Hi! I'm applying with the normal BC diploma so its pretty sus but its alright. I chose Bristol, UCL, St Andrews and Edinburgh for my programs and I plan on studying English. Although living and studying in England has always been the dream, I don't want to be in debt for the rest of my days and wont be attending unless I get a scholarship (probably). Anyhow, I applied in late January and have heard back from Bristol but no others quite yet. I already got offers from all the Canadian unis I applied to so now its just a waiting game. Cheers!

Have you received from McGill?
I applied since November but still have not heard back.
For toronto, I have received offers from all the campuses I applied.
For UBC, I applied really really late. So I expect to get an offer late as well.

Anyway in the UK, I have offers from Manchester Bristol Sheffield. Waiting from UCL.
For Cambridge, I got the interviewed and I was pooled. Then the application was unsuccessful.

I have (achieved not predicted)
A Level Maths - A* (100% UMS)
A Level Further Maths - A* (100% UMS)
A Level Physics - A* (97% UMS)
AS Level Chemistry - A (92% UMS)

Yeah I got my McGill acceptance for Arts on February 4th. For UofT i got accepted to st. george Trinity College. Dont worry though, different programs accept at different times! I'm waiting on UCL too! I hear they have too many apps so they're taking a while.
You seem like a great candidate! Here are some of my marks: AP Psychology: 97%, Anatomy and Physiology: 98%, AP studio art: 95%, English Studies 12: 95%, AP European History: 92%. I have a bunch more art and English classes that are in the same ballpark but idk which ones are considered as "academic" per se.

Btw no offense, just asking.
Why do some people like to use the term accepted/acceptance instead of offer?
Technically I think offer is a more accurate term to use?

"admitted" and "accepted" are less wordy than saying "given an offer". Um they're interchangeable and in general my peers and I use accepted and offer is more of a British thing. It doesn't really matter though.
