Thank you! I'm sure you'll get one too! Durham I think but I'm unlikely to get an offer and love UCL so much so I'm fine either way

Hi, I'm an international student and I applied for history.

I'm taking IB, so my predicted grade was 40 points out of 45 and 666 for HL subjects
(equivalent to AAA according to ucas)

I've applied to Oxford (rejected after interview), King's (offer for 666=AAA), Queen Mary (AAB) and Royal Holloway (unconditional)

I'm still waiting for UCL to reply ... Did they ask you guys to send any essay/questionaire? They haven't asked me anything but my application status is still "application received"

Yes, I was asked to send an essay on a history book I've read recently. That was towards the end of October.

I was asked to write a short essay on how historians prove their arguments in November I think Double check the UCL portal because my friend didn't realise they asked her to write one as well (luckily she checked before the deadline)

Hey!

My A-level results are A*AB

- I submitted my application to UCAS in November for two courses at UCL: German and History AND History with a Year Abroad.
- I have received unconditional offers from Kings, Bristol and Leeds but I am waiting for my UCL (1st choice)

I received an email from UCL asking me to complete an essay/questionnaire for History with a Year Abroad in November and haven't had a reply yet!

Well done on your offers! Which of the two UCL courses would you prefer to do then?

No I wasn't (maybe because I got my offer in October for QMUL so they didn't need to interview me but I'm not sure!) Good luck! Where else did you apply?
