    How long after getting the email about 'your allocated college will contact you shortly' did you have to wait?

    Mine was about 6 weeks, but that was over Christmas so I should think yours will be a lot quicker! Normal people seem to have heard back within 2.

    Ah wow! I can't swear to being normal in the broader sense of the term, although I know what you mean in this case
    Thank you!

    It should show up under your useful links on AES before you get the letter so less waiting hopefully XD.

    Which college did you apply to?

    I have an offer from Hild Bede
    It'll probably be my firm too, so quite excited. A*AA, but I have the maths A* from last year so should be alright (I hope)
    Well done to everyone who has offers from Durham (y)

    Ah awesome! Well it would be quite a miracle for anyone to get into Castle at this stage!
    I applied to St Aidan's because I had no idea which one to go for and turns out it's the reject college that no one applies to! oh well :P. But I'm insanely excited to (hopefully) be going there in October!

    Someone help? - UCAS says most unis aim to reply by 31st of March. I still haven't heard from Durham and am starting to get worried as desperately need to sort summer plans (long story). Does Durham reply by 31st of March? I applied for Arch and Anth in September and still haven't heard anything!

    I guess they take a while for arch; that's what I applied to as well.
