    Just a quick question, does anyone know if, when you're replying to offers, if you can choose your firm and insurance separately? Or if you have to reply to your firm and insurance at the same time?

    Because I know I'm *definitely* firming Durham but I'm not so sure about an insurance...

    Otherwise, if anyone could give me any reasons to choose either Manchester or Sheffield for my insurance, go for it! (and would be much appreciated).
    You have to do them at the same time, unfortunately.

    Okay, I changed my application to a different department last week, but on AES it's still showing up as 'Combined Honours in Arts'. Should I phone up AES and ask them to change? (The course code on Track only changed on Friday)
    I'd probably say ring admissions, they'll be able to solve / put you in contact with whoever the relevant person is.
    What have you changed it to now then?

    Ah awesome. From people who go there? I've never seen it and I don't know anyone who has. I am going in February but I'm just so keen to firm Durham now!

    I've applied for Geography. Both unis have excellent courses for Geography and, even though Manchester is further down the league tables than Sheffield, when I saw Manchester I thought the department was excellent so I'm trying to block league tables out of my decision making .
    It depends what their offers are and how well they fit with what you think you might get. I know someone who got into Manchester with quite low grades for Geography so I don't know if that's any indication of how good it is.

    Also, I'd check the National Student Survey for student satisfaction ratings. A lot of people want to go to Manchester because of the social aspects but I heard that students on some courses are not particularly happy.

    St John's appeared under my "Useful links" (in the AES) today, so looks like I got into my first choice, according to the other posts on this thread! Excellent...
    Awesome! Another future Johnian. And another mature student to boot! Congratulations!

    You mean they've already filled up for classics? Or that they're just oversubscribed in general?

    Thanks. I got my offer at the beginning of November, and then was confirmed by castle at the end of November.

    Excellent - my letter from Castle came through today

    I'd really like to go on the open day, but I've got a dress rehearsal that day and my best friend (who's in the same production) is going as well :cool:
    I really don't want to see the director's face when we tell her (or even be in the same country, to be quite honest)!
