    I did an open app as well and then when I got the offer, I talked to the Dept Head and before I was told which college I was allocated to, I asked if they would allocate me to St Chad's--Dept Head called the President of St Chad's and next thing, I was in.
    Omg haha same! my application has been sent somewhere but i haven't been allocated.. so i sent a very nice e-mail to my department to ask if i could be allocated to hatfield. I guess it depends on the kindness of the person and if they can be bothered to change it.. lets wait and see Well done!

    Yeah, I haven't got an email reply but checking the aes thing, it's on to recieved by college, so just waiting to hear from them and find out what college I get in to. Is Durham your first choice? You are applying to super similar choices to me (Cambridge reject, Durham, Nottingham, Bath)
    Maybe I'll see you in October if we both get in.
    Well, my offer came through this morning, so it looks like yours should be doing something similar. It's looking like Durham's first for me at the moment, but I'll be checking everything I've got on everywhere I've applied before firming anything, I think.

    It's definitely not the smallest, that's Chad's! It's medium sized...tends to get fewer applications than most colleges as it's quite far up the hill (but everywhere's near in Durham so it's still not far away, just a 25-min walk into town rather than a 5 or 10 min walk), and has more shared rooms than the avg hill college.

    Go to the open day and you'll probably love it

    Yes and yes, I don't know too much about the community but the people I know from aiden's didn't apply there (their original choice colleges were full) but still love it, it just takes a little while to get used to walking up all those steps!

    I think it's pretty much a party college, their formals are themed fancy dress rather than in gowns and their balls have involved food fights a few times, but obviously there will be a complete mix of people there so there'll be some quieter people too!

    My offer came through this morning as well Just waiting to hear from a college really. I'm pretty much deciding between Durham and Nottingham for first choice and the other one second choice. They are both AA offers (I already have an A* in Maths because I did it a year early) but Durham want the As in Biology and Further Maths, seeing as I'm taking Bio and Maths for the course and Nottingham want them in Bio and Chem, seeing as I probably don't need further maths to do the course. I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to get an A in Furhter maths but if I work hard :/
    It's nice to have the offer come through at last though :clap2:

    Does anybody have any idea when maths decisions will be released?

    I have read one possible offer back in December and a recent unsuccessful, but thats all.

    Also, generally does AES progress to 'with College' before any decisions are sent out (ie is it worth checking that as well as incoming email)?

    Thanks in advance

    I got into Durham NatSci.... again!!!!!!!!!!!! (It was my firm last year and I missed their offer :O )

    I was so scared that they would reject me straight off since I'm a retake student, so I'm so happy!!!!

    I basically only retook this year so that I could have another chance at getting into Durham's NatSci program so seriously this is like the pinnacle of goodness in my entire life

    I've seen very few maths offers.

    My application has just been sent to college, but nothing on UCAS so far. I think the AES generally updates to 'recieved by college' before the offer is confirmed on UCAS, but there have been a few exceptions. Depends how much you want to know the decision really, you might find out that little bit earlier if you check AES.

    Hi I got my offer from Durham last week

    And yesterday, because I left my college preference blank, they allocated me St. Aidens College.

    Any opinions about it? Would I be able to change it if I didn't like it?

    Thanks

    Ye on the 22nd of March to stay overnight. But I havent sent them a letter back yet :/ are you planning to go?

    From what I know about St Aidans from my research:
    1. The smallest college
    2. Redone recently so good accomodation
    3. One of the Hill colleges
    4. Has a reputation for being a party college (dont quote me on that since I heard this from the forums here)
    It's one of the bigger ones, good for sports it looks like. I'll be joining the rowing squad so i hope it's a good rowing college! apparently collingwood is the best for that though. No mine was open, didnt really have a preferance at the time and everyone seems to love their own more than any others, but I like the look of it, looks a bit more casual than the others.

    Still waiting, but my AES updated from received by department to received by college over a week ago. How long did it take for you? Oh and what college offer did you get?

    OH!!! The AES status has changed today to 'Application received by College, a decision has yet to be made'. That means the maths department is going to make an offer???
