Firm: Brighton
Course: Business and e-commerce
Offer: 240 points
Comments: 240!!! Sooo stupidly low. But i like the course they offer there, and its 4 years with a work placement, so thats good

Insurance: Bournemouth
Course: Something with business and computers in (can't remember the title)
Offer: 240 points
Comments: Why do they expect so little of me??? Its boring there, but i've got relatives i can scrounge off, so its a reasonable insurance offer (not that its at all useful).

Declined: Westminster (120 points), Swansea (i think it was something like 260 or something), Surrey (Can't remember. Told them not to bother 3 times, but still sent me an offer).

Leeds university: BA History

Firm: Liverpool University
Offer: 240 tariff points
Course: Orthoptics BSc

Heehee, yay! Even if I dropped all my A2s and got an E in AS Psychology this year I'd still get that!

Insurance: Liverpool University
Offer: B in any one of Biology or Chemistry; C in Psychology; C in Maths
Course: Zoology with Evolutionary Psychology BSc

You can tell I want to go to Liverpool, can't you? Insurance is higher than my offer so I shouldn't theoretically need it!

Declines: Bangor (Biology with Media Practice - seemed attractive at the time but have since discovered it isn't as well regarded as a straight Journo degree :rolleyes: )
Edinburgh (Zoology - waaaah, I love the city soooo much but it's just too cold - my feet wouldn't cope )
Nottingham (Zoology - rejected, but hahaha I care not! )
Sheffield (Orthoptics - they wanted a B in Maths and my retakes still came out at a C overall, and I just didn't want to as I liked Liverpool so much better.)

Ye Gods doing the UCAS reply was nerve-wracking!

My daughter's now got all her replies, 1 rejection (Edinburgh) and 5 unconditional offers for English & History of Art (with ABCc). She's almost certainly rejecting Leicester, UEA, Southampton & Oxford Brookes and going for Loughborough as her firm choice.
