    hey guysh. I've got an English offer for deferred entry in 2012 but I've been told my college will "contact me shortly" in order to confirm which college has accepted me. I've had my offer for about a week now and was wondering if anyone else knows how long it takes to get confirmation from a college?
    On the website it says you should hear from a college within three weeks, I'm in the same position haha. What college did you specify?

    I'm pretty sure they don't, seem to remember reading that on their website.
    :yep: But I guess that's what attracted me to it!
    ye, i would be annoyed if we did need to be interviewed though cuz it is so far away!

    Did anyone else get the offer/congratulatory e-mail from the actual Durham admissions office (not UCAS) this afternoon? UCAS told me about my offer last tuesday but the e-mail from the actual university has only just arrived lol.

    Yeah, it'll take around 2 1/2 - 3 hours to Durham from Bristol I think, not really too keen on hauling myself out of bed that early to make the interview!

    Yeah just got it lol and I've had an offer for over a week. I saw Durham in the subject line and for a second I thought it was going to be them telling me which college I was allocated to.

    Haha yeaaah I'm much the same. It wasn't as if I was gonna be able to get out to any open days so I figured there must be a reason for why castle was so oversubscribed and after reading some student reviews thought why not =P I hope if I don't wind up there though I'm at either Hatfield or Trevelyan though just having a place anywhere is enough for me =]
