    Got an offer for Biomed so overwhelmed! Now choosing between Durham and Bristol. I applied to Hild and Bede, anyone have information on this college? And what's Durham like? I've never been, but I will be attending an open day. Also, do the colleges have their own libraries?

    -If anyone's doing Biomed at Durham I would really appreciate any info you have on the course e.g. teaching style, whether or not you enjoy it etc

    I just got an offer for Economics, which I was really surprised about because I'm year 14 haha, I haven't applied to a college though. My only hesitation is that Durham is known to not have a great nightlife and the work load is heavy, any opinions on this?
    Congrats on your offer! Are you resitting any exams by any chance? Also, may I ask when you applied?

    Got my offer for Law today!! I'm so happy and so relieved! Also, has anyone else's offer been reduced to AAA? I've applied to St Mary's so fingers crossed that's where I'm allocated.

    Hi, i'm hoping to apply next year, so wondering what sort of grades you have. What'd you get in GCSEs and AS? and what sort of extra curriculars did you put in your ps statement? Thankyou and congratulations

    Hi! I've got 6A*s and 6As at GCSE and AAAB AS (and a score of 29 on the LNAT) The most law-related extra curriculars I wrote about were my school debate club, a mock trial and going to a magistrates court to observe solicitors. I actually didn't do any actual 'work-experience' but I'd definitely recommend looking into it! Thank you and the best of luck to you next year!

    Has anyone got an opinion on Durham vs St Andrews?
    I think if I had to choose just based in the uni itself, I'd go for Durham, but I like the flexibility of the St Andrews degree + it would be free as I'm from the EU... Very torn :/

    I have offers from both St Andrews and Durham and can't decide between them both! I like the flexibility of St Andrews degree but it is a year longer..

    I actually prefer that it's longer + you come out with a masters not a bachelors! I'm torn though because I like the college system in Durham and it's the top uni for English Literature... Difficult haha :/
