    You got an offer from 3 A's? Or you mean Aston? lol

    Anyway, her reason she got rejected is that she did not get predicted AA in 2 sciences. So as long as you get AA in 2 science and decent personal statement etc. You should get an offer..

    Yeah true, it's still weird for them to reject people like that, which they shouldn't..

    Oh well, I'm afraid that's how it is..
    Haha 3 A's at aston yeah. Oh yeah I know but I'm the exact same boat. So I'll get rejected. But I haven't heard anything as of yet.

    I've had an acknowledgement from them too, they basically send a letter/email (depends if you gave them your email) basically saying, 'Hi, we got your application and we're looking at it now'.

    Approximately the 27th of October? I was able to log into track from the 20th and got the email roughly a week later.

    Give it a few more weeks. If nothing's come by the end of the month I'd email the admissions department and ask if they recieved your application.

    Yeah. They're bound to be inundated anyway, with all the people applying. Or maybe they sent it to the wrong email. Either way, yeah, leave until the end of the month at least. Don't sound whiney!

    I recieved an offer from Anglia on the same day.
    Then again, I reckon I must've been one of the first to send it off, so eh...

    Recieved an acknowledgement from Manchester a week after I sent it; waiting on news about interviews or if I'm even getting one.

    Haven't heard from Glasgow or ulster (which is Coleraine for those of you who insist on calling it by the campus name).


    And in case you're wondering why I only listed four, my back-up is Liverpool for Orthoptics, which I've also recieved an offer for.

    Thanks very much got an acknowledgement from aston manchester and cardiff within a day but nothing else so far. It is so so nerveracking. Constantly refreshing my mail! I've been predicted 3A*s and have 4As at as level so hoping my personal statement doesn't jeoprodise me!! Also do you know if cardiff and manchester ALWAYS do interviews?

    I don't know about Cardiff, because tbh I don't care about there since I'm not applying, but I've been led to believe than Manch always do interviews.

    Cardiff rarely do, very few people in my year did - I didn't. Manchester always interview.
