    9A*s, 2As and a B at GCSE. AABC at AS. Predicted A*A*A. Honestly was hoping for a rejection because I want to accept my unconditional from Birmingham, but it still sucks to be told you're not good enough. Also failed at Oxford but got interviewed.
    Holy crumpets how did you get rejected?! I'm happy for you that you got the one you wanted though! But still, they must be crazy to reject you!!

    when I went I honestly didnt get a feel for the place at all. But that was probably because I was scurrying around different departments. I think if I were to firm Durham I'd have had to look around again first to make sure I get good vibes

    Yeah I went to one in September and it's a really pretty city, students were lovely and obviously I can't say much about any department other than maths, but I liked my department at least. Durham is full of stunning architecture and has a nice feel to it, like they want you to achieve academic pinnacles but they also want you to be a well rounded human being. I had a look around some of the colleges (can't remember which ones now) and then set my heart of Hatfield, which was having work done on it at the time. The only real downside is how hilly it is, but on the other hand walking up and down hills is a good way to stay fit, especially seeing how you'll be walking everywhere as students aren't allowed cars. Also they try to stage nights out in Newcastle a lot, but as a North Easterner I can tell you they aren't right next door to each other, but you can still get there in about half an hour with reasonable traffic. Obviously I like it and that's why it's my firm hahaha Have you not been on an open day?

    Hi I haven't been to an open day but went up to look around and it's absolutely gorgeous! Really cute town with cobbled streets and independent cafes (really cheap homemade food and cake too!). I got good vibes, everyone was super friendly and all the colleges I saw were nice
