I got an offer from stephenson too yesterday, and I don't think it will be isolated because there will be other student there all the time and also there is thornaby train station ten mins away and a free bus to Durham uni as well
That's a very good point, what course have you got into?

Really? I went for the physics summer school and my room was alright, but maybe that's because I had an ensuite and that's all matters...

You had an ensuite? So lucky! Well I suppose that if I go I should get an ensuite

Yup! I didn't expect I would be assigned to one which was a nice shock - they're pretty nice rooms with a fair bit of space

Yeah I've done my choices! Unfortunately my firm want more than my insurance but oh well (Durham reduced my offer from A*AA to ABB after I did supported progression, and Lancaster want AAB!) :') I hope I get the grades, the thought makes me il ahahah. I'm so so excited for Johns, I wish there was a fb group or something for us all to chat and get to know each other! Yeah, I live like an hour and a half away. Summer isn't that bad at all, it was really really hot this year. Winter can be pretty cold though, not going to lie, it was -5 where I am in Cumbria last month
Damn...I don't handle the cold very well.I might need to invest in some thermals!.

Physics I'm not sure, I'll probably end up firming it over Manchester, and choose York as my insurance

How about you?


Posted from TSR Mobile
It's between Bath and Durham for my firm...I'll be visiting both soon as I didn't go to the pre- application open days last year.I don't know what I will put for my insurance!.What did you like about york?. I'm interested because when I went I didn't really like it , but some of my friends liked it and I've heard that various people have liked it as well.

I've heard that Bath is quite a beautiful place, never visited the place or the uni - haha you could always flip a coin to decide! I like that it's 'collegiate', plus I think it's a pretty place in general and the course isn't that bad there

Good food can really make the difference! What else can you remember about the rooms?



Meh I don't think it's too bad actually, as long as you participate in societies and things! What subject will you be studying?



Oh cool, for what subjects?




I guess I'll see for myself when I go to the open day

Subjects were classics and I think the other one applied for English.
They wanted a bailey college and they're brother and sister and both got in together which is nice.

Are college allocations still dribbling through or did they all arrive in a batch on Monday night?

I'd imagine they're still coming through. I got my allocation email yesterday and one of my friends hasn't received his allocation yet, even though he got his offer in November and I got mine on Friday last week.

Congratulations!!! Yay for BA Geography! 😊

Also, do you think that if we find out that we prefer the more biological/chemistry or environment-based topics in the course, we would switch to BSc Geography instead?
