    I know it doesn't mean I won't get an offer, but if they are able to make such quick decisions on some, there must be a reason why I'm not getting one
    tbf most uni's have only sent out a very small amount of offers atm, the majority will be sent out over next few months. Obviously how long it takes depends on how competitive uni's you're applying to compared to your grades. I'm just trying to forget about it and concentrate on actually doing well on the a-levels im taking

    this is so hypocritical of me seeing as im constantly worrying about it as well, but it really is the most pointless thing to worry about as cant change anything now

    haha looks like we have a pretty high chance of seeing each other some point in the future then lol

    and I sent mine off on the 3rd and got an offer from Southampton on the 10th and Birmingham today!

    why did you choose oxford? i literally just went for cambridge because they seem to put less emphasis on the admissions test (which i am terrified of lol)
    Ooh we sent them on the same day, fingers crossed I can hope to receive something back soon then haha! Going a bit mad here obsessively checking track...

    I chose Oxford for some pretty silly reasons really, didn't even look at cambridge! Some of the reasons included 1) It's closer to where I live, 2) 2 of my teachers went there, including my French teacher and 3) I've just always felt some sort of internal loyalty toward someone them and I have no idea why! Have always supported them in the boat races and on university challenge... so it just kind of felt right to choose them over cambridge!

    How did you get an unconditional??



    When did you apply? I'm applying for English and French and am simply dying to send mine off by the end of this week.
    I applied just over a week ago now and Nottingham were the first to get back to me

    Are Warwick, Durham, Bath, Surrey and Cambridge sending out acknowledgments?
    I have applied to all of those - apart from Surrey. I got acknowledgements relatively quickly from Bath and Cambridge but, took around two days for Warwick and Durham.

    Open application, as realistically with the small chance I have of getting in, I don't really mind where I end up going. All the colleges I went to on open day were all equally amazing!

    I think because my predicted grades were higher than the requirements and I did pretty well at GCSE. I've heard that it's not uncommon to get one from Nottingham, but the offer only becomes unconditional if you accept it as your firm choice

    I also applied to Cambridge, Bath and Warwick. They all sent acknowledgement emails within a day for me. Bath sent me a login for their application tracker and Cambridge sent me the SAQ. St John's college also sent me a few emails, acknowledging my application and giving me a login to their website.

    Hey! I sent my application off nearly 2 weeks ago, and only received an acknowledgement email yesterday! Are you also a fellow maths applicant?

    I got AAA at AS (Maths, Chem and Bio) and did some FM modules, but this year I am completing my AS in FM and doing it for A-Level. Managed to get mid 90 ums for all maths modules (and 88 in Mechanics 2!)
    Yes I'm applying to maths as well (technically speaking it's actually maths and stats).

    What other universities are you applying to?

    This is quite specific but did Bath make you change your password for their system, and did they have really specific requirements for the password?
