    Hello! I’ve applied to King’s simply because it’s well known for English but starting to regret that choice now as I feel it will lower my chances of getting in!

    GCSES: 2 9s, 4A*s, 4As and a 7
    ALEVEL: English Lit, History and Philosophy (predicted A* A A respectively). Also did the EPQ
    ELAT: There’s 3 of us applying for English from my school and the days leading up to the ELAT we were laughing saying that it can’t get worse than the previous theme of food. We were wrong.

    Good luck to everyone hearing back about interviews!

    Edit: also applied to Durham, Southampton and Birmingham and had offers from them all. Just need to make a 5th choice
    Durham gave you an offer?!

    hi! Didn't know this thread existed so I've joined late, just wanted to freak out about getting an interview today!
    I'm Mary,
    Uni choices: Cambridge,Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter and Glasgow - only offers from Glasgow and exeter so far
    Alevels: English, Spanish, Art, History (AS only)
    Predicted grades: A*A*A*
    GCSEs: 9A*, A, B
    College: Cauis - not much of a reason other than it's beautiful (that courtyard really got me) and the English students there on the open day won me over
    Why Cam: i really fell in love with the atmosphere of Cambridge when i visited and my whole family live in oxford - whilst its a second home for me I can't imagine going to uni with my grandma, great-aunts, uncles, second cousins etc all half a mile away.
    good luck everyone!

    Congratulations !
    I also applied to Caius and got an interview invitation today
    Do you know if it's normal that the submissions for the interview confirmation form are still closed on their website ?

    Well done!
    I think we have to wait until they send out the more detailed admissions email with the dates and times, mine today was just confirming that I have an interview there. I've also heard that Caius is notoriously badly organised so I'm not sure how great the communication with them will be

    Hi I'm Helen!
    Uni choices : Manchester , Nottingham, Southampton and Sussex

    GCSEs : 3A* 5A and a B

    A - LEVELS: English, Drama and Politics

    Predicted grades/ AS grades : A*AA

    College: St Catherine's : I haven't been to the open day but it got a really good write up on tsr, it's apparently the cheapest college to live at and in a good location.

    Why Cam? I think it's prettier than Oxford also I've heard it has a more fun reputation and it's supposed to be good for theatre.

    What did I think of ELAT ? Had a blast writing it idk if the examiner will think it's garbled nonsense or not. Wrote about the two weird modern poems at the end. One was by Phillip Larkin and about a shopping mall and the other was called something something '''hoochie mama". As always I managed to twist the poem into being about capitalism. Probably the examiner reading it will think
    'this girl seems like a pretentious beret wearing ****'. But tbh that's what I am ( minus the beret wearing ) so hey-ho their loss if they don't let me in idc (I do care ).
    You reminded me of myself with the ‘two werid modern poems at the end’
