    In 2015, i applied to surrey, nottingham and canterbury christchurch to study adult nursing, after interviews nottingham took 2 weeks to reject me but canterbury took 4 weeks to make me a conditional offer. However surrey took just 2 days! (Which i accepted) from what ive heard from other ppl on my course, most ppl heard back within a week

    If you are a non-Scots applicant applying to a Scottish Uni, just be aware that they tend to process/offer to Scottish applicants first. This may be why you are not getting fast responses - they are just holding your application until after the UCAS deadline before they make a decision.

    Ah, that makes sense - I've noticed everyone seems to being waiting on Scottish universities.

    Come on, Edinburgh!

    Has anybody applied to Cardiff, Kent, Leicester, Swansea or Sheffield (for English Lit)? I applied during christmas holidays and haven't heard back from any of them yet
    I applied to Kent for English & American Lit and Film (28 Dec) and also haven't heard back yet! Surrey is the only choice I've heard back from so far, though I only got my offer yesterday

    Because this is the last week before the UCAS deadline, all the Universities will get a tidal wave of applications. It will take them a while to climb out from under this heap, so it will naturally take longer to get any decisions out.

    Then you are probably a middle range scoring applicant and they are waiting until they have all applications in to see where you rank against others.
