    Got an A*AA offer from Bath last Friday - and a few more at my school have got offers from Bath.

    Did you put down on UCAS you were sitting STEP/AEA?
    Congrats!

    Congrats! Can I ask though, on UCAS, in the qualifications bit, did you include STEP/AEA?
    Yes - I was a bit confused because on the open day, they said if you put down only STEP then they give you only a STEP offer, or only AEA leads to an only-AEA offer. I just put down STEP with my A-levels, dated June 2012, no other information, and nothing at all about AEA. But they still gave me an AEA option? Oh well, not complaining

    Ahh, you lucky guy. I want an offer from Bath already. *waits impatiently*

    There are no words for how jealous I am

    Congratulations! I'm surprised they've started giving out offers already... perhaps you were just too good!

    Meh. No such luck yet But hopefully a longer wait will be worth it!
    You guys will be fine! I'm really quite surprised Bath have started making offers so early - I'm the second in my school to get an offer, the day after a girl I know Don't panic, and just remember where your towel is...

    Anyone received acknowledgement from Imperial or Oxford?

    (Probably not, but are we expected to receive acknowledgements from Ox/Cam by submission deadline, i.e. today?)

    I think Oxford are slower than Cambridge at acknowledging but they probably should acknowledge you today.

    How long did UCL take to respond to your email? I sent mine yesterday evening. No replies yet (although it has not been long...).
    Almost exactly 12 hours.

    So must they send acknowledgements out by Oct 15th? This is very worrying if that's the case. Have not received any update from them yet.

    I'm assuming this was nothing more than a thank you which was what I got?.

    Not necessarily.

    If you sent off your UCAS application in time, they will have it. Don't worry. :p:

    Imperial are notorious for this. Happens every year. The first I heard from them last year was when I got an offer. No acknowledgement whatsoever.

    If Mr.UCAS came up to me now and gave me the option of either continuing as I am now or a UCL offer but 4 rejections from the rest, I think I would take the latter.

    Why the impatience?! :p:

    It's still October; offers usually start flying in properly from November onwards.

    I am becoming increasingly disenchanted with school. Any interest I may have had has now left and I find it difficult to do any work at all. All I want is to go to university and do cool maths.

    I think my tutor sent them off, but I got needlessly worried and sent them off again in a separate email. Got a nice email back from admissions tutor:
    Did you send the details to the generic maths dept email id?

    I know what you mean. That said, there's nothing stopping you from doing cool maths? If you're on top of your A-Levels, just find some lecture notes and start work through them or something.

    Are you bored of STEP already? :p:

    I believe that's how it works. I can no longer substitute a course. Now things are real.
