    But you sent yours just before Christmas, are you actually surprised?!

    Oh, good news. I'm getting my Cambridge rejection tomorrow, so at least I will have one reply and three awaiting now. (Gotta add a fifth option and soon)

    I had to do an A-level alongside it as my college say we all need to do 3 A-levels. I wanted to do another A-level as well so I'd have 4, but wasn't allowed That National Diploma was one of the worst mistakes I've ever made.

    No I meant 2 A-levels alongside the ND as the ND is worth 2 A-levels already... if that makes sense?

    I find the ND easy but it's not relevant to my Uni choices at all and I just can't stand the subject anymore, it's boring. It's also 12 units and solely coursework based, so I do coursework everyday. It's soul destroying.

    oh so youre doing the National certificate which is 12 and ND is 18 units, that what im doing, the problem with thse is you're so limited to what you can do at university

    Nah it's a National Diploma. I'm with OCR, not BTEC.

    The Uni's I've applied to say that they accept them but it's still worrying me, hence why I'm getting so impatient and just want an offer to come through to put my mind at ease.

    I applied nearly 3 months ago and I've only had one offer from a uni i now strongly don't want to go to. My hope is that the scottish ones don't reply till feb/march (although I'm not scottish. meaning they won't like me. sob).
