    Wow, this is early. Concentrate on your GCSEs, and then you can join in the applicant bants. Congrats for being ambitious and eager, I guess.

    Hi now that GCSEs are almost over, those of us who want to can start getting more hyped about uni! Maybe it'd be an idea to add more information/links/icebreaker questions to the OP, like in the 2018 thread?

    Is anyone else here going to Trinity Open Day on the 26th? I'm so excited to see it properly at last! I'm applying for linguistics, by the way

    I was thinking of Trinity college. But I was told that all colleges are exceptional so sticking to one college isn't a good idea. So I'm fine with any college .

    Same! :highfive: I see what you mean; I was thinking of making an open application at first and I'd be fine with it if I were pooled but I've totally fallen in love with Trinity. I'd prefer a big college with lots of people, as well.

    Hello!

    Hoping to do Maths, and at Trinity College, but also not really any preference.

    How is everyone feeling about results day?

    That is great! Even I have never visited it but out of all the colleges that I've seen and read about, I've loved Trinity the most. It also has a great legacy in mathematics.

    Yass the Trinitarians are taking over :P my boyfriend is a prospective trinmo too; I'm probably in the minority as a non-STEM applicant aiming for Trinity (though linguistics is STEM...sort of).

    I'm getting more apprehensive now that it's 6 days away, and I want to feel that I've done myself justice :s but with regards to Cambridge and GCSEs, I went to Trinity's open day this year and the AT literally said that GCSEs just aren't that important, so it's definitely not the end of the world if any of us get a smattering of As.

    Nice username btw etothepiiplusone ^_~

    I've already received my results. My IGCSEs aren't that great but Cambridge's selection process gives me a bit of hope.

    Are you doing any serious extracurricular activities? I've heard that many people who get into Trinity are from an Olympiad background. So I'm doing nothing much other than Olympiad prep.

    Anyways, how do you know about Euler's identity?

    Lucky :/ you can't have done too badly; as long as you got an A* in maths and didn't get any seriously low grades, it shouldn't raise any eyebrows (and I've heard stories about people getting in with a D at GCSE).

    I do a lot of music and drama anyway, out of genuine enjoyment, so I'm going to carry on with that as much as I can even if I don't mention it on my PS. In case I apply for French & Russian (MML) rather than linguistics, I'm planning to do some cultural super-curriculars related to those, and for linguistics I've done a MOOC, a couple of relevant competitions and a lot of reading and I will be doing an EPQ, an essay prize and the UK Linguistics Olympiad. I guess there's not much else you can do for maths except reading/independent research; a summer school might look good but that depends on your Olympiad performance.

    It's quite well-known, as identities go! I like maths I'll be doing further maths and probably applying for York's maths & linguistics joint course. There is a BMO prep thread already btw if you haven't seen it (https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=4728232). How did you do in this year's IMC?
