Good morning all and happy Friday

I've just received a rejection from Jesus College for History & English which you will see on the spreadsheet.

I was expecting this outcome but am nonetheless proud of myself for giving it a go. I've received a fantastic offer from Royal Holloway which admittedly I am more drawn to as the modules look fantastic and more to my liking than those offered at Oxford.

I truly believe the Oxford path simply wasn't meant to be for myself and am looking forward to pursuing this joint honours elsewhere!

A massive good luck to all of you awaiting a response for your application. Please try to refrain from feeling upset if you receive a rejection, it does not mean you are not good enough... it just means life has a different plan for you x
I wish I could have your positive outlook. I am really struggling with my rejection. I received an email on Saturday and I spent the whole day in bed. I am utterly devastated as it has been my dream to study at Oxford since I started secondary school. That was the reason I worked so hard at school. I am seriously thinking about applying next year now as I’m scared I won’t hear from other Uni’s this year also as my GCSE were downgraded (I was always on track for 9s until GCSE mocks when I was ill (diagnosed with severe anxiety start of year 11 and put on meds). As I didn’t do well in three of my subjects I received 7s (even though in my Autumn report I was still on track for 9s!!). I am angry and upset as I feel let down by my school at that time as I can’t help wondering if that was the reason.

Waiting to hear back is honestly such a nightmare - let the email refreshing routine begin! It doesn’t help that I have anxiety
The wait for History has been so long at this point I honestly don't care what they tell me as long as I get an email. They could send me an email saying "haha you suck no way" and it would be better than this agonising wait lmao

I know my son heard in December. This is a short wait, it just feels like a long time but just look at the long view.

So sorry to hear this and honestly may well be the reason.Do wait and see what happens with your other unis and maybe you will want to apply next year or maybe you will get an offer or find something in clearing or extra. I am sure you are in shock now understandably but at the best of times Oxford is a punt and never a given. Even out of those who get an interview 2 out of 3 get rejected at least.
Look after yourself and there really is more to life than Oxford, so much more. Sending a virtual hug.
