    Rejected

    was inevitable.

    Looking back on it, to come this far, I'm pretty chuffed.

    If you said three years ago to me that I would have had an interview at Cambridge, I would've laughed in your face and told you to do one.

    But since mid-Y11 I've been motivated by this wonderful place, while I didn't succeed as hoped at GCSE - at A-level I have. Even though I've been rejected, I'm still going to a great uni.

    Thank you to jneill Peterhouse Admissions Murray Edwards Admissions and everyone else here.

    I've aimed for the moon and landed among the stars...
    Sorry to hear about the rejection, but among the stars you certainly are now. I wish you the best of luck.

    There is definitely as misconception that people at mature colleges are actual 'mature' adults. I'm at Lucy Cavendish, and I'd say that at least 90 % of people are early to mid-20's when they start. Plenty of them, myself included, just turned 21 when they start. Hughes Hall is great, has a vibrant social life and is located right next to Mill Road, so you'll get to go see normal people, which is something I sometimes miss.
    Thanks so much! I'm really excited now!! xx
