Congratulations! I also hold an offer for Philosophy and Literature, but it is only a B in Philosophy A-level (got 2 As already). What did you apply for at UCL? Also, is Bristol really better than Warwick, or is it just a personal preference?
Excellent - congratulations to you as well

For UCL, I've applied for English Q300. Originally, I was going to apply for English everywhere, but I've fallen in love with Philosophy, so all my applications other than UCL are now English/Philosophy. I don't think Bristol is any better than Warwick to be honest with you - it's all a matter of preference. I'd say in terms of prestige they're equal. The only reasons I slightly favour Bristol is because it's a fairly big city and I'm from a big city myself (Sheffield) and I'd be a bit worried about being stuck in a Campus uni for 3 years with only Coventry to go to. Bristol also slightly edged it for me in terms of the atmosphere/feel it gave me.

That said, I still think Warwick is absolutely amazing and the on-site facilities are second-to-none. I also like the fact that the English/Philosophy is a properly integrated course unlike Bristol.

Where else have you applied?

Ive applied for Q300 at all of my choices, I had my Cambridge interview today and didn't think it went brilliantly, especially the comparative essay. Im now getting more nervous about Warwick and UCL because I have heard nothing from them and Warwick is my first choice

Yes, the course at Warwick is indeed excellently integrated. Furthermore, there are many continental philosophy modules at Warwick, which unlike analytic ones combine well with literature in general.

Apart from Warwick, I have applied to LSE, KCL, and UCL for pure philosophy, and KCL for liberal arts. So far I have heard only from Warwick, but then again my application was sent off last week. Will you give up philosophy if UCL takes you?

That must be annoying.
Did they specify which paper you should take also what do they want you to get in Step?

:rolleyes: i misread their offer letter. i should be either A*AA ( A* in maths ) or AAA ( with 2 in STEP)
Their typical offer is A*AA ( With 1 in Step ) , so that means i got a bit lower offer

Nice you're lucky, my offer is A*AA 1 in step or A*A*A 2 in step. Do you still plan on doing step?

I havent heard back from all of my choices, but my college doesnt teach STEP and they doesnt know how to sign up either. Do you think we can do it without being taught?
:confused::confused:
Are you going to WArwick next year too?

Our school don't teach it aswell sadly so I'll have to do it on my own, it should be possible to do it on your own but will be quite difficult as there will be no guidance. Talk to your schools exam officer to find out if they can enter your for step if not tell him/her you need to take it and if they can help you to be entered, if not there is always external exams centres where you can do it but you'll obviously have to pay. If I don't get an offer from UCL Warwick will be my firm so there is a chance I may go to Warwick

Paying 7000pounds/year for international to study in a 6th form state school like me was really expensive, my parents have to save a lot of money. Looking at that 20000 pounds tuition fees of my warwick offer is killing me
