    I thought it was bad enough just waiting for my application to be processed by UCAS. Now that has just this minute happened (), I realise I'm in for a whole new level of anticipation torture.

    I hope they make this quick and painless.
    ah don't worry, the longer you wait, the better it gets! (well, either that or i'm strange XD)

    I had an interview at Salford Uni yesterday for Social Work, I thought it went ok..I said quite alot and made a good contribution to the discussion! When we asked them how long it would take for a decision they said "Fairly Shortly"..omg how long is a piece of string?! Wish they would be more specific! Does anyone know more specifically about when they are giving out decisions etc?
    I've got an interview at Leeds on Monday 13th and then Huddersfield on Wednesday 15th so fingers crossed! Hopefully they will give me a more direct timeline lol..
    I hateeeee waiting, I'm such an impatient person

    Birmingham City
    Bournemouth
    Royal Holloway
    Nottingham Trent
    St Mary's Twickenham

    I've applied for the following:

    University of York/Writing, Directing and Performance/ABB
    University of East Anglia/Scriptwriting and Performance/AAB
    Royal Holloway/Drama and Creative Writing/AAB
    University of Manchester/Drama and Screen Studies/AAB
    Bath Spa University/Theatre Studies and Creative Writing/BBC

    I REALLY want to go to York so badly!!!

    I'm predicted AAA. Will probably come out with AAB/ABB.

    I applied over a month ago and so far I've just got an interview from Manchester in January. I also have to do an essay, but i have good ideas for that.

    Quick Question: If you're selected for interview, how many applicants are you up against compared to how many you were before? So say, for example, 9 people apply per place, how many of those will be invited for interview per place, typically?

    Thanks.

    It's impossible to know that I'm afraid as every university/course will be different. Your best bet is to ring the university anonymously and ask them, or see if there are any statistics on their websites.

    I believe Oxford give out decisions on Christmas Eve (24th).
    Cambridge give out decisions on the 5th of January. Presents day in Spain is the 6th of January (the Kings' Day), so this one will either be the best or worst one of my life...

    Got three in the bag and they're my first second and fourth choices so its aweosme to have them in the bag but at the same time the nerves of waiting for the big one have kind of disappeared lol, UCAS Track has earned itself a bit of a break from constant checking...im not complaining though - would have been nerve-wracking over christmas otherwise...
