    Cheers. I've also applied to Southampton, Warwick, Birmingham, Durham and York. Got a rejection from Warwick and an offer from Southampton, with predicted grades AAAA. U?
    Im on a gap year.
    Applied last year to NEwcastle, nottingham, York, leeds, bristol, UMIST.
    I got an offer from all with predicted grades ABB (i think). Got ABB in end.

    my friend got rejected from York for History for (he presumed) that reason. they were right though, he has applied to oxford. he did get really annoyed that his friend got accepted for the same course there with AS grades ABCC (he has AAAA)... university admission is often a game of chance (so it appears), we all guess what the unis want + they guess where we really want to go...

    are you at uni now? Doin What?

    I think it is really bad that unis reject ppl on that grounds.
    That is why the changed it so your choices were in alaphbetical order and that they couldn't see ur other choices. That is why they sometimes ask.

    BE WARNED.

    After I got rejected from Durham, a friend who got (slightly) lower A/S grades and got accepted told me that if I'd applied before the Oxbridge deadline they would have presumed that I was applying to Oxbridge and would have been more likely to have offered me a place.

    I did get an offer from Nottingham though... ABB for politics
