Of course you'll get offers. With AS results like those and good predictions there should be no problem at all. (apart maybe from Cambridge where competition is intense)
I will do - if I get any offers at all, I'll be ecstatic!
Can I ask for some advice though? I am predicted AAA, and for AS I got AAAAB (1 mark off an A, one unit being retaken), and in the subjects I am doing for A2, I got AAB for those at AS. (Sorry, being very long winded here).
So far I am definitely applying to:
Cambridge - AAA
Durham - AAA
York - AAB
I have gone off Sheffield a bit, and also considering Nottingham, Warwick, Lancaster. But how low should my insurance offer be? I can't see myself getting BBB, but is ABB too high? I need some advice, as I have a few AAB universities, and it depends how many of those I pick.
This is a tricky one since you seem to be planning to apply to 'premier league' Universities exclusively (and indeed no reason why you shouldn't). In view of that I'd have thought that you are not likely to get an offer lower than ABB. So ... go for the lowest insurance offer which really is at a Uni. that you genuinely wish to attend. At least, that's my advice. However I do think that you should be discussing this with the person at school who has responsibility for UCAS applications.
Also, do you know anything about Nottingham University for History?
Not a great deal really. Check to see what score they got for teaching. The only evidence I have is annecdotal and somewhat out of date. Besides, what suits one person well is not good for another ... and I don't know you personally so find it hard to judge whether it is somewhere that would suit you.
Don't know whether you know, but in class we've been using a great website (activehistory.co.uk), and this activity (http://www.activehis...ia/frameset.htm) has been really useful in understanding Russia
Yes, indeed. An excellent site. Mr Tarr, whose site it is, is known to me personally and he does sometimes answer questions here. However, the reason why I rarely recommend the site on this Forum is because it is a 'subscription only' site. The page you mention is one of several 'freebies' that Mr Tarr offers. I'll tell him how highly you rate his work. I know he'll be pleased.
The subscription to the site is not all that expensive and if I were you I would urge your teacher to take one out for your school's History Department. That would then give you access to all Mr Tarr's excellent materials most of which are password protected.
