    Surely circumstances would be different considering you're a mature applicant? Maybe email them and see what else you could send in, I doubt work from 10 years ago proves anything about your abilities now :/
    Oh! To clarify I mean my essays are only from last year, but they were the first pieces of academic writing I had done since I left school ten years ago So they're a bit janky and awkward. I'm hoping maybe the college will consider that without me mentioning it just because I am a mature applicant? Touch wood!

    Oh sorry for misunderstanding! Maybe you could mention that in your cover letter? I don't really get how written work works either haha

    Although I am sure it is not as bad as you think

    GCSEs: 8A*s 2As
    AS: AAB (A in Spanish and French, B in biology)
    A2 (predictions): A*A*A (A in biology)
    College: Merton

    I have a really quick question!
    I'm applying for French and Spanish but I was just wondering can my submitted pieces of work be from my AS year?

    I don't see why not but I think they'd prefer it to be from A2.. don't quote me on that though!

    It doesn't matter lol, Physics is heavily reliant on Maths anyway.

    I'm applying for Classics (course 2b), what about you? Which college?
    Mm, lovely. I'm applying for Classical Arch. and Ancient History, which is a similar course. I'm thinking of either St. Johns, Brasenose or Merton— still quite torn between the three, but right now I feel more partial to the middle one.

    I find it interesting that the number of neurotics applying (or planning) to Cambrdige, who make such threads, is far greater than the number for Oxford.

    IGCSEs: 7A* 2A 2B. Hoping to make up for my lack of A* with a good BMAT!
    A Levels: 3A* 3A. Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Greek, Physics, Computing respectively.
    Course: Medicine
    College: St. Hugh's

    Do you think it'd be too late sending in an application this close to the deadline? My school hasn't written my reference letter yet so my application hasn't been sent. :/
