Awaiting ICE/PAO approval for a Cambridge MSt

I have been waiting for several weeks after a very nice and thorough assessment experience. I am very keen to have the decision finalized and wonder how long I'll have to wait. I was told that a recommendation has been made some 6-7 weeks ago. I don't want to bother the team again so here I am bothering this board. I hope it's not a problem I'm just a tad anxious as this would present dramatic and sound opportunities to learn and grow.

I'm in the same boat, I've been waiting for non-standard approval and have been assured it's just a formality but was under the impression it would have taken a few weeks, not months. Don't feel I can celebrate until I get a formal offer so the waiting is almost unbearable.

I'm currently in the same boat, did it end up working out for you guys?
Yes, it worked out very well for me and I am currently studying for an MSt at Cambridge. It did take months to get 'official' approval through because I was a non-standard applicant. It was almost August I think until I received it! I had been told by my course leaders it would be on its way in July, but I felt very anxious until I had the official Admissions letter. Good luck with yours, I hope it all works out for you.

Amazing! Thank you for letting me know. I shall keep waiting patiently. What do you mean by your application was a non-standard application? What Mst did you apply for btw?

Everything worked out in the end! I really think if you made it to this stage you have nothing to worry about.
