    is it a bad sign if you are still waiting for an offer over a month after sending it off? especially when i know some people who are receiving offers the same university (and partly the same course) even though they sent their application off later.

    I'm not sure if all unis work in the same way but I found out las year when I was applying etc that ey have different piles...ones who are in right away (mainly because of grades) ones who don't impress and will be sent a no....and another pile who are maybes....and they will go back to the maybes at e end once they know how many offers have been sent out first...this doesn't mean to say you won't get an offer as you haven't been rejected yet so good luck you'll hear soon...a couple of my unis took approx..8weeks...last year...one a no but I got into my favourite course so all else didn't fail...don't give up hope...determination and commitment wins..that's what I was told by a senior lecturer...

    Yep - I have either received acknowledgements or offers off my other choices. Don't know why they are being so slow.

    Sent my application away on the 23rd November and I haven't received any offers yet for psychology. It's a bit frustrating when there is people with 5 unconditionals at my school and I have nothing haha

    Haha I feel the same! Only had 1 offer thus far and it's conditional. Hard to see others making their firm/insurance

    It's been already three weeks since my reference teacher sent my application out... I got an offer for Genetics from Aberdeen last week, but, other than that, it has been dead silent. A friend of mine has already 4/5 offers. I'm so jealous. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I only applied to Scottish unis (Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, St. Andrews) plus am a non-UK EU student?

    Do they send out offers and rejections at the same time? I'm so scared that on May 5th I'll just receive four automatic rejections... My predicted grades are rather ok (41/45 IB points), but could they reject me for other reasons (country of domicile, PS)?

    I applied almost a month ago and have only heard from Greenwich so far.
    Still got Essex, Kent, Bradford and Brunel to go.
    Greenwich were pretty quick, sent an offer two days after.

    I'm in the same situation! I'm also a non-UK EU student, I applied back in November to 5 Scottisch unis and I haven't heard anything since then.

    Congrats! I hope you get the fee status sorted out to your advantage, since international fees are way high ^^'
