    Sent my UCAS on Tuesday, got acknowledgment emails from all my unis the day after I sent my application! No offers yet but UCL asked for further info which means they are looking at my application haha (pretty scary). I've heard Bristol answers quite quickly to applications so would be delighted to hear back next week from them.

    Oh yes and my unis choices are for Natural Sciences at Cambridge, and then Physics and Maths at UCL, Exeter, Birmingham and Bristol

    I've finished my UCAS but my references aren't done yet....
    I just want to receive one offer so I don't panic about having screwed up! :P

    I'm applying for French and Italian ab initio at Leeds, Manchester, Cambridge, Liverpool and Lancaster. Leeds will probably end up being my first choice.
