• Durham applicants stalking page 2014 entry

TSR Wiki > University > Choosing a University > University Guides > University of Durham > Durham Applicants Stalking Page 2014 Entry



This page is intended to make it easy to access and share information about applicants to Durham for entry in 2014. Do not feel obliged to enter your details or fill in all columns of the table.


If you are not experienced, or comfortable, in editing Wiki pages then feel free to post on Durham undergraduate applicants for 2014 entry! Mark I with your details and someone should be happy to update it here for you. Do not edit someone else's entry unless they have asked you to do so: everyone is entitled to have as much or as little information on here as they wish.

Please Read

In general, just copy what other people have done then replace their sections with your own. Basically though

"|-" without quotes starts a new row ie starts your entry

"||" without quotes starts a new column. If you have nothing to fill in your column, you must put "||||" so that it registers this.

To put your member profile link, go to your profile, copy the link at the top and inside your column, paste it inside of square brackets with your user name also inside the brackets. Eg [link name] with the link being the link and name being your membership name. They must be separated by a space though.

When writing in your subjects, for clarity please post in the respective order of your grades. For example if you did English Lit (A), History (A), Maths (B) and Economics (C), your AS and A2 grades should be respective, so in the AS column it should be AABC because that's the order entered and in the A2 column, if you were dropping economics, your predicted grades would be AAA so it's assumed economics has gone. Adding (dropped) would also help. Adding an AS in your A2 year would read AAAa to denote it's only an AS and should be added last in the subjects column.

Someone else's stuff

Remember, YOU CAN'T BREAK ANYTHING! All edits are reversible. Good luck!!


NEW: UMS column has been added for those courses that require UMS marks eg physics and mathematics

Please add the UMS that Durham requires off you only. For example for physics Durham only asks for physics and maths UMS so please only provide these. Add as a percentage average of units.

Although of course anyone is free to add their UMS and you are welcome to do so.


Please take note that the table is alphabetically ordered by course, college and then username.
