    No I havent sent it back, but Im still not sure what Im going to choose cause I really wanna live the Harry Potter style:tongue: but Im also not sure if I can afford it
    I thought Ive read somewhere that we should send it in even if its just our insurance choice but Im not that sure about it.

    You people make me so jealous with all your talk about accommodations and so on :P In a good way Yay to all of you who have received offers. I think regardless of where I end up, I'm going to have to choose the cheapest accommodation, which is sort of a shame because I would've loved to live like... well, Harry Potter :P

    Hehe you'll hear soon hopefully

    I'd ask what your grades etc were but I'm assuming I wouldn't understand the context of them, as you're international?

    Well, I read 35 courses (or 36, I'm not sure) and I have an A (well, it's called an MVG but in order to make it easy I'll call it an A, otherwise I'll just confuse myself) in a lot of them, at least 20 of them and those I do not have an A in, I've got a B.

    Other than that, I'm not sure how good I am of explaining my grades :P

    35 courses :| I understand obviously the levels of detail won't be the same as more concentrated ones...
    BUT IT STILL CONFUSES ME.
    Well done anyway!

    I do.. three. Nice and simple :tongue:

    Hehe. How come you only do three? Why not more? And which three do you study? *is curious*

    Its the standard in England, average student does:
    roughly 12 GCSES (which you study for from age 15-16 roughly)
    4 AS's (age 17) then you drop your least favourite/lowest grade of the 4 to then do
    3 A2's, where the grades of your AS's count as half of the full A2 marks

    A levels are highly detailed and in depth, and the point is that from the start of your GCSE's you narrow down your subjects each year until you choose one to specialise in for university (barring joint honours etc etc)

    This doesn't apply to everyone, its very generalised but it's the average

    And the 3 subjects i do are English Literature, History and Politics.

    EDIT: It has been said by some that A levels can be as much hard work as university (obviously this doesn't apply to every A level subject/university course) But it has been said!

    Jikes! Well, I do hope that wherever I end up, I won't fall behind. Or if I do, that I'll meet lots of friendly people who won't mind helping me catch up if I need to :P

    Right now I'm watching a Korean drama. They are so filled with crack that I can't help but love them. Totally hilarious :P

    St Andrews really do take their time. >_> I don't know whether I want to go to Glasgow or St Andrews actually, I'm totally torn, but some kind of response from them would probably help. At least we'll know by the end of this month, right? :P

    I hope you will all get some good response from them

    Ergh, the wait is killing me. The same thing happened to me last year: no offers, waiting for andys, wanting andys soooo badly and then a cruel rejection mid march. This year I have an offer for Newcastle but I would much prefer St Andrews. I have AAB at present in English, French and History but I'm resitting the History, so hopefully that should be AAA and I'm also doing a whole Politics A-Level in my gap year so really i should end up with four A's. Alexandra, I see you're doing pretty much the same subjects as me, I don't want to be rude but what did you get at AS? I assume you're predicted AAA? I've applied for anglaaiiss as well

    AARGHHHHHH
    Haha don't worry I got AABC at AS, predicted AAA!
    Ahh, it's so hard for everyone waiting I bet
    I was hating the wait myself!

    Did everyone else get the email about scholarships today?

    I just tried to apply but I think there's some bugs (or it might just be me..!), there isn't enough space in the box for my ucas number, and when I tried to submit it said that I need to fill in my surname which I already had done! Has anyone else had problems with it?
