    Does anyone want to take any guesses where I might end up? I'm doubting Corpus as 2ppl on here already made the grades!
    And a third physicist I know has made the Corpus grades. Hmmm totally random guess, well I'll go with one of the bigger ones as they have more people and therefore more people likely to slip grades. Sooooo.... according to the prospectus Merton has the most physics undergrads, so my betting goes on that. I certainly wouldnt trust my betting ability though after managing to win nothing at a night at the dogs Anyway, I'm sure you'll enjoy wherever you go and I hope you get one you're pleased with

    They still let me in. The ten minutes between getting my results and getting confirmation from the college were some of the most horrible of all time.

    The B's a joke though. It was in the subject I was most confident about, and would have got an A if I'd got a C in my literature paper. I got 14/90.

    At last it all over. Now I just need to but a Dinner Suit - and all the rest of the stuff!!!
    Feels quite strange, all this time waiting for unfolding a sheet of paper. Did much better than I'd hoped for in terms of module marks - on papers I knew I'd failed I got very high marks!!
    See you all there in October - not that long now I suppose.

    Ok, for anyone who's really lazy I've made a poor-quality spreadsheet with all this information. Unfortunately, UKL won't let me attach an Excel file so it's a Word document instead. I'll keep it updated, but does the OP want to add it to their original post so people don't have to keep trekking through the thread?

    Just a thought.

    YAY! Another a Physicist!

    I found out today which college I'm going to. I heard the post arrive, ran into the hall, a big pile on the doormat and one larger white envelope which had fallen upside down. Bent down to pick it up, turned it over and glanced at post stamp:

    ACCESS TO EXCELLENCE
    St Hilda's College Oxford

    At first, I was gutted and didnt want to believe it. As they had originally sent me the Open Offer letter, I thought well maybe they're just sending me a fresher's pack as I'm on their list. Finally, I found a letter between everything else saying that I had been accepted by St Hilda's. I was really upset, not because I have a thing against the college but I really would have prefered a mixed college as I've been in single sex education since I was 7 However, as I read through the various leaflets and fresher's packs I realised (as many of the current undergrads said) that a lot of people at St Hilda's didnt chose it as their first place and were allocated there by other colleges/open offers etc and yet they still love it. Now I'm not really that bothered that it's all girls! Come on, how many girls do Physics courses neways - most of people on my course will be guys!!!! Luckily, all college social events are mixed sex so its ok really.

    So if there are any other "Hildabeasts" out there, I'm going to start a new thread for us, so we can all chat and meet!

    Snap, Sam... they've let me in too, phew! They called me at 9:30am on results day, when my school doesn't release them until 11am, and they told me over the phone that I'd slipped a grade... but they were still offering me a place. Thank god they told me then, or I'd've had a heart attack! To be honest, I was expecting to drop a grade in English, my crappy subject, but dropped it in philosophy, MY subject, after getting a U in one of the modules!

    God knows what happened there, I thought it'd gone pretty darn well! Anyways, all in the past... time to dig out that reading list...

    After having received an Open Offer from LMH - I had applied to Magdalen - I got a letter this morning saying that New College is making me the offer. Not bad, since this was one of the half dozen colleges I'd most wanted to get into.

    New is a wicked college - v.pretty, quite close to centre nd science park AND v.gd for music activities. Food was pretty darn good there at interview time too! I'm soooo jealous of you!

    I originally applied there, got sent to Hilda's for 2 extra interviews, then had Open Offer letter from Hilda's. Then found out yesterday I'd ended up at Hilda's.

    Thanks for that. You seem to have confirmed what I have read in prospectuses etc. Hope you enjoy St. Hilda's.
