    I applied back in October and I haven't heard anything yet

    For all those who have received offers, when your AES updated, were you sent an email or did you find out by constantly checking your AES?

    I'm driving myself crazy checking my AES all the time!
    Don't drive yourself crazy! According to noodlzz AES updates around midnight everyday so just check around then or in the morning.

    I've got an offer for History at Grey And I'm going on the 21st/22nd, how about you?
    Hey! I'm going on the 22nd... I'd have liked to stay over on the 21st but I'm at work unfortunately. One thing I'm confused about... it says that tours start from 2pm for people who haven't stayed over the night before, but my Law open day finishes at 4pm?! No idea if I just turn up at like 4pm... :/

    And does anyone know if we're allowed to bring guests to the departmental open days?

    Well my AES told me that a college had been passed my application, (after frantic checking) but it was actually UCAS who got to me first. I got my email from UCAS telling me an offer had been made for me about five days before AES actually told me that the college had made a decision so I think it just differs?!

    But yes, AES isn't updated in real time. It's updated on a daily basis so I wouldn't drive yourself crazy checking... (although that IS slightly hypocritcal of me as I still did that, whislt knowing it updated daily. hahaha

    Not sure what you'd do then, maybe email the college and ask if you can have a tour after the open day.. I'm sure they'd give you one And I don't think guests can come to the actual department stuff but I think there's a talk for parents if that helps?

    I might email them after they've replied me with their confirmation email Ah, I'm dead nervous about going by myself! All my other open day offers have asked me to bring guests! :/

    Hi, I'm Grey too (for history) I don't see many other Grey people on here so I thought I'd say hi Open days are 22nd/23rd March and you can stay in the college the night before if you want. Do you think you'll go?
    Im grey too, feeling slightly nervous about the open day/ night haha :s

    Aw... at least I'm local I suppose, I'm from Newcastle so it's not that far for me People will be nice I suppose, everyone's in the same boat after all!

    Aw I'm so jealous you're so near, it's gonna take me 3 hours on the train/6 hours driving if I ever attempt it to get there.. I don't think anyone will really know eachother, hope not anyway Just gotta be brave and introduce yourself, even if it is awkward at first!

    Hi, what's your subject? I'm nervous too, but exicted Not sure what I'll do for the night bit, apparently you can choose whether to stay in college or go out (clubbing I think)... I'll be 18 but not sure I want to go out (and possibly be hungover for the open day the next day). Plus clubbing's not exactly my thing... Just nervous about meeting people and stuff?

    Snap, provided they have space Might see you there then... Seeing as you've got an offer from Cambridge (I remmber you from the Cambridge threat ) will you have Durham as your insurance or somewhere else?
    I'm 90% Durham for my insurance. Yep may well do.. any idea what we do on this open day?

    Ah.. just seen your posts about this to other people. I'm gonna be 18 as well, but not sure on the clubbing front. Exciting though

    Apparently there is hardly a clubbing scene in Durham anyway? I suspect everyone will just go to pubs instead.

    No, I haven't. The offer came through just last night. Today they sent me an e-mail saying it'd take about three weeks until I hear from my college. I don't know whether it'll be via e-mail, otherwise it might even take a little longer as letters from the UK usually take about a week to reach me.
    I know my memory is awful, what was your college again? And what's your first choice at the moment?
    St. Chad's and Durham is in front. Getting excited about March open day.

    You can be rejected after your app gets to a college, but it doesn't seem to happen too frequently.

    AES says this about it: 'Please note that occasionally some applications are unsuccessful despite being sent to a college as the University is restricted in the number of home offers it can make and is committed to ensuring that departments and colleges do not make too many offers. Occasionally, a department may inadvertently make a few too many offers, as our monitoring systems are updated on a daily basis rather than in real-time. These applications are recalled within the University and, even though the AES may have shown that an application has been passed to a college for consideration, the University will not be in a position to make an offer and an unsuccessful decision will be recorded at UCAS.'
    Haha I'll rather go with what the site says. makes me feel safe
    Since you're trying so hard with your pessimistic views to get me off the course.

    Update on Biomed Offers:

    From what I can tell the following have had offers and colleges allocated:

    Stevo:
    Wailinza (yes)
    MessyRoom
    RadioHawk
    Mooniibuggy (no) - insurance

    John Snow:
    JCornwell

    Be great to see how many others there are that have had offers and colleges allocated??

    I've also just booked to go to the open day on the 16th March. Who else is going - stick a yes next to your name?

    At the moment, I feel I have picked the right A levels and dont think I would enjoy any others more, I would probably just do additional further maths and finish my media studies A level (don't mock, I did the AS in year 11 and it was fun!)
    Is this recital for a diploma? I'm just learning Rachmaninoffs Gminor prelude and Chopins E minor waltz which I hope I can master
    I love all my subjects but I absolutely loved GCSEs and wish I could do them all at A level! And no, I don't mock media studies! i'm sure it was enormous fun!

    Nope, just for A level Music. We have to do a 20 minute solo recital based around a theme - mine being 'the development of solo piano music between the classical and romantic eras' hence Mozart -> Beethoven -> Chopin

    You only really need to do grade 6 stuff, but you get better marks doing harder stuff! (as long as I can play it all perfectly by May... :rolleyes: What's your recital for?

    Yeah well clubbing music's not my favourite but I'm up for dancing with a couple of ciders down me Still, might not be the best idea before a 9am start the next day Might be nicer just to get to know people in college. I'm exicted too, but also a bit nervous

    So are you taking the train then? I wouldn't want to drive, you'll be exhausted before the day even begins! I hope they don't! I can only imgaine the awkwardness bound to transpire on that day! xD

    Yeah... Durham isn't big on the club scene... if on there at all. If people are big clubbers, best venture into Newcastle/Sunderland

    Yep, going up and back down on the train, but if I end up going there (which I want to do) then I'll have to drive up at some point with parents seeing as I can't drive.. It'll be a bit awkward either way, but like you said, everyone's in the same boat and fingers crossed everyone will be nice
