    1. PPE
    2. Merton College (didn't really think about it, was quite spontaneous - now I wish I would have thought about it more, but yeah. Had never been to Oxford before the interviews last year..)
    3. Currently trying to decide between St. John's, Lincoln and Univ which I all visited and liked :-)
    4. I am going to go to uni in my home country and start Politics & Econ here while reapplying - for several reasons I can't really do a gap year and I am also trying to be on the safe side.. Though I may also change to the UK if I get into another good uni, as I want to do PPE much more than P&E and I figured that I am young enough, finishing school at 17 :-)
    If you don't mind, what did you get in the TSA the first time round?

    64.3 I think
    Quite unfortunate though, I did a lot better while practising.. But I also know people who got rejected with 70+ so yeah.. Probably there are also people who got in with the exact the same score as me.

    1. Philosophy and French
    2. Applied for English and French at Brasenose. On reflection, that was a bad decision...was totally overwhelmed by all the colleges at the open day, so basically shut my eyes and pointed at the list
    3. Lincoln this year! Wanted Univ but they don't offer my course; Lincoln is essentially Univ but smaller haha
    4. Working in France as an au pair because French, hopefully won't completely forget how to speak it in the interview this time... plus A level Further Maths if I can fit it in. How are people prepping for the MLAT philosophy bit?! Just...think deep stuff and write about it...?

    Hey!

    To anyone, who is reapplying while at another university: how did you put your current institution down in the education section of UCAS? I tried to enter my current university as another centre, but it wouldn't allow me to select a graduation date past 2017.

    Hi!

    Just wondering if anyone could help me out here. On UCAS apply, UCAS seems to have assigned me a new UCAS ID however when they emailed me the track details they have used the UCAS ID from last year. As I had already booked for the BMAT way before I sent off my application I had given the open centre the UCAS ID that apply gave me initially and now I am a little stuck as to what I am supposed to do :confused: Will the results still be communicated correctly to the universities or do I need to ask the centre to change my UCAS ID :confused::confused: Can the two ID's be possibly linked?
