    My school doesn't send our applications till December which worries me as there are only about 20 places on the course
    Universities do not 'run out of offers'. They rank applications as they come in and very gradually make offers so that all applicants are considered equally. If you apply before the Jan deadline you really do have just as much chance of an offer as someone applying in October - promise.

    ...
    I did AS in Computing, ICT ,Pure Mathematics and Further Mathematics but I didn't do very well on these subjects so I ended up with EEEU respectively. My college told me that A Levels were not for me and offered me BTEC National Extended Diploma in IT because they knew that I really enjoyed programming and now I am predicted to get D*D*D* in BTEC National Extended Diploma in IT. I have an A in GCSE Maths.

    What do you think whether or not I would get an offer for BSc Computer Science and is it worth applying to Bristol. I know that i will get very good reference and have a very good personal statement (said to me by my tutors). They say on their website D*DD + Test for BTEC applicants

    Thanks

    If you meet the admissions requirements then apply. It might sound a bit obvious but there is no other way of finding out if you will get an offer or not.

    We aim to make a decision within five weeks of receiving an application. However, we receive a high volume of applications which means that sometimes it can take slightly longer to make a decision, and we may place your application on hold until later in the cycle. If this is the case we will email you to let you know.

    This means precisely what it says - AIMS. That does not mean WILL.

    And it goes on to say that your application could be put on hold beyond this. That is what happens to the vast majority of applications. Few people will get a decision within 5 weeks - which by the way, can also be No, so be careful what you wish for.

    Are you sure that just isn't the deadline?? I think if you finished your application before then they'd probably send it off before December

    I wouldn't worry. I know it's hard; I applied in October last year, and didn't get my offer until March. I saw offers pouring in for people on here, and it was hard to not get disheartened. But like returnmigrant has said; they won't run out of offers. Applying any later than someone else, as long as it's before the deadline of course, gives you just as much chance as anyone else. (Don't forget, unis tend to offer more places than they intend to fill, as they're aware they won't be first choice for many who apply)
