hi everyone! so I just saw that there was a lack of a thread just for offer holders where we can discuss college allocations when they come around, amongst other stuff - congrats on getting an offer too!

just as a note, I would intend this mostly for those who consider Durham to be their top (or at least insurance) choice.

I'll just put some stats to introduce myself down below, feel free to do the same x

Subject: English
Offer: Unconditional (post A-Level applicant)
A-Level subjects: English lit, History, Maths
College applied to: St Cuth's
Why Durham?: beautiful city, love the collegiate system, great theatre scene!

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hi,
Subject: Accounting and Finance

Offer: Unconditional (post-A-Level applicant)
A-Level subjects: Maths, Econ, Bio
College applied to: University
Why Durham?: Good reputation, liked the collegiate system, nice place to study
I am waiting on decisions from LSE and Warwick. If I get an offer from either of them, Durham will be my insurance, but if not then I shall firm Durham.

Hi everyone, I'm Hannah
Course: English literature
Offer: AAA
A-level subjects: English literature, History and Religious Studies
College applied to: St Mary's because I couldn't make it all the way up the hill to look at Trevelyan.
Why Durham?: Ever since I visited on a school trip I loved it and have always dreamt of going there and now it may become a reality. I love how traditional it is and everyone seems so friendly.
Update: I got into John Snow College and thought I would hate it but its actually really nice so Durham will probably be my firm now!
