    Anyone heard back yet? I sent my application off before the Oxbridge deadline (like 13th October) and I still haven't heard a peep from UCL - really want to know

    I've heard back from Royal Holloway, UEA and I have an interview for Queen Mary soon...Makes me think I should have heard something from UCL?

    I've applied for a History BA by the way - I know it's popular, but still; anyone got any idea how long I should wait before I should ring admissions to ask what the hell? It's been nearly 2 months now - I'm starting to think any letter I may have got may have been lost in the post xD

    Cheers

    Same for me. Got an interview letter today, after sending my UCAS on October 8th. This was the only thing I've heard off them. Any idea how many applicants get rejected without interview? The letter said there are 20 applicants for every place - is that narrowed considerably?

    Also Bluejoe, I'm applying to exactly the same unis as you, for the same courses (although War Studies and History at Kings). Which Oxford college did you apply for?

    I think they remove quite a few applicants before interview, as it says on their website only candidates being "actively considered" get an interviewed.
