    Hey I applied to St Johns too for Biosciences! Don't worry about Cambridge, you'll make your memories at Durham - probably have a slightly better social life too!
    Haha that's very true! Hopefully see you at St Johns!

    You must have an amazing application form I'm still waiting for a decision. I can't decide between St Andrews and Durham.

    I'm just doing the straight politics course, I really liked it because it has opportunities for placements abroad! I loved Chads from the moment I read about it, although I haven't been to visit yet! Have you been before?!

    I would not worry, a friend of mine applied the same day as me, for the same course, and only got an offer this week, despite me getting one well before Christmas. Durham are weird with how long it takes to make an offer!

    I applied to do Geography (BA) and really didn't expect to get an offer back so I didnt put a college down! I got my offer on the 7th of January and applied in October! The entry requirements are A*AA, but they've lowered them for me to AAA or A*AB. So happy!

    Also, does anybody know how long it takes for college allocation/ how they do it if you didn't put a preference down? Good luck guys

    Got my Cambridge rejection the other day, but to be honest I'm really not too upset as I've got an offer from Durham (came in early December if you're wondering). Assuming I get my two A's this year, I'll be doing Law and if I don't get re-allocated I'll be in St. Mary's. Thought I'd post on here since I'm kinda excited about going to Durham to be honest

    Edit: just realised people have put their grades and stuff on so I'll do the same:

    AS: AAAA
    Predicted: A*A*A*A*
    GCSE: 5A*4A
    Also applied to Warwick, Nottingham, Bristol and Cambridge (rejected by Cambridge, offer from Bristol and Durham, haven't heard from the other two)

    Wow, didn't know this thread existed, I was wondering why the other Durham thread was so quiet!

    Received an offer for Natural Sciences - St Mary's on Wed 6th Jan, a few hours after my Oxford biochemistry rejection. So it really helped!

    A*AA, I chose biology and earth sciences (ideally would've been chemistry but I don't do A2 maths), and was having second thoughts about ES but I've been told on here it is easy to change once you start if you don't like it.

    So it's either between Durham or UCL (also NatSci) for me!
