    FOR ANYONE HOPING TO GO TO DURHAM UNIVERSITY (PARTICULARLY GEOGRAPHERS) LISTEN UP!

    I have just completed my first year at Durham, studying BSc Geography. I know how all of you guys feel right now - I was in bits! I just want to say good luck to everyone and I hope you all achieve what you deserve. The next year of your life will be so life-changing, I can't even describe how eye-opening and amazing it will be. Just hold onto this dream and make it happen. I didn't get the required A*AA for last year, I got AAB, but I called the Durham Geography department immediately, and although it took a few hours, I got in based on prior academic performance, other achievements and my personal statement/reference. So if you miss the offer, just hold on to the hope that Durham might still take you, and try your absolute hardest to get in because it will be worth it. Even when I arrived at Durham, I quickly found out that most people missed their offers! Just because you miss your offer, it does not mean you are not worthy! I'm not boasting, but even though I missed mine, I'm now placed in the top 5% of my year - A-levels mean nothing once you get to uni! So, please, I urge you, if you miss your offer and Track still says your Durham offer is conditional, ring them up. The department gave you an offer in the first place because they are desperate to have you.

    GOOD LUCK. I really hope you all achieve the required grades, but if not, you are not a failure and you shouldn't give up, just try your best. Have hope and faith - there will be a lot of people in the 'missed offer' position, so you are not alone. And when all you guys do get into university, I sincerely hope you have the most fantastic experience of your lives. Guys, your life begins tomorrow whatever the outcome, so be excited about it

    Is having your firm and insurance choice in clearing for the course you want to do a good thing or no? I heard quite a few sides of the story to how it can be a good thing or not! A bit confused.

    Woah, a lot of solid courses from Manchester (took a decent university at random).

    What the hell happened at Manchester?
    It's my firm, so I'm slightly nervous after seeing how many courses they have in clearing!
