    Hey! Just thought I'd make a thread for Classics Applicants for 2016 entry because i can't seem to find another one (correct me if I'm wrong). Any other hopeful classicists out there?

    What offers has everyone got?

    I have Kings and Warwick but not heard from UCL - my first choice, not sure if that is a bad sign - lots of Chemists and Economists seems to have offers... :tux:

    I understood the Oxford test was hard - I guess that just stretches out the field rather than being a bad thing, assuming everyone thought it was hard... Good luck!

    UCL first choice, then Durham, Warwick (offer), Exeter and KCL (offer).

    It looks like quite a few people are getting offers from UCL (in other subjects), hope that's not a bad sign.

    Ah, I am sure it isn't... They do different subjects at totally different times so I wouldn't worry! I only have an offer from Exeter so far

    Hey all
    Have legitimately no clue what to do for uni, since applying and then backing out from Cambridge this year.
    Was considering a gap year to get my Latin back up to standard, since I did used to love doing Latin at GCSE.
    Does anyone have any advice? I know it's not really directly applying but still ^^
    (I'm predicted A*AA if that helps at all ^^)

    I had, but backed out before I even sent off my application. I was aiming for the 4-year Classics course since I don't do A Level Latin/Greek.

    At this point I'm debating applying this year at all - just can't make my mind up, I don't feel passionate about anything enough to do it for 3/4 more years.
    Well, except Latin, but my Sixth Form didn't do it.

    If your school doesn't offer Latin A level then have a gap year (I'm on one atm) and apply for the 4 year course next year. It's one year for the rest of your life, do what you love. You owe it to yourself
