Hi i’m Amber!
I’m currently on a gap year and decided to reapply this year as I didn’t give Cambridge a go last year!
1.My A level subjects were English Literature, History, RE and EPQ, and I got A*A*A*A in that order.
2. My personal statement focused on Gilbert and Gubar’s theory of social castration and discussed its prevalence in texts such as Wuthering Heights, The Bell Jar, Chaucer’s The Clerks Tale, The Color Purple and Othello, as well as analysis of political and philosophical thiught within George Orwell’s 1984, and Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of being.
My extra curriculars include being my schools history captain, volunteering as a TA in a Year 11 English Class, winning my schools prize for English Literature two years in a row, being a “peer mentor” and being on my schools eco committee!
4. Since it’s over now i’ll ignore this question!
5. I did an open application and was allocated to Girton!
6.I chose Cambridge simply because I prefer the English course to the one at Oxford
I’ve also applied to Durham, Warwick, St. andrews and Liverpool. I’d love to make friends with anyone who’s applied to similar unis to me or anyone who’s also on a gap year!
