    Hi all! I've got an offer from New Hall and have been asked to reply 'as soon as possible' saying whether I'm accepting or not. I was wondering if any people with offers from other colleges have been notified of an actual deadline by which you have to let the college know your decision - I don't want to inadvertently lose my offer!

    Just ring the college up and tell them your intentions. Your don't have to rush into making any UCAS decisions but they will consider offering your place to someone else if you decide to turn it down and let them know soon enough. I had to do exactly the same thing last year with Hilda's.

    Probably best to contact them on Monday.

    Thanks for your advice, Hildabeast. The reason I'm asking is because I have to send copies of my A level certificates to the college and I'm currently waiting for my certificates to be sent to school so I can go and collect them. I'm not sure how long this process might take, so in the meantime I don't want to lose my offer. Shall phone the college on monday as you suggested and explain the situation to them.

    I don't know about your acceptance letter from Worcester but in mine it said to contact them asap if I was planning on declining the offer - which is the same sort of thing. Don't know any Ox applicants as of yet who had to reply in writing that they planned to accept the offer though.

    I haven't replied yet either, but I will soon...I don't think there is an official date, once they have given out offers they have to wait until the UCAS deadline to hear back from you at the latest, the request in the letter is just a courtesy thing I think, and maybe something which would allow them to offer someone else your place if you are going to decline it. (UCAS deadline = 28th April I think.)

    Hey Minta, I've also got an offer from New Hall and I haven't accepted my offer (by letter or UCAS) yet either, so you're not alone! I'll have to go and talk to my Head of Sixth Form today about it. By 'copies' of certificates, do they just mean photocopies? :confused:
