    stats: predicted 4 A* (maths FM chem and physics)
    got 5 A at AS (above+french)
    Applying to Oxford, Bath, Edinburgh, Manchester and Imperial! Have an interview at Manc in Nov and acknowledgements from all but Imperial.
    Panicking slightly as my lowest offer (if I get them!) will be A*AA...

    Risky! I've talked to quite a few people now who have applied with an all or nothing attitude of I'm either going to the best unis or I'm resiting the year.

    I've got 3 AAA unis
    1 AAB
    1 ABB
    So I feel slightly more relaxed than you guys, I imagine...

    Will be interesting to see if the offers match their official requirements

    well they do a broader first year, where most students take 3 different options and then specialise, so there wouldn't be a big knowledge gap. id definitely cover some things over summer though before term starts

    Are you applying for Warwick as well??? It may take longer coz joint course usually needs two department to make a decision. Don't worry!!!
    When did you submit your UCAS form?? I sent it on last Friday.

    Yes I'm applying for MathPhys there too I submitted a day or two ago, just before the oxbridge deadline I won't worry then, I just expected that you had your reply in a matter of hours or something!

    No I didn't get the offer that quickly...Probably because physics is a kind of course that the university needs to consider carefully about people's application so it takes longer time. My friends who applied for maths got offer really quickly.
