    I just received an offer from Durham for Earth Science... I had applied for Natural Sciences and I was wondering if anyone else had had this happen to them.

    My son has had exactly the same experience for exactly the same courses - given the courses are not the same although some overlap it seems incredibly arrogant of Durham to do this -he feels he has wasted an application on them which could have been better used elsewhere (he got 4 A's at A2 in exactly the right subjects so very difficult to see why he didn't get an offer in the first place ...)

    Brings Durham into disrepute in my eyes - it would have been better to get a straight rejection than the insult of a different course
