    Hi guys I have 2 questions to ask, hoping someone will know the answer...

    Firstly, I had my interview at UCL on the 24th of November for English, and at the interview, the interviewers said I should receive my letter within 3-5 weeks of the inerview itself. Today I had a brief look at the English department's admission procedure on their website and it said no letters will be sent out until after the January the 15th deadline...which is it?!

    Secondly, I had my interview at Trinity Hall to read English on Wednesday and the interviewers said I should hear some time between Christmas and New Year, and yet their website states that applicants will receive their letters in the first week or two of January. I know this isn't really important as they are only a couple of weeks apart but I don't want to be frantically checking the post every day in expectation of a letter when it won't be delivered until after the new year!

    Thanks x

    I think sometimes they forget to update the websites, just go with what the person at your interviews said good luck.

    go by what they told you at the interview.They just say that thing on the website to cover their backs in case things are late.
    I had my interview november 25th last year and got my ucas updated on the 22nd december, not quite 2-3 weeks but sooner than the website said. good luck!

    Wow well congrats for getting in! My interview went so terribly I'm just waiting for that rejection! So did they notify you by email/ucas before you received a letter then?
