This page will help you through the process - do keep an eye on it!

Thank you for submitting a UCAS form and applying to King’s. Below you will find the information you need for the next stages in the application process. This page is now your main source of information until January. Please read the page and links extremely carefully, bookmark it, and refer back to it regularly. It is essentially the Admissions Office notice board, and you will miss important and useful information if you do not read it.

January: Decisions for all applicants

We will post decision letters to all applicants who had interviews in Cambridge, overseas interview candidates, and affiliated applicants on Friday 9 January (this is a university-wide posting date). We will then email the text of decision letters to all applicants on Monday 12 January (you do not need to request this). Please note that this will take us some time - you will not necessarily hear from us in the morning.

The Cambridge Admissions website has information about the possible outcomes.
