Gahh. I got 37 and my condition was 38 for St Andrews! What should I do? Should I email them asking them if they could pardon me? Or should I wait for the grade boundaries to leak for me to see if i should give any papers for re-evaluation? how long does that take anyway? (I have to still apply for my student visa etc) Any other ideas? Thanks so much, and good luck for your results!
Hi everybody! A while ago, I received the last reply from the unis I applied to. The offers I got are from St Andrews (36 points) and Durham (38, 666 at HL). Though, I got rejected from Cambridge - and I'd really love to study there. I think I do have rather strong chances of getting in (how modest of me! ). I was pretty unlucky this year (had some health problems which got in the way) and my application ended up a bit below my expectations. I had predicted 42 points overall, but with 667 at HL (including 6 from the subject I chose to study). Apart from that, I think I screwed up my interview So I guess I could just get over it (I mean rejection from Cabridge) and choose something else... but the problem is that I really believe that studying there is within my reach. So I'd like to get my results in July and hopefuly reapply. However, I would prefer not to take a gap year because I wouldn't like to lose a place at St Andrews or Durham and be left with nothing if I won't do well enough on the exams. So my question is - can I accept an offer from St Andrews/Durham and reapply from that position next year? If so, which of these two would you recommend? I think I would be pretty happy studying at St Andrews - I really like the fact that I could join my interests and study 2 subjects (and get a master's degree after 4 years!). Also the location and size of the town really appeals to me Though, isn't Durham - I'm interested in geography - academically better? I am at a loss, could anyone give me some advice? Sorry for a lengthy post!
Hey everyone! According to the St. Andrews scholarship website, applicants for the Scholarship in Honour of Their Royal Highness The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (wow that's lengthy) should have been informed today of the status of their application. I know that there is only one recipient of the scholarship out of every applicant from all over the world ... however I thought that unsuccessful applicants would have received a friendly email letting them know. Has anyone heard anything from St. Andrews about this award? Or is anyone on here perhaps the lucky recipient?! If so .... congratulations!!! Thanks
