    Just firmed City and put Anglia Ruskin as insurance!

    Just a quick question though: say if I put an AS module as pending on my ucas form but I then decide I don't want to resit it anymore is that still possible? Thanks

    Hey guys. Just got an email from Cardiff (desired first choice) I don't have an offer after all. They must have sent me my letter by mistake I don't really know what to do. The admissions person was so blunt. She just said 'oh, just looked at your application and were still making a decision' but I had my letter
    Any ideas on what to do about it?
    I was thinking of emailing Richard Earlams directly instead of the general admissions office. Thoughts?

    Not as far as I'm aware.
    They haven't replied to me yet.

    I reckon they're waiting until AFTER THE DEADLINE (I keep repeating this but no-one seems to listen) before replying. They're like Ulster in that respect.
    Offers should begin to come in next week.

    Ahh well done!!!!
    maybe all of ours got blocked so when i said mine was they updated everyones??
    i dno what the hell happened but i think it was the generall admisssions' fault.
    coz as far as the optom dept knew they made me an offer
    If it was anywhere else i probably would have let it go, but this is my first choice so
    Anyway
    my offer is on track now AAA Bio Maths Photography.
    well done again

    Just got my third offer from Cardiff - AAA

    Did anyone else get an offer without an interview? I was under the impression that they always interview for optom

    I got an offer same-day from Anglia and I know there's a few other people who do.
    I'm pretty sure there's some city offers floating around too, but I didn't apply there so I don't know.

    Shift Dress with Blazer
    People were quite casual though.
    like black skinny jeans with a nice top
    although some in suits.
    just be comfortable really?
