    I got the 'excluding maths'. I only just realised, I assumed it meant I couldn't get my A* in maths but its just discounted by the looks of it. I am doing 4 A levels, It seems a little odd as my 4th is computing and not really related.

    Why would they not just give me A*AAA instead? Weird or what.
    MathBoy is doing 4 A2s - Maths, Further, Physics and Latin. What does Latin have to do with Maths? Nothing, but I guess the thinking is that they want you to show that you can cope with 3 A levels in a sitting - MB has done most of his Maths A2 already and will finish it in January, so would have been doing only Physics, Further Maths and STEP in the Summer without his 4th A level. Sigh...

    I will just say though - don't worry about accommodation, Downing don't sort ANYTHING until after results day (or haven't for the past few years)

    Do you know when we have to sort finance out by? I'm assuming it'll be the same for all colleges.
    Thanks.

    Colleges do it differently, they'll ask you to send forms off at different times. Just do student finance as you would for any university, and your college will write to you saying "send us x form by dd/mm/yy"... then do it!

    Well MB would still have had to do the 4th A2 as part of the offer says that you must continue with any exams that you say you are doing. I have an A*AA offer with A* in FM and As in Physics and Maths but I am also doing DT and that is not included in the offer. I am pretty sure I can't just drop it now even though it requires the most work because of the project.
    My sister had an A*AA offer last year and she had started off year 13 doing 4 A2s but before she handed in her application she had decided not to continue with FM A2 so it was not part of her application. She then did her maths A2 (3 modules) in January got her A* and carried on with just 2 A levels.
    I do think a lot of their offers this year are really 2 A* offers as if I can get A* in FM then I should be able to get it in Maths. (Btw I am only predicted A in FM)

    Yeah, me too. I'm always worried there's been a mistake and they'll say "oh, sorry, there was a mix-up" :rolleyes:
    Maybe the chemistry guys took pity on me - I didn't manage to get the door open properly on the way out. Darn those english knobs

    You're a mathmo, right? What was your offer? ^^

    Argh that would be awful.
    It's AA (I've already got an A*), and 1,2 in STEP. Which is a very good offer considering what some people on here have got. How about you?

    Hey, do you know what the protocol is on sending off exam certificates etc? The letter was a bit vague.

    It's funny how worried I was about the whole "thin letter= rejection" thing before I got my offer, but now I think that it was pointless worrying.
    This.

    The best/worst/most terrifying rumour was the "rejections are sent by second class and offers by first" one. That would be pure evil!

    Congratulations on your offer btw! And on your colourful academic info haha
