    I'm waiting for three universities to respond.

    They've had my application since October the 12th.

    EDIT: Why on earth would I get negged for this...

    I'm still waiting for all 5! I'm quite sure no-one else is in this situation either....rather worrying.

    I also got negged for this - blame lies squarely with 'air-ninety-one'

    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 .
    Hi, I've applied to Edinburgh too (still not heard anything either). What did you apply in?
    I haven't actually heard from any of my five choices yet.

    I applied for geology, how about you? Aaw , well I guess no news is good news, at least you haven't had any rejections . When did you send your application off, and where else have you applied? A lot of the Scottish unis are supposed to have reputations for being slower to respond than the rest of the UK... don't worry, I bet you'll hear from somewhere soon

    I'm still waiting for four of mine to respond.

    I set mine on November 12th and got an offer on December 2nd from Chester, but I've heard nothing since then... It is a bit maddening, I'm checking UCAS all of the time but to no avail. I have absolutely no patience

    Im also still waiting for all 5, however i applied just before the deadline. 3 of the unis have sent me letters asking about details concerning my criminal conviction, i replied and havnt heard anything back yet... im not that worried tho ..only about how much damage a criminal record can cause.

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

    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 heard from only 2/4 (4 as I am applying to medicine) soooooo still waiting:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I'm waiting for one uni (Bath) - which is also my top choice! I got all other offers within 2 weeks of sending off my application (it was sent the beginning of December) but I've still not heard from my top choice except for an acknowledgement. You are definitely not alone!

    I am still waiting on Plymouth Uni although to be fair they did email me last week to get confirmation of my previous qualifications so I may have a bit longer to wait still.

    Edit: Why the neg? :confused:
    Edinburgh is the only one still pending for me as well; do you know if they've rejected people yet, or have they just made absolutely no effort regarding decisions whatsoever?

    They've definitely handed out a few rejections and unconditionals at least, I know one guy who got rejected from Applied Sport Science and another who got an unconditional for Law.

    I'm still waiting on 4 of my choices... So annoying to watch people get offers who sent their application on the deadline when I've had mine sent for ages now.

    I applied in adult nursing. I sent my application at the start of December. I applied to two Scottish unis but I haven't heard from the English ones either. Hopefully it will come soon. Good luck with your application.
