    AAA to include maths or AAB if firm choice
    Did you apply for the MMath? I'm hoping to not get any offer for A*AB for any of my choices

    I didn't, no but I did email them as the course was AAA/AAB asking if they would accept A*AB prediction instead and they said they would as there was a range and they don't give out an offer for A* or something like that
    So is Reading your firm? I like all the univerisities I'm applying, so its really hard to decide :cry2 :

    Hey, I'm thinking of applying for Classical Studies and English Literature at Reading, and they're asking for ABB/BBB. Do you guys know if they take predicted grades into account, as I'm applying with BCD, but I'm going to be predicted either ABB or ABC (I'm retaking modules etc as I basically lost motivation last year and should have achieved much higher grades).

    I applied for MSci Psychology for undergraduates, they made me an unconditional offer for Bsc. I suppose they were right to do so as I might change my mind after the three years and want to do something else, somewhere else.

    I also applied to Southampton, Exeter, York and Nottingham. Reading is in such a good location... I never really thought it was a good university though, so I'm still a bit 'iffy.'

    So far I've had unconditional offers from Southampton and York, hopefully the other too will follow shortly. But it just makes me feel like I should go to a better one since I have the chance. It's ridiculously difficult so I'll probably take as much time as I can before making a decision.

    Good luck to y'all, lol.

    I am applying for Italian and Spanish, they ask for BBB and I got AAB last year so feeling hopeful.
    Sending my UCAS off next week and also applying for Exeter, Southampton, Bristol and Manchester.
    Was thinking about having Reading as my insurance, does anyone know how strict they are with entry requirements or if people get with a D/C?

    Good luck to all!

    Got an offer of ABB/AAC to do International Relations and Politics, bit higher than I was expecting because I applied with ABC. Oh well... Does anyone know how flexible they are when it comes to results on results day?

    Thanks

    No, I signed up for all open days and didn't attend any... I have friends who are currently studying in Exeter and Nottingham, they told me a lot about the unis but it isn't the same as seeing it for yourself.

    I'll probably visit Reading soon, since it's only a train away lol.

    Yeah, hopefully you can get a feel for Reading at least Since I'm an EU applicant (and with what's not in my bank account) I cant exactly just fly over anytime lol, but definitely try if you can since it could be your deciding factor! If I can't make a post-applicant day or even an individual visit early next year, I'll just have to sit and compare course modules and student life for each uni, and go by my impression + what people I know who study in the UK think/have heard.

    When I applied to Reading I was offered ABB, and in my Alevels I got ABC, so I dropped a grade. So if you have a good personal statement, but drop a grade, admissions normally will review your application because they understand the pressures of Alevels.

    But I MUST stress each department is different in how they go about admissions, so obviously I can only talk from a geography perspective.

    Also I would advise if you have the chance and the department run a offer holders day, to attend. As it is a really good opportunity to meet the staff and get to talk to them face to face. It gives you a chance to make sure you really like the feel of the university as well as the department putting a name to your face and your application. Its a bit like a open day but more personalised to the department and course. Its not an interview in any shape or form as they have already given you an offer, its just a great day to visit the university again!

    Hopefully this has helped, and if you have any other questions about Reading and what its like to live and study here, feel free to ask.
