Ah, congratulations! And thank you! I'm definitely firming Glasgow when the rest of the universities get back to me. Is Glasgow your favourite too?

Sent my application off to Glasgow almost 3 weeks ago, had a confirmation email, but a bit worrying for me that all these offers are coming through so quickly, and nothing for me. Maybe the subject that I am hoping to study has not made any decisions yet though, so fingers crossed. Plus, I am a Mature Student too, applied to be admitted to 2nd year, so maybe that has something to do with it too. Fingers crossed anyhow. Congrats to all those with offers already though, well done!!

I do adore Glasgow but I'm confused , very torn between Glasgow and Edinburgh. I may not even get in to Edinburgh but I'm going to wait before I firm. I've also applied to Cambridge (no chance), St Andrews and Aberdeen (do not want to go at all). I'm very, very happy to get an unconditional from Glasgow, it's such a good uni!

Don't worry! It's probably because you're applying for second year admission. Not hearing anything yet doesn't mean they're going to reject you They might just have slightly different procedures for 2nd year admission/mature student admission. I wish you the best of luck though! x

If you're torn between the two then the best thing you can do is to research each extensively and weigh out the pros and cons. If you live in/near Scotland then it might be worth visiting both. Unfortunately I live in Cornwall so getting up to Scotland would be a trek and a half. Wow! Good unis though! I have a friend who is also applying to Cambridge but she doesn't think she has a chance either.. I didn't even want to risk applying haha, even though I do adore their English course.

Haha, I'm the same with Aberdeen! I applied because I like the course but after some extensive research I doubt I'll be putting it as my firm or insurance. x

Thank you. They actually contacted me on Wednesday afternoon to ask me to email them copies of my OU qualifications. So I emailed them straight back with the info they needed. So I take that as a good sign in a way. At least I know they are looking at it. And because they generally act quite quickly, I'm hopeful of hearing something next week.

Don't stop checking your email over the weekend either, I've heard unis give answers at the weekends too (I got my acknowledgement email at 5:30am, my ucas track at 6:45pm and the official glasgow email at 6am the next day) and do write at odd times. Good luck though! Where else have you applied and have you heard anything yet?

My school dont send our applications away until mid december! I really want to get it out of the way but at least it will save on the waiting game, cause I'm also torn between Glasgow and Edinburgh and I hear Edinburgh don't do their offers until February/March.

At least I'm not the only one checking my emails 24/7 paha..! I've also applied to Sheffield, Cardiff, Reading and Essex (don't really want to go there but better than not applying anywhere else haha!)

I m just wondering - all of you who got offers from Glasgow - what were your ASs and what are your predicted A2 grades? I m just trying to see what my chances of getting an offer are.

Hiya
My gcse grades werent that great so I thought that would knock me back but obviously they don't seem to look ( 1 A*, 3 A, 8 or 9 Bs and 2 Cs) and at AS I got ABBCD ( the C was in general studies and dropped the D) and I am now predicted AAB
What about you? What are you applying for x

Daughter got an offer (ABB) for Geography/Sociology last week, the day after applying!

Many people seem torn between Edinburgh and Glasgow. According to a relative of mine, who grew up in Edinburgh herself , there is a saying that 'A Glasgow funeral is more fun than an Edinburgh wedding!'
