    I usually try to keep neutral stance on colleges, but I really like your new home.

    Definitely better than your first choice.

    Weird, though, none of ex-Cambridge in my family was there. But other people I know really liked it and I'd much prefer to be at a college which is not in the town centre.

    My track still hasn't updated, I've sent my college my A level results even though I exceeded their a level offer. I'm a maths student so I took step and got 1,1,2 with 6 marks off the 1 in step 3. What is happening? If Cambridge reject me will I automatically get into my insurance? Is there anything I should do?

    Never thought it would feel this **** to go to such a great uni. Wish I got rejected in January.

    Are you at least sending your marks to your college? I saw on the other thread that you're still conditional, and there's always a chance that what you think is too far off might not be too far off.

    The whole application system is really harsh, in my opinion - to have 2 options and no certain idea of where you're going until a few weeks before term begins is kind of ridiculous. I hope you get a firm answer soon and can process it.

    Turns out that the problem I'm having with my core practicals is a wider problem Doonesbury, my school say everyone in the year passed.
    Hopefully it's only this that's causing the issue and you've met the rest of your offer.

    If you exceeded Cambridge's offer, then you should get confirmed. Be patient and contact them tomorrow, if you dont hear back.

    If Cambridge rejects you and you meet the offer conditions from your insurance, then you will get confirmed there.

    Call your college to find out what whether they'll accept you, put you in summer pool or release you to the insurance.

    Your college is still reviewing people's marks to see whether they want to keep their narrow misses. Send in your actual marks to your college to (for A-levels) as they don't receive marks / UMS automatically.

    They haven't; for maths the STEP paper is more important. Hopefully the advice I've given will help but they're going to have to be patient as they may get pooled

    there will be a fair amount of activity in the Summer Pool (not masses but a bit more than normal I expect) so things aren't finished yet..
    Interesting....
    Is it because of the new A-level reform?
    Was it like that when they introduced A* for the first time? My daughter was the second batch of students after the introduction of A*, so I've been wondering what sort of effect/s reforms like that would make on universities' admissions, esp. after a result days.

    Did you manage to get hold of anyone in your college to let you know what the issue is? If you haven't already, call / email them with confirmation of the A* in Chemistry. And see if your teacher can get you your other results.

    Best of luck. Still hopeful it's the admin issue with practical marks recorded as fail on UCAS.

    I didn't. I had all my education, including university, in a country I'm originally from.

    But I have dozens of ex-cambridge students among people I know quite closely, including 5 in the family (I mean, the family I'm married to & hubby & daughter) ..
