    Have been waiting for an offer from Bath since the beginning of December for Sport Science... Getting worried as most of my other offers have come through, but Bath is the one I want most to get into.

    I just wondered if anyone else was/is waiting for a while to hear back from Bath? I do a BTEC so maybe the decision isnt as clear cut as A Levels because they're not as popular with students... Would this have an effect on waiting time?!

    Hi I think i'm the same as you. I'd absolutely love to go to Bath.
    I applied 9th November with predicted D*D*D* in sport development, coaching and fitness(even though they only state sport science Btec) a B grade in Biology A-level and a C-grade in eng literature AS level. :-/ and a decent personal statement.
    Unfortunately i've heard nothing since, however I got an conditional from Exeter with easy grades, and both uni's are neck and neck in competition with each other. What are your predicted grades?

    I am assuming im in a 'maybe' pile because they haven't rejected me or accepted me for so far, so it just depends on the category of other students that apply and if their better than me.

    But in answer to your question, a-levels are highly looked upon compared to btec's there. That's what my teacher said, who wen't there. Plus last year out of 70 students, only 4 had done a btec in order to get into Bath Uni and two of them had dropped out by the first christmas.
