    Hadn't heard any of this stuff about their bias towards state school, it seemed so hard to get into as so many people got rejections last year with perfect grades and there are so few places. Well done!

    My grades are far from perfect! I guess that the P.S and reference were an important factor in my offer, as was my circumstances...

    Yh I am confused by this state school stuff- (which includes grammar schools). Apparently the universities have 'targets' of ensuring that 60% of their offer holders are from state schools, though most of these people already (9/10 in Cambridge's case) had the necessary grades anyway. So I don't think there is any leniency.
    Therefore, Illmatic, on top of your decent music taste, your grades must have been good enough, and you must have had a good PS and reference! Though if they do have leniency, I've heard they compare your GCSEs and AS with your school average which will only be an advantage to you Tateco (if you went to an average school)

    Lol I was predicted the necessary grades, so I do agree with you

    I debated applying Nottingham with Bath and Bristol!

    Nottingham was my hope for an early offer until they sent that email saying they weren't going to give out any straight economics offers until after Jan deadline....

    Me too! It's my first choice without a doubt, I'm obsessed. Why's that, just because it's less competitive?
    That
