    No St Andrews is my top choice now and I'm not really sure which of Bristol and Exeter I prefer... Exeter is more suited to me but I think I prefer Bristol's course so :dontknow: I was going to ask you but didn't you say you weren't sure which you like best? Have you had any more thoughts? (Or am I getting you confused with someone else?!)

    Stalking last year's thread = awesome idea. I wouldn't be surprised if they start later this year though what with all the extra competition we have to put up with

    You have some pretty awesome offers so you shouldn't be disappointed! And that is very wise re. grades - there's a reason I didn't apply anywhere that normally asks for anything above AAA
    Haha yep thats me, I am unsure but at the moment Im leaning towards Warwick. I think it would be a good idea to accept a lower offer to take the pressure off a bit as I do have M.E (chronic fatigue syndrome) and am unsure I'll even get AAA. Obviously working my butt off would be worth it for Cam but alas it wasnt meant to be. I live in Cornwall and applied to Exeter because it was close to home but now im wondering if its too close lol?! Strange I know :rolleyes:

    Will definitely be going to all 3 post offer open days (hopefully a fourth if I get bristol, fingers crossed...) so hopefully that'll help. I wish you TONNES of luck with St.Andrews x

    Omg that must be really hard with ME - I have a vague idea of what it's like as I was on medication in the summer which made me ridiculously tired and I found it such a struggle to do well in my exams! Presumably at Cambridge you're only assessed through exams though? Maybe it is for the best so you don't have so much stress when it comes to uni exams if they're not worth 100% of your grade. Idk but I wish you the best of luck with your exams

    I totally understand about wanting to go somewhere a bit further away - all the unis I applied to are pretty far away, St Andrews takes about 9 hrs to get to from where I live :eek: Thank you for the luck, and good luck to you for Bristol and also with choosing where to go!

    Yeah I couldnt bear to be that far from home, although now I wish Id considered a few unis further away, as its really just a mental thing. I suppose Id visit home the same amount of times regardless!

    Yeah being continously tired is one of the worst things, madness. Let me know when you hear from St.Andrews

    Nothing since the acknowledgement in December. They might be waiting until after the deadline. I'm very happy not to have been rejected yet, though

    Anyone had an offer for Geography (BSc or MSci?) yet? I'm hoping they're not asking for AAA as I want Bristol to be my insurance. Has anyone been asked for anything less?

    Nice! You've received an offer from KCL??????? Then whats your Firm?

    Nope I haven't, waiting on LSE/KCL! Hopefully get at least one!
    Haha no I haven't gotten a KCL offer (unfortunately)! They normally ask for AAA, so unless they miraculously reduce their offer to AAB, I wouldn't put KCL as Insurance (they've asked for AAAB for some!:eek:) Firming Oxford.

    Good luck for LSE (no hope for me there - rejected very early on) and KCL!! I'm sure you'll get at least one of them! Where else have you applied to?

    I did IB and I got an offer for 37/45 points overall and to have 6/7 in Higher Level English, Maths, Physics and Geography what was quite demanding and much higher than I expected after reading their website and prospectus.

    Good luck for your with Imperial. I missed my firm offer by one point and I got rejected, but last year was special :P Good luck!

    Did you firm Imperial too? Looks like I'm gonna miss my Imperial offer this year because of how complex it is so
    Bristol was the best insurance

    thankyouu!
    Erm I'm not sure yet, I have an offer from York and an interview at Birmingham, and havn't heard from Edinburgh yet. I've never been to York or Bristol so I need to have a look at them so I can try and decide!

    Have you applied for music?
