Thank you! Oh my god that was such a quick offer, WELL DONE THOUGH! and good luck with everything else! How's prep for the HAT going? x
Universities can be very fast when they want to be! UEA sent me an acknowledgement the day after I sent my application and then an offer less than a week later :eek:

urgrgtf HAT prep, erm, I think I should revise AS history, but I haven't, I have no idea what to write for the essay section, since I don't think I know my A2 modules in enough detail yet, oh and I did a mock and flopped Q1 I don't even know how, I just completely missed the point! I'm going to keep reading and practising though - you?

GOOD LUCK to you too! (where else are you applying?)

Haha.. I just saw that now *******s!

Just like Paul A. Samuelson said: 'In principle, mathematics cannot be worse than prose in economic theory; in principle, it certainly cannot be better than prose. For deepest logic- the two media are strictly identical.'
can. tell that to paul.

I applied last week to Oxford for their Economics & Management course.
In the acknowledgement mail they said that I would get a more detailed and precise answer from my college before the end of October....does that mean they'll let me know by then whether I'm getting an interview or not?

No, I'm sure the TSA is early November and you have to sit that first. They let you know in late November.

That makes two of us! I'm applying for History & Politics and attempted a practice HAT today. Let's just say it didn't go too well (It was my first day of preparation though, otherwise I'd REALLY be worried.)

I was told that the best thing to do is practice and hope
Me too! which college? and where else are you applying?

You should receive more information regarding the entrance exam from the college you applied, not a verdict on your overall application.

This is correct: TSA is November 2nd, interview invitations (I presume) you're told about mid-late November.

I figured all or nothing: if I chose any insurance-y choices I just wouldn't want to go, so why not go all out, eh.

I have a question for you: do you know what standard of German is required to study in Germany? Do you need a B2/C1 diploma like in France - or do they ask for C2?

C1, I believe, as one boy when I was in SHA (I passed B2 when I was there) attempted C1 because he wanted to study in the Hamburg Hochschule (can't remember what it's called). However Test DaF is also sufficient, and that is between B2 and C1 in terms of difficulty, so I could pass that this year if I needed to. B2 is harder than A Level- a private school teacher told me it was 1st/2nd year uni level but I have to take his word for it- but C1 isn't actually so bad. Poor Ludwig just wasn't used to writing about statistics :/ B2, however, is enough for Switzerland (was about to write the Schweiz! oh dear) and Austria.

Ahh excellent (my level is still sub-GCSE so I'm finding it a bit difficult to find info online). I'm thinking about options for the future and it would be nice if I could include Germany/Austria/Switzerland among the places I can do postgrad :ninja:

reminding me I need to register to sit B2 French at some stage :nooo:

Oh I'd quite like to do Spanish by the end of A2 And I'd like to do C1 in German at some point. One day I will do C2

Hi- I posted a question a couple of days ago, about changing courses- I'm really unhappy with my choice. Apparently, according to Oxford admissions, it can be done, but has to be done quickly. I would need to contact Oxford and ask to change course, and then give the personal statement/ references. Would anyone happen to know whether I would have to then contact all my other uni choices and do the same? And then, would it be to great a risk t take, in that they might all just reject me for my indecision?
Also, does anyone know of anyone who has actually done this?
Sorry for all the questions- my school is refusing- yes, refusing- to help me!:eek:

I wish I could help you!! I feel so much sympathy for you because I also applied for a course which I'm not...well... Let's just say that I am nowhere near your situation! The best thing to do is contact UCAS and the other unis to find out :/
