Wow I can't believe he was rejected by so many unis!! Even if his PS was bad…
Predicted grades: 17,5/20 on the French Bac (I think thats somewhere around A*AA/A*A*A)
LNAT: 29
I think you need something on your application that makes you stand out (I spent a year at boarding school, so as well as french qualifications I have GCSEs and AS)
What about you?
I know right! It was pretty shocking. And damn, no wonder they accepted you! I heard the FB is even harder than IB. My predicteds are 40/45 ib points with 766 at HL, (if that doesn't mean anything to you it translates to A*AA for my 3 higher level subjects) and my LNAT is 27. Well I have quite a few things that make me stand out, I won first and second place in two regional writing awards last year, and I have experience participating in mooting competitions as well as doing a 3 week internship at a law firm this summer. I've done quite a bit of charity work as well, which helped to shape my personal statement alot since it was based around the theme of justice

PS: I'm terribly sorry if I sound conceited!

It seems like UCL generally focuses on the performance in the essay instead of just the mcq result. A poor performance in the essay could see someone with high mcq points not receiving an offer and vice versa.
Makes sense!

Congratulations!! When did you get your offer? I know a few people (doing history and history of art) who still haven't got offers, so I'm not too worried...

Hello! Congrats everyone! I'm applying for Oxford but I wouldn't count on getting in, if I do, I'll most probably firm Oxford instead. If I don't, I'm not really sure if I should firm UCL or Durham, since UCL is more reputable for arch and anth but I feel that I'm better suited to the environment at Durham.



I'm an international student so it's not really feasible for them to carry out an interview. I did get a questionnaire though.

I have an offer to study anthropology at UCL! not sure whether to firm it or Durham. Good luck!

Ahahaha I'm facing the same dilemma right now. I can't decide between UCL and Durham - UCL seems more attractive in terms of its course and location, but it's much pricier as well. :/
