Official MPhil Economics/Economic Research etc Cambridge 2024 Thread

Hi All,
Seems like not many of us have heard back yet despite submitting applications over 12 weeks ago.

All updates/discussions welcome including all other variants (Economics + Finance, PhD, Advance Diploma etc)

My application is still under review as well. I've seen some getting the PAO status so I'm wondering if I should be worried. Also isthere a confirmation that we would hear on Feb 1st?

I think a couple people who applied in November have been given a Feb 1st Deadline to hear back by!

Mine also still under review :frown:

Any idea what classifies as ‘exceptional’?

& my comms with them suggested before 1st Feb (i.e today) but have they said mid-Feb to you?

Was it the department that said this to you?

I assume the other person is saying mid-Feb based on last year.

Last year there was a round of PAO’s on the 9th and then again at the end of Feb.

I can’t wait that long honestly… one or two people who have been PAO’d applied very early (September)

Yes- PG admissions for the econ dept around 12th Jan in an email
Someone who has already moved to PAO had a call with the admissions team. The person inferred from the admissions team we should hear back from now until early next week

Yea thats exactly what I meant, spoke with a few alums and read multiple posts on this forum. I am sorry if my wording made it confusing, you guys are totally fine. Wish everyone a very good luck with their applications!
