    History is one of the most competitive courses, so will probably take longer than a lot of others.

    If you are clearly better than their standard offer Manchester just give you an offer now..most people at my school who applied there have got offers.
    The fact that there are only 20 places is irrelevant-the real competition for places starts in a few months time.

    UNCONDITIONAL OFFER MANCHESTER HISTORY

    yayayay!!
    For those asking about History, it was one of the first offers mentioned in this thread! To the person who got it grr, I am very jealous! :p:

    Engineering at Keble! Eeek, I'm really not enjoying all this ucas business
    Where else have you applied? Good luck to you too btw! x
    I am applying to King's College London, St Andrew's, Edinburgh and Newcastle (in that order of preference, but shh don't tell Newcastle! I like them all). Where else did you apply to, and why Keble? I chose Balliol 'cos I'm a sucker for pretty buildings and it is centrally located between 3 humungous bookshops

    Anyway, not long until tomorrow and this thread is taken over once more with news of offers. Ahh!!!

    And yes, this UCAS business is horrible. So many hoops to jump through... and all so that we can end up with £21,000 of debt at the end of it. :rolleyes:

    Please, almighty UCAS gods, have mercy on my poor tormented soul. After applying on 7/10 I've not received any offers or *even* acknowledgements from my choices:

    How dare they do this to me...
    Um...you're overreacting more than a little bit. A lot of Uni's don't acknowledge, especially not 6 days after you apply...:rolleyes: And offers?!, the Oxford deadline hasn't even passed yet, let alone the normal deadline, why would you expect an offer....get a grip

    Edinburgh, Notts., RHUL, Exeter, Heythrop

    I have promised that I shall smite the university who last deigns to contact me by rejecting their offer (hopefully I won't simply be accepting their rejection). How dare they do this to me...

    I feel the same! The reference is the only thing missing in my application, and I need to send it asap for it to arrive on time by airmail.
