    Yep, I've gotten an offer (for 34 in the IB). I think I got it about 6 weeks after I applied. I'm sure you'll get it soon if your personal statement and grades are good

    when did you send your application off? I sent mine off in the third week of october! so it'll be six weeks this week haha just hoping I'll hear from them soon, I know applicants from last year that didn't hear from them until march!

    Does anyone know what size the sheets are for the Sheffield portfolio (A4, A3, as big as you like)?

    I haven't sent my application yet but I can't find it on the website or the guidance sheet, although this might be my incompetence rather than it not being there...

    I am in year 12, by A2 I'm hoping to achieve an A in Maths, B in Further Maths, B in Physics and a B in Product Design.

    What universities would I be able to get into? My dream has always been bath but highly doubt I would get accepted!

    Recently, I have been thinking that I need to start my portfolio for applications, would this be needed/helpful?

    Sorry for all the questions and I thank anyone in advance. Any advice at all would be amazing!

    A4 sheets
    Thank you so very much!

    Also, are we able to use the 'My Street' task in other portfolios sent to other universities? It seems a waste to only use it in one!

    Hi everyone, thought I'd join in now I've finally sent off my application,

    I've applied to Bath, Edinburgh, UCL, Sheffield and Brighton and am predicted AAA in Fine Art, Maths and French and an A in EPQ so Bath is a bit of a long shot but I've got my fingers crossed!

    I got the email today about the portfolio for Sheffield and I was wondering what kind of things others included, like should it be entirely arty stuff or is it worth including some design ideas and models I've made for EPQ?

    I need help! I'm trying to upload my Portfolio to the Sheffield Undergraduate Document Upload site, and there is a limit of 6MB. Currently, the 10 pages amount to 95MB apparently, so how am I supposed to reduce it that much? Other than just compressing images - which is doing nowt good.

    It's art you've done so ofc you can!!! Unis won't be discussing your artwork between them and plus you should have a lot to say about it now you've designed it to Sheffield's brief

    100% include 3D work especially if it was part of your independent EPQ project and not part of your internal school subjects. If by design ideas you mean initial sketches then again YES! I'd definitely recommend thoughtful sketches over finished pieces.

    Are you definitely sure you've compressed the images? I had 20 images taken on a DSLR and it managed to compress to circa 4MB. How many images have you included?

    There's roughly 30 in there, of varying sizes. Is that too much? Should I think about trimming it down?

    30 images definitely isn't too much as long as you could give a valid, unique and interesting reason for including and creating each one. If you can do this with only 5 or even 40 images then it would still be fine. However if it starts going over the size limit then that's when you need to start being more selective.

    Don't trim anything down!! There's an editing tool that compresses all images to lower definitions! Google, or just have a quick look for it!

    Yes. Got an offer, after a week since I submitted the portfolio. I am an international student, but the offer is the equivalent of A*/AAA. It is almost the same as the one from Bath, which is quite interesting.
