I've applied to Oxford (Chemistry), Nottingham (Chemistry), Durham (Chemistry), UCL (Chemical Physics) and Bristol (Chemical Physics).
I've already sent off my UCAS, and I've already received an offer at A*AA for Bristol!
Anyway, I'm wondering about my chances of getting into Durham because I've heard from some that the course is almost as competitive as oxbridge...
At GCSE I got 6A*'s 3A's and 3B's
At AS I got, an A in A2 Maths, an A in AS Chemistry and a B in Physics (1 mark off an A, which is in reference)
And at A2 I'm doing Chemistry, Physics and Further Maths, as well as retaking C4 to get an A* in A-level maths.
I'm predicted A*A*A*A (the A is in Further Maths)
My personal statement was mostly subject related, with only 15% of it extra curricular/transferable skills rubbish - I've heard Durham puts more emphasis on this, is this fine? This is my main worry, and I would really like to get an offer for Durham because I don't think I stand a chance of Oxford...
Even more elitist than everyone thought?
