    Haha, well it was Oxford. Guess I come under the classic oxbridge reject list. But yeah, hopefully durham is first choice now
    It's okay I'm a cambridge reject, but everything happens for a reason, and I got my Durham offer the day after my rejection, so things worked out incredibly well in my case. I think there needs to be less of a stigma around being an Oxbridge reject, because a lot of us are straight A* state school kids, and it's as if no one else fixates on being rejected from any other unis, not even medicine rejects get the same treatment. Honestly the healthiest thing is to not dwell on your rejections because it's not like when you go for a job they care about where you've been rejected from, they only care where you got accepted to. Best of luck, I'll hopefully see you in October, if not on the visit days.

    (Sorry if this feels like a semi-rant it's late and I've been doing M3)

    Does anyone know anything about the Japanese course at Durham? I know there are 6 contact hours a week for the language, but does anyone know the class sizes or what is covered in those 6 hours?

    Has anyone still not heard back yet? I applied for phys in September and have heard nothing, considering to opt for Warwick as my firm instead or should I stay patient? Hopefully others are in this position too, albeit for different courses
    Exact same situation as you(including just firming warwick out of spite) but i applied on the 14 of january
    I have sleent many an hour trawling thsese forums trying to gauge how many offers they have sent to pure physics applicants but can only find evidence of offers to those applying to theoretical/astrophysics

    I just called admissions who said we would hear by March 31st at the latest, but hopefully sooner.
    Also if we havent had a reply by then to contact admissions.
    So potentially 2 weeks wait.
