    That makes my A*A*A History offer seem like a walk in the park :eek:

    If it isn't a joke, do Cambridge honestly expect that to be achievable??

    BTW guys, just about to firm!
    Yes, they expect whatever offer they give you to be achievable. Challenging, but achievable.

    You'll probably find it's not 5 A*s in facilitating A-level subjects.

    This guy received a 4 A* offer (and met it – I know the guy) whilst homeless. He's now involved in a lot of Seren Network sutuff for the Welsh Government to get more Welsh people into Oxbridge.

    Oh I've heard about his achievements. His accomplishments are absolutely amazing, but I honestly don't know how people do it, my highest respects.

    That's not a bad tactic to be honest!

    That said it really depends – I did 5 A-levels and got the standard A*AA offer for MML.

    Someone in the offer holders fb group said that their offer is A*A*A*A*A* (for ANSC)...my offer suddenly sounds easier to achieve.
    However...how is that even possible? Or is it a joke? lol
    Was he an international/has he already completed a number of A levels?

    Honestly doing it is the worst bit I think. I went to do it before school on weds and ended up crying in the common room and chickening out, but then I made myself go through with it at break time that day and I feel so much less stressed.
