    Superb results sir!!!

    Good luck at Oxford, although with 4 A grades I doubt it will be about luck.

    Congrats!

    I have friend who's also studying at St. Catz, Oxford but he's in the 2nd year already.

    What course are you doing there?

    Indeed, he got AAA for Maths, English lit and erm something else...(he also did further maths but I think that was a B? but he had an AAA offer for the other subjects)...He's doing PPE, he had never studied any of the subjects before but he's really enjoying it- well the works ok, he certainly loves the town and his RPG society

    I'm going to do Maths, Eng lit and something else (as well as General Studies) at A-level. I may not do PPe now, though, maybe just Economics.

    Yes, so I've got plenty of time to think about it.

    I don't know they didn't say.

    I've also missed my insurance (UCL) - I need an A in maths - so will have to phone them too if Oxford say no.

    Does anyone think I should phone UCL before waiting for Oxford to reply?

    Might be a good idea- before all the places are gone?!

    Yeah, I agree with Egan1, you should. Basically, it's a race against time. Other students in your same position will be competing against each other to contact the uni and inquire. So the faster you contact them, the higher chances of getting a place before they run out.

    Ring UCL using a different phone so if Oxford ring back you won't miss the call!

    I've decided i'm going to wait 20mins or so then call Oxford. If that dosn't work i might call UCL afterwards.
