    Hey guys, I've heard back from all my other unis so now I'm just waiting to hear back from Durham. Did everyone else get an email from admissions about having to prove you've lived in the UK for the past three/five years? I found the wording of it a bit strange since they haven't given me an offer but I'm probably looking into things too much haha

    York, Lancaster, Sheffield and Newcastle. All have given me offers so I'm deciding between York (AAA) and an unconditional from Lancaster. I hope you hear soon, and I hope it's good news!

    Thanks ha, bit demoralising to be rejected. Have you given any more thought as to what your decision will be?

    Thank you but it if isn't, it's definitely not the end of the world! Ooo congrats! I have offers from York and Newcastle too and probably will firm York (if I don't get an offer) so I might see you there!

    i don't want this to come accross as obnoxious or as the result of some self inflated ego because it really isn't , I'm not the kind of kid to expect stuff, but so far i have no uni offers from where id ever want to go (this is to study history). Durham was never like a massive dream of mine but i have always really liked the idea of possibly going there and i just got rejected and I'm still waiting to hear back from my last uni choice UCL. i understand there is more to it than just grades, and I'm sure my personal statement is quite commonplace. but i was just wondering if there are any other people who have applied for subjects with linear a levels (as in ones taken over 2 years) and have found that in any way more difficult, or that universities were more weary to them. I do Pre-U History so have all my exams at the end of this year, while the rest of my a levels are divided into the more typical AS and A2. i got 9 A* and 3 A's at GCSE and 3 A's at AS level in psychology, chemistry and economics and then i have my Pre-U history, i dropped chemistry and continued with history psychology and economics and i am predicted 3 A*. i promise this isn't some cry for attention or a fish for compliments, i just wanted some common reassurance that other people have this 2 year A level thing and they still got offers from the unis they wanted to go to, as i know Durham is extremely competitive and congrats to all those with offers. but if i wasn't to get an offer from Ucl than for me there is no point in getting into all that debt. so do you think it would just be best to apply next year with my actual grade in history rather than just having the last kinda reference or checkpoint in the subject all the way back at GCSE.

    Hey guys, I received my offer on the 23rd of February (for law) and was supposed to get my allocation within two weeks, but I have yet to receive one. should I be worried about this?
    Check your junk folder and go back through your emails, I got my allocation within 3 days. If you still can't find it give them a ring

    Another prestigious uni! You shouldn't feel bad! I have ice cream and chocolate. It'll be fine, all things considered it isn't the end of the world. Need to concentrate on choosing between my others now.

    Genuinely tired of waiting now. If I didn't need 2 choices for the sake of a safety net, I think I'd probably have just firmed and withdrawn from my remaining choices by now. The drawn out wait is really getting upsetting.
