It was because I’d attended a summer school at Durham where I was interviewed and did tests. I passed them and so got a guaranteed reduced offer

Hey I've recently applied to study Physics!
Achieved Higher- AAAAA (maths, english, physics, biology, chemistry)
Advanced Higher predictions- AAA (chem maths and physics) my school doesn't offer the scottish equivalent of further maths so that was sad and there is no a* in Scotland.
I've Applied to Oxford, Imperial, St andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow!
Currently have an offer (unconditional) from Glasgow.

Hello!
Unis: Oxford Physics
Imperial Physics with a year abroad
Durham: Physics
Manchester: Physics with a Year in Europe
Bristol: Physics with International Experience

For the predicted grades, i’m in the French system, so it won’t interest anyone

And I have an interview at Manchester in a few weeks, but no other offers yet!
