I couldn’t find an offer holders thread so thought I would make one.
So make yourselves known and tell us a bit about yourself eg course, offer, predicted/attained grades, college choice etc

Hi
I've got an unconditional offer (I took my A-levels last year) for Biological Sciences.

I'm not too sure which college to choose yet - I left my college choice on UCAS as 'open'. Ideally I'd like to be in self-catered accommodation as I love to cook.

I'm guessing that you're asking me, but my grades were AAA.

That’s a bonus! Well done! Been looking at the contextual criteria and looks quite strict (and not just due to state school education) that some believe!!

So far I've got an offer for York, but I'm still waiting to hear from St Andrews, Bath and Edinburgh. I've not managed to visit the uni yet, so I'm planning on waiting for the post offer day before firming

Have you submitted your college preferences yet?

I really like the look of John Snow - the accommodation looks really nice and it's not too far from Bioscience! I'm still having a bit of a research for the other colleges before I submit my preferences.

It seems like its a bit of a pain how all of the food shops are so far away from the self catered colleges :\

Yes that’s why i liked john snow because it wasn’t too far from the bio department and the accommodation is really nice!
Ye it is a pain with how far away the food shops are - although i have heard some people in their flats just get it delivered!

May I ask a question, do you get allocated a college before you accept your place, have filled out the preference for college but wondered how it worked

Yes. But not specific accommodation (ie - share room, en suite), that happens when you accept

I just got an offer for Physics. The conditions are A*A*A.
I'm predicted 4A*s in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry.
I put Collingwood College first on my application. I would prefer to be in catered accomodation, and definitely don't want to be in a shared room.

Out of interest, how many of you are Oxbridge rejects?
