Yeah I know! Congrats on your offer! I'm actually so so so excited for it, almost counting down the days- yes I'm 100% firming! Are you? What collage did you go for?

The acceptance rate is really low!!
Apparently in 2013 only 10% of applicants for CH SS got an offer:eek:
I got mine in December! Any news from your side yet?

Thanks, it was such a relief to get - I'm pretty sure I'll firm! Josephine Butler, you? but I'm starting to wish I went for a Bailey college... especially since being catered sounds appealing right now!

Same ahah! Well done, it's so competitive! ah I liked the modern feel of JB but I went for St. John's because I'm desperate to be on the Bailey! A. Because I'm lazy and it's where the department is, b. Because i can't cook and C because it's so beautiful and traditional!

They're the exact reasons why I wish I could be on the Bailey! At least I won't have to share a bedroom or bathroom at JB That's what put me off applying to St Chad's, my 2nd choice. I suppose I could end up being reallocated anyways

I see why you'd want a bathroom, when I did the Durham residential everything was lovely and clean but sharing facilities was a bit of a chore when there were no ensuite rooms available! All the collages are nice though, I'd live in a box if it meant Durham! What were your other uni choices if you don't mind me asking?

True, I would probably be happy at any college, though ensuites are a nice touch!

Oxford - rejection after interviews
Nottingham, Birmingham, UEA - unconditional if firm choice

Oxford and Durham have been my favourite choices from the start, though I do like the other courses & unis a lot too, especially Notts

What were yours choices?

Well my application was sent just before winter break last December, so i guess about a month. Shouldn't be long now before they reply to you.
Mine got sent off before yours on 25 November?! And I still haven't got a reply?

Ah I'm sorry about Oxford- I know so many amazing candidates who were turned down by Oxbridge this yeah, idek what they were after!
Durham, Exeter, York, Lancaster and St.Andrewss and I'm just waiting for St.Andrews now!

Yeah I've heard Notts is lovely! Durham is my favourite, Lancaster will probs be my second!

I applied for General Engineering at Grey College and I sent my application at the end of September and I still didn't hear anything from them! 😲
Has anyone heard anything from Durham for General Engineering?

Thank you!
I actually haven't specified which ones i wanted I never knew i should!
I doubt that picking four means youre not as dedicated! the whole point of the course is to give you a broader range of subjects so dont worry about that
what i want to pick though is geography, politics and international relations and I'm not so sure about the third, hbu?? :confused:
Have you gotten any offers from other universities?

Oh that's a good combination! Sociology sounds like it could be good with those two? English, Politics, Sociology and History
Yeah, all but Durham! Applied to exeter, royal holloway, and UEA for history and politics and Kings College for Liberal Arts. What about you?

Hello evreyone, I applied to Durham for management and I realised after I had already sent my PS that there were several mistakes, what do you think my chances are?

Depends on the mistakes, I guess. Was it typos and spelling mistakes?
