applying to: Cambridge (pembroke college), the Courtauld, St. Andrews, UCL and York

A level grades: already got A for maths, and the predicts are A* in history and economics, A/A* in physics (my physics teacher refuses to tell me which one it is)
I submitted my application in early october before the oxbridge deadline, and i ready got offers from york and ucl, with conditions of AB and AA respectively.
My dream school is probably the courtauld, as cambridge is not very likely to offer me a place.....
as an international student i also had to take IELTS, for which i got an 8 overall.

I'm doing Spanish, English and Art History (Pre U), predicted A*AA. I've applied for St Andrews, Edinburgh, Courtauld, Bristol and Brighton. I got a CC offer from Brighton to study History of Art and Design, and AAB from Bristol to do History of Art and Italian. I'd love to go to Edinburgh or SA most to study History of Art and Italian but haven't had any offers yet!

Good luck to everyone

Hey,

So I'm in my first year at the Courtauld, and for a lot of people I've spoken to, the Courtauld was their last offer. I applied around early December, and only received anything back at almost the last minute.
They take a while, I wouldn't stress!

I was initially asked to interview (all HoA applicants are) but I’m overseas (not international) so explained that this wouldn’t be easy for me and they kindly gave me an offer without an interview
