It's been two weeks since I sent my application and I haven't heard anything from Durham yet (I've had acknowledgements from all my others), just wondering if this is the case for everyone?

!!! When did you apply? Do you mind me asking what the offer's for (as in the conditions and course and stuff)?? I'm absolutely bricking it and I'd love to just have one offer in the bag so I can relax a bit until I hear if I've got an Oxford interview or not...

I applied exactly a week ago. It's aa for chemistry and one other subject. I got an a* maths already so that is probably why there is only two requirement. Yeah I am absolutely buzzing right now and what course are you going for in Oxford?

(Well done too, sorry I forgot to say that the first time hah) good luck! Sounds like you're well on track anyway. I'm applying for Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford, same as at Durham.

I'll give myself another few days before I start getting really obsessive about checking my emails, then; my UCAS was only submitted on Friday.

Archaeology and Anthropology! There's no test for me, just some submitted pieces of writing, and of course the interview. I really really want to get into the interview and then I feel like I'll have a fighting chance. How about you?

I've actually been surprised at all the people I've heard saying that the interview is the part they're dreading and most likely to mess up. I feel like it'll finally be a chance for me to actively demonstrate how passionate I am about the course material. And I'm applying to St John's

Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, right? I've got a friend who's doing that at Oxford, he's just started his first year and I'm already unspeakably jealous - he's been to a Classical Cocktails party, and I think soon he's going to some "Light Night" at the Pitt-Rivers soon. I hope we both get in

Most certainly! I suppose all we can do is to sit and obsessively refresh our email every five seconds (that's what I've been doing - even though I know the interview invitations would never be sent out so early).

Which other universities are you applying to?

Ugh, me too. I'm applying to quite a spread - Exeter, Durham, SOAS and UEA. I'm hearing of people getting offers from Durham already and I want one so I can relax a bit 😩 Where else are you applying?
