Oh ok, I was also tempted to go for a new language but decided to stay with what I am already studying, I can always learn other languages later on
Ah you see French is the only language A-Level I do I also LOVE Italy as a country and its history is fascinating. Where else have you applied besides Warwick?

I applied to Oxford (always worth a try however small the chances are ), Bristol, Bath, Durham and of course Warwick.
Which uni's have you considered/applied to?

Ooh lovely, I went for Cambridge, Warwick, Durham, Edinburgh and Leeds in the end. I also considered Bristol and UCL, and I've looked round Sheffield and KCL, but that was before I'd decided on Italian. I wish King's London did Italian, because their French department seemed so so good! But the way my choices work, I have Cambridge (ultimate dream), Durham Warwick and Edinburgh (offer from any of these and life is sorted) and then Leeds (my insurance, which I also really love!). I'd happily go to any, it's just whether they'd happily have me!

Oooh we have some similar choices! I was also considering Leeds, but went for Bristol because it is closer to home I did not want to go for UCL because they wouldn't let me do two european languages which is what I wanted. Edinburgh was definitely way too far for me, as well as St Andrews which seemed really nice. Oh well, I am still really happy with my options. Oxford is obviously my ultimate dream, but otherwise I love the other options as well, so I am hoping I at least get some offers!

Do you have to do an application exam for Cambridge? I have one for both French and German on the 2nd of November (3 days away!!!) and I am extremely worried. I go to a comprehensive state school and so we have not been taught much in terms of grammar or translations, so I have been trying to learn at home but there is so much to cover. I did an example paper as well for both French and German and it is definitely difficult, even my teachers were struggling!

Hey, I've applied to study History and Politics at Oxford, Warwick, Edinburgh, Manchester and Nottingham. Anybody else similar?
Exactly the same except I went for Leeds instead of Edinburgh. Got offers from Nottingham and Manchester.

I have a 1 hour test on the day of the interview, but it's completely different to the Oxford language test as far as I know - at Cambridge you are given an article or extract in English and have to answer a question on it in your chosen language, and than another more general question. I'm also trying to cram in loads of grammar and things - my French teacher at school is absolutely hopeless, to the extent that we have never even spoken in French in class! I'm looking forwards to interviewing and such though, great opportunity if nothing else. And I'm so glad I didn't apply to Oxford as all their tests are on my birthday! Best of luck for Wednesday

I think I might actually prefer the sound of the Cambridge test :/ although having all that in one day would be tiring. Oh happy birthday for wednesday It is the same with both my French and German teacher, which is frustrating. Do you attend an independent school or state school?

I have two different French teachers and three German teachers, but they don't seem to talk to eachother or know what they have each taught me so their lessons are all muddled and unplanned :/ I am also the only student doing french so its really lonely! Have fun with your essay! I'm still working on grammar

Ermmmmm I can't remember, probably Wednesday as I've been in America and was only able to check my emails a few times. It was definitely Tuesday/Wednesday. Found out I had an offer from Manchester on Times Square which was pretty cool haha. Confident for the HAT? I know I'm not haha. Just want to hear from Warwick+Leeds!!

There were three of us at the beginning of year 12, one dropped out at the end of last year and another dropped it this year leaving me alone And in German there are only three of us... atleast it means a smaller student:teacher ratio I guess!
