Thank you! In all honesty I haven't visited! I was booked on the open day, but didn't see much point in going after I'd applied haha. Why were you disappointed?
Ah, fair enough . It just didn't seem as good as I'd made it out to be in my head for some reason. The course looks really good though, it was more the actual university. When we went to see the accommodation, no one had even bothered to clear up the kitchen - there was food everywhere and dirty dishes. Just expected them to at least tidy up.
Went to the open day on the 22nd, but applied on the 20th, loved it and really want to get an offer!! Hence the impatience I got an email two days ago saying they had my application and it was under consideration, so I guess its just a waiting game from here!!
GCSE: A*A*A*AAAABBC AS: AAABB (Law, English Language, History, Spanish, Critical Thinking) A2 predictions: A*AA (Law, English Language, History) Course: Law Why: I know the place of Reading quite well (as I was born there) and the Law Department seemed really good at Reading so it's perfect for an insurance Choices: York, Manchester, Oxford, Leeds, Reading
I'm another Law applicant hoping to put Reading down as my insurance. I went the Open Day on the 8th and thought whilst the uni wasn't quite as good as others I've looked at, the Law Department seemed to be on the ball and the talk was very useful. I've received confirmation from them of my application, but nothing else as of yet.
Went to the open day a couple weeks back and was absolutely amazed, I had reading in mind as a " just incase everything goes horribly wrong choice " boy was I wrong, they've got a brand spanking new building with labs and general Pharmacy & Pharmacology facilities worth about £20million !
Totally overwhelmed by everything on campus it's a definite insurance i'll be happy to go to if I don't make my first choice, I only 15minutes away so I would drive, they've got amazing sports & library facilities. Perfect really
AND I got an interview on the 9th november
Best of luck to everyone, feel free to ask me anything, I'm pretty local so I'll do my best at giving info about Reading in general

I'm applying for biochemistry too.
Hopefully my college will send off my application tomorrow.
Really want an unconditional from them. have BBC at A-levels. and D in maths (( wish i had a C then i would have the 320 points....
But hopefully they will see that I did 3 science subjects at a-level and also did EPQ :-D
I'm applying for the 4 year Art course, just send my UCAS form off and Reading's my top choice.
AS: AAAC (art, photography, geog, bio) and predicted AAAB for A2. I'm just super scared as its mainly on portfolio 0_0
I'm applying for Biomed. They say in the prospectus you need a B in biology and one other science, I already have a B in biology but a C in chemistry which I'm resitting. Really, really hoping they make me an offer though
