    Gap year student here so I can remember which unis my friends got into and how quickly. The school made us apply by December at the lasted and I don't remember anyone getting offers after January/ very early February (especially in a friendship group of 30)
    I have to say I can think of at least 3 people off the top of my head who got offers from Warwick in less than 2 days. One got an acknowledgement of receipt of application around 12ish and an offer by the end of the school day! Bristol I remember were quite fast as well. Nottingham take about 6 weeks on average so not too bad

    Warwick sent out its first wave of Law offers last year about a week or two after the applications were received. I know a guy who got an offer for Chemistry before the Oxbridge deadline in early October.

    Bristol and UCL were also fairly quick for Law (mid November)

    The ones that took the longest were LSE and KCL (both late Jan/ early Feb)

    10 hours! Fook that seems a lot, I would've said I've spent about 5 hours of pure writing/editing/speaking with people about it

    I've seen worse to be honest. Last year some people were submitting in their first personal statement drafts for UCAS a day before the school deadline.
