Hi all - this is the official thread for those applying to Gonville & Caius College Cambridge for 2022 entry.

Feel free to introduce yourselves below; what courses are you applying for, what A levels you take, what predicted grades / achieved grades you have, if you're to take an admissions test, and the preparation for said admissions test, why Caius and why Cambridge?

Good luck everyone!

May as well start:

I'm applying for (Physical) Natural Sciences, having to take the NSAA on 3 November, I take Further Maths, Maths, Physics and Chemistry A Levels, predicted 4A*, and I decided that NatSci seemed the perfect course for me as I adore science in general and am entirely open minded as to where I end up. My choice of Caius was quite arbitrary though, I just like the accom!

I'm applying to Caius as well for Maths.
I'm predicted 4A*s in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science and an A* in my EPQ.
It was initially between Maths and CS when deciding what to study and Maths was just more interesting so why not.
I don't have a Pre-interview admissions test but If I get an offer it would be conditional on grades in STEP.
Applied to Cambridge cos it's the best for Maths lol and I quite enjoy the STEP questions actually.
I chose Caius because I thought Stephen Hawking went here. Turns out he was a fellow and actually went to Trinity Hall but it is what it is lol.

Hi! I’m applying to Caius for Law.
I’m predicted 3 A*s in English Lit., Religious Studies and History as well as A* in my EPQ on the justifiability of the UK supreme court.
Obviously for Law there’s the CLT, as well as the LNAT for other unis I’m applying to (Bristol and Durham).
I chose Caius because it’s location is so good, especially for the humanities faculty. Also I’m a disadvantaged applicant and the funding grants for Caius are pretty good!

I think it's something like they give u a chapter to read or smth and then ask you questions on it. Sounds better tbh as I'd like to think I can absorb information quickly ahaha. What are ur A level predictions btw?

Oh I'm applying for Maths and CS at imperial rather than straight maths, but the rest are for just maths, so I don't have to do the MAT. I presume you're sitting it?
