What did you do when you found out? Watch
So are you leaving Essex Uni (as this is your location according to your tag thing) to go to Oxbridge?
It arrived on our last day of term. I went out that night to a party without going home first. Arrived back around 1.30 am to find my parents sitting up looking anxious. Initally I thought something dreadful had happened or that I was in deep trouble. Then I saw the envelope. The parents said they didn't want to spoil my evening by telling me it had arrived but they couldn't go to bed not knowing!! In all honesty a night partying dulled the experience. My Dad insisted on opening a bottle of champagne he'd bought in hope. He had worked out that a thickish enevelope was probably a good sign. Waking the next morning was a straneg mix of elation, confusion and hangover. Eventually it sunk in.
Oh I like your story.
I go to Essex uni - I was made an offer of AAA for Oxford, but only got AAB.
Oh that is unfortunate, but I bet you're having a great time in Essex.
Yeah Essex is good - am probably having more fun and doing less work than i would at Oxford
6am I was forced to open my eyes because of the noise made by the postman outside. Imediately I jumped off the bed and grabed all the letter. there includes the one, very small. I started to worry becuase I thought they don't have to use a big letter and write a lot of stuff if they rejects you! but I tried to stay calm and opened it with surprise. I got an offer!!!!
My letter STILL hasnt arrived at my house even though it was posted on the 30th Dec! I went to school on monday wondering why all the teachers were looking at me and smiling (they usually scowl at me). One of them said 'well done, you must be pleased' and when i asked why they were to busy shouting at a Y7. It wasnt till 2pm when i was asked to see the head that i knew what it was all about (he showed me the school's letter). I left, run into the toilet and screamed and then had to go to maths to do a test (cudnt tell any1 for a whole hour cos we had to be quite and I was late).
Well done Which college?
Well done Which college?
Jesus College, nat sci AAAB. What about you (im guessing your nat sci too
lol - yeah, I'm at Sidney. Congrats to you!
However, Iwould like to set the record straight. It has been over a year since I got my offer and I can assure any 'self indulgent' whims have just about worn off. I wanted to provide a seperate thread for people wanting share their stories as it seemed there was a place for it and must add that I did NOT specify that the thread was only for those who have received offers.
