    Hiya,

    So I applied to Durham back in November. I've received an offer from all of my choices (St Andrews, York, Exeter and Warwick) so far and am still waiting on Durham. I've applied for English and History (with predicted grades of A*AA and an EPQ at an A so have reached their requirements) and was wondering if anyone is in the same boat or has any advice?

    One of the problems that has come out of this is that the universities don't have to accept or reject your offer until the 3rd May, which is before some of the applications for accomodation. Given that in some places this is a first come first serve basis, it may impact on the quality of the offers of accomodation that I get, so has anyone got any advice on that either?

    Thanks for the help in advance

    You just have to wait unfortunately. You will probably only get sent accommodation info once you have firmed.

    Thank you for your help. It is the other universities that I am worried about because their applications from accomodation open before the deadline which Durham have to reach. Hopefully I'll hear back from them sooner than that though.
