    I'm currently studying A-level Art,Geography and Biology, predicted A*AB, i got 5A*3A's, 2B's at GCSE and really want to go to uni at Newcastle for Fine art, but I haven't done a foundation year/course and I don't know if thats something Newcastle would be looking for? I also haven't heard back from any of my UNI's yet but most my friends already have all their offers...? Is this normal? haha

    Fine art (and art in general) uni courses usually take longer for decisions - because they'll be asking for a portfolio online or at interview then they like to wait until February or so to allow applicants time to prepare.

    You may get an offer without foundation but if you don't then they'll likely explain that they think you're not quite ready yet and recommend a foundation diploma (remember that your application will be compared against applicants who are a year ahead of you on a foundation diploma where they're working almost entirely on developing their style and portfolio).

    Have you submitted your portfolio yet? Their website says the deadline is 27th January: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/undergraduate/d...ryrequirements

    If you haven't heard from them at all about the requirements then check your spam/junk filters for emails and if there's nothing in there ring them up.
