    Ah cool I think I'm going - depends as I have mocks then (but I'll get out of them )
    Ha I havent bothered to ask my college, I'm sure they'll be fine with it! They'd best be anyway, we've paid the £30 now and £60 for train tickets too!

    Ahh is that monday to tuesday?

    On the map Collingwood sent me, it shows the train station is right next to the university. Is this the main train station in Durham? As in, if I buy a train ticket to 'Durham', will the train stop at the station outside the uni?
    Hi, sorry to butt in, but just to warn you, the train station isn't right next to the university. It's definitely 'in Durham', maybe a 15 minute walk from the centre of Durham, but to Collingwood I'd say it would be at least a half an hour walk. But yeah, technically, 'Durham' is the station that serves the uni (and it costs about 4 quid to get a cab from the station to the science site, where Collingwood is) Hope that helped

    Unlucky man. I will no doubt be joining you in a few days. I wish they'd just hurry up.
    Can I ask what your grades were/what you're predicted? If I convince myself I never had a chance in the first place, it won't be that much of a let down
    Yours are definetly better than mine, I got ABBB for AS (no further maths either )

    Predicted AAAB by teachers however I feel I'm capable of A*AAB or A*A*AB

    I think they must of liked my PS as I made it this far with not the best AS grades, what are your grades like?

    Just got my rejection today for Physics MPhys, kinda wish I had applied for the BSc now, might have had more of a chance.

    I just wish they had replied earlier so I could focus on my making a decision on my other offers :/

    Same for me I applied for BSc and it didn't save me

    I agree with the earlier decision, I got my hopes a little when I'd made it into march...

    AAAAB in chemistry, physics, geology, German and maths, + an A in gen.studies (AS levels). Crucially, my B was in maths (high Bs in C1 and C2 and a mediocre A in D1 meant I missed my A by 4 marks!!!). I don't think Bs in the maths pure units will impress anyone.
    Predicted A* in chem (like that's going to happen!) and AA in maths and physics, and my GCSEs weren't too shabby, so maybe they'll let me slip through.
    On the other hand, having re-read my perosnal statement, it doesn't exactly have the wow factor. My references were good, but I think my maths grades and my PS could let me down.
    I wish I'd applied for Bristol. Didn't realise how good they are for physics until recently. Once I get my Durham rejection It'll be Warwick as my firm and York as my insurance.

    Yeahhh really I'm completely freaking out about the whole concept haha. I do IB and so I've been trying to calculate exactly what I need to get on each exam to make/surpass the offer. It's absolutely doing my head in. What was your offer?

    My letter for the open days said they were running a bus service from the train station to the hill colleges between certain times in the evenings before the open days.

    As far as I'm aware that's the Durham train station. It's not rare for me to be completely wrong though haha

    You're already doing all three?? That's so cool, jealous I wish I were going to the open day but unfortunately it's quite a long flight from DC to Durham, quite pricy too. So although I've never been there I'm just kinda hoping it'll suit, I'm sure it will.
