    no way!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i don't think i can bear that wait. What course did you apply for and whats your background? I think a lot of it is to do with the departments. Some are really organised and well staffed so will get back to you very quickly.

    depends on the subject though. I heard in 10 days last year. In general I think UCL is fairly quick in comparison to say Cambridge.

    I guess, but I heard from Edinburgh in 10 days for the same subject.
    It probably is a luck of the draw

    I trump both of you, I heard from sheffield in 4 days without one referee submitting anything. For structural engineering(sheffield is one of the best in the country for civil/structures). lol. Doesn't look like its going to be the same response from UCL. Heres hoping that the engineering department is better than others.

    If I remember correctly, my referees were only able to submit their references after I submitted my application. A quick look at my submission from last year and it was written

    "Thank you for submitting an application to study at UCL. Your application is currently being held until we have received uploaded references from your named referees...."
    Thank you for the info.

    Does anyone know how strict they are in terms of meeting the conditions of the offer? Like if you miss the conditions by a minimum?

    After Application Complete mine changed to "Currently being processed by Admissions". The course tutor will have already made a decision then and it is only up to the central admissions office to approve of or decline that decision (it took 2 days for me)
