    I went on an open day which was quite badly organised. The different talks and presentations all seemed to clash in stupid ways and were at completely opposite ends of the university, in inadequate venues. The talk by the English department was dull and uninspiring. None of the student helpers seemed to know what they were doing, especially when it came to giving information about accommodation (they didn't know anything) and all they talked about was the night life.
    St. Andrews has a nightlife?

    Anyone else think its completely unfair of Exeter to have an AAA standard offer?
    You know what's even more unfair?

    Sussex having an AAA offer for English...it's insane!

    I'm on a gap year, and I'm worried about my lack of an A*.... I have three A's, do you think that will be enough?

    Someone once said to me that Exeter gave out offers that matched your predicted grades, hence the high conditions, but I reckon that was a groundless rumour. Still, it shows that people wonder why Exeter gives out such high offers. It's got an extremely well respected English course though hasn't it? Oh does anyone know why UEA's standard offer went from ABB to AAB this year? I'm guessing they're just getting slightly more applicants each year or something (makes it not quite as good an insurance, damn it )

    --------------

    Well someone on TSR did say that when asked why she was rejected for English Durham said she had 4A*s and they were exercising a min 5A* policy. They do seem to place a lot of emphasis on GCSE results but I do know people who got in without 5A*s so they must make exceptions
    **** Durham want 5 a*s?? I got aaaaaaabb

    I think that could be quite high risk if you are already on a gap year. You do not want to have to re-apply next year when tuition fees double. And lots of people will take that into account who might have taken gap years next year, so competition is likely to be even fiercer.

    Depends on the strength of your personal statement and perhaps GSCE results.

    A language at AS or above would help with York. Warwick interview, so that could be good or bad depending on how perform under pressure. Although Nottingham's offer is AAB, lots of people have AAA or better.

    I would be tempted to have one slightly safer choice in their: Leeds, Birmingham, Leicester, Glasgow?
