    How you found out: Had a missed call on my phone and didn't recognise the dial code. Looked it up and saw it was oxford and was too terrified to call back as they hadn't left a message and I thought I didn't want to ring back to be rejected! Then they rang back and gave me a place.
    Reaction: Just said OH WOW. They're probably regretting their choice haha

    Offer: Already have AAA at A level
    How I found out: Letter,
    Reaction: That's a small letter. Oh. It's heavier than one sheet, there's two sheets, one of them's yellow.. why would they have this many sheets for a rejection? stop thinking and read the letter....: "I am pleased.." I got in then I read the rest of the letter, just to check it didn't say "I am pleased to say that we're not giving you an offer so someone else can have one. Sorry" So happy today. No stress - can enjoy the rest of my gap year.

    Offer: No idea
    How you found out: After getting an email asking me if 2012 entry would be an acceptable alternative, I spent days deliberating it, sent a well thought out reply saying 'yes, but 2011 would be my VERY STRONG preference' I got a really short reply telling me I have an offer for 2012.
    Reaction: Slightly annoyed haha but also surprised!

    Has anyone else had something like this? Given an offer for 2012? It sucks cos of the fees thing and I really hadn't thought about a gap year at all!
