    Hi!

    I had my interview to study Chemistry on the 28th of February, I received a letter about three days later stating that they are recommending I be made an offer from the head of the mathematical and physical sciences department (I was so excited you wouldn't believe! )

    Anyway's it's been 16 days since my interview but my offer still has not appeared on UCAS I was wondering how long did it take anyone else for their UCAS to be updated from the time of interview? Also if anyone was at the same interview day as me (there was around 40 people) have any of you had your UCAS updated yet?

    Thanks!

    I was there on the same day as you and I haven't heard anything. Not even a letter. So, I assume I won't be getting an offer.

    I'm a bit annoyed that I haven't heard anything because I'm sure Dewi said that we would know by the 2nd of March. (?)

    Edit; no, I was there on the 21st.

    Well they said they will inform all of us in writing if we was going to be made an offer or not. It may be worth you emailing Dr Lewis and asking if you will be made an offer or not.

    Has anyone else actually received an offer to study Chemistry who was at the same interview day as me?

    Did the letter state the offer they would be making you and such? Perhaps you should ring them up and just follow-up on what's happening. Not harm in trying really

    No, it simply said that they were impressed with my interview so the head of admissions has written to the head of the mathematical and physical sciences department recommending I be made an offer. It then says the the head of that department will process formal offer letters and communicate the offer with UCAS, which will happen in due course :/

    So I'm guessing I do have a place (although still only unofficially at the moment) but I just want it on UCAS to know the conditions of my offer, and to have that peace of mind that I do have a place. At the moment I just feel like they could change their minds any time they want about making me an offer

    Ohh, I see.. I doubt they would change their minds like that really - I mean it's still a some-what official letter that you got. Just have to play the waiting game

    I'm in the same situation, had my interview for the ESPS dual degree on 29 February, got your same email ("recommendation for an offer") three days ago, but my UCAS Track hasn't been updated yet. I guess we'll just have to wait, but that's definitely an offer

    I had an interview for Chemistry with a modern language, but still no news yet, the man told me that I'd found out before the end of March, so fingers crossed!

    No I didn't get one either and hopefully that doesn't mean that we've definitely been rejected, like I thought before. Although we're probably not their first choice since some people in this thread got letters telling them they've got an offer a few days after they went.

    What day were you there btw? And what modern language will you do if you end up going?

    Yeah that's that I though :/
    I couldn't go to my interview, so they said it was fine to do it by phone because my interview date was the last one I think haha and it was around the 8th march I think? and i'd be doing spanish
    Are you doing pure chemistry or with a language/year abroad etc?

    Did Dewi try and move your interview to the week earlier as well?? I'm going for Chemistry with a European Language (German). I'm not expecting an offer tbqh, my interview with the woman was shocking. Just couldnt think of the 3D structure of the molecule she drew. Not really helped by the fact I'd had to be up a 5am, and the first thing she said to me was 'You better not have a really thick northern accent, because I won't be able to understand you.'
