    I got my first offer today, unconditional from Birmingham if I put it as my firm or AAB. I don't think I'll be taking this offer if I get any elsewhere though lol.

    Finally! And yes I'm a maths lad as well. Amazing choices by the way. Due to my mediocre AS performance, I'm applying to Manchester, Nottingham, UCL (optimistic choices), KCL and Surrey. What were your AS grades and courses?

    That's what I thought but so far it hasn't worked out that way lmao. Last year when I applied I received all my offers within 3 weeks and now I'm three weeks since applying and have only received one offer!!! I'm hoping it's just because I've applied a little earlier in the cycle this year waaa! Where/what have you applied to?
    I know I'm dying to know!! And I know I have a long way to go since it hasn't even been a week! I applied for Management / Business Management at St Andrews, Edinburgh, Bath and KCL!

    Ooo nice choices for you too your AS must have been quite good for those uni's , In my school we do AS and A level maths in year 1 and further maths in year 2 so I got A* in maths and AB in economics and spanish and I'm going for straight maths at all my choices
    But no offers for me so far have you got any?

    Is it true that joint honour degrees take longer to process so we shouldn't expect replies too soon?

    I'm applying for joint honours at Bristol and I applied 2 weeks ago and still haven't heard back so I assume they take longer as they have to go through both departments?

    I got AACD respectively in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry at AS (so definitely aren't the best grades for a competitive application to the Maths course of these unis). Since I'm doing A2 Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry I'm predicted A*A*C respectively (yeahso it's a bit tight). Congratulations on the A* in A Level Maths! Haven't applied yet as my sixth form college sends everyone's application off early November.

    No acknowledgement from Stirling, perhaps they just don't send one? They're the only ones that i haven't had an offer from.

    Yes, offers from Swansea and Portsmouth. Do you have any?
    I have an uconditional from Glasgow and a rejection from Strathclyde. Still waiting on Stirling, Edinburgh and Aberdeen

    Definitely pester the teacher if you have to! I had to wait 2 weeks before mine was officially sent off due to teacher and computer issues, but hopefully you get to have it sent off soon and the offers start rolling in? Are you doing the MMath degree?
    Yeah I am, I've asked everyday this week it was meant to get done today but never was so I'll ask again tomorrow. Yeah I am it's MMath at most and MSci at Imperial, you?
