    Congrats on the offer (y).

    Thats alright then, I've been filling my portfolio with it along with some 3D generated objects an animation and digital character paintings. I'm just a bit worried because I dont have any official art qualification under my belt.
    Post #1000

    And yeah, don't worry about the Art, I got in, I hadn't done art since year 9 and only had an 8 week life drawing class under my belt and I got accepted, so you've got no sweat, it should all be fine.

    Got a conditional offer of 260 points at Teesside, although my heart is still set for Bournemouth whom I'm still waiting for a reply.

    I know General Studies is never counted but would it reflect badly if I, say, got a E (hypothetically speaking ) if in everything else I got As and Bs and my portfolio is great?

    I think aslong as you get the grades they want then it doesnt matter if you get an E or even U in your 4th of 5th subject

    I know bouremouth asks for ABB so aslong as you get ABB your fourth subject won't matter on the grade

    I do plan on continuing 4 'proper' A levels, so I'd only have a U for AS General anyway.
    I've never got below a B in anything before so I just don't want it to look bad

    I didn't even tell Ucas I've got an AS in general studies, nobody seems to care as it's such a pointless qualification. So to be honest there really isn't any need to even think about it

    Hertfordshire definatly
    When i went to teeside i didnt really like it and the course wasnt as good there

    If you havn't been to an open day i would recomend it (to all of your places) as their prosectus can give you a very different idea than what the place is actually like

    Well to let you know, you must have made a pretty good impression on them else they would have rejected you straight away. You made it to the last few who were rejected so were right on the edge of getting an offer.

    And personally it depends what you want to go into, are you feeling more technical or artistic, I would say that overall Herts has the better reputation. But Tees has a pretty good Computer side to it I think.

    I got a conditional offer at BU to do the animation arts instead of the computer visualisation and animation course. I'm not sure if I should accept it
    or stick with my original choice. Checked out both course contents and they have the same information, like they said in the interview day, one is more
    for the creative and the other for the technical side. Kinda having mixed feelings at the moment, like afraid if I decline, I might get rejected for the other...

    Email them ! Thats what I did and they explained that they wanted to move me to the animation and visualisation course, which has a bit more mathmatics and programming than the arts course. I wouldnt touch the offer on UCAS until you've spoken to them, it seems they action the course change on their end.

    Does anyone know how AUCB compares to the likes of Bournemouth, Hertfordshire, Teeside etc? I thought they were well sought after to study animation at and a great uni in general but I've not heard anyone really mention them here.

    I would say herts (going this year) The student show-reels are by far the best, and since that's what really matters.
