    a double rejection honestly sucks :console:

    You can travel and do a lot of wider reading in your gap year. If you can try to get work experience (maybe ask if you can volunteer at a museum or something) There are so many possibilities.

    maybe call your local museum to see if they have volunteer opportunities! I am sure you'll do great wherever you end up!

    Got rejected for econ and Phil yesterday, thought I'd say if anyone wanted to know about rejections/offers for econ/Phil

    I'm RUK and predicted A*A*A*-A (EPQ)

    Quite a shame as it's my first choice and I had a lot ridding on this, might just take a gap year.

    Anyways congrats to successful candidates.

    Good luck guys

    How would I go about doing that?
    I know I made a mistake on my personal statement, it was a minor grammatical one, idk how it went unnoticed by 3-4 of my teachers but oh well.
    (if you're curious: after rearranging a quote I forgot to use (') <- that when the quote ended)

    Send an email to them asking for feedback on application. They should have an official policy on their website about this.

    :console: again and good luck with the gap year or wherever you end up in! I am sure you'll be amazing wherever you go!

    Rejected for IR (EU applicant). Don't really know what to do, I've been rejected by my two first choices (Edinburgh and St A). All that hard work and effort for nothing.
    I'll probably study in Germany. There goes my dream of studying abroad (although I was predicted the highest possible Abitur grades). I'm just really down right now

    I was rejected today too I was already expecting that, so it doesn't matter that much. Only downside is that I don't think I will get an offer from Edinburgh either so I can't study the subect I really want.

    Anyone heard from philosophy / psychology? I'm desperately waiting now. I feel like ringing up admissions to see if they know when they are releasing offers / rejections for those subjects. So nervous and impatient!
