128 Ucas points from both courses at Plymouth.
AAB for the masters at Southampton
ABB for the Bsc marine bio and oceanography

I got both from Plymouth the day after and Southampton took just over a week.

Congratulations! Which one is your first choice? The Southampton Msci program is my first choice.

Thank you! I’m going to firm Southampton masters and insure the bachelors I think. So I’m not too bothered about hearing from Exeter if they reject me or accept me

That is great! Hopefully, if I get into Southampton I will see you on campus. If all goes well, I was going firm Southampton and my insurance was Plymouth.

All the best! I thought about doing that but Because I did an EPQ Southampton can likely accept me if I didn’t meet the grades for the bachelors...

I was really impressed with Southampton's facilities, but I also like Plymouth's professional diving course. I would honestly be very happy at all three Universities (Southampton, Exeter or Plymouth) but for different reasons. Congratulations again

That is awesome! Congratulations! What is your first choice?

Since my first post, I received offers from Southampton, Exeter and Plymouth for all of the programs I applied for. I received the offers about a week after I submitted my application (if anyone is interested in how long it took the Universities to review my application and are waiting for responses to their own applications). I didn't check UCAS for a week after I submitted my application because I was away on a school trip. I know it is nerve-wracking waiting for a response, so I was trying not to think about it while I was away!

So far my first choice is Newcastle, even though I got the same offer of grades from Bangor and Newcastle, but Bangor wanted an A in biology

My first choice is Southampton's Msci program, but Exter's offer was a bit harder. Southampton wanted 17 points total for my 3 HL IB subjects, but Exeter wanted 6,6,6 = 18 points for my HL IB subjects. Both wanted 34 IB points overall. I was more worried about Southampton's offer when I applied because I really like their facilities and program.

Good luck with Newcastle! I have heard Bangor's program is really good too, but I didn't get a chance to visit there.
