    Hey, has anyone else applied for psychology at UCL this year? I have but I havent looked round yet! But the location is amazing. I am also applying for Royal Holloway, Nottingham, Warwick and Nottingham Trent and have one offer from Royal Holloway. But I am yet to hear anything from UCL at all. Has anyone? I hate the wait! haha xxxx

    That is really weird, we have exactly the same GCSE results and exactly the same A Level predicted grades! Going for the same course at UCL aha! Where else are you applying?

    I applied for psychology at UCL. I received rejection today but you shouldn't worry I have quite specific situation. As a mature student I don't have grades and A levels connected with psychology.

    Good luck to everyone.

    you're only the second person I've seen on here that's recieved a questionnaire. The other person was international, and they sent me a copy.. but I know what you mean! I answered basically all the questions on my PS, so I'm not sure. Maybe it's just a confirmation of what you've said previously?

    How long do you get to answer and send it back?

    I meant the international person sent me a copy, not UCL! I wish they did though all this waiting It just asked q's like why do you want to study psychology. Pretty similar format to all the other subjects it sounds like xxx

    It surprises me you don't know lots of people who get the questionnaire because UCL have decided to cut down on psychology interviews to make the application process more efficient, so it stands to reason they'd send out more questionnaires to make up for it.

    The only other applicant I personally know who applied for UCL psych also got a questionnaire- not that this says very much at all- and we have two weeks to answer it.

    notyettt, I'm still thinking about/drafting my answers! I definitely think its a good thing, any opportunity to show commitment to psychology is a good thing.
