    Most Cambridge applicants don't start thinking about applying until after their GCSE results. Besides, GCSE results aren't awfully important for Cambridge. But I guess there's no harm in being enthusiastic.

    It’s only two years. I like to be prepared.

    Oh please... I never said they were *that* important, I said you will be better off if you have strong GCSEs for medicine rather than 0 A*s...

    Good luck! Make sure to take your SATs early, you don't want them clashing with your UCAS app and perhaps Cambridge interviews (like it did for one of my friends). It's stressful, so take them at the end of Year 12!

    And make sure your extracurriculars are quite good. US unis love them to bits. At times (according to my US friend) they can make the final call, together with the essays you submit.
