    Not all degrees are 3 years-many bachelors degrees are 4 years, including languages and some STEM courses (important years in industries and years abroad)
    Or 5 years for a MEng/MSci/etc with year abroad/industry.

    And/or add a year for a Foundation to start.

    Lots of options...

    I wouldn't be too worried yet. I got a confirmation on the 15th from Loughborough and haven't heard yet. I was cruelly teased earlier by UCAS as I got an 'update' email, but it was just that the campus code had changed

I'm annoying my teachers about improving my reference PLUS I thought I finished my PS but the doctors from my work experience emailed saying they have stuff to suggest WITHOUT SENDING THE SUGGESTIONS so now I'm freaking out in case I can't send it off by mid next week like my form tutor wants me too AFAIUFHAEHEGHIGHSIUGHSGNSOGSOETE OTNE this is a hard time

    I think mine is ready to send off (probably need to go through my references with my referee) but I won't do so until Monday

    I'm visiting one of my choices (QMUL) on Saturday, so I don't want to send it off then realise I don't like it or something, and if I really like London, I may change Newcastle to Kings, but probably not :lol:

    I've applied for Law at Oxford and Durham. My other 3 choices will be going on at a more leisurely pace (I have until January 15th), but the universities will be Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds - I just need to decide if I'm doing straight law, law with a year abroad or law with french law for the latter two of these.
