    Is it true that universities that have closed for the holidays will not be looking at any UCAS applications?! So I will not receive anything from any uni's until they re-open??!

    Well if you haven't realised at this moment that it is less than a week to Christmas...

    Its 10 days, more than a week...

    And OP you can't expect them to work 24/7! Just like you are unlikely to get offers at weekends if the application office is shut at weekend. I know it kills waiting (trust me, I heard back from one uni on 31st of March), but you just have to deal with it. Get in the Christmas spirit and put it out of your mind.

    EDIT: Some unis do give out offers over this time though, so don't stop checking

    Tbh some unis don't make offers till March, and Christmas holidays aren't that long, I'm sure you'll survive till then Although I do understand that an offer as a Christmas present would be nice...

    Well, I've decided not to check anyway over Christmas, just in case I get a rejection and makes me all down :'( So yeah, maybe look at it that way, if it's bad you would rather not know over Christmas! Plus, it could then make you feel less motivated to revise for Jan!
