I'm applying to St John's for French and ab-initio Russian (: I was drawn to it mainly by the sheer level of financial support, and it's a beautiful college. Even if it isn't well reputed by other Cambridge students, I'm attracted to it nevertheless
It's basically a joke amongst Oxford students that "they'd rather be anywhere else but St John's" since a lot of private school students go there, but despite that, people who go to St John's seem to enjoy it and the staff there seem supportive, so its reputation doesn't bother me all that much.
Has anyone heard anything re interviews yet?
my nsaa went so badly defos failed but I really just wanna know abt the interview too
No 😥 hopefully we’ll hear news soon. I didn’t do very well in my nsaa so I’m not expecting an interview I’m just looking for some peace of mind now ahah I hate not knowing
I've applied for natural science. Just seen a comment about a lot of private school people applying to St John's, just wondering how true this is haha - is anyone else from state school?
