    Nah I applied for Physics which seems ALOT less competitive compared to what you guys are applying for !

    What did you apply for? I can't believe they waited this long just to reject a ton of people, I was annoyed with durham for waiting until the 7th march to reject me but waiting until April to be rejected from what could be you first choice must be soul destroying ....

    So sorry to hear about everyones rejections, I will make sure I give the english/philosphy/geography departments evils when i turn up in october !
    Wow, physics? That sounds interesting/intense :p:eek<--intense hehe).

    I applied for geography too, same although I can understand why... up to a point - if they're so oversubscribed I guess they have to give out offers very carefully so that they get the right numbers. I'm sorry about Durham and yes it was well, I had three first choices and this was the one I was relying on after the other two rejected me as well. I'm sorry to hear about your friend getting rejected by the way-I don't think I said this before.

    Haha, yay - they should feel the burn of your glare and well done for getting in

    I think you may have a point there, what gets me is that they haven't even sent an email with it (or at least not to me), I don't know if it's a question of not caring but they should really think about what this waiting does to people...

    Congratulations, Durham is lovely! What college? Good luck with your exams then, my friends who got in loved it too.

    Well, I have two offers - Exeter and Birmingham - I appreciate they are both very good universities but I just don't know if I want to go there (that sounds bad). It's just that I loved Bristol's course and those of my other choices. Ah well
    I agree, I just couldn't believe that after all this time, all I got was an "unsuccessful" on UCAS. Perhaps they'll send a letter but I'm not holding my breath.

    Exeter and Birmingham are great universities. I applied to the Cornwall campus. I loved the course and the place but it was just too far away for me (minimum of 7 hours). I hear the main campus is great though. If I'd known how Bristol was going to turn out I might have applied there instead because it would have made a better insurance.

    I really hope you like where you end up. Have you got any more chances to visit?

    I just got a letter saying "Official notification of this decision will be available on UCAS track within the next few days" Hmm...

    Thank you, I loved the geography with environmental management course at Cornwall, but as I hadn't visited I didn't want to risk it 7 hours? What part of Britain do you live in? The campus there is lovely, I'm just not sure about the course. I'll probably have to visit them again I guess! Thank you, I hope you enjoy Durham or wherever you go, it does look amazing.

    I don't even think that Geography is THAT over subscribed at Bristol I was told 17:1 which is a lot better than the 47:1 I heard for subjects like economics. They're rated 2nd for Geography, above Oxford, which makes them think they can treat people any way they like.

    I am so sorry for everyone who really wanted to go there and got rejected. Probably doesn't seem like it now, but I'm sure you'll be happy wherever you go x
    I was told at the post offer open day that the ratio this year was 23:1

    Bristol is well known for its student life etc. and is very student friendly, so no worries there. When I went there for an open day, it seemed quite a pleasant place to be at and I'm fortunate enough to have Bristol down as my insurance choice. UCL and Bristol simply have reputations as very good universities and both are difficult to get into. You can look them up in the world league tables, bearing in mind their questionable reliability. The differences in standing between UCL, Bristol, LSE, and Oxbridge are slim. Don't worry!
    Are you studying at Bristol next year?! You're from Germany ! I was just thinking about whether Bristol had a good reputation in Germany (my google search led me to this forum) because I want to get my Master's in Germany!! I will be double majoring in Philosophy and German at Bristol if I decide to go

    That said, what is Bristol's reputation in Germany (in your experience)? My other top choices are KCL and UCL, but neither Uni. will let me study German; however, I could take an evening language class (yuck :/) if I choose to go to either school...

    I told myself that I would leave uni. with fluency in a 2nd language (I'm embarrassed to know only English O.o), and I don't think KCL/UCL will be helpful in that respect (who could possibly learn anything from an evening class?? Languages require a little more effort than that!)...

    Danke schön

    It is, I'm really annoyed that I've had to wait like 5 and a half months for that decision.
    I'm probably going to King's College London to do Spanish with English though now (:

    Hope you get an offer my love

    Applied to Bristol for Politics and Economics in October. Got an Offer in November I was pretty happy about that considering I got rejected from Oxford 3 days earlier.
    Actually happy would be an understatement.
    Hi, congratulations on your offer. What grades are they asking for?

    Thank you =) .

    If it was any other place, I'd have given up by now and withdrawn. But I would really, REALLY like Bristol to be my insurance...

    At least you have a plan ^^ .
