    Why's everyone so bothered about acknowledgement emails? I haven't got a single yet and my form was sent off to UCAS on Thursday morning! If you can log into track they must have received your application, so I think everyone needs to just chill :P
    Haha, I guess because people see it as their first contact :P

    I didn't start revising till Easter either, but retrospectively it might have been a good idea!

    I've got a quick question.. I'm thinking of applying to Imperial, Southampton, Cardiff and Brighton & Sussex
    Would you guys say that's pretty decent in terms of having roughly 1 risky, 2 average and maybe 1 sort of insurance application?

    That would entirely depend on what you're applying with...

    AS AAAA (dropped French at AS)
    A2 predicted A* AA
    UKCAT 717.5

    Not sure Birmingham's a good shout if you didn't get A*s in English. Sheffield decide based on the strength of your personal statement as long as your UKCAT is above 650. Bristol are 80% personal statement, 20% academics, but you're right it is very competitive (less than Leeds though). Queen's Belfast, like the person above me said, is a good shout. Have you considered Liverpool (mainly use GCSE's and PS, don't use UKCAT at all) or Cardiff (also GCSE's and PS, UKCAT only in borderline cases)?
    I picked birmingham, because i went to a summer school there and talked to an admissions tutor and i also rang them, and they said that if you've got majority a*'s anyway and a's at as level, and no below than a's in the subject u missed out on a* they do not mind, i know people who have applied to birmingham with B's in chem AS level, surely an A in english gcse and A at as level, is better than an A*in enlgish gcse and B in chem AS. i have also done enlglish extra cirrucluat and recieved an english speaking board qulaification, which may compensate for that i hope. i loved it at birmingham, i just wish i get offered a place.

    This probably sounds really condescending, but you are logging in with your UCAS number, rather than your username, aren't you? Took me 10 minutes and a locked account to figure that one out
    Haha yes I am, think I'll call them up tomorrow just to check

    Oh sweet. I've applied to Barts, Birmingham, St George's and Hull York

    Good luck with tackling the beast (the BMAT) I nearly went for it but then decided that Oxbridge/Imperial/UCL was not really for me.

    Hi guys, I called ucas today because I hadn't received a conformation email from them when I applied (Wednesday morning) and it was because my application hadn't gone through properly, so if anyone doesn't receive the apply acknowledgement email I would advice calling ucas.

    Phew! I'm glad you called them. That could have been a bit of a disaster...
