I don't know if this is official actually, I just said it was for some reason.

I take the IB, 776 Higher Level and predicted 44/45. Higher level subjects are Film, Econs, Physics.
I have to take the TSA, prepping for just about a week? I only spent two hours looking at various colleges before picking Christ's. Close to LandEc department, and near some great food!

Feeling alright. I'm currently scoring at about 26/50 which seems to be around the 50th percentile. I think that's fine for Land Economy as I've heard the TSA is mainly for deciding whether you will get called to interview. On the other hand, I've heard for PPE at Oxford, the TSA is evaluative and plays a part in whether you will get an offer.
I have applied to Gonville and Caius with A*A*A* (Maths, Econ, Mandarin). TSA this week

How much do you guys think Personal Statement matters for Land Economy? Do you guys think it could be a factor in admission if you've done some interesting work experience? Or is it mainly just to verify you have some degree of interest in LandEc?

Seeing as LandEc is such a unique degree, I think the PS is hard to write specifically for it. But Cambridge knows this - which is why they provide the SAQ statement! I think your main PS and the SAQ together are probably quite significant factors to whether you receive an interview or not... (as everyone applying has exceptional grades, so the TSA along with written work and PS+SAQ helps them decide!!)
