    Omg well done you!!!! You must be over the moon! What will your top two be?
    I've had offers from Chester (BCC) and Lancaster (AAB) I had an email from Hope last wednesday saying that within the next 7 days I will hear from them so fingers crossed!

    Thanks! I am, especially as I had to repeat year 12 (I got EEUU the first time doing maths/sciences). My firm is Cardiff, likely for the Social Analytics one, and my insurance will be Aberystwyth.

    Well done on your offers!

    Ah okay! Thanks! Can't wait for my application to be sent off now!
    Good Luck!

    (Applying for Psychology)

    UEA got back to me within a day, Bristol within 3 days, and Exeter gave me an offer exactly 2 weeks later! Exeter was a surprise because they have a reputation of taking ages to get back to you so that was awesome.

    Waiting on Bath and Birmingham - i've only seen 2 people on a particular forum get offers from Birmingham for Psych, and no one from Bath yet. I think Bath take longer for Psychology because it's one of their most competitive courses

    Got an offer from Southhampton, Birmingham, Exeter and Durham. Durham apparently don't normally give offers till around January (?) so everyone at school is mad at me. Don't expect Durham offers soon in general but Birmingham are on top of things for sure.

    I've got offers to study geography at Lancaster, Durham, Newcastle and York. Quite surprised I got a Durham offer now as apparently they usually take a while. Just waiting to get rejected from Oxford now and I'm all set!

    Warwick, York and Leeds all got back to me very quickly. Durham is taking its time, which is normal, as no one from my school has got an offer from there yet.

    Yeah its been approximately a week for me too! I know I shouldn't be worried but i keep hearing that York is a really fast replier, so its reassuring that they haven't replied to you aswell. Must just be other departments that are the speedy ones.

    They took a few hours. They sent me an acknowledgement and that evening they sent me an offer. It is unconditional if I firm them.

    Thanks! That's what I thought but it's something to do with an Academic Excellence Scheme which means if I firm them it's unconditional

    I don't know about other unis or courses, but Bristol apparently wants to get all the applications in before making offers for their chemical physics course.
