    I got an offer of AAB for English Literature, Creative writing and Practice- but I've not been to se the uni yet, I'm going to an applicant day and the whole place looks really good. I want to do a year abroad in Canada and the year abroads seem really well organised at Lanc!
    My only real issue is that I'm not really sure about the whole fact it's not really a city sort of thing, I've heard from a lot of people it's like a little bubble but I love a good social life, and theatres and good music scene and such? Any thoughts? I haven't been yet so I don't know if what I've heard is true or not haha.
    Hey congratz on your offer! I've got an offer for that course too I'm going to an applicant day on the 7th - which day are you going? I saw the uni in the summer and its really nice.. it is quite campus based tho :') but it seems there is still a lot going on there socially..

    I'm not sure yet, it's between Lancaster, UEA and Warwick, and then Aberystwyth will probably be my insurance and you?

    Hey, what course did you apply to, and did they tell you you would get an unconditional upon firming right when you received the offer, or was it sometime later? I'm wondering because I'm an international student and I received a ridiculously harsh offer - two Poles I know who are studying at Oxford had lower requirements! I would be pretty bummed if I missed my offer by a couple percent! :-(

    You know, they'll probably be lenient. Though, I wonder why the offer is so high?

    Might be because our educational system is undergoing an overhaul, though extended physics and maths remain nigh unchanged. They might have just been confused about our A levels equivalent and since there aren't many Poles applying, I wouldn't be surprised if they simply decided carefully comparing your and our exams isn't worth the effort!
    I certainly hope it's not because of my interview! It went fairly well and it appeared as if the conditions were picked beforehand, since my interviewer told me what they would be immediately after the last question :yes:
    Thanks for the reassuring words, too! I had mock exams throughout the week and I will see how far from the 90% average I am right now :rolleyes:

    Yeah, they're probably unfamiliar with the system so asked for they highest they thought was reasonable! Good luck with your mock results when do you find out?

    Haha, thank you! It depends on when the teachers finish marking them, and knowing my Physics teacher it might take a while I checked the mark scheme for maths though and I think I did alright

    Ah yes, I understand my computing teachers suck at marking the coursework!
    Well done, hopefully all your other results match that

    I've just got an offer from Lancaster to do Politics and International Relations next year , plus my offer was reduced from AAB to ABB (Dad didn't got to uni when he was 18), and it's my 1st offer & 1st choice uni PS: If there's any other Politics/International Relations offer holders/applicants it'd be great to chat, as I don't know anybody from my Sixth Form who's even applying to Lancaster
    I have a Politics & IR offer! My offer is ABB!

    Yes! Well done on the offer, by the way! I went through the ILancaster app. If they haven't already then they will send you a password for this (your username is the email you used for ucas.) Alternatively, if you don't have access to this app, I'm pretty sure that you can call them or just email.
