    Yes it will and no, it won't, depending on what you have applied for. Did you check if the courses were still accepting new applications before you put your application in? Many will be, but the most competitive will have closed their doors on Jan 15th. It all depends, is the short answer, on what you have applied for.

    Thanks yeah i guess it all just depends upon popularity of the course! Well i rung up the uni and asked about the course i want to do and whether they are still accepting applicants or if its too late to reply. The indivdual i had spoke to said yeah i believe they are still accepting applicants however he didnt sound certain. I dont think the course is too popular. Its special educational needs and disabilty studies, so i imagine it is not a super popular course.

    However im still waiting for it to be sent off, my college have got the application but my tutor still needs to write my reference. So im hoping she writes it soon so it can get sent off !
