    It varies. UCL took a day, Imperial took about a month, the others took about 2 months (apart from Oxford which took three).

    I was wondering this exact same thing a few hours ago in mapping! According to the OED, it's "Gray-Wakeh"... so a strange juxtaposition of the English and German pronounciations. Having said that, I heard people pronouncing it "Gray-Wackie" and "Grey-Wack" today (including a demonstrator) so maybe it's a question nobody really knows the answer to.

    I don't think it's "Gray-vacker" though since most anglicised German words don't retain the original pronounciation.

    Good choice, might see you next year! Did you have an interview this week? I know they've been carrying out Skype interviews.
    Okay thank you! some of my pronunciations to geological phenomenon are hilarious

    I know it's their minimum offer How rare is it? I think it probably reflects my predicted grades more than any exceptional performance in the interview.



    Ahhh oh well - Thank you ! Have you had an offer yet?
    Yes, got 3 As as well I had no idea how the interview had gone though!

    Well I thought mine had been sub-par, I stumbled my words a fair amount and was thinking too quickly, I also had a sick feeling that i'd got a description of the factors that affect the strength of an ionic lattice wrong so I was dreading receiving news about whether I had an offer or not!

    If it's the same thing I got then yes, it is compulsory. There are a few talks, a tour around the NOC (and accommodation but that's optional) and an interview.

    It was too far away for me and I found Bristol and Southampton's modules more appealing to my personal interests. I'm afraid I don't know a huge amount about Exeter, I think it's in a very pretty location though?

    Geology at Exeter is taught here https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@50.17...!3m1!1e3?hl=en
    Whereas the Exeter university campus and Exeter itself are 100 miles away.
    That's what put me off completely.

    Did everyone you speak to have completely different interviews? When I was there you'd have no idea we were all applying to the same course they were that far removed from each other!

    That's exactly what put me off applying to Exeter, I don't want to be in the middle of nowhere at uni. It hasn't even got good transport links.

    By the way, if any of you are interested in Seismology, you might want to subscribe to the Earthquake Notification Service. They send you an email when an earthquake happens in the world (you can set minimum magnitude thresholds so you don't get spammed) and it has links to lots of interesting information like damage predictions, shake maps, focal mechanisms and seismographs.
