    hiii i see you're doing zoology! just out of interest what A-levels did you get? i really want to go to leeds!

    Hey So I'm assuming you are doing zoology as well?

    My offer last year was BBB (my subjects were bio, chem and maths) And in the end I got ABC (A in bio, B in maths, C in chem). So I think I was actually very lucky to get in...actually was very lucky to even get an offer after getting ACDE at AS and only being predicted ACC :/ Mind you up until year 12 I had wanted to do veterinary, so also had a lot of work experience.

    What subjects are you doing and what are your predicted grades?

    Sorry it took me so long to get back!

    Newcastle is my first choice at the moment but Leeds is a close second..... haven't heard anything from either of them yet

    Thats ok it normally takes me twice as long to get back to people :P

    And what are your subjects/predicted grades? I'm sure you will here something soon!

    I've applied for this scheme too, but I doubt that they'll lower my grades because I'm predicted the grades required for the course! Plus, I'm only eligible for two of the things-and one of those is probably only a squeeze for my eligibilty!

    What course are you applying for?
    Ahh, well hopefully you can get a lower offer! I have 3 of the things so looks like I'll be able to get a lower offer. Applying for geography and politics, how about you?

    I'm doing Biology, Chemistry and Psychology and predicted A*AB, but tbh that's never going to happen!
    And fingers crossed about hearing something (positive!) soon

    Well I'm sure you will here something back from Leeds. I got predicted ACC and still got an offer Although my offer was 3 Bs and I got ABC but still got in

    Your grades are a lot better than mine were so I would be very surprised if you didn't get an offer.

    I feel sorry for you that you are currently in the middle of A-level chemistry. Reminds me of last year where most of my chemistry lessons were spend contemplating suicide. How I got a C I will never know.

    Recived a conditional offer on the 17th Nov, 8 days after I sent it

    Classical Civilisation Q820 with an offer of ABB (a little on the low side, which i won't question) and no interview, yayyy.

    got a departmental visit day on the 1st Dec, can't wait.

    Anyone else similar?

    Aah cool, sounds good! Hopefully you'll get a lower offer then! I've applied for History of Art on the scheme but also History of Art and Museum Studies (not on the A2L scheme), so quite nervous about the interviews next month!

    Good luck with your application!

    did you have any work experience? they really penalise people for not mentioning they've had work exp. Also could have been cause they were tough on judging your personal statement

    Got a conditional offer for Linguistics and Phonetics today
    They raised the grades though - it says ABB on the website and the prospectus, but they offered me AAA. Has this happened to anyone else?
    Argh! I can't believe that.. I'm quite worried for myself now :eek:

    They're probably testing you, it's good they believe that you can get those grades though. When did you send your ucas off?

    thats really weird. they should've at least given you an interview. definitely ask for feedback, cause that's quite worrying. have you heard back from any other unis?
