I hope everything turns out okay! It's cool seeing another Jesus applicant around, haven't seen many despite it being one of the popular colleges haha.

Also what you've done is super impressive and neuroscience sounds awesome (I'm more of a physicist myself) - hopefully we both get interviews!

Good luck :gthumb:

I only know one other person applying to Jesus but he's doing it for Medicine - I only chose Jesus after putting it up to people on my snapchat to decide for me since I couldn't choose between Jesus and Clare - naturally the majority was Jesus lmao

Also thank you! I would say Neuroscience is one of the superior scientific fields but I very much think astrophysics to be similar in the sense of knowing little of space and of our own minds! I also emailed Jesus letting them know of my illness and they said they would take it into account so hopefully that makes up for how I'm definitely gonna bomb tomorrow but good luck to you too! I'm reassured by the fact that most people do get interviews anyways - I think it's like 80% but I'm not a serious applicant. I only applied after being encouraged at the Sutton Trust summer school I attended at Cambridge and even then I'm pining for UCL (which is a crime I know 😂)

yeah I was stressed for time too - had to speed up a lot and I wasn't feeling well so I have to fill out a special considerations form as well but hopefully it wasn't too bad - paper 2 wasn't bad I guess but I'm not sure I did well there either. again im not really looking to be a serious candidate - I am trying though lmao but I'm not going to be devastated if I don't get a place (at this point I feel like I'd be relieved tbh)

but hopefully you did well enough!
