How do you know that those colleges have rejected your application? My self service page just says "seeking college membership"


Did you apply to a specific college? If so, then it'll say 'seeking college membership' up until the point where they've decided. If you made an open application similarly it'd just say 'seeking college membership' until one college accepts you. I think that's how it works at least.

For those interested, I've just received an email back which said that for offers that require you to gain a 1.0 in your final year, this refers solely to your grades from your final year of study. So in practical terms, as I received strong second year results I could receive an average of around 64 from my third year results and still receive a First class score overall but would not meet the terms of my offer. To my mind this makes absolutely no sense. My university gives me an overall degree classification that is an average of my second and third year results but other factors are considered when deciding the threshold score for a First Class classification. How, then, will Cambridge determine whether my third year results are first class results? Will they apply my university's view on what degree classification those results would be (even though my university would not specifically state what classification my 3rd year results are, they'd just give me an overall classification averaging my second and third years) or would they apply their own standard as to what a first class percentage score would be across my final year modules, which doesn't entirely seem fair. This really seems quite confusing to me so was wondering what any of you guys thought?

I'm in the same position and if on my offer they're also referring to my final year's score then ir makes absolutely no sense.

The thing is the email came from the general graduate admissions office as opposed to the law specific one so I'm hoping that they might have made a mistake. In any case I've emailed Ms Wade to get some clarity on the matter so will let you know when I receive a response!

Did anyone else hear back from Cambridge re college memberships recently? I've been under consideration by college for weeks!


Last week I've been admitted to eddies.


Girton here, heard from them a week ago.


I've been admitted to St Edmunds according to Camsis but haven't heard anything from them directly, have your colleges contact you directly yet?

Girton asked me to send them some documents re financing at some point in the future and apply for housing asap. Other than that, nothing.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one, though with the length of time the admissions process took, I won't be surprised if it takes a while for a few of the colleges to make contact.

My status just changed a few minutes back to Conditional offer made - seeking college membership, though I haven't received any email yet. The wait is never going to be over!

That's good to hear though! I had gotten my email a day later.

I just wish the process ends soon so that I can relax a bit and actually focus on my thesis! Hopefully we'll all hear back from colleges soon

Did you (or anyone else who has heard back) apply directly for that college or did you make an open application? (Also apologies I think I may have accidentally reported your comment when trying to quote it!)

Omg! I just checked and my application to downing was unsuccessful either. I wonder on what basis do they decide on college membership. :(

No news from the Trust. =/ I think we should just expect everything delayed by 2 months. -_-
BTW is there anyone at all who has received any news from the Trust Scholarships?
