    Holy mother of god it costs £69 for a super off peak return, and I only live a 2 hour train journey away. I'm getting the bus.

    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?


    Application sent: 03/10/2011
    Uni: UCL
    Course: Mathematics
    Decision: Conditional offer
    Grades: A*AA
    Date received: 28/10/2011
    Reaction: My first. Got to go on an introductory day to ensure the offer, but absolutely ecstatic Couldn't stop smiling for ages!
    Has your UCAS track been updated now with the conditions? You mentioned it was blank but did the conditions mentioned by you Decision: Conditional offer
    Grades: A*AA get updated after that? Or were the conditions mentioned in the email itself?

    thanks

    It most probably depends on the universities and courses to which one applies for. When was your application to UCAS sent out and what are your subjects?

    On another note, is there anyone who had a chance to look at the entire UCAS form after submission? Heard there is a procedure to request it. Has someone tried it here?

    That really helps.

    Were you an Oxford/Cambridge applicant? How long did it take for you to hear about the first offer?

    Sorry for not being clear.

    I meant to which course codes and universities did you apply?

    (Isn't it hardly three weeks for one to expect offers?)

    Yeah I was, I had my application processed about the 12th October. Heard from Nottingham on the 4th November and it was a reduced offer Then on the 16th November, got an interview for Cambridge and an offer from York. On the 8th December had my interview for Cambridge. 16th December offer from Kings, 7th January offer from Cambridge and the 8th March rejection from Durham

    In the end, final week of exams was a complete mess (was referred back to counselling, almost had a breakdown for reasons outside my control) and now I'm at Kings and loving it :love:

    It appears, Universities take around 2 months to give out a decision on an average.

    Glad that you are in a place which you love it!

    Sorry to hear on the final week of exams' issues. So, did you decline the Cambridge and Nottingham offers? Or was your King's conditions easier to achieve?

    Yeah, I know people who didn't receive any offers until after February and he was applying for maths :yep:

    Actually Kings was my insurance and Cambridge was my firm. But when I went to both unis I fell in love with both (Kings being in London meant that it was very lively, whilst Cambridge had the pretty factor and my college had ducks :love: )

    I declined Nottingham and York. I had emailed Durham as to why they rejected me, but even after rejecting me they were still promoting themselves to me. In the end happy I didn't get an offer as it made me picking an insurance choice easier (plus I didn't even like Durham that much )

    No, not at all. I did though as I'd hadn't visited the university before, or the city, or even that area of the country...

    It's worth visiting though - the city is amazing and the area with the university is pretty sweet. I'm fairly close to Bristol so can get train tickets there for £12 off-peak. Had a nice uni tour on Friday with FREE ICE-CREAM
