    I'm in exactly the same situation except that I'm waiting on St Andrews. They've been my favourite right from the word go (I think I even preferred them to Oxford!) and a few of my friends have got offers from them which is not helping haha. I'm going a bit loopy too, checking Track an obscene amount and all that. What I find most scary is that I might have to wait until the end of March for a reply because they're well within heir timeframe for replying to offers. Aaaah! I'll have broken the refresh button on my computer by then! :P
    I'm trying not to check Track because I have it so UCAS send me an email if something's changed. This does mean though, that every time my phone flashes I think it's an email from UCAS. AND IT NEVER IS! Nightmare! Yeah, make sure you go easy on the refresh button, haha.

    I know what you mean about they don't have to reply until the end of March, too. I'm also worried I won't get the accommodation I want because it's first come first serve. On the other hand, I don't even know if I'm going to get a place!

    Everyone keeps telling me "Oh don't worry, Exeter and Sussex are even better than Bath!" But they don't get it. I want Bath and this is making me stir craaazy!

    (PS. I heard St. Andrews is beautiful!)

    Hey ! Hull, Anglia Ruskin, Bedfordshire and LJMU all quickly offered me conditional offers. All came 2 weeks after my application

    However wolverhampton (who is 160 ucas points) is taking it's time To think hull and ljmu who offered me 260 and 240 points was quick off the mark but one with lesser requirements is taking a really long time !

    I really want a rejection/offer so I know exactly where every open day I'll be attending will be. I should be going to one on 26th february.

    Every single time I get an email I swear I have a mini-heart attack... I don't know if I'd feel better staring at Track hitting refresh all day actually

    I'm waiting for Bath and it's driving me absolutely crazy. It's the only university I've ever really considered going to and yet they're the only one who hasn't got back to me, despite getting offers from everywhere else I applied to! It's really worrying me that they're taking so long. Is anyone else in a similar situation?
    i'm waiting for bath too i want to put bath as my firm as well, so it's really getting to me. ah, if i get a rejection then i'm going to feel so annoyed about having to wait for such a long time....gahhh. i just want to hear back already.

    I am applying for university for this upcoming academic year, I have heard from three out of my five choices. The other two I am still waiting for a reply. Ironically one of those is my preferred first choice, that being the University of Chester.

    The other is Staffordshire University, I feel very knocked back by my spate of disappointments after been unsuccessful in regards to these other institutions. So I feel as though I won't get into either Chester or Staffordshire. It is already mid February and I have heard nothing from these two establishments. My tutor did advise me that these Universities would be "heavily oversubscribed". So this led me to believe that my chances were slim, plus the fact that I have heard nothing. Perhaps they have already accepted the majority of their candidates?

    My question is: Is anyone else still awaiting for their university decisions?

    Currently as it stands, I have one conditional offer to do a foundation degree (with top up) at my own college, which is basically an advanced version of what I am now doing. However this was originally my 'back up' plan. I am now left grumbling at this prospect, that I will have to take this offer and stay at home. Something which I intended to avoid, and did everything within my power to prevent. But it looks as though 'Beggars can't be choosers". I am considering going through UCAS Extra, but not sure if this would be worth it?

    Anyone got any advice for me please?
    By the way, I'm no troll (just for the record)
    Thanks.

    I thought you could only use extra if you got no offers or declined them all? :confused:
    You're right - but what Pheebs1201 meant was that even if the user got an offer and firmed it, it would still be possible to turn down the place after Results and reapply next year. [You'll have to read her post again :tongue:]

    I want to put it as my firm, too. And yes same! At least if they were going to reject me, they could have done it earlier so I can stop worrying and concentrate on going somewhere else. (But I want to go to Bath :-()

    Don't worry, I have also not received an offer from Chester yet (which is my 1st choice as well!).
    It’s good to know that I'm not the only person who hasn't received an offer yet. Patience is a virtue I suppose

    Universities have until the start of May to give offers, stop worrying. Some just take longer than others

    I'm still waiting for two replies, there is plenty of time left so don't worry!

    If you applied by the 15th of January, universities aim to have handed out all replies by the 31st of March and they must send a reply by the 6th of May, otherwise UCAS change the reply to unsuccessful.

    Don't worry too much about it. I'm still waiting on one of my choices, Edinburgh, although they have a reputation for being very slow. One of my friends has applied to Chester actually, and she hasn't heard back from them either despite having offers from all of her other choices. Some universities are just slower than others .

    Edit: Why the neg? :confused:
