    One of the universities I've applied to is Kent. I originally applied to study English Language (English and American Literature), then for some reason changed the course I'd applied to. Got a conditional offer for said course on the basis that I got a B in History after my resits. Rang up and explained that after my resits I could only get the D to a C... I asked if I could change (again) back to my original choice of course, they said yes and that my conditional offer would be changed to me getting a C.

    All is well and good, the resit went well, however they haven't changed the course code and offer on my UCAS application. The conversations I had with the admissions officers were back in November. Sent a polite e-mail that I was panicking a little and they replied apologising and that applications weren't yet being reviewed.

    I know I'm being impatient but just wondered how long applications can take to be reviewed and whether or not the course is just undersubscribed, for example, and that is why I haven't yet had my application reviewed... any idea's??

    They have until the end of march to let you know, so it could really be any time up until then. It sounds like they are aware of the situation so I would give them a little longer yet.

    If it bothers you that much then give them another email, but it sounds like they have it under control to be honest.
