    Heyyy Sophie, a bit late of a reply, but I was also just looking up threads to join in relevance to Murray Edwards, and this seemed to be the only thing posted.

    Name: Fia

    Applying For: Architecture

    GCSE's: 1A* 4A 5B 1C

    AS: AAA

    Predictions: A*A*A*

    Why Murray Edwards?
    Their drive and passion for putting women at the forefront really appealed to me, especially since I’m going into a field where we don’t get much representation. I also liked their general friendly atmosphere and felt I would be comfortable there.

    Fun Fact: well, it’s not really a fun fact, but I’m an AS repeat student 😋

    Why Murray Edwards? To be completely honest, there isn't a super specific reason but I do like the campus a lot and it's of course a plus that they encourage female empowerment so much
    Fun fact: I've never been to the UK

    Name: Freya
    Applying For: Law
    GCSEs: 1A* 4A 5B 1C
    AS: ABBB
    Prediction: A*AA (plus A* at EPQ on a law topic)
    Why Murray Edwards? Everyone told me that when I visited the 'right' uni I would know it was right, and on the open day in Cambridge I felt totally out of place at every college I visited, until I got to Murray Edwards. Specifically, their library is one I felt I could revise in without distracting myself with the ceilings/bookshelves/paintings for hours.
    Fun Fact: My cousin went to Medwards when it was still New Hall in the 70s/80s.

    Are you following @MECCambAccess on Twitter, they have recently tweeted that they have sent out emails about Architecture, History of Art and Land Economy applications. Guess the rest won't be long now then...

    Thank you!

    I kept checking the Medwards official account because that's where it was last year, but I checked at half five because I figured anything later would be outside office hours.

    No, Law wasn't a subject they wanted it for. I guess that's because they welcome Law applicants who have all science subjects, so only some of us could submit written work from school.

    Hello all! It’s lovely to meet you 😊 I have an interview on Monday (11th) and I can’t wait!

    Name: Safia

    Applying for: psychological and behavioural sciences

    GCSE’s: 5.5A* 4A 1B

    AS: AAAB, D3 in Pre U

    Predictions: A*A*A and D2

    Why Murray Edwards: I actually had an open application but I am truly pleased I have been allocated to Medwards! Its informality and celebration of women is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

    Fun fact: I have only 45% hearing and work part time as a model 😊
