More than 2,500 A-Level students from across the UK are celebrating today after meeting their offer to become an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge.
The successful students were among 18,547 high-achievers to apply to the University in October 2017 and received their offers in January 2018. Since then, they have been working hard to secure the A-Level grades in their offer and have had an agonising wait to open their results.
Graham Virgo, Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, said: “Many, many congratulations to all of you who applied to Cambridge and have made your offer. We all look forward to seeing you at the end of September at Cambridge when you begin your studies here. We hope you have an exciting and fulfilling time at the University of Cambridge.”
Cheadle Hulme High School was celebrating this morning after Harriet and Megan achieved their grades. Megan has a place to study Modern and Medieval Languages at Girton College while Harriet has a place at Trinity College to study Classics.
