    Received a Durham offer for Geography a few days ago. A fair few others applied for Geog at my school too and don't have offers yet so do not worry if so.

    Anyone heard back for English yet? Applied on the 12th October so quite a while ago - but I don't know how slow the English dept are at giving out offers :/ Thx
    Hi I applied on the 12th too and got an offer for English Lit on Thursday (5 Nov)! I'm doing the IB and am an international student - not sure if that would make a difference?

    I sent my History application 3 weeks ago and it hasn't yet been acknowledged by Durham, should I be concerned? I've received acknowledgement emails from each of my other universities.

    OMG!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!! You must be over the moon (I know I would)!!! Is Durham your first / second choice?
    I've applied for English too and I'm also doing the IB! If you don't mind me asking what were you predicted and what offer did Durham give you?

    I am! I felt so good the entire day ^_^ It's my first choice I think (I've applied to Oxford too haha) cuz I think I would choose Durham over Oxford (not sure I would enjoy the environment) but highly doubt I'd even get the Oxford offer. My PG is 42 and the offer I got was a 38 which is their standard!

    oh thank god they didn't give you a higher offer cos your prediction is high!! Did they ask for specific grades in your HL subjects? Oh and what college have you applied to?
    Hahaha I've applied to Oxford too! I'm in the exact same mindset as you, that is, I think I would choose Durham over Oxford... I love Durham so so much! After sitting the ELAT I'm not sure if I'll be called to interview...I think it brought me down.... I really hope that I've done enough for an interview! How did you find the ELAT?
    Congrats again!!

    Omg I know right the whole wanting a high PG but hoping for a lower offer thing>.< My specific grades were 666 at HL including English but that's it! I applied to Worcester for Oxford - the ELAT was ok for me not as good as I wanted it to be but probably not too bad (I hope).
    Are you in the UK? I'm deciding whether or not it's worth the airfare to go to the UK for the interview when I might not even want the offer >.<

    No. I live in England, did GCSEs, did AS levels and am doing A2s. So no I am a standard UK applicant so yeah kinda surprising to get an offer so quick but as I said, many don't.

    Ahh Worcester is nice! Which Durham college have you chosen?
    Im from an international school in Athens, Greece. What about you?
    I would go to the UK if I was invited for an interview. The flights will be so expensive cos they'll notify us at the last minute!!

    Where else have you applied to? Congrats on your Durham offer again!! x

    I really hope that's true, I'm an international applicant and Durham's probably my first choice (stuck between Durham and Exeter right now, I'm visiting Exeter next month) so hearing back from them soon would be so relieving!
