    Just discovered this thread! So hey guys!

    I've applied for zoology at Liverpool, Bristol, Cardiff, Southampton and Swansea. Sent it off a few days before deadline and already received two offers within a week! One was Southampton with AAB and the other Swansea however haven't received the offer grades through on UCAS yet.

    Its a long story but basically I'm currently doing a gap year but resitting pretty much all my A2 exams. Current grades are:
    Biology - C (A at AS)
    Chemistry - D (resat units 1 and 2 last year alongside A2s and ended up neglecting my a2 exams to do better in as resits)
    Maths - B (resat M1 and C2 alongside A2s as got a D at AS)
    AS Geography - A

    anyways fingers crossed for us all getting the grades and offers we want!
    Have your grades for Swansea come through yet? It can take a few hours but if it's been longer than that I'd suggest either contacting the university to ask or contacting UCAs directly. Congrats on your offers so far though!

    Thank you! The phone number looked like a spam number so I didn't pick up, but they left a voicemail. I think it might be because UCAS aren't sending out emails at the moment? I checked and my offer has come up on UCAS but they didn't email me telling me that one of my applications had changed? Weird

    Congratulations! I had a missed call today but they didn't leave a message so I'm guessing it's not Exeter... I hope I'll get an offer soon too 😂

    I very nearly applied to Leeds but I didn't like the look of the course as much as I liked the look of Newcastle's so I switched it! Thank you very much, good luck with your interview, I've heard Leeds is really lovely!

    I got an offer from Exeter for Zoology with study abroad, that's 2 offers so far now (Lincoln being the other) though Exeter seems to be like my tougher option since they want me to get a B in GCSE maths... Which I'm currently retaking for the fourth time

    Mine was meant to be on 18th, but because I'm going up to Leeds on 21st for rugby, they agreed for me to have it on 22nd instead. I reckon it will be mostly about your personal statement, elaborating on what you said. Could you give me a heads-up after yours please?

    Hi all, I've applied for zoology at Sheffield, Liverpool, Leicester, Hull and Lincoln. I sent my application off on jan 1st, and I have 3 conditional offers and an unconditional so far. I'm just waiting on Liverpool.
    Sheffield : conditional AAB
    Leicester: conditional reduced offer to BBB
    Hull: unconditional
    Lincoln: conditional
    I'm just hoping for a reply soon from Liverpool so I can sort out my final two!

    Ah I see! Mine's on the 11th, so pretty soon... eek. From what I've heard, they ask a few questions on why you want to study at Leeds in particular; so I think it's just an informal chat as well as trying to suss out who will put Leeds as firm.

    Yeah that would make sense. Good luck with yours! Let me know if it's completely different to what we thought haha

    Hull is much higher in the biological science league tables compared to Anglia Ruskin so academically that might be the better option for you. In terms of student life and location Hull seems to be near to the sea/rivers where as Anglia Ruskin looks as if it's in the middle of nowhere - but ultimately it comes down to where you feel most comfortable
