Thank you punctuation - i have had an email confirmation but apparently another email has been sent out to some applicants. It doesn't seem like anyone applying for psych has received the email though. Jessicar2 - I applied to Loughborough at the beginning of November and I received an offer three weeks ago Don't worry if you haven't received an offer yet from them because I have a friend who is predicted above 40 points in the IB and she is still waiting for her offer and I have no doubt that she will get it. What's your first choice?

There aren't any major differences, except the additional subjects you'll choose to study

i'm applying for the psychological practice MSci, i haven't heard anything either... except for an email asking me to confirm what my 1st and 2nd placement preferences were... i'm not sure if everyone who applied got sent it, i was just naughty and didn't put it in my PS (I was concerned it would make my other choices aware of where i was applying, so my teachers advised me to leave it out.... turned out not to be a big deal though =D glad i didn't waste the PS characters now )

Let me know if you hear anything XD
Not heard anything yet.. I emailed them and realised you don't find out until January! Haha.. didn't read the info properly! Only 9 places or something aren't there!? Crazy...But apparently if you don't get a place on the MSci and reach their academic requirements you'll get an offer for the BSc anyways

As far as I know, the BSc is three years and you start in the second year of the forth year. The MA is the four year course but not a proper masters as Scottish students can start at 17

Hi!
I have a quick question.. I applied to do Psychology at Royal Holloway. I got an offer with 5 days of sending off my application, with the offer of AAB, but my predicted grades are ABD (in psychology, biology and physics, respectively). I don't understand why they would give me an offer that is WAAAAAY above my predicted grades. I'm going to try really hard to get those grades, but I find physics so difficult and I don't know if it's realistic. What are my chances of getting in? Why did they offer me such high grades? :confused:

thats what the universities standard offer is on their website, they will only in very very very very very rare circumstances give grades lower than those, and that is normally in the case of an applicant being truly exceptional.

I really really really don't mean to sound harsh, but why did you think you would get a grade requirement lower than those stated on the website? Realistically, I think you are quite lucky to get an offer at all with your predictions being so low compared to there standard offer. Tbh, they MIGHT let you in if you got ABB, although that depends on the numbers of firm-ers that meet their offer and the number of people who used it as their issuance and missed their firm, so it would depend on space as to whether they could let someone in who has just missed the grades.
