Good choice! Same course as me so hopefully see you there :smile: Not sure if you've seen it but on the admission stats for England, Wales and Northern Ireland the offer rate is 72% whereas it sits at only 21% for Scotland : / One competitive course so we will need to get a strong PS hahaha

Good Luck mate : )

Thanks for making the thread!
When do you reckon we will hear back?

A) law and also law with philosophy
B) glasgow, Edin, kcl
C) Predicted AAA at advanced higher
D) AAAAAA at Nat 5 and AAAAA at Higher
E) my extra curriculars are rubbish - Grade 4 flute, job as a waitress and volunteering with Rainbows, entered a couple of essay comps. Done lots of subject reading and research so hopefully that makes up for it.

they said on my email: We will communicate our decision by the UCAS deadline of 19 May 2022, however it will likely be sooner.

why would it be so late? i'm predicted 4A* and it's my non medical 5th option so my PS is on medicine and not neuroscince which is what i'm applying to, but i do talk about neuropsychology
