    Hi,
    I .ve applied for Architecture at UCL, got my interview inviation and a request for an additional ps. Should this be handwritten ? I remember reading that they judge your handwriting, but i guess u can still write it on the computer ,right? Also, i.ve got a decent portfolio, is it damaging if i don.t have any 3D models? don.t really do that at school

    Just seen this under "When can I expect to receive a decision on my application?" on the page Interpretation linked:

    "Once we receive your application from UCAS we aim to make an initial decision as to whether to invite you to complete a questionnaire or to attend an interview within four weeks. If a decision is delayed beyond four weeks it is usually because your UCAS form did not contain sufficient information (e.g., incomplete information about predicted grades or missing reference). Please note that all applications must include predicted grades for any exams which have not yet been taken. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that this information is provided on the UCAS form.

    Once you have returned your questionnaire to us and have (where appropriate) been to one of our UCAS BSc Psychology Open Day, you can expect to receive a decision through UCAS within four weeks.

    If you are concerned that you have not heard from us after this four week timeframe then you are welcome to email the Admissions Officer."

    My got sent off on October 20th so not too long left . Not to be downbeat but has anyone been/heard of someone being rejected for Psychology yet?
    I applied Oct 4th and haven't heard anything... Only an acknowledgement. But two other people at my school have applied for courses at UCL with Languages and haven't heard anything either...

    It said on the admissions procedure thing that people were welcome to contact the psychology admissions officer via email if they hadn't heard anything in the 4 weeks. I'm starting to think that the information may be out of date though if it's been much longer for some people to hear anything.
    Also, this was just on the psychology bit of the website so other departments may have totally different procedures. I don't think that was clear in my original post.

    Oh my.. this doesn't look good I haven't got one! when did you send your application off? Maybe they're sending them to international students first? gahhh, this has worried me now!
    (Original post by Noodlzzz)
    Does this mean some special cases (international, mature, special considerations etc.) get interviews / questionnaires or does everyone do you reckon? Oh FML, no questionnaire in inbox When did you send yours off?
    I think I sent my application off on Oct 11-ish. I wouldn't be too worried, maybe UCL's system is just being slow, as usual. I was thinking maybe it's because my PS isn't good enough and they want to know more about me? But that's complete speculation...


    (Original post by blahblah16)
    What sort of questions are there? Are they subject specific or general "why do you want to go to UCL?" questions?
    The questions are specfic to the subject.

    I also have my interview tomorrow haha, i'm not nervous at all though.

    I think they will ask a few maths/ physics questions...my guess is it'll probably be stuff based on differential equations (in context) and stuff on DC electricity. (and anything you included in your PS)
    I have a UCL EEE interview on 24th and I was just wondering what it was like and what types of questions did they ask?
