    When I register do I have to wait for them to send me username and password or do I register with the username they gave me when I applied so that I can log in and check the status of my application?

    They really aren't are they

    I 'think' you'll get some follow-up with regard to accommodation, and you should get a welcome pack (though of course it'll be really late)
    I got a follow up... but was not very useful :l .... they only gave me my username....no password.... so now I'm stuck!!1

    Do I have to got to the forgot my password link and create a new one???

    You use your BUCS username and password. You should have got that with your acknowledgement.

    University of Bath Application Tracker (from ages ago, around the time you applied through UCAS).

    Comes in this form:
    Dear *name*,

    YOUR APPLICATION @ THE UNIVERSITY OF BATH

    In order to complete and track your application to the University of Bath
    you will need to regularly access the Application Tracker at
    http://www.bath.ac.uk/applicant throughout your application.

    To access the Application Tracker you will need to use your BUCS (Bath
    University Computing Services) username and password:

    Username: initials plus some numbers
    Password: number and letter combination

    Possibly.

    I vaguely recall hearing 'two days' - whether that includes Sundays or not, I'm not sure. They were late with registration so there's nothing to say they won't be late in opening the applications as well. It takes around an hour between registration and them sending the next email.

    Between Poole and Bournemouth. I love how, as soon as someone mentions 'Dorset' people immediately expect a massive country accent, yet actually I'm pretty RP when I talk Where are you from? What are you firming?

    I guess I could go pirate too - yarrrrrr

    Oh god, another county with an assumed farmer accent

    Ah awesome It took me ages to make my mind up degree-wise because I like physics as well - who knows, by the time I leave, I might have a joint-honours degree

    I firmed on thursday evening.... I luckily got an e-mail from them on Sat!!!

    I guess you'll just have to wait it out!!! It seems that everybody has a prob with the poor communication by Bath with its prospective students..... Disappointing after all the awards they achieved this past year!!!
