    I have no idea, I've heard many stories about students who meet or exceed their requirements being rejected. I'm not sure what it is, as I've been told by many that my PS is also very strong. But I've asked for feedback to find out.

    So I'm on a gap year and just sent off my application for neuroscience. I know this might sound like a stupid question, but it is possible that I could be rejected due to my personal statement. I made a grammar mistake which after proof reading myself and getting my family to read over it somehow didnt notice and the personal statement itself isnt the most amazing piece of writing reading it over it now. I already have the grades, well exceeded in fact what they are asking for. I'm quite the paranoid individual as you can see and was just looking for some reassurance.

    Hey best of luck with your application! Received my psych offer I think that it really depends on when you submit your UCAS (despite them saying equal consideration)

    Don't panic too much - it depends on what kind of mistake it was. If it was a glaringly obvious mistake, it wouldn't do you many favours, but considering that both you and your family missed it, it sounds like it was very small, like missing a full stop or something. And, unis get thousands of applications every year - whilst they read our PS, it's highly unlikely they're going to be scouring them for tiny mistakes (unless you apply for English, in which case mistakes really aren't good, but you haven't so that's not an issue), so I really wouldn't worry about it!! If you've met and exceeded the grades like you said, I seriously doubt one grammar mistake is going to harm your application!!

    What did you get at AS and what are your A2 predictions?
    Where else have you applied? What subjects are you studying?

    Have you received any interviews so far?

    I'm predicted A*AC (AAB average) so I doubting whether I'll get an offer from KCL.

    Good luck! Hopefully not all departments focus so much on GCSEs and tbh your GCSEs aren't bad at all. I'm a bit worried that since I didn't get Kings, I don't stand a chance with UCL, LSE or Cambridge. But all I can do is wait and see.

    I got a B in maths and Physics and a C in economcis. My current predictions are AAB, but that could change to AAA some time this week before my application is sent hopefully. If i get the AAA ill be applying to kings queen mary and imperial.
    Im currently studying Maths, physics and Economics.
    I havent received any interviews, Ive stil got to send it off lol

    Ps, are you predicted the a* and a in maths and physics?

    I'm predicted A* in Maths, A in Physics, C in History (not resitting).

    Imperial asks for A*A*A which is beyond me since I'm not resitting history.
    I take it you want to stay in london?
    Oh, I thought I was late when I sent off my application early November.
