    All this stuff about Warwick giving out offers starting today is making me nervous! I wish the referee at my school would come back from Japan so he can add my references and send my application off

    Swansea was through clearing, heard back in an hour or so. Can't comment on how they are applying directly as I only applied directly to Oxford, Warwick, Bristol, Nottingham and UCL.

    Oxford was a rej pre-interview in December, Warwick took a week, Bristol decided to wait until April before giving me an offer (after going to their invite only, pre-offer applicant day thing), UCL was 3 months and Notts was a month.
    Urgh I hope Notts is fast this year. Last year a guy got his offer from them in like 2 weeks for Econ.

    Thanks! It was definitely a relief to get it in. She applied for archaeology. she's been focused on both arch and uk for years so she knew what she needed to have in place.

    Hi!

    I'm actually also a USA applicant applying for archaeology (I've been interested in archaeology and studying in the UK since the 8th grade) and I haven't met any people applying for the same so far so it's a relief knowing there's someone else in the same boat. Best of luck to your daughter!

    I'm literally distraught at how I may not be predicted any A*s even though they've all said they wouldn't be surprised to see me get A*A*A*

    What makes it even worse is that there will be people who got Bs at AS being predicted A*s, as well as those who got the same grade as me, and people who didn't even take the AS exams who will also be predicted A*s. Why do I have to have such awkward teachers may have to completely change my uni plans

    You may not be so you still have a chance. But tbh I think I'd bring in your parents to school no later than Wednesday! That's totally unfair!!

    I don't think that'll help, it'll just make the relationship between myself and my teachers awkward

    A*s are "too risky to predict", they've seen "too many fantastic students fail to get A*s" and they'd "feel more comfortable in the knowledge that I will get an A rather than might get an A*"

    That's complete ******** imo, I'd definitely try and get higher ups or even your parents involved if you can.

    Too funny! I just saw your post in the 2017 applicants thread and had the same thought. She's in the same boat--has wanted to be an archaeologist since young child and focused on the UK schools since middle school. I will post in other thread, but you guys have Durham overlap for sure. Best of luck to you as well!

    I know right I might get the Oxbridge coordinator at my school to speak to at least my maths teacher so I can be predicted A*AA. Although that would mean no Cambridge application which is gutting but the chances are so small anyway.
