    I'm applying for Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool too!
    Whoo, our choices are pretty similar then! What are your other two if you don't mind me asking? I'm going to visit Leeds tomorrow, but I know the city quite well, so I'm sure that I will like it

    Thank you I've applied for Biology/Biological sciences with predicted grades of AAA, and i didn't take any AS exams but my gcse's are all A*/A grades, i didn't think my personal statement was that special but my head of sixth thought it was good and it has to be since Bristol offered me BBB!

    Ahhh hey guys! Congrats to everyone getting offers, it's incredible that you've heard back so soon, you must all be fab! I've finalised my application but it hasn't been sent off by the school yet.

    Course: Linguistics
    Grades: 10A*s at GCSE, 4As at AS (93% average), 3A* predicted
    Universities: Cambridge (Clare College) eek, Edinburgh, York, UCL, Newcastle

    I adore the Cambridge college that I'm applying to but it gets so many applicants and gives so few offers so I'm not holding out hopes of getting in. I love Edinburgh and would DIE if I got in! York is so pretty and I definitely wouldn't mind going there, although the course isn't as exciting as Camb and Edinburgh. I'm a bit nervous about applying to London unis but UCL is so good for my course! And Newcastle... well, my friend's applying there so I thought I might as well have it as my fifth choice!

    Peterhouse for Cambridge and University for Durham. I didn't really know which one to apply to for Durham so I picked the most oversubscribed one where I'll probably get pooled.

    Ahhh cool! Peterhouse is so nice and being the oldest college makes it steeped in history. And the firs year accommodation is probably the nicest in Cambridge. Search 'St Peter's Terrace, Peterhouse' in Google and you'll understand why! It's even been refurbished!

    University college is also a great choice, although yes a little risky. I considered it but decided to stick with something safer because I don't want to end up at a college I don't like through reallocation and most people don't even stay at the castle!

    I'm applying Econ at Cambs, UCL (with year abroad), LSE, Bristol and KCL. I sent my application but my reference hasn't been added yet so the universities haven't got it yet.

    I'm applying to Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, Stirling and Strathclyde for economics and international relations, and I sent my application last tuesday. So far I've got emails from Dundee and Aberdeen but no offers yet I'm so anxious because this is all so strange for me, I'm from Finland and none of my teachers or friends had even heard about UCAS before I told them I've just been reading this forum in order to get some tips haha

    Heyyy I'm from Finland as well!! Although I live in France but anyways i'm Finnish I'm applying for Natural Sciences at Cambridge and then Physics & Maths at UCL, Exeter, Birmingham and Bristol. Nice to find other finns here haha

    I submitted my application on tuesday, got emails from all my unis saying they received it and are considering it. In addition UCL asked for further info about some qualifications which is probably a good sign idk don't want to read too much into it ..

    I visited during Open Day last summer and I really liked the place. I saw St Peter's Terrace, it looks like it was lifted out of Kensington and plopped down in Cambridge.

    I'm not sure how I would rank my choices (assuming I get the offers). Currently, I think I would pick Warwick over Durham because I like the course more; however, I prefer Durham's location. I almost hope I get pooled to a Durham college I don't like so I don't have to make the decision.

    The only acknowledgement email I've received so far is from UCL, to say my application is being considered. The suspense is killing me, constantly refreshing my email inbox.
    I know how you feel. I've only received two acknowledgements and I got an offer yesterday from a university that didn't even send me an acknowledgment. The others may be looking but haven't sent an acknowledgemnt. I had to wait 3 weeks so I'm sure you'll hear soon. As soon as you get that first offer you'll be so much more relaxed!

    Caius, wbu? Well Economics is the most competitive degree so you'd expect a lot, but there still seems like a lot more applicants on here than for other subjects. Idk why.
