Well I have applied for law in the university of Aberdeen,Oxford,Durham and Edinburgh
but I am not sure of the selection process as I got 89% in my class 10th and my predicted grades are 93% in 12th
and the most amazing fact is that pursued science till 12th while I had to study law which I definitely think they will find weird along with the fact that I am an international student I really don't know how my selection process would go.
And yes I have received an acknowledgement letter

I have to take all subjects (including things like geography, history, biology etc) all the way through high school. Since the relevant subjects for electrical&electronic engineering are more difficult than the humanities, it will be weird for the admissions officer to see higher grades in History than in Maths lol :')

I'm applying for molecular biology with a year in industry! I'm applying to Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian, Heriot-Watt and St. Andrews as well.
I haven't sent my application off but I'm kinda scared because I've only sat 3 Highers so far :-) I think I'm still in a good place to get a conditional but we'll have to see - haven't sent my UCAS off yet though!

I know it's not that much but I'm getting anxious after seeing all these people receiving offers after 3 days or so

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (924)
42.74%
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (411)
19.01%
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (95)
