    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]That's cool! I love Bath but sadly it doesn't do any of the degrees I'm interested in. Mine go from A*AA (Cambridge and UCL) to ABB (Liverpool and UCL's second degree). The odd thing is, there's so much overlap between the two UCL degrees! Oxford is AAA, which are my target grades right now, but hopefully I can get at least one A* . . . When do your exams start? And have you had a good half term?[/COLOR]
    Swansea do Egyptology too. Their grades are BBB, I think.

    I know this thread is a few months old, but with the grades you have you will get offers. I got mostly B's at GCSE and I got ABE (resitting the E) at AS-Level but still got an offer off Liverpool to do Egyptology. I also only applied to 3 universities but it was fine as I got all of my offers, however I did turn down Liverpool (and there are times I question why :P) but I applied to Birmingham to Ancient History and Archaeology (which I've firmed) with the plan to go on to do a Egyptology post-grad at Liverpool instead, so you could always go down that route if your current plan doesn't work out but It will as you've done a lot better than me grades wise so don't worry only apply to 3 as there's no point wasting their time and yours.

    How many people are studying Egyptology in your year at Liverpool? Is it a big course? Do you get a lot of support?

    There's about 18-20 of us doing core Egyptology (there was about 24 of us in 1st Year), then on some modules there's a lot more, for example in my First Year, there was about 50-60 people doing the Intro to Ancient Egypt module, and this year in the Death in Ancient Egypt module, there's about 21 of us, whereas in some of my hieroglyph and Coptic classes,there's only been 7 of us, so it mixes up a bit, depending on whether you take the Language or Archaeology pathway in 2nd Year but I know they said our year is one of the largest groups they've had.

    Yes we do get a lot of support, you are assigned an academic advisor (who is just one of your lecturers) each year who you have to meet with twice a semester, and you can arrange to see them whenever you like as well; and all the lecturers always say you can email them if you need help.

    And just to add, it is THE best course ever haha!

    Hope this helps
