    Is this unusual as I was for swift conditionals from at least 1 of my choices, especially the lower ones.
    How long is the norm for getting any conditionals?

    No, it's not unusual. Getting 3 offers within 5 days of sending off your UCAS would be unusual! There is no norm for getting offers, some universities give out offers from September, others wait until the Jan 15th deadline then start sorting through applications and giving them out.

    Thats no time at all! People go for months without getting any conditionals (although it does depend where and what you're applying for).

    Totally normal.

    Acknowledgements next to nothing, and are sent out normally very quickly upon recieveing your application, that's if the universities choose to send them at all! I had my 5 acknowledgements all within a week, it really doesn't mean much.

    As for offers, you'd be pretty lucky to get an offer within just 5 days. Many people go weeks, even months without offers. It all depends on how the universities deal with them, many choose to leave 95% of applications until the 15th of January deadline before making offers (the date where you are gaureented equal consideration), so don't worry..even if you are way over the asking grades for some universties, just give it a few weeks Good luck

    Chill, seriously.

    My UCAS got sent off almost two weeks ago, and all I've got is one acknowledgement.

    Just relax, put the kettle on, and wait for the offers to start rolling in.

    You've got a long time to wait yet, 5 days is no time at all. It's not at all unusual, so be patient and good luck

    Thats normal. Yes I know you want the offers but give it time. It's really annoying and you find yourself checking track all the time. But some will wait, some will take longer and some will have more applications meaning that it takes longer. Try to relax.

    So sorry man, seems like they don't want you. Looks like it's ASDA shelf stacking from now on.

    There's one of these every 30 mins, stop worrying.

    This happens every year. Yes you want them to appear, no checking TRACK every five minutes daily wont make them appear faster. They will arrive one way or the other, patience is a virtue.
