    Hey guys! I got 3 A*s (with higher UMS than last year 😏), and so my offer is confirmed. I guess I'll be seeing everyone there in October.

    Congratulations! I am still absolutely in shock about that, I didn't do brilliantly at AS so to see 200/200 at A2 blew my mind. Grade boundaries are awful this year. Also thank god for low psych boundaries, it would appear I only got 43/60 raw marks in one of my psych units but that was still an A*! RS boundaries did us all in - nobody got an A* in my group.

    I called the porters office after giving up with the admissions office. They informed me that the admissions office is closed as they're "desperately trying to deal with people such as your[my]self"...

    Durham is still busy. No one is replying to emails. I'm this close to ripping my hair out.

    Surely closing the admissions office doesn't help? I guess they're responding via email then.

    Best of luck - try and remain calm, take your mind off it for a bit if possible eat some ice-cream etc

    Hmmmm...

    Was Maths dragged down by one module? What were the individual modules?

    I don't think you'd receive an interview as it stands as raw averages unfortunately.

    If you applied for a humanity, your changes would improve, but obviously I'm not recommending you do that.

    AABB is good (don't lose sight of that, they're really good grades) but you'd be struggling for Cambridge, since they're so hot on UMS and your three most relevant subjects (which are what they include as your UMS average) average out to a B. My advice would be to work like hell in A2, apply to some good places (you could get places at a lot of great unis with good predicted and those ASes) and then, if you get the grades for cambridge, reapply in a gap year. That way, if you end up with A*A*A or better you're in a good position to apply, and if not you're going somewhere great anyway.
