I'm keeping everything crossed she goes for this as its 3 hours from home not 6-7 so I can keep more of a check on her mental health this time and she will be able to stay under the team here for her condition.
Thats great news, especially the unconditional offer. Our daughter chose her university as its only an hour from home, plus its a good university and she liked it. But the big deciding factor for her was that she can get home for occasional weekends or we can get to her if she needed us.

Good luck to those who are still waiting 🤞
Congratulations to your DD on her Oxford offer. My DD is in her 3rd year and has loved every minute of it. Such an amazing place to live and learn

i'm usually just a dibb lurker (moleymole's daughter here!) but thought i'd post since this is very relevant for me at the minute!

i've applied for psychology at durham, ucl, bath (with placement year), warwick and birmingham.

i applied december 12th and got my first offer from durham a week later - reduced from AAA to AAB, but if i firm it, it's a contextual offer of BBB. very happy as durham is my first choice, and i'm looking forward to college allocation and the post-offer day next month.

this week i've also heard back from birmingham (AAA) and ucl (A*AA). i wasn't expecting to be accepted to ucl since i don't take any sciences other than psychology, and ucl prefers two and told me i'd be at a disadvantage because of that.

now just need to hear back from warwick and bath, but i think bath psychology offers with placement take notoriously long for people to receive. my heart is set on durham, even though the ucl offer is very tempting.

Just been catching up on this thread as I've been off the Dibb for a while

Such a lot of exciting news for lots of young Dibblets!
And still an anxious wait ahead for some

I posted earlier on the thread - but update on my son, he has the last of his Medicine interviews next month at St Andrews.
He had an unconditional offer for Astrophysics too, but is still considering a gap year and travelling abroad volunteering at the moment.

Looks like I might be on a similar thread for next year!
I'm in two minds about his decision to take a gap year but I suppose he will be a year older, wiser, and more mature, and as Medicine is a 6 year course I can kind of see why he might benefit from a year out.

Good luck to all!

Completely unrelated to the topic of this thread but my DD has just passed her driving test! Yay!

Although that does mean we will now have to sort out insurance on my little Citigo and maybe think about getting her her own car. It might make getting to and from Uni easier in the future though.

My DD is still in the midst of interviews! She has had interviews and offers from Huddersfield and Coventry and went to Sheffield yesterday. She's still got Northumbria and Liverpool to go in the next two weeks. Its all been very hectic since Christmas as she's had to reschedule a couple of her Mock exams because of interview clashes. I'll be so glad once she receives all decisions so that she know what her options are. She is applying for Occupational Therapy.

On another point does anyone know when we apply for student finance do we have to name their first choice course or is left open until after results? Thanks

Good luck to everyone still awaiting interviews / decisions

You put down your first choice and then change it if necessary later on
