Name: Erin
Location: Suffolk, England
Course: Mathematics
GCSEs (or equivalent): A*AAAAABBB
AS or equivalent grades: ABB
A2 or equivalent subjects: Maths, History, Music
A2 (predictions or achieved)/ Equivalents: A* (history) A (music) A/B (maths, my teacher hasn't decided yet)

I'm studying maths as I love it, though I'm better at my other subjects. Would I more likely get a place if I applied for bachelors or masters? Also, how easy is it to sort out bursaries?

The bursaries offered by the uni are sorted out by them. They will inform you if you get any. :yep: Just make sure you allow SF to share info with Dundee.

Course: Adult Nursing
Predicted: 30 IB Points

I was wondering, I have yet to send in my UCAS application, but how long does it normally take for a reply concerning interviews? Thank you x
Hi, I'm a first-year adult nursing student with Dundee at the fife campus
i sent my application away a week from the deadline last year and didn't get an interview until mid February, i know interviews were running over into march and even past the deadline they had set for offers going out (30th march im sure)
hopefully your not waiting to long. good luck with your application. im happy to answer any questions you may have.

It doesn't matter when you apply, just as long as it is before the deadline. They make offers as they come in, it seems, but all applications are assessed on an equal basis if they are submitted before the 15th January.

I am a Swedish IB student and I'm planning on applying to the Environmental Sustainability course.

Any idea about people's opinion on this course? Personally I am terrible in the sciences and maths subjects and I was wondering how much of Math and science is apparent within this course?

Also if I ever graduate with this degree I want to try and get a job in Australia with it

Thank you!

Hey,

I just sent my UCAS application of yesterday, may I ask what the interviews were like? I have worries ranging from what to wear to the style they do their interviews and type of questions x

Hey,

You are also doing the IB? I wasn't expecting anyone else to be doing the IB! I wish you the best at this busy time of year, what subjects do you take? X

Hi! Just received my offer from Forensic Anthropology for Advanced entry into level 2 (so I miss year 1)! At first, they only gave me the offer for level 1, however, when I called them up to see if it was a mistake, they said that they would move me up to level 2

My stats are:
GCSE: 6A*, 7As and 2Cs (Our school is crazy about doing GCSEs! I took a couple of them a year early)
AS: AAAb
A2 predictions: A*A*AA (Biology, Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry respectively)

I'm actually a medical applicant, and my personal statement was heavily geared towards medicine! I'm over the moon that they actually considered me, and even if I don't get into medicine, this is an awesome course to study!

Stick it in under A2. It doesn't matter much though! Just come say hello.

Thank you! I think they seriously ignored quantity over quality. I feel if I cut back on 4 of them and just focused on 11, it would have pulled my grades up!

My school made me repeat GCSE Maths because I got a B in it. And that was in one year!

Anyway, I did Advanced Entry to Dundee myself, Politics.
