    i play piano, but not very well, what grade are you doing on piano, or what did you do last?
    I have applied to St Marys, which I've realised is actually quite a popular one!
    I've got grade 8 on piano, orchestral percussion, drum kit, and I did an additional snare drum grade 8 just for the heck of it! Also taking grade 8 music theory in march. This sounds like a lot but I AM applying for music so I'm supposed to have them! What about you?

    I conclude there are no news about your college change plans?
    No.

    Well, I've got a reply to the e-mail I sent out about three weeks ago, telling me to refer to Hatfield instead. Three e-mails sent and still no conclusion. :mad:

    Don't know, applied in september and nothing until yesterday when my AES changed to
    V100 History - ft
    •Your application has been received by a College
    •A decision has not yet been made. Please visit the UCAS website for further details

    So hopefully they'll make decisions soon!
    Either you are trolling or Woohoo finally some progress... I emailed the history department and they said there would be no decisions until after the Jan deadline for v100 .... If yours really has been moved to college hopefully I'll get some movement in the next week

    From what I hear you probably wont hear anything from ucas for up to a week!
    Congratulations though, you're pretty much guaranteed an offer whats your academic profile/predicted grades? Are you international?
    I'm still waiting i've applied for L1R1 Economics with French, anyone heard anything for that?

    Well, given the fact that I still haven't heard anything from Durham (my application has "not yet been received by a College"), you might not have a decent reason to change your college any more soon...

    BUT: 23 days, my dear, until we can hopefully embrace each other again!

    Oh? Did they put it on their website? Not seen any Durham offers with the A* in yet... mind you, I'd rather have a durham offer with an A* in than no Durham offer at all! :p:

    Yeah... we're not the most optimistic bunch. It's just that she's so much cleverer than all of us, so it was a massive shock to hear she'd not gotten an offer! I guess her PS just didn't have what they were looking for.


    I swear Durham said they weren't going to offer A*s and treat A* predictions as As? That might be subject specific but I swear I saw it somewhere...

    Ish. My piano isn't particularly good but I just do it because I don't have the heart to tell my teacher. I don't plan on going near a piano when I start uni.
    I've got my Grade 8 on the Sax, so I'm kinda serious. The main thing I do is play in my school's 'Swing Band' and so I'd quite like to keep swinging at uni
    ye u sound serious on sax, sounds good! lots of opportunities there!
    i play trombone too, doing my grade 8 in december, lots of opportunities there

    WOW.
    You must be the perfect student!
    Are you in a lot of ensembles?
    I'm doing grade 8 bass trombone and DipLCM Piano in December, hoping to pass them both
    they will be very hard though
    i scraped a merit on grade 8 piano

    Thanks. I don't think I'll be too heartbroken if Durham rejects me but it would be nice to have an offer that isn't quite as hard to hit as Warwick's! Nobody in my school is pinning any hopes on Durham though after they rejected the cleverest student in our year!
    I know 2 people rejected from Durham for maths.

    One is now at Oxford, the other got A*A*A* in his A-Levels and is at Warwick.

    No-one knows what Durham wants for Maths.

    I have no idea, I don't think that they'll be making A* a condition this year, there's nothing on the website to indicate that they will!

    Haha no way, she had a mock interview with an admissions tutor for Medicine at Oxford and he said based on her mock interview she'd have probably gotten a place!
    Nah, I'm sure that you best her if yours was sent to college! She was going for biochem I think.

    My AES changed to "Sent to college" on a friday. By the following Wednesday I had an offer on UCAS. So it took about 4 working days for an offer to come through. Still waiting to hear which college though, really hoping for castle!

    Oh yeah, that reminds me, Durham might start asking for A*s too, I'll have to wait and see.
    They aren't using the A* this year, it says on the website

    Hey,
    Have many people applying for combined honours in social sciences gotten offers/sent to college - reading through this thread I think I can find a few
    I sent my application off just over a month ago and not a peep!
    I'm starting to stress.... (or on the flip side has anyone been rejected yet?)

    Haha, not really! I do play in a lot of ensembles of all kinds of music, though And you?
    That's very impessive being such a high standard at your instruments when you don't even want to study music! I decided against doing any diplomas because I just wanted to find pieces I liked and play those rather than constantly finding stuff from exam lists! Is Durham one of your top choices? I'm having second thoughts about it after having such a good time in London a few days ago and reeeeally wanting to study there.

    ye after my diploma im goign to find some good pieces to play
    my mum doesnt see the point, but I do, and ill try and keep it up at uni, trying to get into a few concerts, stuff like that
    Durham is my second choice, after cambridge (hope they dont read this!!)
    I didn't like UCL, I prefer the close knit community of somewhere like Durham, and it is easier to form ensembles there

    she probably went into the interview too cocky or something like that, things happen

    Biochem must be harder than natural sciences then
