Hi everyone! Who else is thinking of applying for St John's and for what course? And is there anyone from St John's who can share their experiences? Thanks!

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

Hi! Yes it does look really beautiful! I'm intrigued to know what you've heard about it from other students?

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.

I agree me neither. Good luck with your application!

Honestly same. I don't know what happened to me in the exam but I couldn't focus at all - had to guess so many questions. Hopefully they will give us a chance

Hey, I'm from a state school too! I think John's is known for having a very private school heavy cohort each year, although I think this is down to limited state school students applying.
