    Well, I'm Eve.

    I'm applying for Social Work at UoN. I'm very nervous because I know the university and subject is very highly ranked and I have no doubt it'll be tremendously competitive. This is my 3rd time I've gone through UCAS (very long story but I'm here now aha) and I applied for Nursing in 2013 and got rejected.

    I'm 24 now, doing an Access Course in Social Sciences. I'm much better prepared than I was at 17 or 20. I'm a support worker for adults with LD and I'm very passionate about social justice and the role of social workers. I've had personal experiences more recently where social services have impacted my life, and I would like to put myself in that position of being able to bring some improvement to the lives of our most vulnerable in society.

    I'm going to the open day tomorrow (16th September) and really looking forward to it.

    Hellooooo!
    I'm katie 21, and I'm applying for 2018 entry!
    I'm applying for adult nursing!
    Looking forward to living in university accommodation! I recently did two years of a midwifery degree and lived at home and hated it!
    Most nervous about making friends! Apparently my course is mainly studied at the uni hospital so worried I won't be on campus much with the people I live with!
    Also, shottingham?😂😑 xx

    I'm Luke, I'm applying to do Chemistry at the UoN for 2018 entry.
    So nervous about going to a new city, knowing no one.
    Picking Nottingham as the city looks very student-oriented and I know that the University itself as well as the chemistry department are very highly regarded.
    Excited to explore a new city/campus and meet many new people.
    Let's hope I get an offer eh😋

    I'm Chloe and I've applied to study English and French for 2018 entry.
    Fortunately, I don't live very far from Nottingham, so I could stay at home for my studies. However, I'm looking forward to studying in a new city, given that the town I currently go to for sixth form is quite boring!
    Undoubtedly, I'm most excited about joining societies (particularly the Cake Society at Nottingham!) so that I can meet lots of people, yet I can't wait to study my two favourite subjects in greater depth (and, of course, go on a year abroad to either France or Belgium!).[*]If I'm nervous about anything, I suppose it would be the prospect of starting afresh. Since I've only been at my current school for just a year, I somewhat groan at the idea of having leave and start elsewhere again, yet I know that it will be worth it because Nottingham Uni looks great![*]Sent off my UCAS a fortnight ago, so I'm hoping it won't be too long before I receive a response from Nottingham!

    Hi I'm Pippa and have applied to do medical physics. Just got an email today saying that I've been given an offer however I have to attend an interview to discuss entry requirements (the standard is A*AA). Has this happened for any other courses, and is the interview a proper interview or just a talk?

    A serious driven application, as a mature student uni of Nottingham will likely make you an offer on widening participation. They did for me last year, im 27 now was 26 at the time!

    Unconditional offer of AAA?

    Do you mean either it’s conditional or you’ve already achieved those grades? ☺️

    I'm applying for Classical Civilizations for 2018 entry.
    Since I'm a care leaver my GCSE grades weren't that great due to personal circumstances (these past few years were quite dark for me to say the least) but my predicted grades are AAA and the idea of moving to a new place and to new people doesn't really scare me as much as I'm sure it does others.

    Of course I know that my experience is going to a lot more different than the average student because I won't have a family to go back to. I've heard that the support system at Nottingham is quite decent plus it has a great reputation nationally and worldwide. I hope I get an offer.

    I'm on a gap year and did my A Levels last year, so I've already got the grades AAA.

    International Management in the Business School on Jubilee Campus.
    Not the easiest of Unis though one must say lol. But overall great facilities, nice professors. They do act like they care about us, and people in general at the Uni are pretty polite.

    Hey, I applied to read law at Nottingham as well. Just wondering if you've received an offer yet because I haven't. I got an offer from kings though so i think I did okay with the lnat so that can't be the issue, right?

    Hey man! No, I haven't got an offer yet. They haven't messaged me since early November which worries me a little.

    What was King's expected LNAT score? You did well in the LNAT's now that Kings accepted you, so don't worry there. How are your grades looking by the way?
