Got an offer the other day for Economics With Business Placement (L106)
A*AA in any order in Economics, Government & Politics and Mathematics. Not sure if i'll get an A in politics though, do you think i'd still get in with A*A*AB in maths, further maths, econ and the B in politics?

Oh wow. Congratulations! They must have been very sure about you. that is reassuring, hopefully I won't be waiting too long! I understand why they do wait, considering everyone is guaranteed a college etc, limited amount of places and they really have to be strict with intake. Yup, was 2 hours ago!
All I have is a little life experience, a good PS and a **** hot reference. You'll be fine, you've got some outstanding offers as it is anyway!

I think college allocations will play a huge part in where people decide to go

Thanks so much! I was always set on firming either Kings, York or Durham! Glad I have got one all 5 of yours are brilliant, you should be so proud! i applied for St Chads too but with competition like you i don't stand a chance haha you really do deserve it i wouldn't mind what college i got into tbh! Yes, I love the look of York's too! and a year abroad would be great. I suppose i'd prefer york or durham to kings because London would be really expensive, but the modules at Kings are so good! and i could do UCL modules since they're both under UOL. You should hear back start of February about your college
I live in London at the moment and rushing to get away because it is so expensive! Year abroad sounds lovely.. where do you want to go? And I am sure Durham will be lucky to have you.. by the looks of things there are quite a few unis fighting for u!!!!

I haven't been to Durham so wouldn't know! But like, if for example you applied to the big lovely Castle and ended up in a random one far away, you probably wouldn't want to go.

Aw darn lol. North America would be where i'd want to go the most, but I'd happily go to South America Haha it wouldn't feel real if i got an offer from Durham :eek: it would be a dream. I wouldn't say that lol! I thought Kings would be harder to get into than York but maybe i'm wrong by the looks of it

Haha that's definitely a bonus. Very good. Leeds is great! But yeah, i'd say Durham would be the best out of those for History anyway.

Aww I see. Yeah! Most seem pretty nice in Durham City and they'd never give you one on Queens Campus if your course is at Durham City, and vice-versa. But yeah i suppose if someone has their heart set on one then it could suck. If you get rejected from your preferred college, will another college DEFINITELY show interest in you? Durham say each offer holder is guaranteed college accommodation, was just wondering.

I don't think it's whether a college like actively wants you. More they allocate students so that there's a good mix of each subject/course in each college

Just got an offer yesterday for Maths A*AA! Applied to Josephine Butler college.
I've applied for maths too but I'm still waiting for a reply. It's been nearly two months. How long did it take for you to get your offer?
