Star seeking

I am researching the impact of the A* A-level on university admission. I would be interested in hearing about any student who has been required to get one or more A* grades for 2010 admission, to discuss how this has affected them. I am particularly interested in hearing about anyone applying to Cambridge who has been asked for more than the standard A*AA offer, or if anyone knows of a student who has been asked for A*A*A*.
