    york have yet to send me an invite... its been 3-4 weeks now :confused:
    Really? :confused: Well, in the email it says this: "At this stage in the admissions system we only consider applicants who, on the basis of the information on their UCAS forms, definitely appear to be capable of making a success of a degree course. I am pleased to say you come in this category..." etc. So perhaps they're just looking at yours later for one reason or another?

    I'm a post A-level applicant with A*AAabc in maths chem bio, and further maths, english lit, and critical thinking AS respectively.

    I thought that would be enough

    I would've thought so too. Rather odd. I guess all you can do is wait, though! Good luck, I'm sure you'll be fine with those grades.

    Congrats on the offers.

    I applied to Somerville Oxford (interview), Imperial (interview), Warwick (offer), Bristol (interview) and Durham who I haven't heard back from.

    When's your Imperial interview??

    Thanks, you too!

    That's the date mine is too :P

    I'll attend regardless on the off chance I could get an AAA offer.

    I don't really know if I'd wanna go there. And if I got an offer from Oxford that'd obviously be my firm and then I wouldn't want AAA as an insurance

    It'd be silly to not even go to the interview though, you may as well, you'd have nothing to lose.
    And what's wrong with AAA as an insurance??

    I'd lose time and it would still be stressful, when I would already know I wouldn't be going there.
    Well having only learnt half of my A2 content so far, I don't feel confident enough on getting AAA and I wanna make sure I go to uni! I'd feel much more comfortable having AAB as my insurance Just in case I bomb bio!

    I suppose. I think I'd insure at AAA anyway and just take the risk, would certainly make results day more "exciting". What prep have you done for Oxford? I'm panicking.

    How would it make results day more exciting? Because you'd be less certain you've gotten into uni? :lol:
    Not much really, had a mock interview, got two more on Tuesday. Revising AS chem, re-reading books I mentioned on my PS and reading a couple articles.
    I don't feel very prepared.
    What about you?

    Yes, it would give it an added edge. I'm just a maverick like that.

    :O
    I need to read the books I said I read on my PS. I'm screwed. I had a small mock interview and that's it.

    Ah well, que sara and all at.

    It sounds like more than it is, I still haven't finished revising AS chem and re-reading the books, so I still have a lot to do.
    I don't know what "que sara" means.
    And you may not need to revise any content, but I tend to forget everything very quickly so I'm just going over the most important topics.

    I'm going to try revising things quickly next week. Not in much detail. They aren't really looking for knowledge but more application into unusual circumstances. When are you in Oxford??
