    Royalmail have a habit of being slow particularly when you are expecting something really important. Sheffield did say they aimed to notify everyone inside 3 weeks, so Id sit tight till end of the month or give them a call?

    Best of luck!!

    Hey, so on track it says AAA including Biology and Chemistry, no mention of my 3rd A level English Lit or anything saying it excludes general studies, will this offer include general studies then???? anyone else thinking the same?

    "A levels:
    The minimum requirement for entry onto the programme is AAA, including Chemistry and Biology.
    The third A level may be in any subject. At Sheffield we do not give preference to any particular subject for this third A-level choice. Similarly preference is not given to applicants who are taking 4 A-levels or additional AS levels."

    So looks like general studies or eng lit at grade A including A's in Chem and Bio will secure your offer
