    Oh wow that's great! I'm waiting on an offer from neuroscience at the moment. I visited a few days ago, spoke to the staff and fell in love with the place so now I'm super nervous. Where are you from?
    Im from Aberdeen, how about you? Ive never even been to St Andrews so I need to have a visit 😨 i thought they would reject me for sure - i just put them down as an extra choice and thought notjing would come of it 😂

    I'm from Spain! I was just wondering because I thought they might be giving out offers in Scotland first.
    Go to St. Andrews! I was honestly not expecting it to be so nice. I put it down as an extra choice too but I thought I wouldn't want to go because everyone had told me about how small it was and I've always pictured myself going to a city university. But now I've been it's the one I've liked the most! The problem is I didn't realise how selective they were and I'm super nervous about it.
    The people in the department are lovely, I got along well with them and hopefully they saw how enthusiastic I was so fingers crossed! :crossedf:

    Yaay! I'm from Malaga, yourself? I'll end up doing a lot of biochem too since that's basically what neuroscience is Where else have you applied to? I don't want to big it up too much but I thought it was lovely, are you going to an open day?

    I'm thinking St. Andrews will be my first choice followed by Dundee. I think the which uni stats says Edinburgh is first in Scotland for economics followed by St. Andrews. Depends what you'd prefer((:
    They're both so good. Different tables say different things so I find it rather confusing because that's what I have applied for (economics) but I'm starting to think that both universities are more so the same

    I live in Coruña! I've got offers from Durham and Glasgow, and I have yet to hear from Edinburgh and St Andrews. You? Unfortunately I can't make it to the open day but I will be going to the Durham one next month so I'm going to visit St Andrews and Edinburgh while I'm there ☺️

    I have visited Edinburgh too but not St Andrews. I'm planning to go in March because I haven't seen the economics department for St Andrews or the actually campus itself. I've been reading online too for St Andrews but obviously everyone has their own opinion so I'm just going to go with which university gives me a better feeling
    How did you like Edinburgh?

    I found it very hard to get around as everything is spread out. I live in like a tiny village so I think that's why I'm kinda veering towards going to a smaller uni. I think I'm going to another St. Andrews open day as well, not sure what date tho

    Aw right, that makes sense tbf. All the best to you! I've always lived in big cities but I think I'd be able to adjust to a smaller village. Hope you like it!! I'm going on the 9th March

    According to this: http://university.which.co.uk/univer...000-g100-70456
    75% of applicants receive offers so with the grades you got id be surprised if you did not get one but best of luck anyway.

    I got an offer straight to second year chemistry. I don't have the best academic background this genuinely got me thinking the University considers all aspects. I only have 2A's at GCSEs and my AS I got ABBB n I retook my AS year which all doesn't sound great. But I have only been improving so they must have taken that in to account. Honestly was shocked.
