    Hi guys, New to the Student Room..

    I got in my opinion pretty average GCSE Results 3A*'s (one of which was History) 6A's and 2B's - At AS I got 3 A's and 1 B

    Applied for Straight History for Durham, York, Exeter, Southampton and UEA.
    Got offers from UEA, Southampton, York, an alternative offer from Exeter to the one I actually wanted and waiting on Durham still

    I sent my UCAS Application off on the 14th October and still no reply from Durham... what are the chances of an offer?
    I really wouldn't worry! One of my best friends has applied for straight history with 3 As and a B at AS and 9 A*s and an A at GCSE and still hasn't heard anything!
    On the other hand I know some people that have already been rejected so take it as a good thing they still have your app! X

    durhams is one of the most competetive unis and history is one of the most competetive courses at durham. its certainly possible your personal statement and reference would have to be exceptional. i cant say if youre in with a good chance or not so flick through this thread and see what grades other history rejects this year got. good luck and dont worry exeter and york are amazing unis

    The letter I got from Durham after UCAS told me about my offer said that they should let you know within about 3 weeks of that letter being sent.
    So I've still got till about the 10th I think.. but I'm still checking my email obsessively!

    congrats on your offer btw

    Just got an offer for Law (AAA). Still haven't told me my college yet. I applied for Castle though, on the vague chance I'd actually get in.

    Have lots of people heard for History yet? I sent my application off in early October and am starting to get disheartened by logging onto AES and seeing 'Your application has not yet been received by a college'...
