    Guys -- remember that this thread is for offers only.

    Please take any chat/excitement/discussion/panic relating to other people's offers (or your own) to one of these threads:

    Applicant chat thread

    The Edinburgh FAQ/Q&A/Ask a Current Student thread

    The outside courses/extra subjects question & help thread

    Thank you!!!

    Well done to the people who have offers,
    Bad luck to the people who didn't get an offer - Edinburgh is only one choice of many and its ridiculously competitive. It doesn't mean that you have a bad application or are a poor applicant,
    And keep calm to the people who are still waiting for news!

    Rep:
    Happened a little while ago BUT thought I'd whack it down here-

    Course: French & English Literature

    Conditions: Unconditional

    International or Home/EU: From all the way down in the depths of Wiltshire..

    Reaction: Extremely pleased, a little surprised (my school seem to think that NO-ONE gets into Edinburgh), and now waiting on tenterhooks to hear from UCL. If no offer, Edinburgh all the way (and to be honest I'd be thrilled with that). If I get into UCL, well... I've an extremely hard choice coming up..!

    Rep:
    Course: French and English Literature
    Offer Conditions: Unconditional
    International or Home/EU: Home so basically I have to pay £9000 haha.
    Reaction: over the moon. I got rejected last year on the basis of higher predicted grades than I have now. I was expecting an AAA offer conditional on my french re-sit but this is great news and I think I'll probably accept even though it's really far away from my family! I will wait to hear from Durham but yeah

    Rep:
    Course: Spanish and Business Studies
    Offer Conditions: Conditional BBB (predicted A*A*A)
    International or Home/EU: Home - Bristol, England.
    Reaction: :O I thought English boys didn't get into Edinburgh?!

    Rep:
    Course: English Literature and Philosophy (MA)

    Offer Conditions: Unconditional

    International or Home/EU: UK

    Reaction: Really flipping happy - i got rejected from my first choice UCL on the 2nd and then got my offer from eddy on the 3rd - i'm actually really glad about the rejection because i'm from london and didn't really want to stay + have three lovely friends there already and am waiting for bristol - but leaning towards edinburgh. So so happy!!!

    Rep:
