    No, it does tell you to wait for it because your ID might change, but you can try it as soon as it is sent off and there is a pretty good chance it will work.
    I read somewhere that your ID only changes if you're a re-applicant?

    How can you have offers already? Don't the admissions tutors have to look at your predicated grades to give an offer? My teachers said those aren't final until January :/. I guess it might be different for schools that certificate though.

    Also I was wondering, is it wiser to apply for a MEng rather than BEng? I'm not sure, but my 6th form head said that applying for MEng would be better and if they didn't think I was good enough for it they would put me in the BEng course. I'm not sure which to apply for at the moment, but surely applying for BEng would be easier for an offer?
    Your Head of 6th is right - if you have the grades, apply for the MEng. If they won't accept you for that, they'll be quite likely to offer you the BEng instead. Also, when it comes to Results Day, people who miss their offers for the MEng quite often get a place for the BEng instead.

    I see, so in that case there isn't anything to lose if I apply for MEng. But shouldn't everyone just apply for MEng if this is true? Unless of course they don't want to study for the extra year.

    It seems to be true that re-applicants get given a temporary new ID, then when it comes to track it reverts back to the old ID (It certainly did for me, being a re-applicant), but that is not to say there are not other possible reasons why it could change.

    Well if you think you have the grades to get accepted into an MEng course, then do so.
    But if you are in doubt, why don't you apply for the BEng course - quite a few universities will allow you to transfer to the MEng in your second or third year if you're doing well enough

    I got my first two offers only days apart and I have a feeling the other unis will take longer to make a decision. At least Cardiff acknowledged me.

    no offers as yet

    but a girl and boy from ym school got offers from Sheffield and Manchester respectively
    and another girl has an interview at Nottingham, so looks like the relay of offers has begun...hope the baton is passed to me soon

    I sent my UCAS application to study psychology on the 12th of October to:

    Cambridge (Newnham)
    Birmingham
    Sheffield
    Reading
    Bangor

    and so far i have only heard something back from Cambridge, which was for my SAQ and essays.....

    I have noticed that Sheffield give offers out quite early, but i have not heard anything from them even though my predicted grades are much higher than required.....:confused:

    Lots of people on the student room have already had offers back from sheffield.

    Has anyone else received any offers from these universities yet???
