    My offer still hasn't disappeared
    I don't think they are giving out any A* offers which is a relief!
    Though the A in further maths is still pretty tricky to get, so I'm gonna have to work hard to get it!
    Have you started revising?
    They sent me an email today to say it was a technical error...phew Panic over ha. Erm, I've sort of started on my biology and chemistry. I'm trying to do little bits every night. What about you?

    Yeah, only like one line something like "despite a difficult family life..." and accompanied it with a letter explain what happened and why/how it affected my studies etc. Yeah Durham is my favourite with Bristol being my second, I got an offer from both of those within the space of 5 mins which surprised me! But the departmental open days in Feb/March will decide which one to go to for me

    I applied to Josephine Butler, purely because of the self catering aspect and the single room too. And it's a stones throw away from Politics lectures too.

    What have you applied to do?
    That's great, Bristol rejected me for Politics! Must have been personal statement or something which seems a bit mad but nevermind. I applied to Castle for single honours Politics, it's my second choice after Cambridge but getting in there is so unlikely that Durham is pretty much my top choice hahah. The only downside of Durham is that it is so so far from where I live, but other than that it's perfect. I hoooope they don't reject me, I'll cry Hahah.

    Dear Applicant

    We have identified a technical problem today which means that details of some of our conditional offers have disappeared from UCAS track.

    If this has affected your record, please accept our sincere apologies and be reassured that your conditional offer from us still stands. Staff in our technical team are currently working on the problem to ensure that your conditions are restored on UCAS Track as quickly as possible.

    We hope that this work will be completed by the end of this week. If you have any queries after this date regarding the terms of your offer, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0191 334 6128 or by e-mail at [email protected]

    Kind regards

    Liz Dodds
    Head of Admissions
    Durham University

    Quoted for attention

    Well at least you didn't have to watch the michigan wisconsin game :mad:

    That's funny, I only lived there from 2 to 10...so missed out on all the stereotypes. Although I ran into a huge group from carmel about a year ago, and picked up on that.

    Now that there's a midwestern girl who plays dodgeball, Durham is definitely my firm .

    I'm 90% positive I'll end up at Durham. LSE (even if they give me an offer) can't compete with the experience I'll have. And since I'm set on working in London upon graduation, I'd rather live in London where I'll have my own income and can actually enjoy the city.
    Holy crap, we have to start a dodgeball team. But I'm also taking bowling at the moment (because I'm a Senior and I do what I want:cool:), and my average is steadily climbing...

    Yeah, I think Durham is pretty much it for me, unless Cambridge gives me an offer. But even then, I don't know if I'd say yes.

    As a fellow American I feel compelled to jump in and say that dodgeball was a staple of my middle/high school PE experience and you can put me down as the third member of this team haha.

    So I got an unconditional offer for History through UCAS on Friday... seeing as my campus code said "U" I presumed I was in to Castle, plus my AES changed to say a decision had been made - so it's not just that the department has made a decision, but a college has too.

    However, Durham just emailed to say congrats on my offer, and they'd let me know my college soon.

    So... I guess I have to temporarily suspend the rejoicing? Does this mean I'm not necessarily in at Castle? Their system confuses me!

    I'm sure you'll be fine. Although applying to castle is a risk isn't it? I'm sure it is the most applied for? If not they'll probably move you to another though... Hopefully see you in seminars in the future! tim x

    Yeahh it's a bit of a pain unfortunately. Basically what it means is that the department has made you an offer and now that that's happened it's been sent to castle as that was your specified choice. If college looks at you and decides to make you an offer you'll get a letter in the post, otherwise you'll be forwarded onto a second college that was specified by the department at the time of their accepting your application.

    Sooo in short no, it means you're not necessarily at Castle. But one way we've found that we think helps to cheat the system a bit is go and look under your personal links section and the first heading should be colleges, what does it say under there?

    Thanks for the help

    Under colleges it says "colleges", rather helpfully. Like:

    Colleges
    Colleges

    Yeah I figured all that, I was just confused by the fact that I have been accepted by a college according to AES ("A decision has been made" rather than it just being passed to college), and the fact that campus code is still "U". Do you know what happens here? Does it just change if it's another college in the end?

    Yo bro let me know when you get a letter in the post. I'm trying to gauge how long it'll take to get from the UK to the US. If my calculations are correct, we should get something this week.

    When you get allotted to a college, instead of just saying "colleges" under links, it'll say the college you were alloted. So (ideally) in your case it would come up as:

    Colleges
    Successful applicants will receive confirmation of their college via UCAS track
    University College
    Colleges

    If you check AES daily, you'll know a few days before you receive the letter in the post by checking under links.

    I don't think it really lessens your chance of getting a Durham offer, you're just less likely to get into your college of choice. I was hoping for an early offer so I'd get into Castle before it filled up (not going well so far haha).

    I know! Dodgeball gets such a bad rap because lame parents think it's too rough for their babies, but it's those skinny quiet kids you have to watch out for. They're the ones with like four balls behind their back.
