    I am applying for 2014 entry too although you guys have the best subjects, I just hit the minimum. How is everyone getting on with personal statements?
    I am failing miserably - I have made sooo many plans to make plans.. think I have issues, although I have pretty much written out parts of it, just in plan format. Is anybody else finding it really difficult? Stressing!

    AS results good ?

    Oh yeah that's be great, imperial is honestly my first choice but that's only cause i don't know much about Oxford. Oh well don't think ill get in anyway haha

    Umm i got 5 a's which only makes the selection for a2 subjects harder, but hey it's better than being on the opposite end I guess

    Finally, my kind of thread!

    I'm hoping to apply for Geophysics (and EarthSci at Oxford ), I'm pretty nervous. Currently my uni choices are: Imperial, Southampton (twice - one for the year abroad option), Oxford and the fifth has yet to be decided. Maybe UEA or Bristol.

    I did AS Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Geography and will be dropping F Maths. Picking up AS Chemistry this year which I'm slightly fretting about looking at my friend's results this year. Oh well :rolleyes:

    How's everyone getting on with their PS's and stuff?

    Well done on your results! Oxford is a great city, the entire city is beautiful, but witl a nice mix of new and old There's Cowley road with the O2 arena if if you like music, there's plenty of shopping down the main high street. Its a nice mix of busy city with pretty area (defo wont be bored) If I had your grades, subjects and didn't live here Id love to come Ive also been in the Earth science building before and its really modern and the lecture theatres are the best I've seen at a uni so far

    I dunno really, just wanted something more "interesting" I suppose, although I love maths. And I really like chemistry so didn't want to give that up so geology combines maths and chem along with physics and geog. I haven't even been able to start my PS as I'm on holiday so I have to do it as soon as I get back. Gonna have some serious jet lag

    how is your PS going?

    I got 4 A's and 2 E's hehe... E in general studies and E in critical thinking lol.
    I've noticed I'm applying to 3 of the unis that you are ! (Imperial UCL and Bristol), also Leicester probs, just can't find a 5th one.. probably should soon..

    PS is so hard.. I've made it a lot easier now though.. I've made a word document and have just put headings on specific aspects of geology that interest me and made bullet points, justifying interests etc.
    So nervous about applying though!

    Hi... do you think it is worth picking up AS chemistry this year ?? I've been fretting over whether to for the past couple of months and still considering now, now I see that people are still picking up AS's.
    Do universities e.g. Imperial / UCL value an AS in chem highly ? I don't have chemistry (very annoyed) and obvs it is highly relevant to studying geology.
