    :eek2:. Well played! Congrats.

    Why didn't I get one :bawling:? Our grades are almost completely identical (AAAA, distinction and 1, 1). How did you get the offer? Mail, e-mail or Track? Do they invite you to an open day or anything? Is your's unconditional also, Hash?

    Very very jealous.


    Same position as you Swayum, except I haven't done STEP yet and I'm doing 5 A levels. People with Maths offers: did you mention your UMS in your personal statement? I think my friend did and he got an offer as well, although he is only doing 4 A levels and an AS.

    Alternatively, it could be the PS and reference. I'm now starting to regret the headmaster of my school writing mine - he doesn't know a thing about me.

    Anyway, well done everyone with offers.

    I'm pretty sure my UMS are in my reference but I haven't read it.

    Mine weren't explicitly stated for at least 2 of my subjects, and at no point was it written 296/300 etc in either my reference or PS.

    It makes me worry especially when others have received offers and we were among those being considered.

    No, but my referee mentioned my UMS score (1145/1200) and that I'd achieved 90% or above in all 12 modules.

    I applied for Maf too but all I've got so far is a month old email saying 'we got your UCAS'.

    Seems loads of people are getting offers... do Imperial not tend to interview you for Maf, then? I'm predicted AAAAA Maf, F. Maf, Phys, Chem, Bio at A2...

    What about open days, because so far both Bath and UCL have told me 'we'll give you an offer if you come have a look round on day X'... are people receiving this sort of thing, or just plain offers with grades?

    I should really stop worrying I suppose.

    Got called for an interview at Imperial for Civil Engineering. It looks like lots of people are getting offers from Imperial (not sure whether they are getting offers with or without interviews). As civil engineering is not a very a popular subject, being called for an interview only means that they are considering me as an average candidate . Oh, well, let's see what happens.

    Been invited for visit days at UCL and Southampton.

    Assuming Civ Eng is the same as Physics they will interview all applicants who they may give an offer to. Its only the courses which don't interview (e.g. Maths) which give out so many offers

    Damn... my entire personal statement was actually just 4000 characters worth of "Mafmafmafmafmaf"... Well, Baf seemed fine with it I suppose.

    Wow, ok, good... I was expecting an interview from Imperial more than anyone, save Cambridge, I suppose because of its reputation.

    Baf called me for an 'informal interview' which is weird. They said they'd give me an offer anyway, so what an informal interview is supposed to achieve or be like, I'm not sure. Maybe we wear silly hats.
