    Huge hugs, I am sooo excited for you. I had looked up UEA on the Times list and did not realised quite how well respected they were. You learn something everytime you go on TSR.

    But now get off TSR, get on with your studies and pm me in August when you get your fantastic results.

    I'm the same, I'm on a gap year with no money so it is *extremely* tedious waiting. What is worse for me is...I already waited a year to start a university which I didn't *like* i.e. Keele Uni as it is too isolated now I need to wait longer.

    I did get an unconditional offer today though so least I know I'm going now!
    Ahh it must be so much worse the second time round! Congrats where was it from?

    You only need 1 Wait until you hear from the others, and if necessary re-apply next year because it sounds like you've been unlucky, this year is incredibly competitive.

    Keep hope! You can always apply through clearing/extra if things do go wrong. What course are you wanting to do?

    I want(ed) to do English Literature at three of the universities, and English With Creative Writing at UEA and Warwick.

    I know, but I have my reservations. Arrogant as this sounds, I don't really want to settle with my current grades, and, if I get the grades I'm predicted, I don't think that I should have to go through Clearing.

    I'm resigned to reapplying next year and getting £15,000 more debt. How's your application going?

    I know...It's just, with a 100% failure rate so far, Bristol's ratio being one-in-twenty-six, and Warwick being...well, Warwick, I'm doubting myself.

    I know it's extremely competitive, and I hold no bitterness or anger, because there is a plethora of fantastic candidates this year more than ever. I'm more disappointed, and a bit perplexed-I don't think that I could've done any more.

    How is your application going?

    Nope, most of mine didn't bother sending me an acknowledgement and I got offers from all of them, so it's nothing to worry about

    I understand what you mean...I'm sure you'll be lucky soon! I suppose you have applied for higher universities and they always seem more "picky", I'm not sure why really, a degree in the end, is a degree. I suppose they look for the "best" whatever that is...I know they like you have a large list of "exta" items other than exams.

    My application is going *okay*...one unsucessful and one unconditional...three still waiting.

    OMG don't get me started about UEA!
    I really wanted to go there to do English with Creative Writing but I was 'unsuccessful in my application' :mad: My target grades reference were good too!!!!!

    Now worried about other applications
