    Haha way ahead of you - sick enough today that I didn't go to school
    Haha I've been out of school for the past two days almost wouldn't want to come to school on thursday so that my friends and teachers won't see my rejection live and so that I won't have to see their disappointment live haha

    dude just be happy in the fact that your offer will be a piece of cake. i was thinking about it today and i was just telling myself how much of a blessing it would be to get an offer of A*AA like that would make my life a piece of cake. xD i know you do IB but i think ib should have lower offers from oxford since a levels does too
    Btw, we have "lower offers" because we have more subjects to take. I honestly think that UK unis in general pretty much only care about our HL subjects.

    Pro tip: build an ultra fast train and go around the earth a few hundred thousand times within the next two days and it will feel as if only a couple hours passed by due to special relativity
    Ahhhhh I got a book for christmas on general relativity and the mathematics of general relativity it's soooo good

    i didnt mean to say IB has lower offers than a levels i meant that IB and A levels offers are both lower at oxford compared to cambridge and an A*AA offer would be a breeze :laugh:

    That's fair. True, honestly having an AAA offer also means less leeway to screw up so I'll definitely be working hard to get those 7s

    Depends on what subject

    If you had been pooled but not fished your original college will tell you about it.

    Ooh... in a way that's good but it might be more painful to accept as well.

    Did you do any outreach events? I did, but this is why I used a different email for my UCAS application!

    Because only a few of us are active posters

    Nope, except Open Days.

    I don't get enough emails to need a different one for UCAS - 9/10 of the emails I get now are from universities, I actually literally just got an email from Exeter.

    Fair enough. I used the same email for all of the outreach stuff and open days I did but as my school blocks that email provider (and I don't have email access on my mobile) I used a different account for UCAS because then I could check it at school and home!
