    That's not too bad, at least you were able to do it independently. I had no choice, sadly, and I had to wait for the members of staff to sort out everything for us.

    Yep, that college is too unorganised.

    I've pay/sent. But my school still has it and hasn't submitted it to UCAS, which is very VERY annoying...

    I submitted to my application a week ago but it wasn't until I had told my guidance teacher/referee that she actually sent it off! She'd written everything and got my predicted grades, she just didn't seem to know I'd submitted it...

    I've submitted mine to the college more than two weeks ago and they still haven't sent it off! I think they're planning to gather all the oxbridge/medicine applications and send them off one shot. No one's has been submitted yet.

    No problem, it will at least give you the chance to actually see why it hasn't been sent.
    I didn't actually go and find my guidance teacher in person [she's one of the ones who is never actually around when you need help] so emailing them could be another possibility as they are more likely to do it when they see it.

    My school sent my application off on the 1st and on the same day I got an offer from York, received an acknowledgement from Queen Mary the other day but nothing from my other unis.

    I have heard that Durham take ages to get back to you and I haven't taken my admissions test for Oxford yet so it's so be expected

    I wanted to hold on the submission until mid October initially, but after having lots of people trying to convince me NOT to submit it that early, I've decided to just send it off, without a care in the world. After sending it on 30 September, I received acknowledgements from King's and UCL, only left 3 to wait.

    I sent mine off on the 12th of September, simply because I'm into my 2nd gap year, so I'd been working on my personal statement for awhile, and didn't really have any reason to wait any longer than that.

    I only applied to Northumbria, and haven't heard anything yet -- not that I'm surprised though, it's early days, I'm not expecting to hear back at all for a good while.

    I sent mine yesterday! It's the weekend so I'm obviously not expecting anything yet, but hoping for some acknowledgements next week!

    I sent my application off on the 30th September (so Tuesday) to MMath at Warwick, Uni of Sheffield, Uni of Leicester and Uni of York and Bsc Maths at Coventry. I got an offer back from Warwick yesterday and I've had confirmation emails from Coventry, York and Leicester, I've not heard anything back from Sheffield yet though, but I'm optimistic, it's only early days

    Nope, because I'm old and full of shame.

    When I did apply I had received offers by now though

    I've heard of several people hearing from Warwick already. Fingers crossed I hear back soon too.
