    Cardiff is my firm 👌
    I've emailed about it but not a clue. They wanted DDD-DDM and I'm predicted D*DD so it must be my personal statement or reference. Not a clue!
    yes Cardiff is a wonderful place I'm sure you'll like it there they have sent me an interview but with everything going on I don't think I'll go

    Whaaat?! That's so cutthroat :facepalm: It might just be that your course was really full and they accepted other people first, for some reason! It's kind of odd that they rejected you even though you exceeded the requirements too - defo puts me on edge since I haven't had a decision been made yet :afraid: let me know what they say when they get back to you! I'm sorry to hear but Cardiff is still amazing!

    I hope that's not why they rejected me, I got my application in on the 5th November :facepalm: I got a rejection from Leicester too a few hours after and they wanted DDM! My personal statement was quite risky tbh so I think it was that. You'll probably get an offer though if you meet the requirements. At least my rejection shows they do actually consider more than just grades though!

    Really?! I thought Cardiff would've at least been harder to get onto, so that's confusing! How come your personal statement was risky? Haha but there is my problem, because I don't meet the grade requirements:afraid: I think they ask for DD (BTEC) and B at A level = AAB. or DM and an A = ABB. I'm predicted D*D* C. I called them up on Thurs and they told me that they're sifting through heaps of applications atm so they couldn't tell me how long they'll be, I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed:argh:

    I managed to receive 3 undergraduate offers (for the different course choices I applied to) and a foundation year offer from Sussex, with the remaining undergraduate offer from Essex. Not too sure how I got them, considering I achieved DEE at AS level and my predicted grades don't meet the undergraduate requirements. But hey, I'm not at all complaining - just super relieved! I know my friend got a rejection for the foundation course, even though we are predicted the exact same grades; so I'm super surprised I even managed to get undergraduate offers. Decided to firm Economics and Finance, and put the foundation year offer as my insurance choice as the offer is lower. Turns out doing a BTEC isn't so bad!

    Thank you, and you! I've detailed my offers above. How did you do?

    i thought i would get rejected from Sussex as i got rejected from all my other choice universities because of my current grades but they accepted me. @[email protected] my friend was saying its most probably because of my personal statement (that she looked through before giving the thumbs up and advice on my personal statement). btw im doing BTEC too~ i applied for the first year because i knew they would offer me the foundation if i didnt get the grade.
