It's that time of year guys! Interviews have come and gone, decisions have been made and letters and emails are coming out to your houses and inboxes.

This thread is for you to post decisions from Cambridge only in, if you want to discuss the decisions please post in this thread. I don't want to have to dish out warnings for posts like in the Oxford thread, but I will if I have to. This means no "wow, we both got in for Law!" posts - simply quote the person in the discussion thread if you want to.

Please get the form to fill in your decision below by quoting this post and copying the relevant bit. Only fill in the bits you want to. There's no need to list all your GCSE subjects and their grades, nor all the modules you took for AS/A-level and their marks :p:
