    Congratulations

    Sensible spread of choices, unlike many Oxbridge applicants I've seen
    Thanks.

    I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so I wanted some lower offers in case I ended up missing a lot of lessons like I did last year.

    Wow. That's a real coincidence!

    Are you in university? If so, how do you find it?

    Last year of school actually doing A2's atm, then I'm heading up to Uni to study Ancient History

    Depends on the day to be honest, affects me worst between around 3 - 6, but its gotten a lot better since I started drinking lots of water, working out and eating healthily

    How about yours?

    Me too ... got it this afternoon. My first choice is King's .. but considering it was my first response from a university, it's definitely put a downer on things lol

    Bristol is fantastic (better than Durham IMHO) Well done. Don't know much about Manchester so off the top of my head I'd say Birmingham. It won't matter though 'cos you'll be off to Bristol anyway!

    That's a pity but I understand exactly what you mean! Newcastle and Manchester are very good universities for the study of the Ancient world, so congrats on getting in there!

    Manchester's pretty good, it's raining here at the moment mind so I'm not in the mood to say the wonderful things about it when I'm freezing my arse off at work. I chose not to choose Birmingham because when in applied, the average offer was BBB and when I got my offer, it came with a letter stating that they'd upped the average offer to ABB . Not only did this piss me off, I was never all that keen on Birmingham anyway.

    Just out of interest, who is your 5th choice? :ninja:

    Applied to and had offers from King's College, Manchester and Birmingham for Ancient History - as well as Leeds(History and Roman Civilization) and Newcastle(History).

    My first choice is King's and haven't decided on my insurance but is anyone else planning on going there or to any of the others I mentioned?

    Umm I got it on the 7th it was really out of the blue since I expected them to reject me since i'm only predicted ABB and I have no A's at GCSE so i'm sure that if someone with as terrible a profile to apply to King's as mine can get an offer, i'm sure you will.

    The offer was AAA rather than the AAAb they advertised aswell 0_o I hope you get an offer and I bet the only reason you haven't yet is because they're sifting through all the applications. So goodluck

    I've had rejections from Durham and Kent ... so I'm not holding out any hope to be honest.

    It was 6 years ago I did my A Levels and I ended up with god awful results. I'm hoping my life experience and the SAT's I took at the end of last year are going to pull me through this one.
