    Hey guys, I am applying to Oxford, Imperial, Birmingham, King's College London, and Nottingham for Computer Science and its derivatives.

    Just over an hour ago I received an acknowledgement email from Nottingham, so there go the myths about weekends! I just want the wait to be over; the tension is killing me.

    So many econs lool, you think there is just more of us or are we more likely to post on student room? Maybe a mixture of both. I'm applying your first three too, what cambridge college?
    It feels like I'm the only non economist/politician on here!

    Caius, wbu? Well Economics is the most competitive degree so you'd expect a lot, but there still seems like a lot more applicants on here than for other subjects. Idk why.
    Nice, I'm applying Emmanuel. The competition for economics really does kill me

    Ahhh hey guys! Congrats to everyone getting offers, it's incredible that you've heard back so soon, you must all be fab! I've finalised my application but it hasn't been sent off by the school yet.

    Course: Linguistics
    Grades: 10A*s at GCSE, 4As at AS (93% average), 3A* predicted
    Universities: Cambridge (Clare College) eek, Edinburgh, York, UCL, Newcastle

    I adore the Cambridge college that I'm applying to but it gets so many applicants and gives so few offers so I'm not holding out hopes of getting in. I love Edinburgh and would DIE if I got in! York is so pretty and I definitely wouldn't mind going there, although the course isn't as exciting as Camb and Edinburgh. I'm a bit nervous about applying to London unis but UCL is so good for my course! And Newcastle... well, my friend's applying there so I thought I might as well have it as my fifth choice!
    Woah, those are some awesome choices! Edinburgh and Cambridge have the best linguistics departments and courses in the country. Good luck!

    I am applying Neuroscience in UCL, Queen Mary, Natural Science in Cambridge and York and biochemistry in Imperial.
    Got 5 acknowledgement letters and one offer from York yesterday!
    I have been invited to an interview in Shanghai by Cambridge on 27th October ( I am an international student).
    It seems that everything goes great.

    Emails are sent by an automatic system. This does not mean any staff are making decisions at weekends - because trust me they wont be.

    Cambridge (lololol) and Lancaster.
    Ah I picked Oxford over Cambridge, as I liked the vibe of the city more. I would absolutely love to be given an offer, but with my grades I think it's a bit of a long shot. Still, I'm going to try as hard as I can!

    If only school was organised to get my reference together so I could have applied last Wednesday...

    Just need some motivation because right now I'm literally working towards nothing, so there is no incentive to work.

    Remember this is only a small number of people who've sent in thier forms in already compaired to what it will be in total. The fact you've got yourself to the point where it's the teachers your waiting for shows your motivated, loads of people are still wrtiting their pr still and pondering what to apply for.

    I applied to Imperial ,Edinburgh, Oxford, Warwick and UCL (to study biological science). I have already sent my application. I was ecstatic today. I thought that I might receive an offer from Warwick but apparently this year they'll start sending their offers later compared to the last 2 years. I have that feeling that I might not receive any offers till January. Warwick would boost my confidence.
    I have not even received a confirmation from any UNI expect Edinburgh,
    Also a biosci applicant, as of now I only have imperial & ucl as choices. What made you take the others? I was thinking of having the same combo as you, not so sure as i also like bath, st andrews, birmingham

    Same here. Is it that hard to write the references for the 10/12 or so people who are doing early entry over 3 weeks? ffs

    I chose Oxford because i like their facilities/tutoring system and it is my dream
    I chose UCL because I can get a scholarship and I enjoy the course
    I chose Imperial because the course (Biochem with Research abroad) seemed appealing to me
    I chose Edinburgh since I love the University and Scotland
    I chose Warwick since I wanted to receive an offer before December

    Is it not that all your teachers write a reference and then whoever the teacher was who officially is doing it, as in who you have on the ucas form, has to collate all the other references and mix them all together?? I thought that was universal but maybe it's just my school
