    Could you just give me an idea how much work you have to do each week (i.e. hours many hours of lectures/supervisions etc).
    Oh I think I might be able to help out here...try this link...I asked Sam the same question a few weeks ago!!

    But seriously, don't worry about the entire process just yet. Take each step as it comes. I only decided I wanted to apply to Cambridge in early September, and to be honest (sorry Sam!) my choice of college was a random decison - I went to thr Trinity website, found out one of my all time favourite poets studied there (how bizarre I'm going there for a completely unrelated subject) - and said "YES!!!!!! This is the place for me!!"
    Aim for high GCSEs and high UMS marks at AS.

    It varies from year to year, and also varies depending on which stage of the tripos you are at. The first year DoS this year is Dr Rupert Gatti.

    There is no Trinity economics society, but there is the University Marshall Society which is pretty good. They get high profile speakers and also organise a lot of social events. It's worth becoming a member.

    With regards to socialising etc...see my answer to a previous post on this thread.

    Instead of the combination I have already said, I am considering doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics...do you reckon that I would be at all disadvantaged for not studying English or History?

    I think its an extremely challenging combination and is very impressive even if it doen't include English and History! It is also probably a very wise choice as the Cam course involves so much maths - and you still have an "essay" subject in economics.

    So I would not be disadvantaged if I didn't do history, even though they 'supposedly' like history

    Hey din't see your latest post!!
    Erm...no, I don't think so...I don't really know what to say...I did History...my UMS mark was 294...but I think that Physics would be equally impressive. Do the subject that you like the best. Trinity wants to see your enthusiasm for your subjects...not for what you think that they want you to do!! If you are more interested in the "science" side of the social science...go with the physics...if you are more interested in the "arts" side, then go with the history. Best of luck in any case and please feel free to post if you have any other questions.

    I have chosen to do History because it is probably my favourite subject. I was only considering physics because it accompanies Maths and Further Maths quite well.

    Would you be willing to have a glance at my PS when I do it to see if it matches up to Trinity's standards?

    Hey minimo, i got pooled fom trinity this year for econ and got into magdalene so i sort of qualify for your request. How did u find the interviews, i had gatti and satchell. Just out of interest where do you go to school as i was wondering if you were private or state. I go to a state grammar so its sort of in between but i was wondering if trin are helping state students as the DoS said this was what they were trying to do. Check out my profile to see how my experience of cam went. http://www.oa.waveflex.com/profiles/...sp.asp?id=1032

    Hey! I’m neither state nor independent – I’m international hehe. The interviews I think in hindsight were okay. I really liked my first interview - I thought it went quite well. The second one with Dr Low was well…erm …well (you get the picture!!) But I suppose I must have said something right. Well done on the offer btw!

    Just out of interest, would chemistry be as 'respected' as Physics and Chemistry for Economics at Trinity?
