I received a rejection for homerton law today after unsuccessful pooling.
However, at the end of the email , they stated that I met 'adjustment' criteria due to some contextual flags they found within my application.

Can someone explain what adjustment is and consequently what chance I may have to get into Cambridge through the 'summer pool'

That is what was formerly known as adjustment.

It is essentially just adjustment. Adjustment is a means by which the university fills up places (if it has them) if people have missed their offers on results day.
I would say that in general the chances of receiving an offer through adjustment are pretty low (in other words I’d avoid banking on it) but it’s worth a try imo.

The way to look at this is more like having a raffle ticket.Do not plan around winning a raffle but if you have a ticket you are in the mix.Medicine seems most likely to come up.The last few tears have been a car crash for Adjustment stats and scheme was new just before the pandemic so this year may be more fruitful but do not bank on it at all.

do you have to have been pooled to have a realistic chance at adjustment

No - we admit people who were not pooled.

I'm applicable for adjustment as well - rejected from Homerton comp sci. I looked at the data for the last few years for comp sci and it looks like a 20% chance of getting in which is pretty good

did they really use the term "adjustment"? i thought adjustment is no longer offered, Cambridge now uses the term August Reconsideration Pool, right ?

They have just renamed system to avoid confusion with ordinary Adjustment which other unis use.

UCAS has stopped Adjustment from this year because, with the exception of Cambridge, it was barely used in recent years. There were a tiny number of applicants getting places through it, so it wasn't worth running.

We only used the term 'Adjustment' to explain that the August Reconsideration Pool is what used to be called Adjustment. Some posters (and probably me, on occasion) have used the word 'Adjustment' because it's shorter and a more familiar term for the same process.

Hi so I’m eligible for adjustment but wasn’t pooled

I also have pretty average GCSEs and just got my interview feedback which was 5,4 with some quite brutal comments (I’m quite shy and let my nerves get to me)

Is it worth applying for adjustment in august with these stats?

They are stopping it completely though Clearing of course is still an option (can just feel a bit more risky to applicants)
