    Everyone else has sent me an acknowledgement, not Manchester, though. Unlikely we meet at the interviews. I am an international applicant from India. Which college have you applied to for Cambridge?

    Applied at 4pm yesterday and have got 4 acknowledgements from Surrey, Cambridge, Bath and Warwick!

    Just hope the next email is for me to check track!!! Maybe I'm being a bit too impatient and/or eager lol
    I'm feeling the exact same lol

    My friend did medicine and was predicted 4 A*s and had to put a random course at a random uni

    He put bristol for mechanical engineering and got an offer in 1 day

    Strange since his PS was all about medicine, guess they just saw the grades and automatically accepted

    Note this was early as in the oxbridge/medicine applicants deadline

    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
    Urgh OH GOD I JUST WANT TO SEND MINE OFF


    Would love an unconditional from Nottingham because that's my aspirational but I don't think that'll happen unless the admissions tutor is super drunk and thinks my personal statement is amazing

    Just got rejected from Queen Mary, I applied on the 11th and just received a reply about 10 minutes ago. A bit of a shame, luckily I never visited the university so I didn't get too attached!!! Bit nervous for my other choices though.

    Haha, no, I only did one exam because 2 of my courses are linear, I got an A in one exam and then screwed up my second one and got an E, C overall
