    Reaction: After 4 rejections, i've literally become so numb. Had a dodgy day, then found a UCAS email and thought 'even better'. Was utterly stunned when i saw 1 'conditional' amidst 4 'unsuccessfuls'. Checked track like 23516459 times to make sure it was real! Love Warwick- was my favourite!

    Probably because you're asking in the wrong thread. This one is supposed to be for decisions only.
    It'd be best if you just asked the university - ring them up or write them an email. Sounds a bit weird that they withdraw it on your behalf!

    Course: BA English with Journalism
    Decision [Offer/Rejection]: Conditional

    Reaction: Wow! Another offer! (I was still nervous for my Napier interview though)

    Application sent: 30/10/11
    Uni: Napier
    Course: BA Journalism
    Decision [Offer/Rejection]: Conditional
    Offer Grades: BBBB (Highers including English)
    Date Offer Received: 20/03/12 (Though I was told at the interview on the 8th)
    Reaction: At the interview I just looked at the interviewer in astonishment. I then burst out laughing at the train station on the way home. When I got home I began to worry that maybe she meant "if" I got an offer and not that I definitely got one, so when it came through on UCAS it was mostly joy-filled relief.

    I firmed Napier because their course is accredited and has contracts with the BBC and STV. There wasn't much point in taking an insurance since the other ones had the same/higher entry requirements.

    I left school at 14, have no science GCSEs and failed Maths but am retaking and on track for A*.. so to have got to this point is amazing, and it feels so much better because I have worked so hard to get here. I now feel like I can take over the world and this is by far the best day of my life and the greatest news ever. I am ecstatic and unbelievably grateful! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Congrats, what is your diploma in and did you have any A-levels/work exp with it?
