Yep! Applied to:

Bristol Anthropology BA
Bristol Anthopology with Innovation MArts
Durham Anthropology BA
Exeter Anthropology and Archaeology BA
Winchester Anthropology BA

My predicted are A*AA and my GCSEs were all 8s and 9s. So far I've got offers for both the Bristol courses, Winchester and Durham!! I'm pretty set on Bristol, and will probably take just the Anth BA, as that's what I'm most interested in. I find the Bristol course to be the broadest, whereas I learnt that Exeter's anth is just social and cultural anth.
