    Hi everyone,
    I know loads of these are posted but-
    Do I stand a chance of an offer from Nottingham (Geog BA) with
    GCSE-3A* 6A
    AS-AAA (C not declared)
    A2- predicted AAA
    Just getting a bit worried as plenty of friends have already had Notts offers:mad:

    Thanks

    my grades are similar and i've applied to the exact same course. I would have thought you'd have a chance I haven't sent of my form yet though my geography teacher has been off for hte past 2 weeks and she has my reference which is the last one my form tutor need

    I had issues getting mine off too- but it as because my geog teacher couldn't be arsed- I'm not joking!

    First point, you are supposed to declare all subjects above a U.

    Anyway, I have an offer for BSc Nottingham at the moment (AAB, A in Geography) and my GCSE's were only marginally better, and my AS's worse. I was predicted 3 A's at A2, though.

    They go out in waves, so hold tight and you might get one next time around.

    I have applied for BA geography at Nottingham and, touch wood, I think I have a realistic chance. My GCSEs are 1A* 7A 2B and my AS' were AAAA. Basically, you have a very good chance...

    My only advice is that there is still time to apply for a proper subject.

    If neither of you two get offers I'd be surprised, put it that way.

    I'm afraid I have no helpful advice to the OP but UGH I have to vent!! I am a gap year student, got AAAB in my A2's (A in geog) and sent my UCAS application about three weeks ago - I applied to Durham, UCL, LSE, Bristol and Nottingham but Nottingham is the only Uni I actually want to go to. I have 'acknowledgements' from all of them in my email inbox but no letters through the post of acknowledgement. I wish they would ******* hurry up and either accept or reject me, surely its a lot simpler because I've already got my A2 grades?! Arrrgh!! I hate this waiting game.

    Because its perfect for me!! I had wanted to apply to Leicester and Cambridge and Edinburgh too, BUT my geog teacher told me that applying to Leicester would be stupid because I'm 'better than that'. (To any angry Leicester students out there, I don't necessarily agree with what he said, there were other reasons why I decided not to apply there). Decided against Edinburgh because its too far away (I live in the South of the UK and wanna go somewhere not too far away to stop me coming home regularly) and I missed the deadline for Cambridge.
