    How long does it take you to get acknowledgements...? I applied around 5 hours ago but haven't had anything yet, nor the SAQ. Should I be worried?
    Mine took a day or so (from Cambridge), they sent my SAQ email at like 1am lol...but I've seen people on here that took longer so don't worry too much!

    Guys could you please help review my personal statement on my profile. its on accounting and i want to know if i can improve it because i have to send it off next week. Any help is appreciated.
    You shouldn't post your personal statement online!! It can be copied by people, or when you submit UCAS can search and say you copied it from someone else :/ I know tsr has a lot of personal statement advice flying around though

    My quickest acknowledgements came in a few hours, the slowest took just over a week so no need to worry.

    Are we supposed to receive an email from the University after we get an offer? (Bristol in specific).

    I'm applying for Glasgow too! What were you predicted and offered?
    I'm an international applicant so my grades are quite different.. I was offered 7777, which is the same as A*A*A*A* in A-levels. I guess the entry requirements are a bit higher for people outside the UK:unsure: I'm pretty sure my grades won't be good enough

    I have no idea haha, I really would like to firm Glasgow because that's the one I'm the most interested in, maybe a miracle would happen and I'd get those grades! What about you?

    EU applicant offer requirements are very high at many Scottish universities due to the low fees.

    I sent my application off for Bristol last week and I still haven't heard anything back, my course is joint honours so that might be why its taking longer (I hope lol)
