1) What A Levels are you taking from September (or other eligible qualifications)?
> Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Economics + may do a Cambridge Pre-U (Italian)2) What course at Cambridge do you have your eyes on? And why?
> I'm pretty final on veterinary medicine, just because that's the best course for me. I started off thinking that I could've directly jumped into an equine related degree from the beginning, but I think this course in particular will benefit the most, as I can still specialise in equine vet med later on.3) What grades did you get at GCSE? Are you retaking any?
> 9999999988D*A*, no I am not, although I'm pretty disappointed with the 8 in chemistry 4) Why Cambridge specifically? and why not Oxford?
> Oxford doesn't offer vet med, but also, since the beginning of secondary school I've always found Cambridge so interesting.5) Which admissions tests do you have to sit, and when will you start preparing for them?
> ‘Natural Sciences Admissions Assessment’ , to be honest I don't know much about it, although I have seen past papers so I'll probably begin this year.6) What have you done in lockdown to help your studies and potentially your application to Cambridge?
> Small things to boost my CV, including both iDEA awards, Google Analytics courses (beginner and advanced, with official certificate), BHS qualifications and I've attended a Cambridge Webinar on Downing College and a week's worth of induction days for Cambridge too. I have also joined a mentoring programme 7) What do you want to do with your degree from Cambridge?
> I'm not sure what year you can choose to go the equine route, but I'll be doing that and hopefully at the end of the 6 years (if I decide to go Cambridge 100% and they accept me) I'll do an internship at an equine hospital or something similar and specialise in something like ophthalmology! 8) Have you decided which college you're applying to?
> I'm not sure, but Downing is appealing
