    Ahh, not another one :'(

    Congratulations, although I shouldn't really be saying that to my competition

    The usual interrogation; predicted/AS grades, gcses, UMS? All these offers do worry me :P

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    10A*s and 1A grade at GCSE (all CCEA board)
    4As at As level in maths physics biology and chemistry
    maths ums 263/300
    physics 295/300
    predicted A*A*A*A at alevel... Although my chemistry teacher reckons i might scrape that last A*
    and i applied on 10th October
    to be honest i reckon my personal statement is what got me in because i didn't do further maths

    I doubt it, further maths isn't necessary for admission, I spoke to an admissions tutor at Oxford who said it wouldn't matter... But I took it up as an AS anyway haha

    Having read only the first and last ten pages of this thread...I'm just going to jump in? lol

    • What is your name?: Michelle

    • What universities are you interested in? I applied to Nottingham Trent and Aberystwyth, both of which I've gotten conditional offers from (and the latter of which I still tend to mumble when I mention it considering it's so damn hard for me to pronounce ), then Dundee, Hertfordshire and Keele. Keele just contacted me again for more info about my fee status, so once I have that sent off I hope I'll get an answer soon...!

    • What are your subjects and hopeful grades for AS and A2? Not really applicable for me; I'm an international student. But I'm hoping to make a score of 5/5 on AP Calc AB, Physics, and Stats (and then 700 or more on SAT II).

    • Any female physicists out there?: Me! Glad to see so many on here, lol. I was even just talking to a Chinese acquaintance of mine who works on satellite construction about the ratio of females in physics, haha.

    Has anyone received a letter from Exeters physics department? I got one saying they'll make a decision soon, but it had a handwritten message at the bottom from my interviewer saying I was a "driven student, able to approach problems in original ways". Did anyone else get anything like this?
    Yeah, I had a handwritten one from Ali Hibbins saying that my interviewer told him that I tackled her problem exceptionally I was worried at first in case is was the dreaded 'You didn't get an offer, but you did 'very well to get this far' type of thing, but I guess Exeter just take longer to make their offers!

    Not really sure how the PAT went! I think my score could range from 60 to 75% so I think i've got an interview... But i'm not getting my hopes up, just in case Nothing yet! I think we'll hear in the next 2 weeks...

    Yeah I think my scores probably around the same margin hoping they don't do what they did in 2010 and put the grade boundary up so high.

    I hope it is in the next 2 weeks! Having a mini panic attack whenever I get a letter at the moment
