    Hello!

    I am also looking to apply to SOAS - alongside Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester but SOAS is definitely my top choice!

    I'm applying for Chinese and Korean at SOAS and just Chinese at the others, I'm currently studying Classics, German and History.

    If we both get in, I'll see you in the Korean classes, haha

    Omd! You have applied to 4 of the unis I've applied to. I applied for Chinese and Korean at SOAS as well, have you gone to visit it yet? I applied for Asia Pacific studies and Chinese at Leeds and Korean studies at Sheffield. At the moment my main option is actually Leeds.

    I'm on a gap year and have a place at Royal Holloway but during this gap year I've actually taken an interest in the Korean language and culture. I want to work there (hopefully.) But obviously it would be slightly difficult if I can't speak the language fluently. So now, I kind of want to go through UCAS again and apply to SOAS so I can study BA English alongside Korean.

    But the thing is its really risky if I do that since I got BBE last year and the grade entries are like AAA-ABB.

    I could lose my place at my other Uni and not get into SOAS at all. I don't know what to do :'((

    Maybe you should get in touch with SOAS and ask them what your chances are and if it's worth applying, they might make you a reduced offer depending on your personal statement, what you did in your gap year etc...

    Best of luck

    I applied for BA Japanese alongside Leeds, Durham, Manchester and Oxford Brookes. Even though SOAS is my first choice, I believe Leeds is amazing as well. I am stuck in between them :facepalm:
