    I am just so nervous seeing you guys say a lot of offers for PPE at UCL have been given out and my appication status hasn't been updated for 4months. I got my CIE Alevel result last month and it is 4A*s. Hope it helps attain an offer at UCL.
    At no point have we said loads of offers have been given out! That's half the reason we're worrying!

    I've only seen maybe 3 offers and 1 rejection so far!

    I saw people said many offers were given to those who have already got into Oxford.....
    If UCL really has only given out a few offers so far, that makes me more relaxed.
    You applied for PPE in UCL as well?

    Oh no, what we were saying is that UCL are likely to give offers to people who got in to Oxford, given their presumed intellectual prowess.

    Yeah I am!

    I think it's possible that they might be giving out offers only to certain people first and then a few next if some in those first/earlier groups decline the offers and so on... and when they already have enough people who accept their offers then they will start rejecting everybody else who haven't heard back from them at once.

    Anyway it's just my guessing and who on earth knows what they are thinking?

    Whether an offer or rejection, I just wanna know it quickly (though I understand that this does take time and they legitimately have until the end of March (or May for the worst case) to consider our applications. We'll just need to keep being patient.

    Hey I saw your reply to someone on the previous page. So you have called the office and they said they had 700 applicants?? Oh my god! How competitive it is!
    And I saw people being emailed for stream choice or their status have been updated.
    It just make me feel more nervous.
    You have only seen 3 offers so far? I wonder there may be a lot more guys who got offers but just didn't post the news here.

    There are probably a few more offers given out than we all know about They give out about 3 offers per place though so there are over 100 offers available!

    Funny you should ask that... I was at LSE a few days ago for an MUN conference and although the university is great, I didn't really feel as if it suited me. This may be me kidding myself as an LSE reject but i now feel that even if I had got an offer I would rather go to UCL. The reputation of the two institutions is relatively identical and both (from as far as I can tell) have kinda similar courses. However it's different for everyone so I guess the answer can only be that it's down to you!

    Why don't you feel that lse suited you, if you don't mind me asking? I'm just curious because it's known to be very intense and perhaps less social.
