    Has anyone had a Maths (or Maths department) offer from Manchester or Nottingham yet? I've had acknowledgement emails from both but I'm scared about not getting offers as they're my top 2.

    Based on this thread it seems that Warwick is being quite quick with responses/offers... I only sent my application off today but it gives me hope that they'll get around to my application over half term or soon after!

    Hopefully they'll be just as quick with interviews

    Thanks,
    I know you're sweet for Manchester if you have an interview, but I have no idea how to prepare for it. My school runs courses for stuff requiring interviews, though I haven't a clue how to prepare for a Geology one.
    I'm going to try and win a bursary though.
    What course are you doing at Manchester?

    Hey, I'm an international student, so bit new to all of this. Just wondering if these offers are conditional or unconditional? I'm assuming it's the former for the most of you, but has anyone got a confirmed seat?

    From what I can tell these are all conditional. Very few get unconditional.

    I applied for physics with astrophysics, I wouldn't worry about the interview, it's really informal and relaxed. They don't expect you to know anything for a course you haven't learnt at A level, so it shouldn't be too hard

    No one I saw was wearing a suit, most people were smart casual, so like jeans and a shirt

    Just to answer some questions that have come up so far:
    • the fact that you haven't heard from a uni yet when others have for the same course doesn't mean you are going to be rejected
    • uni departments vary a lot in how fast they process applications and send out offers, and you can't read anything into this
    • some unis don't send acknowledgements, and some do - and some departments within a uni don't, where others do; if your Track shows that your application has been sent, the uni has it, so don't worry
    • LSE does have a habit of posting its decisions on the same day each week, but this is LSE's way of doing things, not necessarily what other unis do
    • Track updates as unis send through decisions (all done electronically) and this can happen at odd times of day and/or at weekends - if Track is down for some reason, decisions will still get through and will be there for you to see when it comes back up again
    • half term is irrelevant to unis - however, admissions tutors generally don't deal with applications over the Christmas period and it also tends to go a bit quiet over Easter (which is very early in 2016)
    If you have a question about which unis have made offers, or for which courses, use the 'search thread' function, as that will bring up all posts that include your key words - eg "Durham" or "English".

    Thanks! I was a little worried that I'd have to wait a week and a half, haha
