Hi, I sent my application off on the 9th October, applying for History of Art. I know its early days yet but hopefully, more people will reply to this thread soon!

I applied to (in order of preference) The Courtauld, Oxford (Lincoln College), Edinburgh, Birmingham and St Andrews.

My predicted grades are A*, A*, A* in History, English Literature and Art and Design.

So far, I've received acknowledgements from all accept The Courtauld, but no decisions yet!

Edit 1 - I have received two offers! -

Birmingham gave me an offer on October 27th - CCC/BBB dependant on whether I firm it or not

Offer from St Andrews received on 9th November - ABB

Rejection from Oxford (post-interview) - 12th January 2021

I have applied for the History of Art courses at
The Courtauld Institute, St Andrews, University of York, University of East Anglia and Cambridge.

My predicted grades are A*,A*,A in English Literature, Geography and Classical Civilisation, fingers crossed it will be what I achieve!!

watching all the other subjects and colleges send out decisions rn on the other thread and it's so scary haha. I keep hitting refresh on the spreadsheet and having a little adrenaline rush at every email notification.

Is anyone else on this thread applying to Christ Church at Oxford?

hi! I've applied for history of art at Cambridge too (Magdelene) but still haven't heard anything about interviews :/ I know someone applying to queens has been given an interview. I thought we would have heard by now seeing as we didn't need to do a pre interview assessment but apparently not?
