    I applied to Chester and they never sent me an acknowledgement email if that helps? Don't be worried; hopefully you'll hear soon enough!

    Course: biomedical science
    Universities: Oxford, Durham, York and bath
    GCSE grades: 7A*, 3A, 2B and distinction
    AS grades: achieved AAAB predicted a further AB
    A2 grades: achieved A*AA predicted a further A*
    Extra curricular: absolutely nothing relevant

    People just can't seem to get their head around that Oxford isn't my first choice and that I'd rather stay in school than miss lessons to go to hundreds of personal statement workshops.

    Oh cool, what do they think of the city? My dad mentioned that an area of Bristol has the highest crime rate in England which has made me a little worried, do they think it's a safe place?

    Totally relate to your last comment, just don't have time for that. Also, it costs so bloody much - so much for inclusion lol.
