Not 100% sure myself. Single Maths definitely, Physics probably and I really like the look of 'Microbiology and biomedicine' but also think 'Human physiology and exercise science', psychology, 'computing and communications' and the engineering pathways look interesting. I'll probably go with maths, physics and 'microbiology and biomedicine' but as you can probably tell, I'm still not fully decided. I do maths, physics and computer science a levels at the moment so obviously the microbiology and biomedicine is a bit different but I just like the look of the modules and there's no subject requirement that would stop me from doing it.
The flexibility of the course is why I wanted to do it in the first place but thereโ€™s almost too many choices ๐Ÿ˜‚ definitely better than a course where you donโ€™t want to do any of the modules though

I really hope you get an offer my eldest daughter studies physics, particle physics and cosmology there and shes in second year.
Everyone does physics in first year and the teaching is excellent. Dr Sobral and Bertram are very good in particular. Second year her friends are all still together studying physics in a lot of lessons, but have separate lectures/labs for their more specialised subject be it astro, particle, theoretical or straight physics. Fingers crossed

What course are you applying for?: English Literature and Creative Writing.
What subjects are you currently studying?: Ancient History, English Literature and French.
Predicted A level grades: A*AB.
GCSE grades: 9 in English Literature, 8 in Drama, 8 in English Language, 7 in History, 7 in French, 6 in Spanish, 6 in RE, 5-5 in Combined Science and 4 in Maths.
What other universities are you applying to?: York, Manchester, Manchester Met and LJMU. I've had offers back from all four of these universities.
Why Lancaster?: Because of the collegiate system and atmosphere. It's close to home and reminds me of York, my first choice uni. It has the strongest Creative Writing department in the country.
What have you done strengthen your application (extracurriculars)?: Working with a writing group, taken HE English classes, read prolifically.


Also, I applied on the 6th of December and it's now the 16th of January. I sent in a Creative Writing Portfolio on the 10th or 11th of December at their request, but haven't heard back from them since. Should I be concerned?

No you shouldn't be concerned. Unis generally close over the festive period and staff would only have started to return from 4 Jan. Don't worry.
