    There's a reasonable chance I'll be firming it if I don't get an offer from Liverpool. I'm not sure how much I'd enjoy it there though, I think I'd much rather go to Liverpool.
    haha, I had this same dilemma last year. After getting an offer from hyms and having a liverpool interview I was certain if i got an offer for liverpool i was going to firm it. When i did eventually get the offer I ended up choosing hyms instead I have no regrets.

    Oh wow, that's pretty odd!

    Are you at Hull or York? I'm a bit concerned that I'll find them a bit boring, as I'd quite like to be in a big city with lots to do. It's good that you enjoy it though

    Im at hull, yh the city was one of my concerns too but its really not bad at all. Coming from London i dont feel that im really missing out on that much clubs wise etc, maybe more so shopping wise. Make sure you visit Hull, york and liverpool to help with your decision

    I am thinking of applying to HYMS but was unsure whether my grades are good enough to get in.

    GCSE: 5A*s 2As 1B 1C
    Maths: A*
    Science Double Award: A*A*
    English Language: A*
    Chinese: A*
    Economics: A
    Business and Communication: A
    Design and Tech: B
    English Literature: C

    I am currently doing IB and am expecting to get around 36 points excluding bonus points (6s in all subjects).

    Also, what GCSE and IB grades do successful applicants usually get?

    Thanks

    It says on their website that 'You must have an overall total of 36 points, with 6,6,5 in three Higher-level subjects, including Biology and Chemistry'. Does that mean getting 36 points will very likely get me an interview?

    No, since that's the minimum. You also need to check the gcse requirements. And will also depend on your PS and UKCAT, since they rank you before interviewing and top x students gets interview.

    I have 3A*s,8As for GCSE and I got an offer so your gcses should be okay. There's a thread on here which shows the profiles of successful applicants for each uni. check on there too. If you're not sure, email them and ask if the 36 will be enough. It might change for 2012 so I would wait a few months then doublecheck.

    True, but just good grades doesn't guarantee and interview.

    Well good luck to you all but I have firmed Newcastle and declined HYMS. Sadly my chemistry resit went as badly as the original and I now have A*AC (Biol resits went up from B to A*). Can't take the chance of missing a place again and my Newcastle offer is BBB (I'm 2 UMS off the B).
    Am sure you'll all love HYMS and have enjoyed chatting with you all.

    Well I did firm HYMS just a couple of days back , though I am holding a conditional offer for the IB so its basically head down hit the books right now. But they did post me those nice letters which made me feel good about myself, though it would suck if i can get the marks now
