    I didn't even want to know my banding for english - an A is good enough for me haha. Aw I loved St Andrews, shame they don't do engineering though
    Hopefully it won't take too long! Good luck for Cambridge!!

    Physical natural science at King's.
    I'm considering astrophysics as one of the three modules, providing the interview is successful and co editions are met which is a great ask.
    Which college have you applied for?

    I think for King's they're expecting me to get two A1s and an A2 at advanced higher. I'm currently predicted A1 (chem) A2 (physics, maths - for safety) and B3 in French.
    I really hope you get in :-)

    That's good to hear you can get those UC's! I was told I'd get an unconditional for Edinburgh, Strathclyde and maybe Glasgow depending on my ps and LNAT test result! Oxfords so competitive I pray I get an offer, if that's the case I'm going to study my ass off to get there! Oh that's ideal! I am so jealous you're applying for dentistry it genuinely looks fun!

    Dentistry is so good honestly! The clinical side of it is something else! Based on your results and providing you can make a great P.S I reckon you have every chance in the world of getting offers for Oxford/Glasgow

    I'll admit I really didn't think my application would get to this stage! Dentistry is so hard to get into!

    One of my friends got A1A1A2 from Cambridge, and also from UCL. My other friend got AAB from Oxford if that changes your mind

    I thought they only wanted A and B's? i think you're thinking of the english A*A*A, our equivalent is AAB I believe Im predicted 3As, but they dont predict bandings here :L That's for Physics, Chemistry and Maths to Adv higher Thank you! you too!
