    I'm from South Africa, but have lived in Portugal for the last 2 years. I know what you mean by the identity crisis though- my parents are british, I live in Portugal but I was born in South Africa... ah well... what can you do
    haha, yea, exactly! Where in South Africa are you from? I've never been but I'd love to.
    Yea, my parents are a combination of english, american, irish, swedish and i was born in New York but moved when I was 1 1/2 to PNG and since then we've moved around about every 4 years until we ended up in Rome.
    I remember when I was about 9 someone asked me where I was from and there was just this long pause.. and I eventually came out with "..Australian!" lol, I'm not sure where that came from!

    Did this conversation start because we both applied for Hatfield? Why did you choose it? I swear it was suuuch a pro-con list thing for me and even then it was hard, all the colleges were nice!

    Got an email yesterday from NatSci director, saying that he couldn't give me an offer for Biology with Chemistry as a second subject, but if I got back to him within a week, he'd "be happy to fast-track your [my] application". All the Chemistry places are full, apparently.

    So, it sort of sounds both good and bad - I'll probably get an offer, but now I have to choose something other than Chemistry. On that subject, do any current/prospective/offer-holding NatSci people know if it's possible to combine a science with a language in the first year, doing a 3:3 or 4:2 split?
    Well I've got a provisional offer (i.e. sent to college) to do Maths and French via NatSci, with each subject making up half. I'm told that so long as at least half of your modules are taken in natural science subject(s), you can take up to half of your modules in pretty much any other field.

    From Johannesburg I know that basically every south african living abroad is from there... but hey, I'm not a very original person I love it there, just such a shame coz of the crime otherwise it would be the best country in the world .. but still it is definitly somewhere worth visiting (and I'm not saying that coz I'm from there, it really is stunning, and the people are so friendly!)

    Wow... you really are an international child.. you could put the UN to shame can understand why you're confused about your identity... still, being Australian is as good as any to be, they have an awesome accent and kangaroos what 9 year old wouldn't want to be aussie

    Yeah, I think it did because I'm pretty sure you didn't apply for law. TBH, I love old traditional things (especially the whole gown at dinner thing- I don't know why but it seems really cool! I'm strange I know) and so I knew I wanted to be in a Bailey College, and I chose Hatfield because it seemed to tick all the boxes, There wasn't one that I just didn't like, but Hatfield seemed to have a really nice atmosphere, I know its pretty oversubscribed but I thought I would take my chances. It was a pretty tough descision though tehy were all so great!, but Durham as a uni seems so nice, so I know I'll be happy wherever I end up (if I end up there)

    Why did you?

    Hi

    I got my UCAS offer yesterday for Music and I guess from this you find out your college from your letter, as mine's not under Colleges on the AES. Any ideas how long it'll take between getting the offer and getting the letter? I'm obviously too impatient but I'd love to know

    Must have been very reassuring for your first offer!
    I applied to Oxford, UCL, KCL and Exeter as well. Rejection from Oxford, offer from Exeter and nothing from the others, so I'm waiting on those before I decide
    No idea how I'd ever decide if either of the others gave me an offer, I'm the most indecisive person
    What about you?

    Congrats! Well done. Your first offer from your first choice - great stuff. You did well to keep sane in the meantime though - respect!
