    All of mine actually! I have an offer from Sussex, two from Nottingham and one from UEA, the latter is unconditional if I choose to firm it. But it's then what to put for an insurance choice that's getting me. It's been an ambition of mine for years, but I really didn't think I was getting an offer! But I'm debating rejecting Cambridge because some of my teachers are already (literally by Thursday afternoon) on my case about making sure I don't do too much extra curricular and do enough work on my a levels. What they don't see is that if I don't do the clubs they might as well hospitalise me now because I'll have a mental breakdown, and I've literally worked all weekend other than a couple of hours each morning - so I'm definitely doing enough! My higher Nottingham offer was only 1 grade lower than Cambridge, but they weren't making a fuss then haha

    How do you manage to endure so much work? I need to know :P I feel like I always get distracted when I revise and, even though I plan to get five or six hours done at the weekend, I only get about three hours done.

    No problem.
    Basically if you qualify you get it automatically.

    Don't hesitate to ask about anything else.

    That's not too bad. Try do the pomodoro technique maybe?

    When calculating household income, does your own personal income come into the equation? I've read differing opinions on the matter, some saying it does, and other saying it does not - that it's only your parents income, even though I would have thought it does count.

    Yes it is. Note this doesn't include capital (eg. savings, property)

    I really need a boost to work, I kind of wish I'd got rejected because it would have made me work harder. In order to revise effectively I need to clean my shithole of a room, but I just cba. I've tried for days and I just can't. I have the motivation to revise but not do this room.

    Sorry for butting in but..

    If I quoted my hours of 'work' last weekend I would have been happy. However, realistically only a fraction was actually useful/non procrastinating...

    Yeah if I got rejected I would feel less pressured, and also feel less guilty when I'm not working
