Hi so there’s a Durham applicants 2022 thread already if you want to look it up. You can ask people on there if they have offers for English etc as I believe most people look at that. There’s also an offer holders thread for people with offers if that hopefully ends up being you!!

Yeah no problem, maybe just put a thing in the other thread to let people know and you’ll probably get a couple people come over here from it!! Good luck!!

Yes durham is my first choice! I applied last year and didn’t get a reduced offer for EPQ which I got an A in, they don’t really tend to consider it. My offer last year was reduced contextually with AAA but I was doing a different course - I got in as I got three A*’s but am now reapplying to do English.

I’ve also applied to Warwick, Liverpool and St. andrews :smile:

How come you’re reapplying? Did you take a gap year?
I’m applying for English, it’s definitely my top choice and I’m still waiting! I’m on a gap year as well!

It’s a very long story…I’m applying for english now but was doing English and history before changing last year. Long story short, the admissions team at Durham saidI had never accepted my place when in reality I did. They said I was the victim of a technical glitch and that I could defer but I chose to reapply as at the time it completely put me off Durham as I was appalled at their administration. After some thought, I still want to go despite this as the quality of education is so good and I really do love it there as my girlfriend and close friends go. It was a terrible incident but i’m still wanting to go there:smile:

Oh wow! That’s awful but I understand why you’ve reapplied. Well done for not letting that put you off completely!

Is it okay to ask why you switched from History and English to English?

Has anyone heard back from Durham for English yet? I’m a History and English applicant and applied in October but I’ve got nothing, it seems that the history offers are rolling out but English I’m unsure about

Hi! Just wondering if you know people at Durham have you heard anything about John Snow and Josephine Butler colleges there? Well done for reapplying too- I've gathered from this year with the amount of applicants still waiting that their admissions is quite unreliable! :/

Hi, I applied for English in November and still haven’t heard a thing, haven’t even had one of the pity emails for months. Slightly losing hope but never mind! Anyone heard anything?
