    On AES, if you click on "links", there may be a college link for the college they've allocated you to.

    Still waiting on International Relations (L250). I swear waiting till March will kill me, especially since I've already been rejected from LSE.

    Same, even though I'm 90% i won't get in.

    Sure... I was predicted 40 points at IB But I think I screwed up well and truly in the LNAT test for law... so I'm really worried, fingers crossed that my PS and reference make up for it

    How about you? (if you don't mind me asking)

    Really sorry for being ignorant but i don't know how your grading system translates in terms of A levels
    I am predicted 3 A at alevel
    Oh and don't get me started on the LNAT...nightmare!!

    40 points = 652 ucas points = slightly more than 6 As at A Level
    Universities dont really recognise that though - i do the ib too and its suuuper frustrating

    6 As at A level would be 720. And people doing A level don't effectively get UCAS points for all the sport, music, volunteering, etc that they do.

    No, I'm not.


    I've been using the AES thing - it still says my application is with the department. And I've been in to see the Combined Honours office, and also the French and Maths departments, and they never said anything about my combination possibly being an issue with it combining an Arts and a Science subject.
    I do Combined and there are absolutely no issues with your combination whatsoever! The university's trying to encourage people to take languages anyway!

    2 months is nothing - they haven't had all the applications yet (deadline is middle of January) so they can't really start giving out many offers until then, otherwise it's unfair on people who apply in January, and not giving everyone equal consideration is against the UCAS rules.

    Most people wait til March to here so don't panic yet! Remember that everyone's on holiday at the moment, and also it's the tutors (who also teach students and mark work) who select applicants, so the process takes a while as they can't just stop teaching to read ucas forms!

    I just checked the natural sciences website for my particular choice, and I have realised there is much less flexibility than I initially thought, but thats alright, they are good modules
    Are people generally applying to BSc or MSci natural sciences?
    which subjects are you planning on taking? Unless you want to do a Masters, your course should still be quite flexible.

    Ye I do want to do a Masters! So I will be taking Maths and Physics, I'll be happy with that pathway tbf. I was going to do the physical chemistry module too, but I can easily give that a miss.
    What about you?

    Oh cool, I guess you'll have to do only maths and physics then, but you should be able to choose some of your modules within those subjects. I do social sciences, so the same idea just in another faculty

    Woo a whole 1 module! haha, I guess that the compulsory modules are chosen to be the ones which relate to each other though, you'll probably be doing the physics-y maths modules (if there are any!)

    I'm a 2nd year, I'm doing 4 subjects this year (neither of classics or English though), not sure which ones I'll concentrate on next year yet!

    I haven't heard which college, but I applied to Chad's so I imagine I'll hear next week . . . I am planning to visit for Open Day in March.

    4 subjects is a lot? Did you do that many last year? Where are you from? I live in America.
