    Congrats on your offer!

    Subjects: History(BA) and Ancient, Medieval, and Modern History(BA)
    Offers: Unconditional (I'm international so I already have my results)

    Durham is probably my first choice so I was really excited to get an offer for AMMH! Anyone else apply to St. Chad's?

    I'm just hoping I get allocated to Chads, I really liked the college on the open day.

    Wow I think you're the first person I've seen on here that's also applied to Chad's!
    I'm applying from California. What about you?

    I'm from the Midlands in England so Durham is only a few hours away. Is Durham your first choice? I'm not sure how I'm going to decide between my choices, best of luck with your applications!

    Yeah, Durham's my first choice so I'm pretty excited about attending. What about you? Where else have you applied?
    Thanks and good luck with deciding on a Uni!

    I've applied to Warwick,York,Bath and Oxford too, I've got offers from the first three and hopefully I'll hear from Oxford soon. I can't wait to go to any of them, I think I'll need to go back again to see Durham and the others as they all have certain aspects that differentiate them. As you're from California have you managed to come over to see St Chad's and Durham? If not you've made a great choice so don't worry

    I also applied to York and Oxford! I keep checking my email to make sure I haven't missed an invitation to interview at Oxford and it's honestly so nerve-racking. If I do go over to interview, I'll go see Durham (for the first time!) as well.
    Haha thanks, I think so too. St. Chad's looked really friendly online, and it's proximity to the History department didn't hurt. I definitely have my fingers crossed that I don't get allocated into a different college, especially one that's not on the Bailey.

    University college seems pretty oversubscribed but it's worth a shot, right?

    Got my offer form Durham 3 weeks ago, on the second day after they send me the acknowledgement.

    Only requires AB in A2 level including Chinese... Due to my first language is Chinese, so it means I only have to get an B this year to get into Durham. YAHHHHH.

    Calling all American applicants/offer holders:

    Do we need to send scores through the
    College Board too or is the UCAS enough? I emailed the international office but they haven't got back yet.

    Offer: Above 700 on SAT II Biology (I am an international applicant from the US, so no A levels) and above 6.5 on IELTS(English language proficiency exam. Apparently having lived in the United States since I was one didn't convince the office of admissions I spoke English, but oh well. It ought to be an easy exam. )
    College: It says campus code Z, I have no clue what that means,

    I applied in early October since I am also applying to Oxford.

    For the benefit of other US applicants what did they say?

    How did you change it?

    In addition, I have never visited Durham, so I wouldn't mind if someone could tell me the main differences between colleges, and maybe recommend one. I would prefer an older college.

    We only need to send a score report if we recieve an offer AND decide to go.

    Congrats on your offer!

    And Z means you been given an offer and are now waiting for allocation (pretty sure)
