    I personally believe that ruining one's Christmas or New Year is an evil thing to do. So, if the universities you have applied to are evil, then you will receive a rejection letter around this time of year. However, there are different degrees of evilness. For instance, I believe Oxbridge are evil for not giving out the offers before Christmas. But this is not considered to be seriously evil. However, in some cases it's good not to. If the university is determined to ruin your holidays, you will receive the rejection on Christmas eve and have a very miserable Christmas and new year.

    On the contrary, if the university thinks you deserve a "VERY" happy Christmas, then you will receive your offer on the Christmas Eve. If it doesn't want you to have a briliant Xmas, but still want you to enjoy yourself in the New Year, then you'll receive your offer after Boxing day but before the New Year.

    So, have you applied to any evil/good universities recently?
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
