I waited two days, but that was at Cumbria. Some people I know have waited two or three weeks. I was just incredibly lucky.

Hey, I waited over a week but people heard before me and I thought I hadn't got in, but I did.
They said before 10 working days.
Universities are able to make us wait 28 days before giving us a decision. If you think it went well, it almost certainly did and you've probably got a place. Good Luck!

im the same early years 3-7.welsh half term is a week earlier than english half term and when i went on the 23rd they still had no secetary either so there could be a delay because of that as the place was practically a ghost town when i went for my interview

I had interview with sheffield yesterday for geog pgce that lasted all day - checked GTTR at around 1.30pm today, and found out I had an unconditional offer. Woop!! so can atke less than 24 hours apparently! I was getting a bit down after my first choice Birmingham rejected me, and took 2 weeks to do so, but soooooo happy today!! Congrats on yours too. Brum told me they were waiting to interview a whole pool of people before deciding, so i guess that's what takes time as well.

Thanks they did say they were deciding then and there who was getting a place (there were 4 of us on interview day), but that it could take up to a week especially with Easter, for it to be updated on track - but it came through immediately!! Never heard of anyone having a decision so fast and I read this forum a fair bit, so I'm kinda chuffed!! I hope York let you know soon, the wait can be awful i know. What course are you going for?

Still not heard now, and kinda doubtful I'll hear anything for a while, especially with it being Easter now! I didn't wanna ask when I would find out, but wish I did now ! I'm going for Maths woo

Just a quick heads up for those waiting a while: do get in touch with the institute at which you had your interview! (That doesn't just mean a while from having had your interview, since the following all happened within 10 days of my interview, just from when the university first received your application!)

GTTR has a few set "timers" within its system. I can't remember them exactly, but I believe it is something like 56 days from said institute receiving your application to giving you a reply, and/or 28 days from said institute first telling you of an interview to receiving a reply.

If said university does not reply within the given time frame, GTTR automatically updates with "unsuccessful."

For me, the timer from Reading just so happened to coincide with when they were going to let me know if I had been successful or not. Being abroad at the time, I didn't have access to my post, just track. So, when I signed into track to find out that my application had been forward to the next institute, I was absolutely gutted. I thought my interview had gone great! Anyhow, 2 days later, my housemate (under instruction from me to open any post from Reading) informed me that I was successful and had a conditional offer!

So, I went back to track and dug a little deeper. On another screen it said "Reading: Unsuccessful - No decision received." I was shocked that they could do this.

Got back in touch with Reading, who apologised for the inconvenience and informed me that I had to ring track, tell them to withdraw my aplication from the new university and have them replace my 3rd university with Reading so it would get sent back there.

So, yeah, don't be afraid to be in touch with the universities! It can save some very unnecessary disappointment! (Reading PGCE Chemistry, here I come!...Subject to conditions :P)
