    63228923[/url]]Well done! Are you going to a post offer day? I'm wondering if I should go Durham(which is about 6-7 hours on the train from where I live) for a post offer day or I just rule it out now as I'm about 67% sure I don't want to go there.
    I think I will just to see what the department and everything is like. Haha 67% is quite precise, what are your other options? If you're not entirely sure it might be worth visiting cuz you may end up loving/hating it which'd help with the decision!

    Yeah I think the exactness of that number actually really shows how I'm undecided I am. At the moment it's between Durham/UCL and UCL is winning as they want aaa whilst Durham want a*aa. Also, UCL is only an hour away. Sheffield will definitely be my insurance but I'm just so undecided about my firm.

    Fair enough, I guess it depends how confident you are. But I'd say just go with your gut, because if you really love a place you won't mind being far from home!

    Yeah it's so good to visit and can totally alter your perception.. Like I thought I'd like KCL but really didn't at the open day! So I think visiting is defo worth it to see what its really like

    I couldn't find a thread for people wanting to apply to Durham University for 2016 entry so I created this one:-)
    Hopefully we can all help each other and share things we are doing and any revision tips.
    Enter your subject of entry and gcse grades if you want, and a-level subjects you're taking as it can help others decide
    My subject of entry: English and Philosophy (possibly English and History not sure)
    GCSE grades: A*AAAABBBB
    A-levels:
    -English Literature
    -English Language
    -History
    -Philosophy and Ethics

    Yeah my GCSE grades aren't your typical perfect scores but hopefully Durham are not too concerned with having all A/A*'s

    My experience as an Uzbek unfortunately. You have these kids who go on about their private jets, and homes in Surrey (not the **** part).

    Yeah with Durham you almost get the full experience too because you can stay at the college you chose. Dreading the journey there though

    What's an Uzbek? I heard about the students being really pompous before I applied but I just assumed it was the minority.
