Hey there!
Just created this thread for us 2015 entry St Andrews applicants. Thought we could share how our application is going.
I'm applying for International relations.
I've also applied for IR/politics courses at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Stirling. Got an offer from Glasgow, still waiting on the rest. St A's is my first choice though - want to go there soo bad!
Been predicted 5 A's at Higher, and have all A's at Int 2/ GCSE excluding one C in maths, oops.
Please share your story!

I really want to go to St Andrews too! Just applied last month for Geology there, and at Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. But St Andrews is the only one which hasn't replied yet!
I got straight A's in my Higher exams

I've got a conditional offer from Glasgow, but haven't heard from anywhere else yet. St Andrews takes a while to respond as they don't even start reading applications till the 15th. I've applied for IR too, but it's soso competitive at St A's, like 15 applicants per place, but I want it so bad! Are you from Scotland?

They can look at applicants before the deadline, I got my offer for maths in December .They do take a while though, it took almost a month before they told be they'd received my application!

No, but from the EU, how about you? St A's would be a dream come true but i guess that counts for every one even applying with them

I think it will probably be around March time, it may be sooner but i've heard St Andrews takes a while, especially if your course is competitive.

St Andrews is definitely my 1st choice, especially since I just got rejected from Cambridge, and I could never decide between the two! So I really hope St Andrews give me an offer aha! Are they your 1st choice?! And yeah, hopefully see you in September! Do you live in Scotland?
