    Ah I picked Oxford over Cambridge, as I liked the vibe of the city more!
    You made the right choice!! (probably)
    No but seriously Oxford is fantastic and such a nice place to live in + the student discounts are ridiculous.

    has anybody received offers for Law yet?
    I've applied for Law with French at Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield... and Oxford. I know somebody who received an offer from Liverpool for law within few days of sending his offer yet i haven't even received an acknowledgement email and sent it in before him. I was surprised a law department handed out offers so quickly, his PS must have been really good.
    Regardless of which course you've applied for, has anybody heard back or got a generic email from any of these unis yet? Nervous

    Remember this is only a small number of people who've sent in thier forms in already compaired to what it will be in total. The fact you've got yourself to the point where it's the teachers your waiting for shows your motivated, loads of people are still wrtiting their pr still and pondering what to apply for.
    Yeah but the deadline for me is next Saturday which is 6 days away. HOWEVER I don't feel comfortable waiting until Thursday/Friday.

    This is exactly me. They actually have my references together but they're still not doing anything it's really frustrating me
    Wow you need to moan at your head of year or something, I'd complain the minute I get to school tomorrow lol.

    But if I'm honest they're all my dream unis so I'm at that awkward stage where I don't know what to do.

    Same here. Is it that hard to write the references for the 10/12 or so people who are doing early entry over 3 weeks? ffs
    It really isn't lol and they've had since July to do it.

    It's crazy that some of your sixth forms/colleges don't sort out the references sooner? My teachers at college wrote them back in July but my referee collated them all together from September to now to avoid us stressing out even more. Hope your teachers' sort it out soon for you guys seeing as you're already ready to send it.

    I'm not applying for law but haven't heard anything back from Oxford either! I only sent my application away on Friday but already have the welcome email from Edinburgh- on Friday and St Andrews yesterday. I think some take longer than others/don't send them out at all

    Yeah I'm in the same situation as you by needing to get it off by Saturday. Then even after we send it, we have the rather lengthy SAQ to do, which takes away time for schoolwork or pre-interview assessment stuff. I want it done by Wednesday latest!

    If only school was organised to get my reference together so I could have applied last Wednesday...

    Just need some motivation because right now I'm literally working towards nothing, so there is no incentive to work.
    I'm in the same position. Submitted my side. Looked on UCAS and says Referee has done his side and approved my application. School have now approved his reference, just haven't sent it off!!!

    Oxford, LSE, Warwick and then St. Andrews for history and economics! Edinburgh is my last choice😬 But my personal statement is a bit of mess with me talking about all 3 subjects so I'm really just hoping someone will give me an offer!

    That's the stage I'm at, mainly because my personal statement feels so focused on my subject (sounds stupid but worried that universities other than cambridge will feel put out as i only have one sentence about my instrument and playing in a band which then also links back to my course choice). The teacher writing my reference advised this as he said he would mention all the skills I have gained through my work experience and all my other non academic extra curriculars, but still it is stressing me out a bit!

    That's literally me.. I don't have that 75/25 split.. I mention debating/model un in my introduction and then conclusion but then nothing about any other school roles/competitions! I hope my reference includes those things lol.

    I've heard from a bunch of people that unis don't really like head boys/head girls?? And don't like that being mentioned in the application? No idea if this is true but the boy from my school last year had all A band 1s in nat 5 and higher applied for law at Oxford and didn't even get an interview...

    Thank God, mines more like a 98%/2% split, it's so hard having enough space when you're talking about more than one subject
