    I've seen people with offers for things like Molecular Biology and Ecology, Evolution and Behaviour (as above) but none for straight biology. I'm still waiting on them and I don't even want to go there now!

    If you definitely definitely don't want to go, you can cancel your Durham choice on ucas so that you can firm/insurance the universities you do want to go to and start applying for acccommodation, etc. at those unis (if their accommodation applications are open of course).

    I predicted AABB I wanted Hatfield but a supervisor said the university college is the best for bio students so I wrote that one..That college looks rather snob and formal though://

    Im still waiting for an answer but I was a bit dissappointed when I saw even people with predictions A* x 365765 got rejections fingers crossed!hope they like my non-zillion A*predictions!

    Excellent. Thanks for that! I have an interview at Sheffield and that might be my insurance so I'll wait until I get my offer there (if I do of course) and if Durham still haven't got back to me I'll bin them.

    People with A* predictions have been rejected? :eek: I guess that shows having a passion for your subject (god that sounded so personal statmenty lol) really counts for something.

    Good luck guys!

    It does look really pretty too! I adored it when I visited last year!
    Ahh you see, i know someone who went to to university and she told me of the rivalry between the two, and couldnt imagine applying for Hatfield!

    It is pretty cool! Good luck, I hope you get in!

    Whosever superviser said that Castle is best for Bio doesn't know what they're talking about - your college has nothing to do with your teaching and in theory every college has roughly the same proportion of students doing each subject. And besides, numbers vary from year to year-in my year only 3 Trevs students are doing biology (plus NatScis), but there are loads of freshers apparently. And your college choice doesn't affect your chances of getting in.
