This is my first time applying. I barely thought about it until I took the Birmingham written test which made it all seem real! Now I'm obsessing about it, probably to avoid dissertation anxiety for my masters. :D

I've applied to:

Birmingham
Oxford
Royal Holloway
Southampton

Good luck everyone!

Not sure whether the rule still stands this year, but typically people only post when they get news, otherwise you get reams of thread pages that are then repeated once news comes through?

That's usually the stated rule, I've never once seen it stuck to though :P I think everyone likes getting involved and seeing where people are applying to :)
