    Perfect grades and an abundance of extra-curriculars, impressive.
    Thanks Wolfgang

    Holy ****... I echo his sentiments. You probably get asked this question a lot, so apologies for asking, but how come you didn't apply for Oxbridge?

    There's no straight IR or IR/Language course at Oxbridge so I didn't bother. I might do a masters there but idrk

    What emails has anyone got from St Andrews?
    I got the initial welcome one, followed by the fee status. However, in the welcome one it said after determining the fee status they'd get in contact with more details of the application process. I wasn't sure if that meant I should have received another email by now; has anyone else?

    I went to the open day last week and pretty much they say the the overwhelming majority of their offers after the deadline. Maybe a couple just around Christmas. I'm not expecting anything anytime soon

    That is the same as me. I think it is normal to not have received anything yet. I think the next email will be regarding your offer. Which by the sounds of it will not be for a while.

    I will apply to Arabic and Persian with 38 IB points I honestly don't think I will get an offer as I apply to so different courses (in Scotland only St Andrews and Edinburgh offer Arabic), but at least I'll try!

    I have applied for physics too, I haven't had any replies yet. Where have you applied, apart from StA?

    I'm a German Student

    Course Applying: International Relations
    Grades: In Germany, we do the Abitur and the highest possible grade is 1.0 ... I'll probably get 1.1 (Entry requirements for Germans are 1.1-1.2)
    Extra curriculars: I've organized a workshop at a Munich refugee camp and have done arts with the children there, I volunteer at an organisation offering activities for families from all social/cultural backgrounds every week and I've done some maths and French tutoring (should I mention this in the application?)
    Other unis considering/applying to: Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Strathclyde

    So I probably won't get an offer ... I'll try though, St. Andrews is my first choice

    @the fellow German: Hallo! What are you going to apply for? Mind if I ask how your current grades look like? And how did you enter all your grades in UCAS? It's a bit confusing tbh ... I just created a module for every semester & course ... Now I have around 50 modules

    I'm applying for Art History and am also predicted 1.1 like you I entered all of my obtained grades but then only entered the most relevant predicted grades for the course, I seriously hope it wasn't a mistake...😅 I think I ended up with about 30 modules...

    Sounds good! I'm a bit worried about the so-called undergraduate Master (MA), I'd rather have a bachelor because I'm not sure yet whether I want to do my Master (postgraduate) in Germany or not ... I hope that it won't be confusing for them if I apply with a MA International Relations for a master I'll probably write a few German unis just to make sure that it isn't a problem.

    Good luck with your application, I hope that you get an offer!

    I'm sure it won't be a problem, it would be really weird if they made a big deal about it... I hope you get an offer as well! But I can't believe we have to wait so long ! 😢
