    Does anyone know if any of York, Leeds and Manchester give out many unconditionals? Really don't expect any and I want to work towards my unis but was just wondering really. Other two choices are Warwick and Nottingham which I know are very competitive so I know they won't!

    I would also like to know this.

    Sent off my application to Oxford, LSE, Warwick and Bristol on the 11th and have received acknowledgements from all, but no offers/rejections yet. Obviously Oxford are still waiting for the TSA and LSE take ages, but has anyone heard anything from Warwick or Bristol and if so when did you send in your application?
    Sent off my application for econ on the 7th and got an offer from Bristol on the 13th (A*AA).
    Only got an acknowledgment from Warwick so far (10/10/16)

    I've only had an acknowledgement from Warwick too, was a bit worried for a few days as they got back to me so quickly last year but I haven't found anyone with an offer from them yet (though granted I haven't been looking very hard). Hopefully they'll get back to us soon because I was counting on an offer/rejection from them ASAP so I can figure out my other choice, only Oxford and Warwick down at the moment.

    Let me know if you hear anything from them please!

    6 days then, which means with a bit of luck they should be getting back to me around about now

    Yeah I haven't seen anyone with a Warwick offer so far. Last year they were either really quick or took exceedingly long, so hopefully it's not the latter this time around! Are you going for E&M or PPE at Oxford?

    ----

    Also everyone, I just got another email from LSE asking for Maths UMS, so that part of my application is seemingly moving on a bit. I doubt they'll actually get to the offer/rejection stage for a good while yet though; they tend to make rounds of offers in December.

    Did LSE ask for UMS only in Maths or did they ask for all the UMS you have, but you only had Maths?

    They ask for UMS from each of the Maths units that you sat, and any Further Maths units if applicable. I just had to list my other subjects and what grade I got in it, no UMS needed for those.

    Have any economic applicants received an offer from Warwick?
    Too early to get an offer for Economics in the top universities I think...

    I got acknowledgement from all universities so far. (They all gave between 1-3 days after I applied).
    Have LSE and UCL not emailed you yet?

    By the way, in the LSE form, there is a part where they ask about our AS-Level grades in subjects other than Maths and Further Maths. Are we supposed to write our A-Level grades (if we have already done our A-Levels) or should we just write our AS-Level grades?
    I feel like the form was written for students who have only done their AS, since they don't ask anything related to students who have already done their A-Levels.

    Have you blocked the private message option?
    Just asking since I sent a private message to you about 1 week ago, but I felt like you didn't receive it for some reason, I am asking because your profile doesn't show the PM option, but somehow I found an alternative way to send it, which might have not worked.

    I already have my full A Levels too, so I put all my Maths units into the section specified (including A2), but only my AS grades for the others since that's what it asked. They'll see on UCAS anyway so I don't think it really matters - the important part of this form is the Maths UMS.

    I had an offer from Warwick around this time last year so I wouldn't rule it out.

    Is this meant for me? I didn't apply to UCL or LSE. I don't know about the form, but I'd probably write all Maths/FM UMS.

    Nope, haven't blocked it. I might have forgotten to reply, I'll check later today.

    Oh, no wonder everyone is asking about Warwick. That must have felt great last year

    Which universities are you applying to? For what courses?
    I thought you applied for Economics last year, so i was assuming its still the same, my bad.

    Yeah, I also put all the Maths and Further Maths units I did. For other subjects, I emailed them to ask, but they haven't replied yet. I guess I will write the AS grade as well, since it might make it easier for them to compare me with other applicants and also because as you said, all my data is in UCAS anyway.
