Okayyyy
I do Maths, Chemistry, Geography and EPQ, and am predicted A*AA*A respectively. (I really should have written those in a different order so it would say A*A*AA instead, but there you go)
I have applied to Oxford, Bristol, Edinburgh, UCL and Manchester for Geography, but I've received no offers yet.
Super super nervous ahhhh

I have applied to Oxford (St Johns), Imperial (Earth and Planetary Science), UCL, Bristol and St Andrews.
Offers so far are unconditional from Bristol, UCL and St Andrews.

Good luck
