    Just found out I was pooled to Murray Edwards! I don't really know anything about it. What are people's opinions on it?
    Great! But then I would say that wouldn't I? Many congratulations!

    I got an offer from Newnham for Psychology! Although looking at everyone else's I feel very undeserving. I got AABB at AS, the highest UMS was in psychology and it was only 89%, so I really don't know, they must have liked me! Just wanted to share that for future applicants who don't think they're good enough, I didn't! You never know until you apply. Go for it!
    Congratulations!

    I'm just glad I'm going to get my life back. I've had so many problems from doing so much work and now I don't have to. I don't have to get an A*. I won't have to write an essay every week. I can get off the treadmill of life for a while.
    Well I hope you just cope well. I wasn't coping that well as i had convinced myself Cambridge was the only place for me and I still believe in that it's just my frustration has turned into determination. Don't fall off too much though, keep working hard

    i've been given an open offer (with Girton as my underwritten college if no one takes me from the summer pool). does anyone know which colleges typically fish students from the summer pool - i.e. the ones that normally take the most pooled students in the winter pool? or is it just random?

    jneill do you have any experience w this?

    thanks
    Congratulations on your offer!

    The Open Offers scheme has been run in Medicine and Vet Med in the past but is being expanded to more subjects this year. Almost every College has candidates who miss their offer so if you meet yours you will be very sought after in the Summer Pool and could well end up anywhere. In most subjects (i.e. not maths) the Summer Pool involves such small numbers and is so dependent on the vagueries of the exam system (e.g. if A level English tripped up a lot of people then more arts and humanities subjects will be fishing) that there is a lot of variation and past years will be a poor guide to the future. Don't worry about Colleges, just do your best to meet or exceed your offer!

    I haven't got a letter (but got email with offer), if it doesn't come tomorrow what should I do?
    as long as you've got email, that's fine.
    Just wait patiently for the letter to follow. It will come eventually.
