Form now closed for 2022 entry

Please note, the register your expression of interest form is now closed for the 2022 August Reconsideration Pool.

 

Were you notified about the August Reconsideration Pool in the decision letter or email we sent you in January 2022? If so, then you may be eligible to put yourself forward for reconsideration for a place at Cambridge.

How to apply for the August Reconsideration Pool

Once you have your results, please check carefully that:

  • The Cambridge course you applied for has places available (see table below).
  • You have achieved at least the typical offer for the Cambridge course you applied for (shown in table).

If you can answer "yes" to both of the above and you wish to be reconsidered for a place at Cambridge, then you need to register your expression of interest via the online form available between 8:30 and 13:00 (UK time) on 18 August 2022. Please ensure you have your UCAS Personal ID number to hand as it will be required for identity verification.

Once we've received and checked your expression of interest, we'll contact you to confirm your details and explain the next steps in the process.

Please note that although you're able to nominate someone to discuss your UCAS application on your behalf, we will not liaise with this person on matters relating to the August Reconsideration Pool. All communication regarding this process must take place with you directly.

What happens next?

All eligible applications received will be considered by the Cambridge Colleges on a gathered field basis. We expect to notify applicants of the outcome of their application on Friday evening (19 August).

There will be no further interviews as part of the August Reconsideration Pool. Those offered a place will have until 12 noon (UK time) on Monday, 22 August 2022 to respond, confirming if they wish to accept the offer.

If you do choose to accept the offer, further details about how we will confirm your acceptance with UCAS will be sent to you by the College offering you a place.

If you choose not to accept the offer, or you don’t accept your offer by the deadline, then no further action will be taken. You will be free to pursue other options or continue with your firm choice institution.
