Hi, hope everyone's doing well, especially after decisions day! :0 Yesterday I was rejected for English at Fitzwilliam after being pooled, but at the bottom of my letter it says I'm eligible for something called the summer pool? Not sure how this works seeing as I already got rejected, does this mean there's still potential to get a place once A-Level results are out? Has anyone gotten in through the summer pool before?

There is a complete explanation of the summer pool from Peterhouse Admission on the main Applicants thread you were posting on yesterday. It was posted in the evening - have a look.

Applicants can be selected from the summer pool by any college once external examinations have taken place.

I can quite understand that - it was quite a day, yesterday. If you can't find it, come back to me and I'll see if I can.

Thank you! Sorry, just a quick question - are people who miss their offers also included in the same pool, or is it a separate pool for widening participation?

The Summer Pool and August Reconsideration Pool run concurrently, but I believe the files are kept separate. Even if they're combined, files will be clearly marked to show who is in which group.
