    No problem

    GCSE: 9A*4A AS: AABD in Bio, Chem, Physics and Maths respectively (I'm useless in maths exams) A2: predicted A*A*A in Bio, Chem and Physics (resitting an AS module) and hopefully an A for my EPQ. The offer is AAB.

    Hope this helps

    Hi! Is anyone applying for Law at Durham for 2016? I'm doing my LNAT exam tomorrow, and I'm really stuggling, does anyone have any advice? I'm a straight A / A* student, I don't understand why I find the LNAT so difficult

    Hi, fellow Durham Law applicant here My only advice would be TIME MANAGEMENT. I ran out of time in my LNAT and had to rush the last few multiple choice questions.

    Also, plan your essay before you start it - that way you'll write it quickly and won't get all tangled up in your argument.

    Other than that, you can't really revise for it, it's meant to test inherent ability. Where else have you applied for Law?

    Okay thanks so much! If you don't mind me asking, what score did you get on your LNAT? I'm also applying to Bristol, York, Nottingham and keele but I really want to put Durham as my firm.

    Is anyone a Durham student here?

    There's one thing I'm worried about: is there a kind of "Oxbridge rejects" mood in the university? I know most people who apply there also apply to Durham so I thought it might do something to the overall atmosphere of the place...

    I'm at Durham, the oxbridge reject atmosphere is normally humorous, we laugh at ourselves for not getting in rather than being bitter about it (although personally I didn't apply to oxbridge). You only ever hear about it on yik yak haha.

    Literally has no impact on the day to day atmosphere of the place!

    honestly don't worry, i know loads of people who haven't either and we all sent them off at the same time (oxbridge deadline)!
    which college did you apply for? have you visited the school at all?
    also it probably is because I'm an international applicant!! i hear they tend to go through them first?

    I'm not sure what score I got on my LNAT, apparently I don't find out until February :/ I've applied to Nottingham as well but I still haven't heard. Don't worry, Durham take a while and usually send out the majority of their offers after January when all the Oxbridge offers are out of the way
