    Where does one request feedback?
    I just emailed the Physics department asking for feedback mate. Ctrl-F feedback on this page - https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/ug/policy/

    Whaaaat, I was rooting for you (for some odd reason )!

    I've requested feedback too, because i don't think my grades were the reason.. :/
    Haha cheers. Yeah I'm thinking it was probably my personal statement or something.

    Still waiting to hear back for Modern History (I'm RUK and haven't seen anyone with History offers yet unless they're on a gap year so I'm still hopeful!)
    Rejected from Oxford, have an offer from Durham (but I've always preferred St A's anyway, and didn't get my first choice college which has made me even more sure Durham isn't for me - I live much too close, would rather explore somewhere new) so realistically if I'm not going to take a gap year then this is my last chance!!!! *crosses fingers*
    Good luck to everyone still waiting
    How do you know your college?

    The online booking form for the post-offer days has gone live, so you can find out through there!

    Rejection today here as-well. I'm really puzzled because I see they've both made offers to inferior candidates than myself, and rejected even more superior. I think they're nuts. Either they've been taking money for offers, or they must have pulled names out of a hat.

    Anyway, no worries, I had no real preference over Warwick, and it doesn't compare to a Cambridge rejection. Best of luck to everyone waiting, and commiserations to everyone else who received their rejection. I'll be deciding whether to go to Warwick/Durham or re-apply to Cambridge.

    just looked up to see what my application has been up to - still at pending decision which it has been from about 3 weeks after I applied. It says the department is Economics & Finance, and yet I applied to modern history & economics, I know they're both in the faculty of arts, but this would suggest it's just being looked at by economics and finance, and not history

    I suspect it just says that because the degree is officially "MA(Hons) Economics and Modern History" and they get listed by which subject comes first, technically giving that department overall 'responsibility' so to speak. When I graduated, for example, it was with everyone doing German because my degree was "German and Modern History". I wouldn't worry too much about it - good luck!
