    What should I do here? AAA from Manchester and Liverpool. Pref is Manchester but I know that I can only achieve AAB (due to knowing where I stand with my Art course work to date). Can I hold Manchester as firm and Liverpool as insurance? Do you think that there is any chance that Manchester will take me if I get AAB - and if they dont would Liverpool? Does anyone have any insight into previous years and what grades got thru? I have heard from a 1st year friend at Liverpool (doing Geog) that someone they know is on the arch course with ABC -- no idea how many others are on the course without AAA. I have no info on Manchester but believe it to be a much more oversubscribed course? Should I cut my losses, not take any risks - reject Manchester and firm Liverpool? Would Liverpool be less likely to let me in on AAB if I had put them insurenace rather than firm?

    Still Put Manchester as firm, what you never did is done, you may get those results, or they may get you in with AAB as well. If you reject it you will shut that door anyway no matter what, Put Liverpool as insurance, just incase Manchester won't accept AAB, you could try to see then if Liverpool would. Liverpool Is yet a pretty good school and insurance, but, in the meantime, don't renounce to give yourself a try with Manchester. This is just my opinion, hope that helps 😊

    I think that it really comes down to every single student, if you have a regular portfolio they may reject you if you don't get the results, but incase they really liked you as a candidate, they may put a step forward to get you in and accept those results, I don't believe that is just about the grades, they consider your app as a whole, and incase they like someone I'm sure they won't be to strict with their grades requirements.

    Thanks - that is really motivational - and yes follow your heart/dreams. My only thing is would Manchester have given me AAB if my portfolio was really brilliant...? They didnt....

    Of course they're not gonna do so now. They still want you to do your best in other to get there, they didn't give you low requirements or unconditional offer, but you don't know what will be their response to your Scores once, you don't know what kind of student you are for them wether a good one or an outstanding good one. You can't really tell so why should you deprive yourself the right to see how things will turn out.

    UCL answered me only yesterday and I sent my task on 6 January (I'm an international applicant if that helps). No hearing from Cardiff as well.

    Mine was super last minute so I took it there myself even though the email said not to, but they sent me an email the next day confirming they'd received it. I think it normally takes a little longer to process if you send it by mail because there are so many applicants. If you haven't heard back soon I would call them to double check

    Kent, Nottingham and Sheffield. What about you?


    "Did you guys get a mail where it says they received the task? mine got delivered yesterday with ups, or that is what the track says. I'm worried. should i call and ask ?"

    UCL sent me an email on the next day as far as I remember, but Cardiff didn't.

    "Did you get an interview?"

    Nope, my application was unsuccessful.

    Hey guys is there any EU or internationals that applied to the Bartlett? I found today on the website, (thing that I didn't notice before, and it's crazy since I've been looking at their website so many times... But I just didn't happen to read it ) that EU international students had to communicate by email that they wanted to have an interview in London, incase the wished so. I'm from Italy but I would sure go to an interview if they will contact me for one, it's been a couple of days after they received my task and I don't know if it's appropriate to write them. What did you do ?
