    I'm kind of thinking of reapplying next year for Bio NatSci, and doing a third year in sixth form. I'll need to do 3 AS/A2s, so if I do Further Maths (AS + A2) then I only need one more. I'm thinking Politics. Any recommendations? I already do Maths, Bio, Chem and Physics
    Honestly if you get 3A* in maths, chem and biology and then just do further maths in a gap year I think that would make you a pretty strong applicant gradeswise

    Letter finally come through the post, and it was a rejection. I'm honestly more annoyed that they made us wait so long, but as much as I knew it would happen i'm still disappointed.

    Oh well.
    I'm sorry to hear that. I was rooting for you, as a fellow prospective Robinsonian.

    Just get A*A*A*, you don't need to add a 3rd year.

    If I'm not staying in sixth form, my only other real alternative would be working, which isn't as ideal, due to less free time and being less ready for the transition to uni.
    Wouldn't broadening my horizons also be better?

    Well I am on a gap year working AND didn't even get 3A*'s and I got an offer for an A in further maths (gap year qual.) for bionatsci, so I don't think the gap year thing is a big deal and if you indicate you're gonna do a lot of biology/chem reading in your gap then that's probably better than an A level in politics or w/e

    You can pick St John's, then whenever someone starts saying that they'd rather be at Oxford you can reply "well so would I but they wouldn't take me so I had to settle for this instead" :rofl:
    :rofl: that would be funny

    Any Natsci's that got offers even with "bad GCSEs", at least for Cambridge standards? I'm starting to feel as if mine let me down since I had 4 A's at AS.
