Anyone feeling slightly optimistic that as tomorrow is a work day there might be a few more offers given out? I just want one to keep me going... One tiny little conditional *cough*Cambridgepreferably*cough * so that I know my application wasn't a complete dud!
*I know Cambridge won't give conditionals without interview..

Yeah my A-levels are BBC which I don't think is bad at all, I could get into a lot of universities with those grades, but I've got my sights set a little higher so I'm expecting some conditional offers asking me to pass my diploma. I'll probably firm them and then I'm expecting at least one unconditional offer which I will make my insurance. Of course this is all hypothetical atm
they're not bad at all! seems like you have it all sorted though which is good, have you found the whole UCAS thing easier second time round? Or about the same? :L

I'm so stressed! My application's been 'awaiting approval' for 5 days. I just logged back it to check it gain, and now it's back to 'reference is in progress'. I SENT IT TWO WEEKS AGO. -_-
tell your school to send it off for God's sake!!! D: if I were you I'd spam my referee's email
Remember that your schools will have been busy dealing with the early deadline applicants for the last few weeks. These people HAD to get their applications done whereas you guys have got another three months.
If it were the other way around I highly doubt you'd be impressed as an Oxbridge/medicine candidate if your application ended up being late or your teacher had less time to help you because they were prioritising people who still had months to apply. Remember, teachers have so much other stuff going on in their professional and personal lives. Your UCAS application is one tiny part of all of the responsibilities they have and when it comes down to it, whether your application goes now or in a few weeks doesn't make any difference. If your PS is good then it will always be good. Even when it does get sent all that will happen then is that you'll spend the next 7 months refreshing track for 5 words to change. Its a long long process - if you stress yourself out now before you've even begun you will not survive in a healthy way until next August.
I know its difficult and feels like its the end of the world. But it isn't - good luck
