    Calm down. Write a contrite and apologetic letter saying you are sorry to have inconvenienced them. I'm sure they get it all the time. They make mistakes too!

    That's nothing, when I got a letter from Cambridge telling me I had an offer, they asked me to reply by post as to whether I wanted the place. So, having written out the letter saying yes please, and braved the weather going to post it straight away, you can imagine my dismay when it transpired I had in fact posted the letter Cambridge sent to me back to them.

    They sent it back again with a slightly patronizing note. I sure had egg on my face.

    Oh I don't mind if he didn't like my eyes, everyone is entitled to an opinion and I know that my appearance is kind of odd. You either like it, or really don't.
    I was just annoyed because I am kind of stressed right now and posts about my eyes aren't really helping the situation!

    You haven't had to sign for data protection? They might not get you to do it until you're up for interview or something. I think its standard though. But certainly don't worry about something your college hasn't notified you about.

    This was last year. I was made an offer for maths at Queens', but I didn't make the STEP grades.

    Seeing how I feel in a few years, though, it wouldn't surprise me at all if I applied again for a PhD. Hopefully they'll have forgotten all about it by then.

    I seriously doubt it. As I said in another post, I didn't even send it when I applied last year. Anyway, you've let them know now and they've recived your application; they are not just going to cast it aside because of this.

    If you looked at the threads in the main Cambridge forum, you would see that half an hour ago someone else started a thread saying they made exactly the same mistake and asking what to do and whether they had messed up.

    Yes it is. The Oxbridge application year has very predictable questions being asked repeatedly each year. This is the largest student forum in the world, and the Oxbridge section is one of the most widely famous and attractive services the site offers.
    As it is, in your case you only had to look in the thread two spaces away from yours.

    But nevermind. I've made a big thread for panicking in, with an obvious title, and the mods might merge all similar threads into it from now, to save people posting the same answers in ten threads at a time

    (that same answer is: relax its fine, people make this mistake all the time, and the people who deal with admin at your college aren't the people who make offers, the latter will likely never know that you accidentally posted your GQ/Hello subscription renewal form by accident instead of your GCE certificate, etc - just post the data protection form back and write a note of apology)
