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

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 (details available 18 August 2022)
  • You have achieved at least the typical offer for the Cambridge course you applied for (check Course profile)

If you can answer yes to the above and wish to be reconsidered for a place at Cambridge, then you need to register your expression of interest by completing an online form, available between 08:30 and 13:00 (UK time) on Thursday, 18 August 2022. Once we have received and checked your expression of interest, we will contact you to confirm your details and explain the next steps in the process.

We're aware that you can nominate an individual to act on your behalf when dealing with matters relating to your UCAS application. However, please note that we will not liaise with this person on matters relating to the August Reconsideration Pool and all communications regarding this process must take place with you directly.

Please ensure you have your UCAS Personal ID number to hand as it will be required for identity verification.

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.

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 regarding how we will confirm your acceptance with UCAS will be sent to you by the College which has offered you a place.

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