    I feel like u should just hnd it in, because it is optional, whether u hand in one or not.

    Have you submitted your portfolio for Nottingham yet? None of us have offers from Nottingham yet!

    I haven't had a portfolio request from Nottingham! That's why I was wondering how it takes to get asked for one :-)

    I got an offer last week ( 15th Nov ) which was a surprise as they said they give out the offers in January at their open day . I think a few others have also had offers but they seem to be drip feeding very slowly . I think from last year's thread people got offers Dec and Jan mostly .
    Where else have you applied to ?

    Sara, When did you apply? I think many of those who applied before the Oxbridge cut-off date have heard, but don't get alarmed if you haven't!

    No portfolio for Bath. They make their decision on Results so far, school reference/predictions and Personal Statement only.
    I didn't know you could add another choice after submitting! How about Kent - that seems very popular and is up-coming. Or Cardiff? Cardiff requires a portfolio (just 8 sides of A4) but no interview. I think very few interview. Maybe just Cambridge and UCL?

    A question regarding "show and tell" portfolios - i.e. to take to interview - does anyone have any "video art" to include - and would they bring a tablet along with them to show it? Or is that considered "vulgar"? ;-)

    I don't think you would have time unless it's really short or something you really want to show since for Camb, Trinity said that they will only have 15 mins going through the portfolio, and for other places probably even shorter
