Hi everyone

Thought I would make a thread specifically for Durham Geography applicants for 2021 entry.

Please share:

Predicted/achieved A level Grades
GCSE Grades
College you are applying to
Why you want to study Geography at Durham

Predicted/achieved A level Grades: Geography A* English Lit A* History A

GCSE Grades: 98776666543 (not the best I know, failed Spanish, will this make them not even consider my application?)

Extracurriculars: EPQ, DofE, MUNGA, loads of books, MOOCs, few competitions, tutoring, charity work

College you are applying to: No idea

Why you want to study Geography at Durham: Like the college system, academically focused but more relaxed than oxbridge

Thanks livia. Nothing here at all. I’ve had acknowledgements from all the others though - Cambridge, LSE, Bath, UCL. No idea what’s going on.

Just wanted to say I got an offer yesterday to do Geography at Durham. I don't know if this is helpful for anyone but I was constantly checking this page before I got my offer !!!!!
