    To those who already have offers, when did you get the emails from UCAS and then your offer emails from your unis?

    I got the email from UCAS about 10 minutes after an offer was put on track, and then I got the email from the uni the next day

    I got the offer at 4:00pm on UCAS but didn't get an update email until 20 minutes later. The university have yet to email me themselves though, I'm assuming they either won't send it until I reply or have sent a letter by post (because of the nature of the offer) but they didn't send an acknowledgement either.

    The exact times for my offers were 15:49 and 16:46, and then I got emails from the uni's early morning the next day so around 9/10am

    I spoke to a uni and they said they only do an upload/download for UCAS at 9:00am and 4:00pm, obviously this will vary slightly between unis but it seems as though there won't be much point checking during the middle of the day.

    So the 2017 UCAS cycle is now on us! At the moment a lot of us are in the middle of having a mental breakdown of how hard Year 13 is, writing our personal statements, pestering/bribing our teachers for our predicted grades and some of us are just weeks away from sending our applications off!


    ^Current mood



    Which universities do you know of that are making offers the quickest this year (for your course and/or in general)?



    Opening UCAS and seeing you got an offer like ^

    Or do you know of any universities that are really taking their time with their offers and causing a mini panic ?



    What life feels like when you have all your offers apart from that one uni you really want to go to ^

    List of unis giving offers down below!

    So after scouring the pages and missing out on the US Presidential debate (cheers to the idiots who told me to do this ) Here are the unis that have been giving out offers so far as of 10/10/2016

    -Newcastle
    -Bath
    -Bristol
    -Southampton
    -Liverpool
    -UCLAN
    -Greenwich
    -Nottingham
    -York
    -Swansea
    -Royal Holloway
    -Surrey
    -Edinburgh

    I'll be updating the list by the end of every week and good luck to everyone!

    I hope so, it's so sad to watch everyone at my school get offers lol while I'm sitting here with none, I guess law offers take longer too

    Have patience - the offers will come eventually! When I applied I had to wait till December to get my first invitation to interview never mind an offer! Other interviews followed for Jan then Feb then March (the joys of applying for a health care course lol).

    It's hard when your pals get offers without interview etc but you will get there in the end! In truth all Y13 was waiting for the next deadline - apply, wait for offers, reply to offers, exams, wait for results, wait for ucas to update, await confirmation from the uni and on and on it goes.

    Try to relax - it will happen for you soon enough. Good luck

    PPE at University College so many of my friends are getting offers from various uni's and I'm still waiting ...:groovy:
    Ikr! I'm a little anxious since it seems like the interviews are a long way away, but they are in less than two months! Sh*t. I sincerely wish you the best of luck. Let us know if you get an interview! It'd be nice if some of us meet up in Oxford during interviews

    If you've sent away everything can you make any changes to your choices? Pretty sure the answers no but I've had a change of heart
