    In my 6th form, a girl sent hers off and got an offer the very next day :eek:
    And then, you have people who sent theres in october and still havent gotten a reply.

    When did you get your first offer, and in general, whats the sort of average time you have to wait between sending off the ucas and receiving your first offer(or rejection if thats the case)?

    I sent mine off thurs morning, and got an acknowledgement from hertfordshire today.
    I sent mine off at the beginning of October still haven't heard a peep.

    The UCAS website and all its features will be still be active during christmas so I don't see why not, unless the university admissions departments themselves are closed.
    I got an offer today, but the christmas period defined by UCAS is from 25th December until around 2nd January.
