Hi. I was lucky enough to get an offer from Durham for History earlier this year (A*AA) and was ecstatic. Now on Results Day, I've got A*A*A*A and am thinking about reapplying to Oxford (I was rejected after interview). However, I'm concerned that Durham won't let me in again if I reapply, as I've heard they can be like this and can make confusing decisions. Is this a known thing? Does it depend on the college? Basically, will Durham reject you if you reapply after turning down an offer?

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be petty like that - they wouldn't know you were rejecting to put in an Oxbridge app. Wouldn't depend on the college cuz afaik Durham colleges are residential and nothing to do with central admissions. If you really want to reapply to Oxford (all things considered and would spend a year to do so; I took a gap year, not for oxbridge but you know, and it could be productive) then would go for it! Congratulations on your grades ^^
