    Offer: Unconditional as I already have my grades
    How did you find out?: Letter
    How do you feel?: obviously I'm happy I got an offer, but I'm not going to accept it because Oxford was never my first choice - I only applied as a back up. In a way I'm upset because now everyone is assuming I'll go to Oxford. I've even been told how selfish it is that I don't want to go and that I didn't really deserve it.
    Don't listen to them! It is your life you do what you want with it! go to a place where you'll be happy, whether that is in Oxford or elsewhere.
    Congratulations though Magdalen is an amazing college, you'll do very well and I am sure you'll be extremely happy if you choose to go there.

    You're not selfish at all, it's totally up to you. I would let them know you're rejecting them as soon as you can though, because it means they can give the place to someone else.

    College: Applied to Keble, but Open Offer for Hertford. No idea what that means, but it's not a rejection, so I'm happy.
    Offer:AAA
    Feeling: I know my offer is quite achievable, given that some people have 2A*s as part of their offers, but I'm still scared that I might miss the it!!!

    I took Calc AB, US History, Human Geography, and Music Theory all at grade 5. I think that might be a bit excessive though, so I'm actually wondering why I have the high conditions.
    Thank you! I'm sure you'll get the grades!
