Hi all!
I thought I would make a forum specifically for Fitz applicants this year, as i haven't seen one...
I guess we can start with some introductions...

GCSE/A level Predictions?
What course did you choose?
Why did you choose to apply to Cambridge?
Why Fitz?

I'm applying for HSPS! Hoping to go the Anthropology/Sociology route... I'm currently doing Biology (A*) Sociology (A) Economics (A) and History (A) - all predictions and i got 6A*s and 2As at GCSE... I chose cambridge because i love the place and the ethos of learning and taking education seriously, and i chose Fitz because of all the colleges i visited i felt so at home there and it just felt like the right choice, not much more to it than that! Checking my emails frantically to see if im going to get an interview invite... eek!!

Hi!!!

I also applied for HSPS. The AHAA absolutely killed me, I got quite a severe anxiety attack during it because I was so nervous so I don't expect to get an interview.

Good luck to everyone!

No idea what AS or UMS is, I'm applying from outside the UK.

And thank you for wishing me luck. <3 Same to you.

GCSE/A level Predictions?
GCSE: 99987AAAA6B
A level predictions: Maths (A*) Further Maths (A*) French (A*) Politics (A)
What course did you choose? Maths
Why did you choose to apply to Cambridge? I like their teaching style and the course has a lot of choice and opportunity to choose different modules. Also more time to prepare for the STEP, rather than doing the MAT in october)
Why Fitz? Stayed there for my sutton trust summer school and thought it was lovely (and close to maths building)

Hey,
I’ve applied for Med with predictions A*,A*,A,A but the BMAT... :/

I really liked the atmosphere of Cambridge and Fitz was super friendly and more modern.

Honestly doubt I’ll get an interview offer at this point and even if I do I’m absolutely terrified it will go awfully.

Hiya! Applying for Physical NatSci here 😃 Predicted: 4 A*s in Physics, Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry, doing an EPQ as well

Why Cambridge: the amount of knowledge you could gain in the university by some of the world's best academics is amazing

Why Fitz: they have ovens. I didn't see much difference between the colleges... so I applied to one that seemed to have good kitchens. I visited the college after applying and completely fell in love with it, so I definitely made the right choice!

GCSE Grades - A*A^998777766
A Level Predicted - A*A*A*A (Maths, Further, Phys, Comp Sci)
Applying for Computer Science

I chose to apply to Cambridge because the course just seemed incredibly interesting. I don't think I'm good enough to get in, and the CTMUA was an absolute nightmare of an exam, but I really hope I do. Plus, Cambridge is a lovely place, so there's not really any complaints.

Fitz was just me. I can't explain why I liked it there so much. Was stuck between there and Churchill, but in the end Fitz just felt a lot more welcoming. Plus there's a lot of plug sockets and I'll end up using all of them

Hey so I've got an update no one asked for

I was right. I didn't get an interview. *clown emoji*. It probably went to a private school educated person, and oddly enough I am fine with that. lol im still salty af.

To everyone who got an interview and will get into Cambridge, best of luck. Go change the world and make it a better place.
