    A*AA, although from what I understand about Bristol that's more of an aspirational offer. They usually should accept you even if you get AAA in the actual exam period.

    any law students along the lines of LSE WARWICK BIRMINGHAN NOTTINGHAM and OXFORD getting any acknowledgements or offers?
    I applied yesterday (Tuesday) and got an acknowledgement email from Birmingham for law this morning. I found it in my promotions folder on gmail, so maybe it's in there if you use it!

    I'm predicted AAA (and A* EPQ) so hopefully it'll be enough

    Would you be able to copy and paste the main bit of the email? Obviously excluding name, email address and any other personal details lol? I'd be super duper grateful.
    No problem

    Thank you for your application to Durham University. We value your application and will inform you of the outcome as soon as possible. At Durham University, your application will be considered by admissions selector(s) for the department(s) to which you have applied. The admissions selectors will consider all applications as quickly as possible but in the interests of fairness, many decisions will need to wait until we have received all applications which were submitted by the UCAS deadline of 15 January. We do aim to make all decisions on on-time applications by the end of March. Our admissions process, works as follows: 1. An admissions selector will consider your UCAS application and make a decision - some applicants will be invited for interview but most decisions will be made without interview. For eligible applicants (e.g. applicants applying for two very different programmes) this will include consideration of their substitute personal statement if this has been submitted in time. For more information about this, please visit our website here: http://www.dur.ac.uk/undergraduate/a...ent/substitute 2. If the department decides you are to receive an offer, details of this will be communicated through UCAS. If, sadly, we are unable to make you an offer, this outcome will also be communicated through UCAS. If you do receive an offer through UCAS, your campus code, that is the code for your college preference, will change to Z to show that your college allocation is pending. 3. The first round of college allocations for applicants who have received an academic offer by 1st February will take place by 1st March and then regularly after this date for applicants who receive an academic offer after 1st February. At this point, should the date not have already passed, you will also be invited to an Post-Offer Visit Day. Information about our Post-Offer Visit Days (including the dates once these are published) can be found on our website here: www.dur.ac.uk/undergraduate/visit/postoffer If your department decides that you are to receive an offer, your application is automatically considered for your preferred college. All colleges have a limited number of offers they can make to applicants from each department. Where an applicant has expressed a preference for a college and the college has space then the applicant will be offered a place there. If the number of applicants with departmental offers expressing a preference for a college exceeds the space available then the allocation will be a blind selection of those applicants. This inevitably means that some applicants cannot be placed at their preferred college. If this happens we guarantee to find you a place at a different college. If you have not nominated a college in your UCAS application, we will allocate one on your behalf. The important thing to remember is that anyone who has been accepted by an academic department via UCAS will secure a place at one of our colleges. Applicants who accept Durham University as their firm choice and who meet or exceed the exact terms of their offer will be guaranteed their allocated college. Applicants who accept Durham University as their insurance choice or fail to meet the terms of their offer and are accepted as a `near miss' applicant may be reallocated a college in August. However, wherever possible, applicants will be placed in the college that they were originally allocated to. Applicants may change their college preference up to the point that college allocation commences. Applicants wishing to do this need to contact us at [email protected]. Please note that Durham University will only communicate with you, the applicant, regarding your application to the University. Should you wish us to discuss your application with anyone else we shall require a written document giving your express permission, even if you have already given permission to UCAS. If you wish to contact us please quote your full name, date of birth, UCAS personal identification number and programme for which you have applied. Any information supplied to us will be held in line with our Data Protection Policy which can be viewed at the following link: www.dur.ac.uk/data.protection/policy Further information regarding our admissions processes can be found at: http://www.dur.ac.uk/undergraduate/apply Alternatively, please e-mail our admissions team at [email protected].

    Sorry it looks so messy, I'm sending it on my phone and I'm sure there were line spaces before I pressed submit haha

    Yeah I don't see why they'd need to move colleges if you missed your offer slightly, especially if it was your firm choice anyway! Very strange (and mean lol)

    FWIW I think that you'd be unlucky to not get an offer from what I've heard. Though you may have to wait a bit longer than others before you get an offer..

    When did you send your application off? Also, what's your stats(I.e. AS grades and maths + FM UMS),if you don't mind me asking?
    Hey! I sent my application off nearly 2 weeks ago, and only received an acknowledgement email yesterday! Are you also a fellow maths applicant?

    I got AAA at AS (Maths, Chem and Bio) and did some FM modules, but this year I am completing my AS in FM and doing it for A-Level. Managed to get mid 90 ums for all maths modules (and 88 in Mechanics 2!)

    I know it doesn't mean I won't get an offer, but if they are able to make such quick decisions on some, there must be a reason why I'm not getting one

    haha looks like we have a pretty high chance of seeing each other some point in the future then lol

    and I sent mine off on the 3rd and got an offer from Southampton on the 10th and Birmingham today!

    why did you choose oxford? i literally just went for cambridge because they seem to put less emphasis on the admissions test (which i am terrified of lol)
