    I've moved this to the Durham forum for you as you've not received a reply. Hopefully someone here can/will help you.

    I've applied for history too and haven't heard anything yet, so I wouldn't worry!

    Got an offer today! submitted mine in October though, so I think the History dept. must just be processing them slowly as it's a competitive course... best of luck!

    GCSE: 5A*, 5A, 2B, 2C
    AS: AABE - with 100% UMS in my chosen subject (specified on my reference)
    A2 predictions: A*A*A
    Offer: A*AA
    School type: State School

    I honestly have no idea how much they take into account. I know you must be sick of hearing this but the broad range of offers they give out shows that grades don't have to be 100% perfect - they seem to take into account the individual.
    Best of luck, hope this helps

    I got 8A*s at GCSE and AS 3As 1b
    And predicted A*A*A
    But I do go to a private school. I really want to go to Durham I don't know why they haven't replied.

    Well the fact you haven't heard obviously means they're still considering you so I'd take that as a good sign! There were only a couple of applicants in my school and we both heard late and got offers - hearing late seems to be a good thing for most. Even if not, your grades are excellent so I'm sure you'll do well at whichever university you go to!
