    Oh nonono! In France despite choosing the scientific stream I still have 3h per week of philosophy, 2,5h per week of history geography and 2h of Spanish and 2 of English (useless for me as native speaker but still extra hours) and 2h of sport (which I enjoy) on top of my main subjects (maths, physics engineering) resulting in a 38 h week, on top of which we have homework etc. Soooo no, Id personally prefer A levels
    yeah that sounds worst...

    Same honestly, I keep reading this thread and getting increasingly impatient waiting for some kind of response. I feel constantly on edge and probably will until I hear back 😅
    I feel the same.... 😅

    I totally agree with what you said about exposure; I definitely wouldn't have applied if not for Ibz Mo and some other students I met at Gonville and Caius, as I feel it's so important for students (especially from areas like mine) to see that students like them can get into universities like Cambridge. My school has only ever sent two students to Oxford (and this was two years ago) and no students ever to Cambridge :eek: , my UCAS advisor went to Oxford himself so I'm hoping to get some help from him if I get called to interview but I am still very nervous
    Good luck dude!!

    To be fair if you get an interview you'll feel on edge for other reasons. The stress never ends.

    Good point, I never considered that. I might just have to accept being stressed from now on haha

    Oh okay right of course I'll let you off then. Is this just for King's?
    I think so. Well, I was surprised anyway as they started notifying CompSci students on the 8th, so I suppose anything could happen!

    Downing's interviews for HSPS are pretty earlier, commencing on the 28th of November. Hopefully I'll know if I've passed this first hurdle within a couple weeks

    Another Downing HSPS! I think you're the first or second I've found on here! I haven't heard back from them yet. I only got the last of my forms in last week so I'm not expecting anything until later this week or maybe even early next week - my friend got only 6 days notice for his interview last year, so who knows? :P

    Have you heard back?

    No news is good news! :P

    Downing's site say they like to give 2 weeks notice, which would be tomorrow at the earliest. Who knows if that's just PR or not? :P
