshing your email, it is too early yet
