    Thank you!

    I submitted it right at the beginning of October - UCAS sent through my welcome letter on the 3rd October. This was my first offer - and the only one I expect before Christmas - I've also applied to Oxford, Bristol, Durham and St. Andrews. They all seem fairly lethargic besides Oxford, and my chances of getting in there aren't superb!
    Does the mean UCAS status is still blank even after this letter? Is it mentioned when it would be updated?

    It's still blank - the letter specifically says that offers are dependent on going on this visit to UCL, so if I don't go, I lose the offer. I guess they will update it after I go there?

    You could be right. It is just a formality though but feels good to see a line item in UCAS with a decision earlier though. That is the only difference between the unofficial and official update, I guess.

    Also, may be the conditions won't be known until Nov 23rd then!

    Last year Bristol replied in January and Durham replied in February, you could be waiting a while :lol:
    Oh.

    On a different note, can I ask what you got at A Level, coz I saw on ur page u were rejected by Durham, and I was thinking that Durham is below Warwick and was expecting them to be relatively lenient etc,,, so basically was surprised at seeing Durham rejection... Just Curious....

    i think i know whats up. in the 'recommendation for offer' letter of mine, UCL states that its impossible for me to visit UCL on the Open Day because i live in Asia. so they give me an official letter. bam, A*A for further maths and maths in any order. A for physics or economics and a pass in the other.

    Did you have to fill a fee status questionnaire form prior to the UCL offer? (Cambridge asks for it)

    offered A*AA for G100 in UCL.

    received acknowledgement from kings, lse, ucl, cambridge.

    nothing from Imperial yet, make me feel like they didnt even receive my application. wth.
    Did Imperial send out the acknowledgement yet?

    Is UCL your first offer? Saw a couple of offers from Kings in TSR.

    Goodluck with your others!!

    Different universities make their decisions differently.

    Warwick give out really hard offers to everybody predicted AAB or better and then let the candidates "self-select" using STEP.

    Durham look at UMS and give out a much smaller number of offers.

    Last year Bristol didn't give any offers until after the Jan 15th deadline and then were choosy about who they gave offers to - an A* in Maths by the end of year 12 wasn't enough if your unrelated AS grades weren't good!

    Bath have two standard offers. You might be given one of them, the other one of them or both, with no obvious logic as to who got what.
