    Newbie here. Just got my Oxford letter. Picked up this morning, my hands were tremblin. Envelope had some weight so that was a good sign. Took the letter out and just dropped it :eek: .....picked it back up and OFFER!!!! AAA with an A in geography. Place was for geography at Worcester college.

    Can't believe it. There were 16 apps. for 4 places, all had better grades and essays than me. ( My GCSE's were A*AAAABBBC and my essays were both 20/25).

    Been stressin over this for a good six months, affected all my schoolwork, now hope to get things back to normal.

    Thnx , specialheffa, wonkey Sazzle. Good luck to you all!!! I know what you're all going thru waitin for your letters. All I can say is if possible, try to start revisin for your exams before you get your letter, so that whatever it says at least you will have started your revision. If you can't, then I recommend just thinking about where you would go if you don't get into Ox/Cam, and just think of the advantages of that place, so that if you do get rejected then you will be happy elsewhere hopefully, and if you get accepted then you can enjoy it.

    Did you get in??

    No it's not wrong to cry - I cried when I passed my driving test - when you get really worked up about something the stress finally 'gives' when it's all over and it may come out in the form of tears.

    Hey,
    No its not wrong to cry at all, if i had received an offer I think I would have cried much more than I did yesterday when I didn't receive an offer, after all the year has been such a struggle i.e :-

    working hard to get the AS grades, visiting Oxford/Cam, deciding to apply for Oxford/Cam, making such that the UCAS form is done on time, filling out the extra Oxford form, sending work/preparing for an exam,preparing for interviews, going to interviews and then waiting for the results.

    In my opinion its all a massive pressure build up and to receive an offer makes it all worthwhile and crying with relief seems only natural!

    Stay happy!
