The Definitive 2011 Cambridge Thread


I havent received my CAS either..
But I guess thats because my offer is still conditional, since the Faculty hasnt analyzed my academic transcripts yet.. This is very strange, since my CAMSIS states that the documents are being analyzed for over 2 months! Therefore, I still havent met my non-standard academic condition.. Is anyone else in this situation?

Dear everyone,

to those of you who have sent evidence of achieved (or almost achieved) academic conditions: how many copies did you send? Only one for the BoGS or also extra copies for your college?
thnx!

I got a conditional offer at April, and was accepted at Queen's College. But I got only overall 7.5 scores with 6.5 in speaking(April) or writing(May) in IELTS (I took the test twice after getting an offer). I sent an e-mail asking a waiver for language requirement, but have not heard anything. Should I take a test again? It's really stressful and expensive.. Also I am very busy because I have to complete work before leaving my country.
Anyway I sent an email 10 June, but there's no answer.

If I was you I would try the IELTS test one more time as I doubt (but have no personal knowledge) that they can waive the language requirement, especially if you come from a non-majority English speaking country. As I understand the new rules from the UK Border Agency, the University has to confirm that you meet a certain level of language skills prior to issuing your CAS that is required to obtain your visa.

I have the same problem with the TOEFL iBT, and I dont have the opportunity to retake it because the next test day is in late August. I also sent e-mails to Ms Wade without any answer.

But yesterday they put the following message on my camsis:

Thank you for sending evidence that you have recently taken an English Language Test. Unfortunately your test result does not meet the Universitys minimum requirement; please refer to Entry Requirements on our website at: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/gradstud/prospec/apply/entryreq/

If your result has narrowly missed the University's minimum requirement, or if you feel that it does not reflect your ability, please contact our University Language Centre as soon as possible. Following consultation with your Department (and College, where known), the Language Centre may be able to carry out an assessment of your language skills. If you are not sure whether you may be eligible for assessment, please contact the Language Centre directly to discuss your case.

Hi guys - for those who DEFERRED their admission - I was wondering if that had any bearing on your eventual college admission i.e. were you admitted into the same college as a year ago?

THanks a lot in advance!

I emailed her a couple of times in the past two weeks (the most recent being two days ago), she always replied and was really nice about it. Maybe you could try making your email a 'high-priority' one if it's really something that urgent?

Hey guys, I (finally!) got my CAS yesterday afternoon, UK time - if you haven't already gotten it, it should come in soon!

I havent received my CAS either..
But I guess thats because my offer is still conditional, since the Faculty hasnt analyzed my academic transcripts yet.. This is very strange, since my CAMSIS states that the documents are being analyzed for over 2 months! Therefore, I still havent met my non-standard academic condition.. Is anyone else in this situation?

I don't know for academic condition but for my other conditions it took them something like 3 weeks in May.
