    I'm really worried because my friend and I sent our applications off at the same time, but she's got three offers already and I've only had one acknowledgement email from Edinburgh. How long has it taken for people to get offers for Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh and Aberdeen?
    Apparently even if the course and Uni is the same, there can still be a massive time gap between receiving offers, and you said the course was different so!

    You have an interview on Wednesday too? And im not sure. When I went to the open day the other day the head of Architecture made it sound like it was him and one other just interviewing an applicant. Not sure though
    I do, I went to one very early on and thought that too. I hope it is him he was really enthusiastic.

    I feel so unprepared. Are you bringing someone along. Because it says you can bring 1 or 2 guests. My dads taking me so do i just go in own or is he allowed into the uni as well?

    Me too, i have got questions ready to ask them but i am hoping it just comes naturally, you just never know what they will ask! I am bringing my Dad too and I am guessing and hoping that they can come around with us.

    Same. I feel like I'm just going to forget everything when I get in there. Cant believe Ive actually found someone else. I was worried it was going to be just like 10 people and thats it. Plus are you dressing formal because, in the talk the other day the head of architecture basically said come as you as it is not a job interview.

    got an offer for biomedical sciences at warwick in 8 hours, they're so quick this year! waiting on birmingham, bristol, exeter and cardiff- application received yesterday/today so just a waiting game now😁
    Last Thursday (5th November) I sent an application for Biomedical Sciences to Exeter, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. I've had acknowledgements from them all now which is nice, but they don't send offers out over the weekend so I've had to wait a bit. I expect you will too with those top universities.

    Also remember not to get too excited when you get that confirmation email

    NOTE TO EVERYONE - CARDIFF SEND OUT THEIR THREE FIRST EMAILS WITHIN A FEW MINUTES. NOTE THAT THIS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER, JUST GIVING DETAILS OF YOUR NEW ACCOUNT WITH THEIR UNIVERSITY.

    I got an offer after 12 days, but I'm still waiting for the other course I applied for at Leeds (it has a compulsory interview so maybe that's why I'm waiting). Maybe the speed at which you get an offer depends on if your predicted grades match the entry requirements and if that school has a lot of applicants?

    I hope you get your offers back soon though! :3

    Me too, really do! ahahah i know how weird, I wonder how many of us there will be and whether they will make us do any group stuff. Well I have a blouse and longish grey skirt thing, it's what i'm comfortable in and like to try to look smart most days anyway. I don't get why but i do, although i thought i wouldn't wear a suit because it's not very me but it still looks quite formal,you? It is hard to choose what is too overly formal and whats not I have found.I think the main thing is to be ourselves throughout the day, although I will probably look too formal.

    I applied for International History and Politics, which I got an offer for. It's the Politics and Parliamentary Studies I'm waiting back on. You'll probably hear back in a week or so, I got an email when my application had been sent off to the school to consider my application?

    That sounds good too, i reckon as long as you're yourself they wont mind! Me too though, my problem is i will waffle on and not get the point across so here's hoping i keep myself together ahahah.

    Oh right, I see! Yeah, I got a welcome email off them on Friday, so perhaps another week.
