    It's it alright to not get offers when application processed on the 12th?
    All my unis acknowledged me, but some others are getting offers :/
    Some Universities take longer than others to give out offers, and some departments take longer than others to give out offers! Some may process the applications in batches, so you may have to wait longer than others who applied a few days before you.

    It won't be a hinderance to have applied on the 12th. Be patient and I'm sure the offers will flood in before too long

    I guess, Chemistry is a competitive thing to do and the unis are quite good.
    But then you just can't help but to panic don't you, when offers are flooding in for the others. :/
    Ahh well, patience is a virtue.

    I agree completely, I panicked so much when I heard of other people getting offers for the course I applied to at the Uni's I applied to. Just try not to panic too much, because you might not hear anything until January, and you don't want to torture yourself for 3 months!

    Patience is a virtue,
    Virtue is grace,
    Grace is a little girl who wouldn't wash her face.

    October 20th. So you've got the jump on me there. Might I ask what your grades are like? I got ABCC at AS and I'm predicted ABB at A2...
    Yeah, only a few weeks! I'm sure they'll start replying soon! Yeah, I got AAAB at AS this year, and a B in 2009. Annd, I'm predicted A*A*A*A, but it's more likely to be A*AAA. You've definately got the grades for it though. And with a decent personal statement, there should be no reason why they don't consider giving you a place. :grin:

    I like the university and everything so I've left it as my last choice but I'm not too keen on the course. They've only just put up a new version of the course content and it says you have to do cell biology which I cannot do at all.

    Ugh, add me to the list of people impatiently waiting for offers. I sent mine in a couple of weeks ago, and since then I've been checking my email like never before. :<

    I hate this wait!

    What irks me the most is that I bet it takes admissions tutors a mere two minutes to make a decision. I feel like shouting 'PLEASE SIR, DEDICATE TWO MINUTES OF YOUR TIME TO PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!"

    Anyone know if all the universities are on a reading week? I know some that are and just wondering whether I should give up hope of offers this week.

    The scientists don't get reading week so the university is still up and running.
