    Yay finally heard something back!

    I am applying locally so do not think anyone will be going to the same thing, but I have yet MORE English and maths tests on the 18th December for the North Tyneside early years SCITT and if I pass those I go to interview

    Also got a letter through the post, no email or change on UCAS.

    Hi guys. For those who are getting interviews? When did you send in your applications and how many days did you wait?

    Also I was told by Ucas that the deadline is 5th Dec but I see people sending their application still? Has it been extended?

    I sent in my application in on the 5th and I still havent received an acknowledgement from any unis! Should I be worried?

    I sent mine in on 28th November, and was offered my first interview 6 days later. Warwick only acknowledge mine a couple of days ago though, so it will just depend on the uni how long you have to wait. I wouldn't worry yet.

    Well done to you too! Mine's on 7th January. No, track hasn't updated for me. But it did say in their email that it wouldn't show up on track for a bit.

    Hi

    I sent my application in on the 21st and I had a rejection on the 2nd of Dec and then got an email on the 5th and 6th of December offering me interviews. I didn't get mines acknowledged for about 3 or 4 days after i sent in my application.

    Hope you hear soon

    Woo interview at Edge Hill! But - huge problem! - they've scheduled it for the exact same time as one of my exams. I'm just counting down the hours until 9am when I can call up and hopefully reschedule! I wish I'd got my exam timetable BEFORE sending my application with the unavailable dates.

    The 5th marked the beginning of universities taking 'control' of their applications, i.e from that date, providers could choose to shut down their open system. Essentially the power leaves the UCAS system and becomes the providers'; that's how I see it. If they do close applications, they may reopen again, but it is unlikely that will happen. You can see already on this page someone who hasn't yet submitted due to waiting for a reference has been met with the 'applications shut' notice from a university. It's a ridiculous system. But no, is not an extension. I believe providers can remain open until they are out of places, I don't think there is any set date for closing.

    Definitely don't worry about the acknowledgements! Remember it has also been a weekend - in work days your choices have only had two days to look over your application so far, which is nothing. If you've sent it, they will have it, and apart from the skills tests there is nothing you need to do but step back and let go of it until you hear from them. ^^

    I still haven't got my second reference and now one of my choices now says no vacancies . I can't believe it, I'm seriously not happy. I did everything I could to get my application in early and now waiting for references scuppered one of my chances. This is a really unfair process
    Really, really sorry about this. It's absolutely freaking ridiculous that you didn't even have a chance. Surely they must realise what a rubbish system they've put in place now? It's like they think of it all as a game, when in fact it is our lives and futures. );
    I feel you are fully within your right to have a real guilt trip on that second reference now. Let them know that the choice closed because of their delay and as a result you now have just two opportunities remaining - and they MUST submit the reference or risk you losing those too. There is nothing wrong with a bit of a guilt trip, and it will hopefully encourage them to be quicker with the task if they are ever required to do it again.
    Again, sorry, but remember you have two choices left, it's not over. Focus on reaching out to those.
