    Some universities are faster than others, and it completely depends on how popular/competitive the course and university is. Pretty much it could be any time between now and May, or something like that. There are dates on the UCAS website if you want to check.

    It really depends. I sent off my application in early October, got my first reply within 2 weeks and I'm still waiting for 2 now.

    I sent mine off in the middle of October, heard from one early November, another late December and still waiting from the others.

    It says that they should all reply by the 31 March

    Depends on the University and the course

    For me it was 6 days for Leeds, 7 for Manchester and over a month for Newcastle

    I'm guessing you mean Leeds university not Leeds met?

    I'm planning to insure Leeds met as its closest to home for me

    It depends on where you've applied, some universities are notorious for taking a long time.

    I had to wait 6 days for my first two, still waiting on the other three but its only been two weeks. It shouldnt be more than another three weeks, now that the deadline has passed, but it could well be anotehr few months.
