    Hi guys! It's awesome that this thread is finally here. Durham is such a great (and competitive) uni, it'll be nice to meet some fellow hopefuls.

    Don't have any equivalent of GSCE grades because I've been studying in the States for the past 5 years. But I'm currently doing the IB and my HLs are History, English and Philosophy

    Hey - I do pretty much the same subjects as you for my AS levels, how are you finding it? I know the IB seems even more of a challenge

    I'm finding it pretty hard because of the workload but it's definitely doable. I think I've found that it's the workload not the content itself that makes IB so hard. But also I went to an International School for all of primary school so I'm sort of used to the IB way of thinking.

    This semester's been way harder than last semester though so I might want to change this in a few weeks ahaha
