    Oh my gosh, I know! I literally rewrote my conclusion in 2 mins, my other one was awkward and didn't work. Not a good sign though :/ and lucky! I need it for my two faves, Oxford and Bristol, hence I'm having nightmares of being rejected from both! D:
    I ended up rewriting my introduction in the last 2 minutes! never typed so fast in my life :O

    Applying for Bristol again after missing my offer last year. Different subject and have been told by head of Geoscience I would "probably get a place this year" and would have done last year.

    Hopeful.

    Applying for Classical Studies. The talk on the open day opened my eyes a bit to how ridiculously competitive it is, but I'm hopeful, it's such a nice university & department! And I'm a bit of a sucker for Banksy, haha.

    Yeah Bristol is pretty damn competitive. Nearly 10 applicants to each place for your subject, 17 applicants per place for mathematics. :eek:

    The figures really aren't reassuring, are they? Haha. Especially with how competitive it's going to be this year in particular! Good luck though!

    I take a bit of comfort in the lady there telling us about how there is always a handful of people who apply thinking 'Classical' refers to Charles Dickens & Jane Austen rather than text from ancient Greece & Rome.
    A bit of competition wiped out just there then. :awesome:

    My (hopeful) guess is that a lot don't meet the requirements / are not of serious competition. It's different for oxbridge where it's 6 apps per place for psychology, however of those 6 almost all will be of a serious high level, and it's easy to assume it's the same for every other uni we're applying to, however, I doubt and hope that it's not.
