    UCL, Geophysics.
    Thanks! I'm applying to UCL for Medical Physics, any idea why your offer was so quick? Is this common for UCL?

    I'd have thought that admissions processes would be department-specific so I certainly wouldn't expect this for UCL as a whole. I don't think UCL's Earth Sciences department is particularly heavily oversubscribed (it's lovely though) and also I submitted it fairly early (start of October) so they wouldn't have been very busy with applications at that time.

    Oh okay, thanks again.

    Last year I got offers from all of my chosen universities (Exeter, Anglia Ruskin, Bangor, Lincoln and Leicester) within 3-4 weeks with one of them giving me an offer within 24 hours of me sending off my application (Lincoln), but I did send it the day before the deadline, so it may be different if it gets sent off earlier.

    I'm reapplying again this year for BSc Zoology at Sussex, Reading, Derby, Royal Holloway and Leicester, I'll be sending my application in the next week or so after I hear back from admissions since I already have my grades, we'll see if I get fast offers or not this time haha.
