    Thanks
    I applied for geology and related courses last year, my offers were:

    University of Liverpool
    BSc Geology and Physical Geography
    ABB

    Keele University
    BSc Geology (major) with Physical Geography (minor)
    BBB/ABC with B in Geography A Level

    I also applied to these, they are less relevant but I'll mention them anyway:

    University of Portsmouth
    BSc Geological Hazards
    280 UCAS points with 180 points from Geology and Geography A Level

    Coventry University
    BSc Geography and Natural Hazards
    BBB (this was later changed to unconditional but I'd already declined it)

    I'm currently on a gap year (I decided I wasn't ready for uni yet and changed my mind about my firm choice), and I am planning to apply again this year to the University of Hull for their BSc Geology or BSc Geology with Physical Geography course.

    I hope this was useful

    It does, TSR has a section called UniversityConnect where you can add the details of your application in a centralised place.

    Wow, just saw this thread Lemonpopsicle. We need more Geologists, we seem to be so few on the ground.
    Like I said in that thread on the bham forum I got an offer from Royal Holloway for ABB, but I know of two other people getting Geology offers;
    one person in my school has 2 offers so far, for bristol and leeds,
    The other has an offer for Leeds.
    Keep in mind that both these people are oxbridge applicants and applied in early September. However, one of them told me today that even though he applied to manchester a while ago for the Earth Sciences they haven't even acknowledged his application yet. He's also applied to bham as well, and has heard nothing.
    I think Bristol, Leeds and RH are the ones who are doing the early offers this year from what I can see. With the other ones I wouldn't worry so much. My school tells us only worry if you haven't heard back by March. Liverpool acknowledged my application (as did Birmingham) but it seems like they could take a while. A friend of mine today got an offer from Liverpool from accounting, but then again that's not Geology so probably seems irrelevant.
    Well done you two guys that have offers!

    Ummm.... I think one of the Leeds offers for the Msci was A*AA, I'm pretty certain about that.
    The Bristol and Leeds offers for the other person in my school, I honestly couldn't tell you. Sorry about that. I've never really looked at Bristol, do their offers vary like UCL's?

    Bristol give out contextual offers depending on your school or college, but apart from that I think it's usually AAA

    Liverpool's course looks great! I didn't find out about it until after I applied but their module selection looks really interesting.

    Is Durham your top choice? My son is also going to be applying to uni's with a year abroad, FYI Durham don't list one but a year abroad is also possible there :-)
