    I sent off my UCAS last Friday and got my first offer from Surrey (good uni, I think it's quite underrated) last night for AAA including maths and physics, I've also applied at Oxford, Durham, Warwick and Bath, I've already seen a couple of people have physics offers from Warwick which is slightly worrying, has anyone else got offers from any of these places?

    I sent my UCAS last friday as well, and I got an an offer from Warwick this Wednesday. I'm also applying for Oxford, Durham, UCL and Imperial. Durham is really slow so I don't expect to get an offer before next year... Don't worry for warwick, if your grades are strong, they will give you offer surely. Basically I got a B in my AS and I can still get an offer. My friends got offers from Bath but they were math and chemical engineering, so I suppose that Bath is slower for physics.

    Cheers man! Are you dead set on Oxford? For me it's a bit of a long shot and I think I'd rather go to Durham for theoretical physics, plus I reckon the PAT will be a ballache.

    hahaha I just want to have a try!! I didn't expect myself to get in... PAT is not as bad as I thought actually but well...It's quite hard. I really want to go to Imperial and that's my first choice. But Imperial asked my UMS last week and my UMS is terrible...And I'm so worried now.

    Hi all,

    I'm currently a third year Physics student on the MPhys course at Oxford. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask but bear in mind that my course is far from representative.

    Omg you have your interview!!!! Probably because my AS grades are not strong so that they asked for my UMS...I'm sure when they look at my UMS they'll decide to reject me...

    Hi there, we seem to be in pretty similar places. I'm applying to the same universities except for Warwick (Exeter for me). Would you let me know when you get an offer from Bath, because I'm hoping for one too . Which Oxford college did you apply to?

    Got 6 A's at AS- sent it off on 5th but other people at my school have the same grades and haven't got an email from durham yet so I wouldn't worry

    They ask every year. My form took forever to come through but I still got an offer so I don't think there's any correlation between the time taken and getting an offer.
