    Just out of interest, where did you find the placement at the law firm? Is it in the UK?
    yeah it's a firm called Pinsent Masons- they have offices globally with a lot of UK locations. I was gonna be based at Manchester.

    Got rejected by Durham last night, for English, pretty gutted. I knew they would but I still really hoped they'd accept me somehow...made me realise I only wanted to go to Durham! Haha, not sure what to do now tbh.
    You could always take a gap year and reapply. But it may not be worth it if there are other good universities that you have offers for.

    History at University College
    GCSE: 3A* 4A 2B
    AS: AAAB
    A-Level Predicted: A*A*A

    Waiting eagerly for a response but kind of think my GCSE profile means I don't stand a chance :/ Although Oxford did interview me (albeit I didn't get an offer) which kind of gives me hope.. I guess?

    Wouldn't be worried! There's a massive improvement in your grades from GCSE to AS and them predicted are extremely good! Good luck

    It may depend on how relevant it is to your course and how flexible your department is. For example, I applied for Spanish and Arabic and got an offer. I was then offer then chance to work at an international law firm for a gap year so emailed to ask if I could defer but they said no... :/ going straight to uni as too scared to gamble with my place lol
    I might reapply, but gambling a hypothetical offer like this just sounds SO scary!

    Durham doesn't look at GCSEs as much as Oxford does, and you've definitely improved on your AS and predicted A2s, so I wouldn't worry too much

    I didn't apply to Imperial but I applied to St Andrews too! I think I'd rather go to Durham though, because St Andrews is just so small... not that Durham is exactly massive though (I'm from a small town so want to have something new I guess, haha )
    Do you know when we're likely to hear back? The wait is killing me :laugh:

    Does that mean you missed the UCAS deadline?

    No, I submitted everything, including transcripts, on the 13th and my application was processed the next day. They just took a few days to wade through all the emails they received and forward my transcripts to my application. Everything was in on time.
