    Thanks! My predictions were A*AA and I literally just finished my portfolio now! Oxford Brookes wanted it on a website called Carbonmade, so I've just finished making my portfolio on there

    Well done on Bath - that's amazing! I got an email from them today though, saying they won't be giving offers until January 15th, so that it's fair on all applicants, so I don't know what that's about.. Because I know someone who applied to Bath for a different course and got an offer last month.
    I got the same email today as well, so mad when I realised it wasn't an offer/rejection ahah. I think they're giving out Architecture offers to international students first

    I sent off my UCL task one week ago and i received a interview letter today!
    Well done for getting this far!! So lucky!! I sent my UCL task around 3 days ago and received the confirmation email that they received it, I'm so so worried as I have no clue whether my drawings were appropriate for them . Is it okay if you could explain what u did for your 6 drawings and theme so I can at least get an idea about whether my response was good enough. Or could u post your drawings if you don't mind?? Thanks

    applied to Bath, Oxford brooks, Sheffield, UCL and Cambridge.
    got the offers from Bath and Oxford Brooks, and the interviews to UCL and Cambridge next week, feeling excited but also stressed.
    also got an email from Sheffield last week, saying that they are unable to offer me a place in architecture but would like to offer me one in town planning or urban studies, but I replied back saying that I do not wish to accept the alternative because architecture has always been something I want to do, so I got rejected today, but anyways, have to face the failure and learn from it...
    congrats on your offers + interviews! just wondering, did you do a levels or ib or something else? also are you a international student?

    Well done! I applied to Cardiff bc I know its well regarded and high up on UK Architecture league tables. Also the fact it's a capital city must mean it's good for placements. I've always been drawn to universities within the city as well and not campus universities (the only drawback about Bath for me)
    Thank you!! I think I ll choose Edinburgh, in the end. I don't really care that much as I really like my other 4 choices and have some offers.
    How's your application going?
    Good luck everyone!

    Sorry to hear that you have to wait a little while for your offers, with some competitive courses sadly the only way to ensure equal consideration is to wait to the UCAS deadline. I was in a similar position last year waiting for my offer and understand that it can be a stressful time for you. If you have any questions in the meantime please feel free to let me know.

    I did 15-20 images of my work. My pages had either 2 or 3 images on them, so my portfolio totalled around 10 pages.

    Wow that sets you up fantastically!!
    Congratulations on the interviews for Cambridge and UCL! I'm very surprised Sheffield didn't give you an offer considering your predicted grades are so far over their offer..
    If you wouldn't mind me asking; what did you include in your portfolio?/ what approach did you take with the 'Your street' task?

    thank you however, i dont think high grades will advantage oneself that much tho, cuz it's more about portfolio and interview from many universities
    sheffield offered me a place on another course, but i didnt accept that offer since architecture has always been something i want to do

    for the sheffield portfolio i included:
    2 pages observational drawings studying organic and irregular forms and negative space, using pen, pencil, watercolour, charcoal and ink
    2 pages of pen drawings from my personal sketchbook, architecture related, observational and from photos
    1 page 3D
    1 page life drawings using pencil, ink, charcoal and collage
    2 pages on my previous art projects with sketchbook pages
    1 page illustrations using watercolour, acrylic, pencil and oil
    and then the "street" task...
    tbh i dont think i ve done that well in the street task, i mean, at least i can do better than what i handed in, so maybe thats one of the reasons why i got rejected...

    Well done on your offer from bath!! To get an offer from bath (this early) is really awesome

    Also, thanks for advise about the Nottingham portfolio before.

    Can I also ask, when you uploaded your portfolio to the website, was there a tab "Checklist" that had an orange '1' on it, saying something like "Request for portfolio"? Because I didn't have that and I feel like they've only sent me an email request but forgot to officially put me on the system as 'Waiting for portfolio", becaae surely it would sya on MyNottingham that ive got a portfolio task to do.

    Sorry for the questions, im just really paranoid about this stuff!!
