    There are so many horribly wrong things with this thread and none of them have to do with the OP's initial issue. (which, if their summary of the email is accurate, is in fact not an issue at all - professionalism or otherwise) Especially from some that should know better.

    There has been issues of bullying, ill-formed sniping and just some basic serious bad advice.

    Except these, which were about the only good things to come out of this:

    Assuming this as real, I've some sympathy for the OP. In underslept disappointment I've written some frankly mortifying Emails; these more usually to recently ex-partners than to admissions tutors, but still. And you'd think Cambridge, or anywhere, would have the sense to parse "I hope you'll live to regret this" as suggesting only the lad's determination to prove them wrong in their decision.

    Good luck to you pal.

    I feel sorry for you as I too have made many mistakes "in the heat of the moment", just one of those things lol

    Just write a genuine letter and see what they say, im very surprised Cambridge even bothered to write to your head of sixth as I am sure they can spend their time more wisely.

    I think there are better ways you could have voiced your disappointment. Maybe saying "Even though I have been rejected by the top University in the country, I am still determined to become a Doctor. Thank you for your time.". This little stunt might have just cost you your entire future career and you should now do your best to apologise to everyone who knows about it before it escalates even more.

    First of all, home applicants and international applicants don't compete for places. UK Universities have separate quotas and arrangements for how many places they give to the two categories. Cambridge and Oxford don't have to choose between the so called underprivileged privately schooled kids from foreign countries and state school home applicants.
    As far as I'm aware, this applies only to Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. For all the other courses applicants are competing against the entire field.

    I think it might have changed recently actually. A lot has changed since they lifted the cap for home students. International students are still in the minority though.

    If any oxbridge people are looking here btw she's already said she's in yr 10 and I can assure you that her arrogance and self superiority is not something a top uni would want.
    Oh, trust me, you find a lot of them at Oxbridge :lol:

    I actually thought she was a troll, but apparently all her nonsense is genuine which makes it even worse.
