I have been trying to get into contact with the folks over at Durham admissions since May but haven't had a reply because it is summer, therefore I figured I should a few questions I had here.
Durham is easily my top choice. I am absolutely in love with the uni in every way, but I am just unsure if I have a shot at an offer.
(I am applying to Law and I am between Castle and Hatfield for colleges)
I am doing both Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate but it seems that my AP UCAS tariff is going to be quite a bit higher than my IB one.
I have taken 5 AP's so far:
World history: 4, European History: 5, English: 5, Environmental Science: 3, US History: 5
I got 750, 710, 720 on the SAT II's
and I am 95% sure that my predicted IB grades will be 6's and 7's and for the 3 AP tests I am taking next year my predicted grades will probably be 5's (I know all these teachers and they have seen me work)
with a great recommendation and my extracurriculars are a huge highlight
thus my AP UCAS tariff would be 730 with the 3 predicted and my IB tariff is only 652
which one will they use?
and also, my grades in my individual classes are not super great because at my school classes are 90% homework and 10% exams... Will Durham ask for my transcript?
Sorry its a lot of questions. I am just really curious. If anyone could help out that'd be great
What do you think?
