    If you were to be locked in a room for a week allowed just one text book to keep yourself occupied what would you choose? That type of thinking exercise may help you decide.

    You have to write to the college for feedback on any part of the application/interview process.
    Thanks!

    HumSci would be cheating because it encompasses both those subject :rofl:

    but thanks for the tip I'll definitely think about that question!

    An idea - everyone, successful or otherwise post the feedback they receive so that future generations of applicants can learn from our successes/failures. Hat tip for the idea goes to Student1256 on the Cambridge thread.

    Edit: You can also consider adding the feedback to any post you have made/will make on the decisions thread there:

    I believe so (I could be wrong). On their website here (https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...eedback?wssl=1) they talk about feedback for decisions, not rejections. Do you have any mention of it in your email/letter?

    When will our UCAS Track update? I'm getting nightmares that they will rescind my offer/send out an error saying that they sent the wrong letter out to me.
    Meanwhile I'm dreaming that they accidentally sent the wrong letter and actually wanted me there

    Are you thinking of reapplying or do you have another option you like?

    I'm going to see what happens ... if at least some of my other applications come through, I'll visit the unis and see how much I like them. Once I have that info, I'll consider what to do next: go to one of them, or take a gap year and re-apply.
