and how come some people have received bbb from nottigham while others aab???
Hey .. UCL sent me a request for a portfolio and it is wierd.. They want all the usual stuff like paintings, sketches blah blah but then they also want me to include something that I like but i think they wont like and I have to explain why ..
These is the status of my applications so far :
AA : Interview
UCL : Asked for portfolio
Cambridge : pooled
Nottingham : BBB
Bath : AAB
Newcastle : ABB
Sheffield : Rejected (I called to ask why and its apprantly because I didnt do art gcse or alevel .. *******s.. - not that I want to go there its just a backup but ... it feels bad being rejected by your backup !!!)

Have you gotten anything from UCL yet ?

exactly! my offer is AAB. swines. AND they insisted i pass my 2 yr AS. why r they GIVING away BBB offers? jimmy, r u in a private school? that could be it. i've been rejected from nearly all my backups. why is architecture getting so bloody demanding??? i should call my rejections n give them a piece of my mind.

arch is arty AND sciency, it depends where u go. eg UCL is v. arts based, whereas notts is much more mathsy. they like it if u do a mix of both kinds of subjects tho.

dont get ur hopes up with the AA, it's not the be all and end all. go to notts, it's the best. r u in a private school?

check out the courses in the prospectuses, u can get a better idea about the maths load. i mean, it's architecture, so there'll always b an element of maths n physics in it, as well as art.

Ok, about offers, did u disclose your AS results? Did your BBB friend? what did u get in ASs jimmy? and adelz? i really really should have disclosed mine... oh well.

I got a BBB offer without disclosing my AS results. . I got AAAB at A/s otherwise, which was what I was predicted..

Don't do Architecture at Nottingham cause they think we are all superhuman and that we have 48 hours in a day not 24!
