    Hi, I am glad I found this forum! I plan to apply for International Relations and Film Studies (but I am not sure about the combination yet) in St Andrews. I might also apply for PPS in Cambridge

    Hey everyone
    I'm thinking of applying for physics. I'm also thinking of applying for direct entry into the second year, anyone else doing this?

    I'm considering St Andrews, as a mature student, for English Literature. Their degree sounds awesome! Plus, aesthetically, it looks like a fantastic place to study. God, I'm shallow.

    Oh I'm so glad this thread has already started. I can't wait to apply to St. Andrews. I'm applying for either International Relations and French or Psychology and French. Maybe both as I can't decide in which direction I want to go so applying for both would probably give me the opportunity to choose later in the year after I've thought about it and applied elsewhere too.

    Not particularly. Apart from reputation and teaching standards (which you've sort of hinted at), aesthetics/atmosphere are probably the things that made me apply. The feel compared to a concrete jungle like York or a typical redbrick can make all the difference imo.

    i know it's quite early to make such a question, but assuming that i finish school in june 2012 and after that i want to send applications to Scottish unis, so as to start studing at one of them {that depends on whever i'll be accepted or not} in the same year [after the summer finishes- in the same year}
    how yearly should i start the application process?

    Then you'd be going to uni in Sept 2012 which means you should be applying for university later this year (with an equal consideration deadline of January 15th 2012).

    Yes they will give you a conditional offer. A Level students don't get their results till mid-August I think and then they start the next month (or 2 months).
    The deadline of January 15th is for equal consideration, as unis will have LOADS of applications to go through, so it takes a lot of time. Then they need to give people time to sort out accommodation, finance, etcetc.

    I'm planning to apply for Economics and Modern History eventually, hopefully, as a joint honours.

    Although I'm going at the end of 5th year hopefully if it all works out, because I'm older than people in my year group it will work very well, so should be interesting

    Yayyy for Modern History (boo for economics :P). If you have any questions about the modern history course, don't be afraid to ask me. I'm about to start my second year. It's a really good course. Direct the economics questions towards Ecosse_14.
