Kind of excited here.
Got a chemistry offer last week :biggrin:


I'd better get my arse into gear, my school takes ages to process UCAS and people are already getting offers for chemistry?

Crap. :shot:

Yeah I did! I thought the mini interview thing had gone quite badly though because I was nervous! The letters they send are so personal and nice aren't they! Where else have you applied?

Username: jennieanydot
Course: Psychology
Accommodation: None, although I have friends who work at Vanbrugh so will be asking to join that college!

Good luck - you are all terrifyingly intelligent by the looks of your grades so I'm sure you'll have no problems getting where you want to be.

Jen
