Awww thanks guys! The good side to this whole process is how many people are actually willing to help out a stranger, even just to encourage them! Initially I just wanted to withdraw my Cambridge admission but then i just decided to maintain the status quo for now. Thanks guys.
Let the long wait continue.

Is there any way you can possibly go without the scholarship? Looking into loans and other schemes of funding, perhaps?

Well where i come from, you can hardly get a loan fro education and even getting a loan of 32,000 pounds will take me ages to pay it back. I am looking at alternative sources of funding but its still tricky! If the worst comes to the worst, i will just defer!

I understand that.

But oh, well, money is relative, Depending on what you end up doing, 32,000 may not that huge a sum in the UK, especially in the longer run.

I'm not sure deferral is possible. See the FAQ: http://www.llm.law.cam.ac.uk/admissions/frequently-asked-questions.html
"The University of Cambridge does not grant formal deferrals. Formal offers are made only for the academic year for which the original application was made. In exceptional cases, however, such as personal bereavement or serious illness of the offer holder, the Faculty may be prepared to grant an informal deferral."

I know someone who got a deferral on the same grounds. That provision in the Q n A is merely directory. It depends on how convincing you sound.
But if you know of any alternative sources, kindly let me know.

Well, that's a good thing then. Hope you get the scholarship!

I'm looking for such sources myself, although loans seem to be somewhat more accessible in the EU (by contrast, scholarships often exclude EU citizens from applying).

But the funds are limited on the other hand Linas, so it really goes both ways - securing a loan is easier if you are from EU :)

In true Eppendorf style, you had to say something negative. But well we cannot expect the whole world to be nice. We wish you good luck in your exams though!

That's very kind of you, thanks.

I'll soon be done with them and I'm quite looking forward to the May Balls afterwards.
