    Does anyone know, does everyone who meets the entry requirements for Sheffield automatically get asked for a portfolio? Or is it only if they pass you through after seeing references and the personal statement

    I was told Sheffield are only giving portfolio assessments to those with grades higher than ABB, I believe everyone with grades higher will get a portfolio assessment

    btw this is my portfolio for LSBU. I hope that at least they will get me, since I'll probably get rejected by schools such as UCL, Newcastle or Brookes LOL

    Hello, so I received a portfolio request from Kent today, but I have no idea like around how many images to put? So I'm wondering if anyone who has done the portfo for Kent knows anything about it?😬 Plus, does anyone have any good and easy website recommendation that I should put my work on as the link to the portfolio? They didn't seem to have specified any particular link._.

    They'll understand that you've taken a foundation though and will take that into consideration so I wouldn't worry as long as you've got some good bits and development to put in your portfolio

    I'm heavily relying on that. Otherwise it's another gap year and off to engineering school :argh: I didn't think it was going to be this heavily based on art stuff, otherwise I would have started taking art a long time ago...

    I think it should be fine!

    I take SL Maths, Art, Spanish B and HL Physics, English LangLit, Geography.

    They gave me an offer for 36 overall (including core), 6 in HL Physics, 6 in another HL subject, and 7 in SL Art. It's the most specific uni offer I've had so far!!

    They took about 2 months - I applied in late Sep and got it on 25th Nov.
    The overall offer is (by quite far) lower than my overall predicted, but in terms of their specific subject requirements, my predicted is equivalent or one higher.
    I guess they put lots of emphasis on the subjects they like/subjects explicitly linking to architecture, and care much less about others... :P

    Unconditional from Coventry. Today just got an unconditional from Oxford Brookes . Conditional from Westminister. Interview on 15/01 with kingston and on 09/02 interview with UCL
    Wow! Congrats zzdevzz! I sent my application off in Nov and received conditional offer from Manchester, NewCastle, Oxford Brookes and Kent. Right now I'm still waiting for UCL. I have posted my task back to UCL around the end of December, but still haven't heard anything back from them yet T^T How long did it take UCL to response you?

    in their task e mail it said that all interviews would have taken place in dec, february and march, so I think theres plenty of time for them to answer you back, you shouldn't be worrying, congrats for your other offers guys!

    I've applied with AA and I'm doing two more A-Levels this year, predicted AA again. I've got two offers so far, from Newcastle and Manchester, they're both for just one more A in any subject
