    Got rejected from Queens' for Linguistics. Absolutely gutted but I knew it was coming, the exam was a killer! Onwards and upwards to look forward to Leeds!
    Sorry to hear.

    Yes. I was expecting to get rejected as I felt my interviews (particularly the general interview) were terrible. I didn't really 'click' with the tutors and felt I didn't express myself as well as I could have. Disappointing after the effort that goes into the application procedure but hoping to go to Durham, Edinburgh or KCL now and maybe do a masters in Oxbridge in a few years. Trying to stay positive!

    Or add the feedback to the existing commentaries on the Decisions "No Discussion" thread. That way the applicant's context is already clear.

    There's already over 100 decisions there

    That's a Cambridge thread ... it literally says 'Cambridge' in the name. (Another good idea, though ... )

    I think one of the big reasons why an Oxbridge rejection is always so disappointing is due to the effort put in. Think about it this way: if all you had to do was indicate your choice on UCAS, a rejection probably wouldn't affect you that much. Take that as a sign that the difference between Oxbridge and Durham, Edinburgh etc. isn't that pronounced in practice, but only appears so due to hype and reputation. Just focus on getting good grades and doing well wherever you go

    There's already one (though it's not a 'No discussion' one).

    So just get people to edit their decision post on that thread so it includes the feedback when they get it?

    I didn't make a "no discussions" thread this year because last year nobody really used it. A lot of people have posted their decisions in that thread though.

    I can notify them that they can do so ... how many will see the notification and how many will do it is another thing.

    Yes, I've been very surprised, and pleased, to see so many in this year's Cambridge thread. And the quality is really good.

    It's about to change again! Yeah, I'm procrastinating my coursework by trying to find different Sherlock images. Trying to find one that looks the best and not too small or too pixelated.
