    University: Glasgow
    Course name: Psychology/History of Arts
    Offer: 36 points in IB Diploma
    Reaction: I'm disappointed with the entry requirement being 36 points, no chance for me

    University: Aberdeen
    Course name: Psychology
    Offer: 30 points in IB Diploma, 15 points at higher level
    Reaction: This was expected, going to be my insurance

    Well, I was hoping that the entry requirement for Psychology/History of Arts would be 34 points as mentioned in the websites of UCAS, but unfortunately not. Glasgow is my dream university, so I'm probably going to firm their offer of Sociology/Arts, media & Informatics of 34 IB points.

    University: Bath
    Course name: BSc Psychology (sandwich)
    Offer: IELTS overall 7.0 no less than 6.5 in all components
    Reaction: My first choice. I'm super excited now and really looking forward to start in October!



    University: Sussex
    Course name: BSc Psychology
    Offer: GCSE Maths grade B; UCL DEAP with overall 65% no less than 60% in
    each component
    Reaction: I was hesitating between Bath and Sussex because I'd really love to live in Brighton. However since Bath has better reputation, offers placement year and doesn't require Maths, I'm going to firm Bath.

    University: Goldsmith
    Course name: BSc Psychology
    Offer: IELTS 6.5
    Reaction: The impression I had from the uni after Open day was really good. This was my first offer ( they replied super fast about a week after I applied) I think Goldsmith is decent school with good atmosphere and friendly staff. And at really eased me to know I hold an offer

    University: Brunel
    Course name: BSc Psychology (sandwich)
    Offer: Unconditional
    Reaction: Well, not excited at all

    I'm an international student from Czech Republic with Maturita grades AAAA (Czech, English, Social Sciences, Block of subjects in English language) and one semester of studying psychology, Media studies and Social Anthropology at Masaryk University, Brno. I'm currently at Diploma in English for Academic Purposes course at UCL.

    University: Bath
    Course Name: BSc Pcyhology (Sandwich)
    Offer: A*AA
    Predicted Grades: A*AB

    As happy as I am, I was sort of hoping they'd reject me - just to make my decision even clearer. I've got all five of my offers now - Bath, Bristol, Portsmouth, Warwick and York - though I'm not even considering Portsmouth or Warwick.

    My problem now is deciding between Bath and Bristol for my firm choice, with York as my insurance. Bath is A*AA, Bristol is AAA and York is AAB - in the past, have people found Bath and/or Bristol to accept grades below what they're asking for - I'm struggling to see how I'll get A*AA and even AAA will be a push.

    I really cannot decide between Bath and Bristol!

    Is anyone else in the same dilemma?

    I really like the sound of the placement year at Bath, and I'd love to carry on doing German too, but I've heard that unless you want to do psychology professionally then a placement isn't really relevant...

    I'm also worried that Bath won't be a very happening place, and as shallow as it might sound I don't think I could spend 3 years in a dead town, whereas a Bristol definitely looks like a lot more a student town.

    Could anyone shed any light on any of this?? Seriously, seriously, stuck :-(

    Hello!!!!

    Have only just seen this as I haven't been on here for aaages - congratulations!!!!

    Guess what? I recieved the same offer on the same day! I'm so happy & excited, can't wait to start! I take it you chose UEA as your firm?

    Who did you have for your interview? I had Charles (pretty sure that was his name, was a little while ago now lol). Do you know anybody else who received an offer? The other girl from my evening course didn't receive one, but somebody from the day course did.

    Sorry to sound manic, I'm just so pleased!
