    I'm sure some of the current students said that they also email on the 12th when I was at my interview but I haven't seen anything else saying they do so I'm not sure 🙃 but they definitely send letters like all other colleges

    They didn't last year so would be good if they did for 2017

    Not first. (Naeco )

    Will I get an emailed decision?

    Just to add to Minerva's OP, please check if your college has confirmed HOW it will be contacting you.

    We know that all college decision letters will be posted on the 11th Jan. All colleges are also emailing non-UK addresses on the 12th Jan. They will be sent some time between 9am and 5pm GMT, probably. It's a time-consuming manual process performed, usually, by just one person per college.

    We don't know for sure which colleges are also emailing UK candidates on the 12th or shortly after. If your college has told you it is (or is not) emailing please comment on here or drop me a PM so I can update this post.

    The following colleges are confirmed (or are likely) to be emailing UK candidates on the 12th
    (NB. some might not be completed until the 13th - be patient...
    DO NOT CALL YOUR COLLEGE TO CHASE THEM!):
    Christ's
    Churchill (HT Insight314)
    Emma : Offer letters ONLY will be posted to applicants. All decisions (offer, pool and unsuccessful) will be emailed to applicants by 5:00pm. - (HT Naeco)
    Fitz
    Hughes Hall
    King's
    Murray Edwards
    Peterhouse : will be decision only, not offer conditions. (HT Peterhouse Admissions)
    St Catz : sending letters only to successful applicants, and emailing unsuccessful ones (HT solC)
    St John's (HT TH3-FL45H)
    Trinity
    Tit Hall (HT Christie_xx)

    Colleges definitely NOT emailing UK candidates:
    Gonville & Caius (HT Heywhatsuphello)
    Selwyn (HT liziepie)


    What about UCAS Track?

    It is likely UCAS Track will be updated from the 13th. Track might be the quickest way that overseas candidates, especially those outside Europe, will find out about offer conditions.*

    *Some Colleges will email the full offer letter, including conditions etc. Others (like Peterhouse) will just send the decision (offer/reject/pooled to another college).

    And Offer Holders thread is here:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4494528
    Corpus also said that they'll be emailing all applicants (offer holders will receive a letter as well).

    If we like in the UK do we get the letters on the 11th or is that just the day that they're posted?

    That's the day they're posted. They should arrive on the 12th, 13th if you're unlucky.

    Am I right in thinking that if I haven't been told that I'm in the pool by the 12th it will only be a direct offer or rejection? Or could that email on Thursday say that I've been pooled?

    The pool has already happened and is finished.

    Oh right, I applied to a heavily oversubscribed college so that doesn't bode too well

    No. That's not how it works. You won't know if you have been in the pool until decision day.

    Also, it might be worth mentioning that for succesful applicants there is the official CUSU offer holder group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1236838156395948/?fref=ts
    In recent years private companies have tried to make 'official' Cambridge offer holder groups in order to sell Freshers tickets to pub crawls that no one attends which has sparked a lot of controversy: https://www.varsity.co.uk/news/11679
    Please, don't let anyone think that they need to buy anything like this before getting here. And share this real, official group.

    For reinterviewers, is there any chance they will tell you at the interview if you are selected/rejected, after it is finished? Also will the same process apply for us that you will find out by letter/email depending on your college's method. I've been pooled to Selwyn, so should I expect only a letter and not an email for my result? When do you expect track to update for reinterview candidates once they receive the result?
    thanks!! (sorry i know there are lot's of questions there but I just have no idea what to expect!)

    No you'll get a decision letter/email later. On or after the 14th.

    UCAS will probably be a couple of days after the decision.
