    Sweet. My mum always says it's your job, as a parent, to give your kids the wings that allow them to fly away. And then they know how to fly back again.

    Don't forget in choosing IB subjects the likelyhood of getting a 7 in the HL subjects. This is by far the hardest part of IB. English universities are very unfair in their treatment of offers for IB candidates. The higher grade univerisities are usually asking HL766 or even 776 in the case of Cambridge. If you are doing subjects like English and History only 3% of candidates worldwide will obtain a HL7 in the final exam. Even if you could be very lucky to get a 7, the problem is your school cannot realistically predict you will get a 7. I had the problem with KCL that I chose the 3 most demanding IB HL subjects. Even though the school reference stated I was the highest achieving student in the subjects and would highly likely be in the top 5% of all students, that was still not enough to give a predicted grade of 7. Result automatic rejection from KCL for not meeting criteria. That they don't understand the improbability of there own criteria is telling. You will be far better doing the 3 most easy subjects rather than to stretch yourself academically, either that or arrange to do Alevel instead.
    Well I see your point, but I do not necessarily agree with you. Because teachers are supposed to, and they do, predict you depending on what you have received for your IAs, as well as, how well you have done on similar Paper 1 or Paper 2 practices in class. Surely things may go worse during exams or you may even surpass your predicted grades (which is great) but if the teacher is confident to predict you a 7 depending on the capabilities you've demonstrated in class, then that is what convinces the university that you are a hard worker. You may argue that students negotiate their predicted grades. True, but then that's a gamble that they are positioning themselves in and hence why offers are usually only conditional. Otherwise, the unis would just look at your transcript like American schools do. So my point is that I think some unis ask for 7 in HL subjects not only because they want exemplary students in their school, but they want people who are determined-hard workers in general. Because real life is not about taking exams and surely they are aware of that.

    I got the exact same today! tried to swap me to social policy also it's a shame to be rejected but oh well! have you got offers elsewhere?
    I'm really sorry to hear you were rejected! I am still waiting and I sent my application off in mid October. If you don't mind me asking, what did you get in you GCSEs and AS Levels? Also, how did you score in the LNAT? What do you study at A2 and what are you predicted?

    I just want to know now! Even if it is a rejection, I'd rather know or not! Good luck in the Summer and i hope you go to a UNI you like!

    Pretty sure that would nullify you're ability to hold onto your offer because it's all done through UCAS

    You can defer for a year but you can't reapply and defer. If you wanted to reapply, you will have to reject any offer you do get (even if it's for deferred entry) and then reapply.

    What if I defer, check my final result in the IB (june), and then say no or yes depending on my final score?

    Congrats on the offers everyone! It's nice to see those who have been waiting for so long to finally hear back :-)

    Has anyone heard anything about course content changes as a result of the EU Referendum? I'm just curious as to whether we will still study European Union Law if we leave the EU. You could argue that many European laws will still stand whilst the transition out of the EU takes place, but by the time we are qualified they will probably be a distant memory (unless they are integrated into English law in some other way).

    Certainly universities won't even think of changing anything until it is certain. I would argue it would anyway stay mostly the same. The UK law part would have to be expanded as specific laws were taken back but the EU module would remain the same and still relevant for companies and law firms interacting with Europe.

    That's a valid question!
    First of all, I think England is not going to leave the EU. It would be a huge mistake. London is the commercial centre of Europe and is a great place for Russians, Asians and Arabians to invest as it is a part of the EU and laws are protected by it. Also, we should think about the number of students coming to England every year. We pay 9000 quids (European students) and international students pay up to 16500. If tuition fees change, then there will be a huge decrease in the number of applicants. Consequently, entry requirements will drop drastically and universities' reputation will change for the worse. Leaving the EU will definitely change some laws and what happens to those practising the law of the EU in England?

    Got offers from UCL, Nottingham and Warwick. I feel like I'll like them all and can't decide which to firm and which to put as my insurance. Waiting on KCL too, but I'm mainly deciding between the three. Advice?

    Yes you could choose after your deferred entry but you'd have to give them a decision by a certain date.
    I know someone who applied to Strathclyde for Engineering in fifth year who deferred his application but then declined all offers so he could apply for a different course in the following September.
