    Oh thats so good, congrats!
    I applied to LSE, Lincoln, Bath, Bristol and Birmingham, 4 offers so far but I haven't heard from the LSE yet, I've heard they don't give offers until January/Feb.
    Applied at the start of November with predictions A*A*A (not that I think I deserve those haha)

    Hi! I'm pleased to have found this thread. I've applied for Social Policy at Bristol and York as well as politics at other universities... I hadn't considered SP until about a month ago so it's been quite stressful adjusting my personal statement and having my reference edited too. I only sent my application on Thursday and have not heard anything yet. My predicted grades aren't great, BBC, but now my application is sent all we can do is work towards the best grades we can! Best of luck to you guys!

    I’m studying psychology, sociology and geography and I did a drama BTEC level 3 at AS.
    Btw I don’t know if it applies to you but Bristol offered me a conditional offer of BBC despite the course being ABB because my college is in the lowest 20%. You should look into the contextual offer requirements and see if you qualify it if you’re worried😊 hope that helps x

    Hello! Yeah if they were to give me an offer I am eligible for the contextual thankfully. I really love how clear Bristol's admissions policy is, especially regarding contextual offers, and I can't think of anywhere that compares. How do you find sociology? I always kick myself that I didn't choose it over RS

    I really enjoy it, it’s probably my favourite. It requires you to remember lots of names but besides that I find the content really easy to understand x

    Oh that is so frustrating, glad I haven't suffered that. I can tell you it will be a reply from Leeds though bc I've heard LSE don't reply until Jan/Feb, I'm sure it'll be an offer though your grades are so high

    Do you know if it's a problem just for you? I've just logged into track and all was fine so unless you know it's just a problem for you maybe try again?!

    Hello! What's your plan at the moment?
    I had to apply for another course since my predicted grades were so low but i'm going to try and get an A in Sociology which I think is achievable and hopefully get atleast a B in the rest of my subjects.
