"From 3 A levels". Using your fourth AS would make it 3.5 I'm afraid.
Damn I now hate QM. I got all excited thinking I had a low (-ish) offer and BAM! No I don't... :huff:

I feel your pain, makes your fourth AS pretty much a total waste to be honest.

I just got the same offer for history, and was dead excited coz it sounded like a low offer!
Still, QM is my top choice so I'm going to accept and will hopefully see y'all there in September

I got an offer last night for Law! Although I don't know the exact conditions... I suspect it will be AAA, but i'm hoping it will be "360 UCAS points" so I can get A*AB or something ^^. I only got an update from UCAS, no email or anything. Anyone from Law know their conditions? Thanks and giood luck all!

Just got an email inviting me to interview. Really, really nervous but it's not for 3 weeks yet :afraid: It's for english, could anyone who has already been through this please share what questions you were asked etc. It also says that I might have to look at a text (previously unseen) and comment on it :eek::eek: Please, please help! Queen Mary's is my FAVOURITE uni and I'm terrified I'm going to mess this up

Um...my friend had an interview at QM for English...I never heard anything about an unseen text though. She told me that they ask about books you've read, go into detail about one, question things on your application and why you want to study at QM. It's very informal - they basically just go off from your answers.

Ah ok, thanks

What kind of questions do you get asked (if you don't mind me asking) ? Can you give me some examples?
It is unlikely that you'll be asked to look at a previously unseen text. Very few lecturers choose to do that, and normally the joint honours students don't get them.

Even if you did, the interview is very light hearted and quite informal. Expect to answer "Why English & History?" "Why Queen Mary?" and "Why London?". Be well versed in your personal statement and be prepared to talk about anything you mentioned in it.

Other than that the day will be fine. I will be about on the day (though helping out with the Drama side of things) and can assure you it is really relaxed and friendly.

If you have any other questions about English, or QM in general let me know and I'll answer them for you.
