Haven't seen a thread for this yet so thought I'd make one. What's everyone applied for?

I've applied to history! Can I just ask, did anyone get confirmation of receiving written work? Cause I didn't lol and I'm seeing people say they did?

There’s a spreadsheet on the official Cambridge 2023 applicants where people are entering interview or deselected by course and college, the link is on the very first page of the thread

life saver thank u
Has anyone applied for Land Economy at Downing?
No I haven't! And I'm weirded out by that bc AFAIK interviews/rejections for a subject go out on the same day, and I haven't heard anything back, nor has someone else I know that applied to Downing history. It could be just someone with a bad application though, because they were deselected.

Oh that's alright then! I saw Newnham said they don't send confirmation because the written work is checked and added to an applicant's file manually so they don't automate it and the admissions team don't have time to confirm so I'm assuming it's something similar with us!

Good kitchen facilities! And I wanted a college that was not as well known as Trinity & Kings etc. but still old and had that Cambridge feel.

Hi is anyone else's emails from downing ending up in spam? Some of the pretty important emails seem to end up in my spam junk email section it's a bit annoying
any other downing law applicants here? one person on the spreadsheet has supposedly got an offer, but i reckon it's fake because i don't think they'd give one and then wait 2 days before giving any others and there's no name with it :/ either way it sucks waiting, they gave loads of interviews today last year so i hope we hear back soon!!

Not a Law applicant but I would say take the spreadsheets with a pinch of salt. I feel like it's impossible to tell which entries are real and fake. However, that being said downing has begun giving out interviews for some subjects - got one for HSPS. Wishing ya the best, let me know when you hear back!
