    How you found out: Dad woke me up this morning by shoving a letter in my face
    [Insert gushy, smiley-riddled response here]: Eh, its rubbish.

    LOL JK, I AM GONNA DIE WITH HAPPINESS, never thought there was more than a 1% chance that I could actually get an offer, this is my absolute dream come true!!!!!
    blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh
    faxed the letter to my mum to prove it, called all my family members (typical Indian grandparents cried over the phone) and family friends and other friends to see if they had offers too, ran around in the blizzard, still cant believe it! aaaaaaaaaaaah this must be the best day of my life! Think I might go watch the history boys for some solidarity.

    How you found out: They rang while I was at work on Friday
    [Insert gushy, smiley-riddled response here] I was sitting at my desk at work and was just speechless - they must have thought I was fairly dim!! It hasn't sunk in yet even now - I'm still waiting for them to let me know they were only joking.

    I'm on a gap year so I hope it's an unconditional - I didn't realise until a few hours later that it might be based on my Maths A level which I'm continuing with this year - in which case I'm in trouble!! :P

    [Insert gushy, smiley riddled response here] I won't, but it definitely hasn't fully sunk in, there were around 40 interviewees for 8 places, so pretty shocked.

    How you found out: Post - opened my Jesus rejection letter first...
    [Insert gushy, smiley-riddled response here]: I wish I could give the place to my friend. She really really wants to go Oxford. I'm not fussed...

    Although I did do a plane impression in one interview, walked into the door in another (made a very hollow clunk) and called a professor cheeky. Clearly these interviews are very much based on the academic content and not personal failings... Wooop!


    Shameless edit - my boyfriend got a place at Oxford too so I am very much fussed and so damn happy! I shall join the gushing, smiley riddled responses

    Offer: Conditional. I'm being sent a standard letter, (AA), but they are fairly sure they're adjusting and offering me an AB. Its two A levels because I've already finished my English A level. I'm third year sixth form due to biology retakes and various issues haha
    How you found out: They called my mobile in the morning (17th Dec)
    Reaction: I was surprised, the interview didn't go terribly but I didn't have my hopes up at all. I said "yay" then realised I sounded stupid -____-

    Offer: My offer letter gave me an offer of AAA, but from what I understand it is the generic Exeter offer letter and, given I've already sat my A-levels, I'm expecting UCAS track to say "unconditional".
    How you found out: Through the post.

    How you found out: I walked down to my local sorting office this morning, and demanded my mail. I then rummaged through it all, in this tiny office, and ripped open the letter, honestly expecting it to say that I was rejected. AND OMG I HAD AN OFFER.

    Reaction: *OMG FLAIL* Then I rang my parents.
