    Have an offer from Loughborough and got rejected from York both within a week of sending off the UCAS. Also weirdly enough got a postcard in the post from southampton saying thanks for applying??? Cant complain though at least they are being through.
    I got a postcard from Swansea haha!

    I'm sorry you didn't get an offer from York, but well done on receiving one from Loughborough!

    Aww thank you! I knew it would be risky applying to York (applied for physics) and funny enough the rejection notification was round about the same time I happened to be on the York campus, I was visiting a friend.

    For me so far,
    Kings College - Computer Science : Conditional offer, 3 weeks from when I sent off my application
    Queen Mary - Computer Science : Conditional offer, 4 weeks
    UCL - EEE with Computer Science : Conditional offer, 4 weeks

    Now I'm just waiting on,
    UCL - Computer Science
    Imperial College - Computing

    I have a feeling UCL and Imperial Comp Sci is gonna take a while..


    Overall the Computer Science departments across the UK have been quicker than usual this year, Warwick especially

    Good luck to all

    If I don't get into Oxford then I'll either go for Sheffield or Edinburgh (if Edinburgh gives me an offer this year that is). I do like the Sheffield course though. And your German was never awful haha! I remember being really suprised at how good you spoke it during interviews last year :P I've probably forgotten all mine now anyway lol.
    I can honestly say Sheffield is amazing in terms of city and course!

    The fastest one for me was Kent - they gave me an offer the day after I applied. Then for Oxford Brookes and Manchester I got offers 2 days after applying.
    I got an acknowledgement from Bristol, but no contact whatsoever from SOAS yet, hmmm

    edit: I sent my UCAS off on the 27th
    Don't worry! I sent mine off on the 14th and it took SOAS like 2 weeks to send me an acknowledgement email.

    Just got an offer from Bristol - AYYOoo :dancing2:
    They got back to me relatively fast- I think about a week after my application's been sent.
    Is it weird though that it appeared on Track but I haven't had THE email from Bristol?



    Congratulations
    Which course did you apply for?

    Yeah I received my email from Southampton a day after it appeared on track

    Hahahahah +1

    It annoys me so much. My predicted grades are 7 grades + another subject above the entry requirement for Manchester, yet they're still asking me to interview... -_- Takes me about 6 hours to get there, and it's at 11 in the morning... Just give me an offer or reject me lmao
