    We probably will get a letter nearer the date How old are you guys? I'm 17, 18 in August. And I think we pick our 2 sciences that we want to study out of physics, chem and bio at the start

    I'm sure they'll inform us soon, to let us know the starting date. What are you planning to after the first year, I'm still undecided?

    Hopefully and environmental science, but all the degrees looks so good so I might change my mind halfway through :P but I might not even get in extended science yet, so don't wanna decide too far in the future, and didn't you have to write a personal statement?

    Yeah I had to write a personal statement, have you been given an offer yet? They do have a interesting variety of degrees to progress to, I think that's why cannot decide.

    Their ocean science sounds interesting, been having a look at it. I wasn't sure how popular the extended science would be, but apparently they get a lot of applications

    Ooh ocean exploration sounds fun! And ah thanks, and well we have like a year to decide haha, and I'm sure we will have help and information for deciding the degree nearer the end of the year. Or do we have to apply again through UCAS in like Jan time?

    Yeah it seems popular, I was surprised there was no 2014 post for it already!
    There is lots of choice for progression but i guess we would have to choose our degrees quite early on to ensure a place?

    Do you know how many applications they get and how many they can choose out of the applications? I didn't know it was so popular either, but I guess I can see why
