    Want to go to Castle. Applied to St John's on a whim but had intended on Castle all along, really.
    I am hoping that I *MAY* be all right with it, as I have not been allocated a college yet, and most people don't get decisions until after Christmas.

    Do you think it's a futile attempt?

    Hmmm....it is a risk.

    I mean if you weren't to get castle, would you be willing to settle with something other than St. Johns? If so, then go for it.

    I think it is worth waiting to get allotted to St. Johns, and then asking to see if you can get your application forwarded to castle. I've seen someone do it that way on here.

    aw, that sounds fantastic!

    in my AH maths class we have 'cake tuesday' and one day, this guy made a cake that had written on it ' square root of negative 1 over square root of 64 ' (but not in words obviously!) and it had us all in stitches for aaages!

    edit: it simplifies to ' i over 8 ' (i overate!) for those non-maths types

    Not really, no. St John's and Castle were the only ones that arrested my interest, really.
    It is too late now anyhow, as the e-mail has been sent. One can only hope for a decent outcome.
    Congratulations on your offer, incidentally! :cool:

    I DO....

    I have Math HL and am working on the IA II right now
    Oh dear my heart goes out to you =/

    I've been panicking over my chemistry writeups and practicals haha. I did math studies because I didn't need any maths for my course haha, so I'm lucky my coursework was quite easy.

    There are universities where you can study for straight degrees in each of the subjects, but at Durham they choose to combine them. I don't really see how you can say it isn't a course...?

    Ecology is the study of how organisms interact with their environment, behaviour is the study of how organisms act in general and evolution is pretty self-explanitory. They are all related fields and a degree which combines all of them would be very usefull.

    ahhh, I can't keep checking this thread it's doing my head in!

    Didn't get rejected for politics yesterday in that batch but really feel for everyone who did. I only achieved 2A*s 9As at GCSE, 5As at AS and predicted A*AA at A2, so it's safe to say that people a lot better than me got rejected. I suppose it's only a matter of when I get rejected now, got an offer at York though so atleast I have that, but Durham was always my first choice.

    Good luck all!

    I'm sorry to hear that! If you go to Durham you'll just have to make a lot of friends that go to Castle and stay there for most of your time!

    Thank you . I think I shall do that, or just learn to love the college to which I have been allocated, as I heard the vast majority of people end up perfectly content with their college in the end.
    Congratulations on your offer! :cool:

    Yep, I'm sure everyone grows to love their college and get quite protective of it! I've not visited Durham though and I chose my college at the very last minute seeing as I submitted my UCAS, then decided I did like Durham lots more than Nottingham and I would regret not applying, and switched to Durham with about 1 day to spare!

    ^^ Thank you! Congrats on your offer too although can't say I'm surprised with your grades!
