    I have a feeling it'll be Durham that replies to me last, as I'm so keen to hear a decision from them. Agh this wait could be a long one...

    If you've applied to both, chances are you're good enough for at least one! Also, what have you applied for?

    Applied for English

    GCSE'S: A*AABBBBC (A* in lit)

    AS: English lit A (191/200)
    RS- A (100%)
    Fine art- B

    Predictions: A*AA (I'm aiming for two A*'s )

    I have an offer from Lancaster & York university to study Literature, and my personal statement is strong according to 3 English literature teachers. I'm so doubtful over hearing so many rumours about the weighting of GCSE'S. All of my teachers consider me to have come into my own at A level- I constantly overanalysed and went into too much detail at GCSE- hence why they believe I am much more suited to A levels.
    I had a large adversity in year 10 that landed me in hospital for most of the year- however I have not told Durham admissions- I'm debating telling them but it may seems as though I'm too keen (even though it is my dream).

    Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated

    Still waiting on an offer for MMath (European Studies). Was really hoping to hear earlier than this as Durham is my first choice. Has anyone got an offer for this course yet? My grades are
    GCSE: 11 A*s
    AS: 4As
    Predicted: 4A*s
    I also applied for Cambridge and so my UCAS has been in since early October, I'm a bit worried because I've heard Durham are reluctant to give offers to people they think have applied to Oxbridge. Is there any truth in this?
    I too applied to Durham and Cambridge for maths and I have similar predictions to you, I only got my offer from Durham just before Christmas and they were last to reply (other than Cam of course). I think Durham are quite slow getting back to people so I shouldn't worry.

    Hey I applied for English joint with philosophy and those are great ums for AS since literature will be heavily weighted to, I didn't score so highly but I'd say email them about it if it could help although I know how you feel about the too keen part because my teacher emailed them to change a predicted grade but they respond efficiently and kindly and take everything into consideration so it can't really disadvantage you- also then you'll have done everything you can and if you still think you look too keen then just imagine it can only work in your favour as they'll see you probably want to firm them
