    i'm still waiting, BM5 Gap yearer but wondering how old you have to be to be classed at "mature"
    BM5 mature student 25 yr old - still waiting too! I would have said 'mature' is anyone over 23, but as previous posts suggest it looks like anyone 21 or over who has achieved (already finished) A2 levels......... Who knows??? It is just a guessing game. Good luck to all still waiting.

    Good to have more people around today on the Soton thread - it's been too quiet the last few days.

    its strange thinking that we will all know by the end of the week after months of waiting, especially since its my last chance this year.

    I wish they would just hurry up so i could enjoy my week of work

    Just got some detailed feedback from them, Was a bit surprised that they said they treated my application as a mature non grad(wasnt expecting that coz im still under 21). So i would have beeen interviewed. U needed 28( out of; i dont know) and i got 26. Pretty close
    Do you mind me asking how did you request the feedback? Was it by email or post? I sent them an e-mail and got a reply similar to the standard letter sent to everyone and nothing specific about my application.
    Thanks

    Hey, I am sure there are a fair few of us out there!


    So do they post offers any time they feel like it or do they have a trend?? because they seem to like Fridays don't they?

    I seem to remember seeing some news of offers on Tuesdays and Thursdays too. I think it's really just when they've got through a pile of applications and I suppose that could be any day really. It is so hard waiting though isn't it

    Most unlikely going to be tomorrow since there is a grads offer day. Hopefully Wednesday :rolleyes:
