I sent my application on Thursday and have received acknowledgment from all unis I've applied to, except Durham. However, I. Having second thoughts about my choices and want to swap two. Is this possible or is it too late? I've applied for history and theology at Birmingham and Leeds but I think I want to swap to straight theology at Edinburgh and perhaps somewhere else

It is so beautiful, definitely the most beautiful college but i'm still with happy with choosing Pembroke . Fingers crossed for you, especially for being brave enough to choose it! I feel like a bit of a wimp for literally chickening out of my first college choice just due to fear of messing up on the day...

Hi!
I am applying for Philosophy and Theology at Bristol, Edinburgh, Durham, Nottingham and Exeter.
I have 4A* and 6A's at GCSE
I have AABB in AS Level Maths, Theology, Economics and Physics. My school do not declare your grades until the end of A-Levels, so I am retaking my Econ module.
Predicted AAA or A*AA with the A* being in either Economics or Theology.
Is anyone else applying? There are so few places it is freaking me out...

Roughly how many places would most of these Theology courses have anyway?

I saw Bristol offer like 38, but how about the rest?

There aren't many places but it's also not a very popular subject so as long as your grades are good then it shouldn't matter. I'm applying to Exeter, Durham and Edinburgh too and have an offer from Exeter

Yes, there is an option in Track to substitute choices, but it has to be done within 7 days of applying.

For the combined course there is only about 10 places at Durham and Bristol. It's quite scary!

Should I apply to King's College or Durham?

Same grade requirements, it's straight Theology.
I've an interest in Old Testament/Jewish studies and am sitting on ABBB at As Level.

Hoping to send off UCAS by the end of this week.
Any recommendations/advice appreciated.

I've applied to Oxford (Mansfield), Durham, Nottingham, Manchester and Lancaster for Theology/Religious Studies.
I'm predicted A*A*A in RS, Sociology and History (with AAAB at AS) and so far I have received an offer from Nottingham!
Has anyone else received any offers yet, and if so, with what conditions?
