If you have an Advanced Higher in something like physics or maths then you might get an offer. Otherwise you dont stand a chance. St Andrews get 11,000 applications a year now and they have been quite ruthless as of late sad.gif

John, you really would like Aberdeen - I promise you! Please come!
And, like paul says, there is "wiggle room" and you can take and change a few subjects...

Aberdeen is actually quite a nice uni and its pretty decent for maths (not sure about physics) and its only 25 return to glasgow, and you only go home at xmas and easter lol tongue.gif.

But by the sounds of things looks like your only interested in glasgow

Pfft forget all this expensive 25 or 10 return nonsense, just get the megabus and it'll cost like 50p. Okay not quite, but it's well cheap.

What am I saying this for?

MON TAE GLASGOW! (You get to pretend you're posh and still go to Strathy union for 12 hour Tuesdays!)

Buses suck arse though.

And i don't care about pretending to be posh, and tbh Glasgow Uni is definitely not posh, for a start it's located in GLASGOW!!!

Bristol - ABB (maths A, physics and something else B) or AAC (maths A, physics A, and something else). They didn't say whether it's maths or applied maths but I don't think it matters too much. I'm serioulsy considering this one as well, I really like Bristol.

I also had my Cambridge interview yesterday, I should be expecting my rejection at the start of next month.

Has anyone had offers from St. Andrews yet? I've not heard anything from them except one email sad.gif

I m a university ambassador for st andrews and I can tell you that they have only one admissions tutor per department, so in addition to this they lecture undergraduate classes and also research. Plus we havent been sending out offer letters yet (cos ambassadors get drafted in to make up the offer packs as well as give tours on open days). You will get either an acception or rejection letter through the post when you hear on UCAS (due to the fact we get 11000 applications per year for first year courses!) we cant send out an ackowledgement of your application. There arent enough of us to do that tongue.gif

What department are you applying to at St Andrews? I am a second year mathematics student at St Andrews so my tutor is the guy who would decide whether u got in or not tongue.gif

Ah, I see, with that many applicants I can imagine the process would take a while. I'm applying to the maths department, so I'm guessing it will be your tutor I should be sending bribes to tongue.gif

Yeah Dr Bell room 321 Mathematical Institute St Andrews Uni, tongue.gif.

What kind of maths course are you applying for? PS we have some godly lecturers at St Andrews, the legend that is Dr Olsen for example tongue.gif. Where else will some teach you that you have to learn how to read, telling the entire class for algebra and analysis that they cant read and demonstrating this by reading out passages from my first book of fairies tongue.gif.

And what division of maths do you want to specialise in? I m only doing Bsc(Hons) and not the MMath so i dont know much about the structure of that course!

Waaay.
Same Bristol offer as me. And I had my interview yesterday. Fitz is so the bestest college ever. Anyway, which college? I have no idea how mine went. My subject interview was interesting and the questions weren't too bad. I hadn't seen much like them but I think I got most stuff eventually, after much prompting. The general one was utter crap to put it politely. I got asked some staightforeward questions I couldn't answer, managed a little maths after being an eejit, and then managed to forget everything about my PS. Should have read my book twice.

And I've heard thata lot of people get in after thinking that. It means the interviewer was able to push you.
