    UCL, Cambridge, Warwick, LSE and Bristol. I'm slightly shocked and disappointed - I wasn't expecting rejections from both UCL and Warwick. I guess it happens. Hopefully I'll receive some feedback from Warwick and LSE. UCL on the otherhand wrote: Regretfully, your academic record to date does not warrant further consideration"

    I'm British...ARGH I'm pulling out my hair.
    I'm started to plan my gap year. After four rejections I just do not expect any offers from Bristol.
    Unconditional from Bristol? Congratulations. How I envy you right now.
    What were your grades?
    I didn't like Warwick particularly - but preferred it much more compared to Manchester/York/etc.
    I love cities - so Bristol would be nice. London would have been a dream especially UCL and LSE.

    Well, entry to two are like winning the lottery. The other 3 would either be bad luck due to good competition, or a poor personal statement, or poor UMS scores which made 3 A* predictions seem too optimistic. It happens a lot unfortunately.

    Nope, assuming you were predicted at least one A*. You have other reasonable options in there.

    Ah. Interesting third and fourth subjects; might affect your application a bit, but if your A* was in Maths you should be a little relieved
