    Are you doing a foundation year? I know someone who needs a distinction because there's is a different type of course to a normal foundation.

    That must feel terrible... I called the office this morning, just before I had my results and was told that it should take no less than a week to publish rest of the results. Slade is known to consider their applicants extremely carefully. Therefore, it will take time.

    I have received my offer this afternoon. I really hope you receive something positive.

    A lot of people have already been rejected as well, it's not offers then rejections necessarily. Plus bare in mind with art schools it's about whether you're right for that place, not necessarily whether you are good enough to get in. I got an offer from the Slade and didn't even get an interview at the Ruskin, I spoke to someone who got into the Ruskin but was rejected by the Slade. I know people who got into Goldsmiths without an so much as an interview at the Slade and met someone at the Slade who got rejected by Goldsmiths. Being rejected by any of those art schools doesn't mean that you won't be a fantastic artist, it's just you didn't fit into the class that they were trying to put together that year. I spoke to someone who works at the Slade a few years ago and she said that it a lot depends on the mix of students that they are looking at, they don't want 40 painters, or sculptors, or performers, they want a few of each, and they want people that they think will work well together. It might be the case that someone who gets rejected this year might have been accepted the year before or the year after.

    Don't give up hope that you might get an offer, and if you don't then don't feel like you are any less capable of an artist.

    I only applied to Goldsmith - which rejected me , but i didn't really like them anyway as they were cocky like -"oooh you probably applied to ucl too yada yada"

    also applied for a couple of foundation courses, so if i don't get in this year, i can reapply next year.

    Then you have nothing to worry about! To get an interview at the Slade and Goldsmiths while being at school is an amazing achievement in itself. You have to remember that you were competing against people who had just been studying art for a year who were a year older than you as well. Very few people get interviews at places like that from school. I applied to the Slade from 6th form and got rejected straight away. You honestly have nothing to worry about, you have such a good chance next year if you have already made it that far! Plus you will grow and learn so much more having done a foundation.
