    Well, Sheffield is where my parents are from and whenever I visit the UK I spend most of the time there (I live in Spain currently). I know and love the city, I have family there and I went on a Campus tour at the uni and absolutely loved it.

    I wasn't completely sure what course I wanted to do when I sent the application, but I also wanted to send it off as soon as possible and, to be honest, whatever science course I would have done at Sheffield i would have been happy.

    As far as my Personal Statement, it was geared more towards biology. However I centred it more around my childhood experience in Spain on a boat. I added a few sentences about my interest in the connection between biology and chemistry, and about having an interest in animal behaviour, and a genetics study my teacher had done.

    As for the grades. I'm studying the Spanish baccalaureate and I'm predicted an 8'7, which is halfway between an AAB and an AAA. I have an offer asking for an AAB, ie an 8'5. Also I need a 9 in Biology and either chemistry or maths.

    Good luck on getting an offer! What are you applying for?
    Thanks, I'm applying for biochemistry, but I just sent off a few days ago so don't know how long it'll take.

    I went to Sheffield for the 1st time on their open day & was really impressed with the place, so fingers crossed :afraid:

    I got an unofficial offer for biochemistry. It doesnt say the required grades, the letter I received wants me to come to an informal interview/open day first.

    I sent in application mid september.
