    Anybody know how quick Cambridge, Bristol, UCL, Warwick and Nottingham are for law offers? Any insight would be much appreciated x
    Depends on how fast they process LNAT scores.

    It's always £24 if you apply for two or more courses, regardless of what they are. It's a bit less for just one course but I'm not sure how much.
    £11 for one

    I have an offer from Birmingham and Queen Mary for psychology, just waiting for Southampton and UCL right now. Got rejected by Kings college because my grades "do not meet the requirements for the course" even though I achieved A*AB at A level this year and I'm predicted an A in psychology A-level (applying in my gap year right now.)

    Is anyone else applying for psychology at any of these unis too?

    I wonder what percentage of Oxbridge applications are sent the day before the deadline like I'm doing... Maybe I'm a minority, but I suspect it's quite a few!

    I've sent off my UCAS application on Tuesday, all I got in return was an email from UCAS saying my said application has been sent to my chosen universities and that they will get back to me.

    Still no confirmation reply from any of my choices via email that they've actually received it, should I be worried? kinda stressing out considering most people ITT have received an email within 24 hours.
