    In my personal experience for Mech Eng, Liverpool gave me an offer in 2 days but Nottingham took until late December and I submitted in late September

    How soon did you get responses when u had sent yours off?
    Warwick was ~2 weeks, then a month for Notts, then three months for UCL, Oxford was a rej post test in December, then had to go to an applicant day thing in April for Bristol before getting the offer.

    Call me crazy, but I sent in my UCAS on September 7th! I applied to Cambridge, Durham, UCL and Exeter to read English and have received acknowledgement emails from all of them except UCL.

    Btw I'm a mature post-qualification applicant.

    Good start, you think its too early to send them though? unless your applying or medicine or oxbridge
    There is no 'too early' , to some extent it's a myth put about by schools/ colleges to give them the time and space to do the references etc for those who are applying for Medicine and /or Ox /Cam ...

    There is no benefit in getting applications in earlier than the equal consideration cut off date - even if some places do issue offers earlier ( if you want to be conspiratorial you might even think that just before the equal consideration cut off is optimal as a HEI / dept that is 'behind' on it;s offers might be more generous in either grades or giving the offer - until you get an offer ' rejection you are still in the pool for that application.

    Oh wow that is really early. Good luck with your application and I hope you get your first choice


    I'm sending mine off in a week's time. Just need to tie off some loose ends and take out £23!
