    My application was sent off on the 15th of October. My first offer was from Warwick for Mathematics which I got 8 days later, on the 23rd. I'm still waiting to hear back from Durham for the same course.

    Yes I just heard back last week! Took about the same for me after all! Are you thinking of firming Cardiff or anything??
    Congratulations! I think Cardiff will be my firm, I'm still waiting to hear back from Leicester though which I also really like what about you?? And where else have you applied??

    Ok guys this is stupid but I am trying to register on UCLs Portico and i do not get what my password must be. It says
    The password must be exactly 8 characters long and must contain at least 3 of the following:
    • Lowercase characters
    • Uppercase characters
    • Digits
    • Special characters from this set % ^ * ( ) + - = ; , ? / & [ ] { }

    Additionally, make sure that the password that you choose:
    • Does not contain your firstname or surname
    • Is not based on a dictionary word or a proper name
    but even after trying many combinations according to the requirements i couldnt seem to have a "strong password". Please help
    have you tried replacing letters with numbers and/or symbols

    Thank you! Warwick is my first choice so I'm pretty happy right now haha
    Warwick is sick. I would have applied there but I live in Coventry and didn't want to apply to somewhere so close. The campus is really nice

    Any idea if any universities send out offers over Christmas? Heard they don't so I don't want to end up checking it all the time if there's no chance of offers popping up! xD

    I think they will stop sending offers from 23/12 because purely they need their Christmas break too and probably will start sending out offers from 4/1 .

    I'm thinking Warwick as my firm at the minute, but still not fully decided I very nearly picked Leicester over Cardiff when applying!! Warwick, QMuL, Kent and Portsmouth, you??

    Which course did you apply for in LSE? How come they give you an offer so fast lol shouldn't it take minimum 8 weeks?

    So far I've heard back from QMUL, KCL and UCL for English. Queen Mary want AAB but UCL and KCL only want AA. I'm still waiting on Oxford and Warwick (for English and Creative Writing). But if the latter two don't work out then I think I'm gonna firm KCL and insure UCL

    Sociology, I got the 8 week email on the 7th December but an offer 10 days later, I don't think it is meant to take any specific length of time but it can take up to 8 weeks or more for them to make a decision.
