I hoped someone else would create this thread, but it appears no one else has. Hopefully there are a few more of us around!

Here's a template of sorts (shamelessly stolen from the English thread):

I suppose we can use this thread to discuss applications, reading, offers etc. I hope I'm not the only one!

University choices: Cambridge, St Andrews, Durham, Exeter and Nottingham.
Subjects: Biology, Chemistry and Philosophy (GPR dropped at the beginning of this year)
Predicted grades: D2 (equivalent to A*, I'm doing Pre U Philosophy), A* in Biology and A in Chemistry.
Achieved a D3 (A) in GPR last year.
GCSE grades: 6A*s and 4As
Current offers: conditional from Exeter and an unconditional from Nottingham (if I put them as my firm)

Great to finally find some other philosophy applicants, there doesn't seem to be many of us (although I suppose that works to our advantage!).

Looking forward to hopefully seeing a few more people on this thread!

Predicted A2 grades: A A A
AS grades: A A B D (the D was in French which I dropped)

Im kind of worried because I really love the look of the Birmingham course, it looks much more current than the other traditional ones, which look boring to me, but I saw a post on here about how someone really didn’t like studying it at Birmingham and was going to drop out :/// I’ve had offers from Bristol and Warwick which are more prestigious but I don’t like the course as much do any of you have any information about the Birmingham course?
