University?

I was just wondering how everyone is doing with their uni aplications?

So far i've had an offer from Leeds and today after an interview i got and offer from Birmingham(both of these are for Medical Science) I have like a brief interview in manchester next week for the same thing.

My other 3 choices were Medicine haven't had any offer yet but with ABB as my predicted grades i think i will get interviews!

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Nope, no offers yet. But then again, no one I know of has had any offers from the N.Irish unis (Queen's and Ulster), and those are the only two that I've applied to. I got 3 frigign A's so they had better let me in or I'm going to throw another strop. Just hope they don't find out about me sleeping around a bit just to make sure of those grades.

Jen, is it cold out there or are you just pleased to see me?

Don't go to Brum. You get stabbed when sun bathing.

I was going to apply to Queen's.

But I'm applying next year instead. And then it's Oxbridge baby

two and a half years ago, I got 2 As and a B and still got rejection so don't count on it, I am not putting you off, but sometimes they are not really only looking at grades.

Good Luck

Well I mean the highest I've applied for is 2A's and a B for Law and Accounting and the course I REALLY want to do is 3B's so I'll be narked if I don't get that. What courses with what grades had you applied for?

I have 3 points, 39 to go

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Well we get offers (we normally put down 6 choices), then we choose 2 main offers (a firm one and a conditional one), and then just hope to God we get the grades to prefarbly get into our first choce one.

Kind of. Well if you get good grades then there's more chance of getting a decent place, although with some unis it really depends on whether you're in the know or not, and what kind of educational background you'vre had.

here too, well for some studies when too many students want to get in, but when you are an 8+ student then you have free choice!
and you need special subjects for some studies!
