    Hey guys. So has anyone applied for the EDT Headstart courses 2012? Which courses did you apply for/ get offers from? I just found out I yesterday that I got my first choice - broad-based engineering at Oxford. Anyone else going? Hope you all got the courses you wanted!

    Hey, I also got an offer from Oxford, but for materials engineering. The thing is though, I just discovered I have a mechanics exam during the course so it doesn't look like I'll be able to go unless I have a streak of good luck and get on another course, which it says on the email is "very unlikely". I have emailed to ask about it so fingers crossed, but is anyone else here in the same situation? If so, fancy switching identities for a course? I'm so gutted!

    Ahh that sucks. Well you never know, there might be someone who put that course as their first choice but got their second choice instead so the Headstart people might be able to do a swap... I mean they obviously thought you were good enough to get a place, and you've got a proper reason why you can't attend so they really should give you a place on another course. Well that's my opinion anyway. I hope it gets sorted out for you. :console:

    Yes I got Warwick broad-based engineering too. =]
    Although I did pick Liverpool/Aerospace Engineering as my first choice, at least I got a place.

    Darn that sucks, did you get an offer from one of your other courses instead?
    Erm I got 7A*s and 4As but I've been told that's lower than the average Oxbridge applicant... :/ How about you?
    I went to a private school, but I don't think they looked at stuff like that when deciding. I think it was just based on your grades & the personal statement-style thing we had to write. Oh and a bit of luck!

    Man... That must be my average personal statement. I had 9 A* 3A and I came from a state school. To be fair I didn't put much effort into my personal statement :P so none of the unis took me..
