    I'm in the summer pool for Law. How rare actually is this?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I know it is difficult but try to relax now tonight. Usually the summer pool is smaller than the winter pool. However, from what @MurrayEdwards has said today, it would appear that there are more students who have missed their offers this year so you are not alone. @MurrayEdwards have said " some" colleges have more spaces than others.

    So who knows but you would not be in the pool IF there wasn't a chance of being fished. Try to sleep tonight, I do understand the stress you feel. 😀

    I don't know how many get put in, but 5 or 6 have been fished out over the past few years according to the statistics (you probably already know that, though).

    I wish you knew one way or another! I have my fingers crossed for you

    Got A*A*AA in Biology, English Literature, Maths and Chemistry in that order. Unfortunately I needed an A* in two of Biology, Chemistry or Maths so I missed my offer for medicine. I was 1.5% UMS off the A* for Maths Contacted my college and they basically told me it's all over. I was a complete wreck this morning but I'm coming to terms with it. I'm still going to Bristol to do a course I'm passionate about! It's just so hard because I built up this picture of the next six years of my life in Cambridge and now I'm at a loss. So, so close but yet so far.
    I can't believe that closeness. I'm glad that you still have your course - and Bristol is obviously an amazing university.

    I think it's awesome that you got A*s in such wildly different subjects.

    So I got A*A*A* which means I have safely secured my space! I shall promptly shuffle over to the freshers thread. I was not expecting this, I am shook. :hat2:Also thanks to all of the lovely messages, within the spoiler I have tried to reply to as many as I could. I also got between 95-100% in all of my exams, and the local paper is using me as a case study (though I told them to put in 'worlds biggest Coldplay fan' so I hope they do mention that fact...)

    Thanks so much Sue xx



    Thank you so much! :hugs: I think I've really proved to myself I can do it now.



    SEE YOU IN OCTOBER MY FRIEND! *biggest high five* We definitely have to meet up



    :hugs: Thanks for being my rant buddy. Love you mate and we will definitely be meeting up since I live up North anyway!




    Go us go! *high five*



    Murray Edwards



    Aw thanks so much! I really do appreciate all of the love and support yourself and others have shown me. I do hope I have a good time! I got a HUGE hug from the Oxbridge advisor and I was told to "have the most amazing three years" of my life. He said it'll be tough but I just secured 3 A*s so I think I am capable.



    Honestly, I couldn't have done it without your support, and I think you've probably watched my confidence increase over the years. I'll do you proud, I promise!


    Wow, 3A*'s in those subjects... also keeping in mind your circumstances and previous grades, you're a complete beast. Well done, you went from fearing not even getting an interview to exceeding your already tough Cambridge offer. Hats off to you

    Hi! After reading a load of thread details about offers grade requirements I've noticed the general offer for Cambridge NatSci is A*A*A. I was able to get those grades but I didn't meet my offer of A*A*A*. Is it common for people to get a similar offer to me? UCAS does not say I've been rejected so I guess I'm still in with a shot (however minor).

    Congrats to anyone who met their offer

    Thanks so much oh my god! This message means so much, and thanks so much for taking the time to write it. It has been a bit crazy, and now I am really exhausted and just want to go to bed haha. I don't think it has quite hit me yet. I can't believe exceeded it though!!

    There's no stats on the number in the pool per subject.

    See what Peterhouse advised in their thread:

    If you are still showing as Conditional then you are still under consideration. It's possible you are in the Summer Pool.

    Did you send your raw marks, or UMS, to your college? Have they been in touch at all?

    my friend went up by 5 marks if that helps? I know it's unlikely that that will happen but if you're 1.5 UMS away it won't hurt you plus the school pays for it don't they?
    Thank you for your encouragement!! My school isn't paying it but I'm lucky that my parents don't mind and are in a position to be able to afford it. I need an extra 3 UMS which averages to 1.5 across C3 and C4 so I'm just silently praying

    (Original post by Forecast)
    Depends on the school.
    Yeah mine aren't lol rip

    Oh wow, that's tough. Sorry to hear that. Clearly you are top quality and Cambridge make mistakes sometimes. Good luck, by the sounds of it you're going to make a great doctor.
    Thank you so much. I'm feeling a lot better about it now, I've just never had a real academic setback before (I know that sounds ridiculous and I'm obviously still very proud of my grades). The main thing I'm upset by is that my college told me they'd want to know my UMS in the case of a near miss, but when my teacher called them to let them know apparently they'd hardly let him finish his sentence. I know they're under no obligation to take me as I missed the offer but to get my hopes up with a promise of some flexibility I think was really unfair.
