    I think it really depends, I heard some people already got an offer so I don't know. As far as I'm concerned They sent me today an email saying that they received my task. Good luck everybody! I'm so nervous since I want to go there so bad!
    good luck! where else have you applied?

    Requirements:
    University of Nottingham -AAA
    Oxford Brookes -Unconditional or ABB if insurance

    Haven't received an reply from Newcastle yet. It has been a month since I sent my portfolio. Do you think I should call them?
    possibly, i received a response the next day so it seems a little out of their character.

    I got all 5 of my uni choices (Reading, Sheffield Hallam, UCA, Lincoln and Salford) and I'm predicted BBB in Maths, Product Design and RE (and I currently have a D in AS geography).

    I really want to study architecture at Reading Uni because it's closer to home and I get that certain feeling that Reading is the one. The campus and accommodation is awesome whilst the area seems like endless adventures awaits (sounding real cheesy right there...). Then again the course is in the process of RIBA validation, and I need ABB to get in.

    On the other hand...I had a bad time visiting Sheffield Hallam Uni for an interview and vowed never to go to Sheffield ever again. Despite the rough journey going back home on the day...I got an offer that's unconditional if I make SHU my firm choice.I feel that I may screw up with my A-levels, but I kinda want to go to Reading more despite the course being new. Should I go Reading or play safe and go SHU?

    Don't go somewhere that you hate, it will be a big regret of yours in the future, however course validation is essential for being an architect and if you know you want to become an architect at the end then don't go to reading. However if you just want a degree and like architecture then Reading is a great place to study that is doing awesome scholarships at the moment. What about your other 3 options?

    Reading will have the RIBA accreditation soon - it is just admin to go thru. Reading already has an excellent reputation for aligned built environment subjects - so the course will be v high quality. Reading is also RG. Seen on this thread that someone was offered ACC .. so if you slipped to this on results day this would indicate that they would take you with these grades. Go with your heart and gut! Well done on your offer.

    Thanks dude! Well UCA is alright (although 4G is a myth in Canterbury) and i need to visit Lincoln. Salford would probably be my insurance choice...
