    If your still waiting on a university and loads of people have already had offers and rejections (ie. Bath.) Does this mean that they're waiting for people to respond first, and if they get enough declines, then they'll give out a few more offers and if not, rejections?
    Just a little hypothesis as I can't understand why universities give out a load of offers and rejections in the week after the deadline, and then wait for ages before anyone hears from them again.
    Bath hasn't sent out many replies at all.

    really? What were your GCSE results like?
    I did not do GCSE, I am an international student but I am doing my A Levels in the UK.

    Btw, how long do you think UCL and Warwick will take to make their decision?

    I applied late November.

    Cheers

    GCSE: 4 A*'s, 6 A's, 1 B.
    AS: 5 A's (Maths, Further Maths, Geography, Economics, General Studies)
    A2 Predictions: 4 A*'s 1 A (In Further Maths).

    Really do not think gcse's mean too much when applying for top courses if you step it up at AS personally!

    What makes you think Economics will be any less competitive? Some of the arts courses, sure, but I very much doubt Economics will see a hit in application numbers.
