I wholeheartedly agree with Optimisticgirl's post. I am also a durham graduate without a first class degree who has been admitted.

Sounds like you have a shot, so it would absolutely be worth applying. Also get friends/professors/careers advisers to read your application and CV.

Thank you for this. It is easy to get bogged down and start self-selecting yourself out of the equation. Sometimes you just need a bit of reassurance. I will absolutely give it a go. Cheesy, but 'you miss 100% of the shots you don't take'. Cheers for taking the time to give me a boost, much appreciated.
