    News from Warwick,

    I've sent an e-mail to Warwick admission office and asked when are we going to receive acknowledgments and offers. They said that they're currently dealing with technical issues so they're intending to send to all applicants acknowledgments (next week) and some offers.

    Dear teachers,

    Please could you reply to my emails they day I send them? I gave 2 weeks leeway to sort out school stuff like references and predictions, it has taken a week to even get someone to write me a reference and I haven't been assured my predictions are on the system. Now I have one week and I'm freaking out.

    Would really appreciate your reply as currently I'm on track to miss the early entry deadline at the speed you're taking.

    love j xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Jfc my chem/bio teacher keeps saying "oh damn haha sorry I forgot haha lol" when I remind her about doing my reference like NAAAH FAM THIS AINT NO LAUGHING SCENARIO THIS IS MY FUTURE YA PIGEON

    Northampton were the quickest to reply to me 1 month from when I submitted my application, Huddersfield 4 months and Birmingham Met never
    So I declined them.
    What do you mean Birmingham Met never?

    How come you're not sure about Warwick anymore? I was considering applying there but the accommodation didn't really look good.

    No acknowledgement, no offer from Warwick. This is unusual comparing to last year.

    Update 2: I've now got an email from UCL too, similar to the one Exeter sent me yesterday. I don't know what this means, but both Exeter and UCL seem to be quicker than I thought they would be! (It's not an offer/rejection yet - they did need "more information", but that's quite understandable considering my unique situation. And the fact that they've sent me these emails already shows that... )

    I phoned them yesterday explaining how I was about to apply to economics, politics and international studies but since I was also applying to joint honors at all my other unis and some of them was joint history/economics politics/economics my ps also had some history in it. The guy said that probably would automatically make my application weaker - LSE and Oxford said this wouldn't be the case! I also didn't mention much international relations in my ps apart from through model un lol. So Idk I don't really want to apply. I could apply there for history and politics but I'm not sure if I would still have the same issue😩 As I'd have Econ in my ps too😔 I also visited Warick Tuesday and after visiting Oxford idk it was a let down I guess hahaha lots of the accommodation is quite a while away from the campus and the campus itself is just really in a big field no where near Warwick, closer to Coventry but still miles away :/

    Ah yes thanks, but I was on about the "never", apparently they never replied to his application but I thought all unis had to reply by a certain date.

    What degree/joint degree do you really want to do? Just go with one and have do, also remember you could phone the uni on results day if the course is in clearing/adjustment and ask to transfer to a slightly different course. For example, if you choose econ and politics but decide you want to do econ and history - you could still do econ and history providing there are spaces left.

    I'd advise something along the lines of this...
    Econ: just do econ
    Econ and Politics: Econ and/with Politics/IR
    Econ and History: Econ and/with History/Econ History

    What I mean above is for example - if you really want to study economics and history, choose degrees called 'Econ with History', 'Econ and History' or 'Econ with economic history'.
