I've seen that more people are starting to get their offers from Durham, and someone suggested that we should start a Facebook group but since that's hard to organise, I've started this instead so we can (possibly) celebrate and discuss (potential) uni life.

Do also post details of your offers (course, conditions, when you got your offer) below or on the university connect page since that can be useful to other people applying/waiting for their offers!

Hi.

I have a very pressing issue here. Please tell me what you make of this conundrum and help me figure it out, yes?

So I just received an offer from Durham for psychology (conditional offer, yes) and the condition requires me to score 85% in four academic subjects AND 85% in mathematics. Now, the problem here is, I don't have mathematics. I clearly stated my subjects in the application, and I'm just really confused and annoyed right now because it would suck to have my offer cancelled. Can that happen, though?

I just wrote to Durham and I just got their automated reply back saying that they're bogged down with applications and they'll get to me ASAP.

Can a university like Durham make an error like that? Can they cancel my offer, knowing that I CANNOT fulfill this condition because I don't have the subject?

Please opine.

Please opine.
I doubt they'll cancel your offer since they've already deemed you as a worthy applicant by making you and offer. They'll probably just revise your offer conditions.

Castle! I really do hope I get allocated there, since that's my second choice uni after Oxford (and my chances of getting into Oxford are pretty close to 0)

Hey,
I am applying for Ancient, Medieval and Modern History at Durham, but have not got an offer yet, so a bit anxious.
Just wondering if any historians have got offers from Durham, as I know they can take their time!?

Durham is known for taking quite a while to send offers, so don't you worry. I haven't seen any historians with offers from Durham, so I guess they haven't started looking at the applications yet.
