    Got offers from Leeds, Birmingham, Nottingham and Sheffield -- Waiting on Newcastle, is anyone firming/insuring Leeds or Birmingham?
    I'll be firming Leeds once my last two offers come through ((:

    I'm most likely firming Birmingham! Had offers from Birmingham, Leeds, Surrey and Royal Holloway (Unconditional) and just awaiting Newcastle... getting quite impatient!

    Me too! Same day, same college! What did you think?
    Mine was very challenging. They asked so many questions which I didn't have a clue how to answer

    Me too! Some of the questions were really hard :/. I came out just feeling really defeated :P. I also had no "traditional" questions, they seemed really focused on the article as well as on one point from my personal statement.

    They both seemed really nice though, so that was good. I also had to stay the night from Monday to Tuesday, so I got to spend a few hours talking to the students there about King's, so that was quite informative and fun as well.

    Yeap, same here- it was all about the study. I really liked them, though. The woman seemed very cool while the man was kinda scholastic. At what time was your interview? I saw a girl coming out of the interview room and she looked defeated

    Hahaha, my pre-interview reading was at 10.00, and then the interview at 10.30; so I finished around 11.00. What about you?

    Yeah , I think most of the questions I couldn't answer were from the man :P

    What are your other choices? Queen Mary gave me a conditional offer, but haven't heard from the other colleges yet. You?

    Well apart from Cambridge I just applied to Scotland; so Glasgow, St. Andrews, Edinburgh and Strathclyde as my backup backup .

    I've got a conditional offer from Glasgow so far (but it requires a 7 in SL maths so we'll see how that goes) but nothing more from the others :P.
