I think UCAS gives the universities too much freedom to keep applicants waiting.
I applied in December and still haven't received a reply from one of my choices.
If they don't reply until May, or don't reply at all and UCAS automatically makes it unsuccessful, then it will be almost six months they kept me waiting.
In my opinion to keep an applicant waiting 5-6 months for a decision is simply not on.
In my opinion the UCAS RECOMMENDED deadline of 31st of March should be the official deadline for on-time applicants. November to March is more than enough time for universities to make their decision.
I got rejected from my other choices because I applied to quite optimistic choices, so I am losing time that I could be using to apply through UCAS Extra rather than waiting months for a decision which will probably be a rejection anyway!
Should universities be forced to respond quicker? Watch

I fully understand your feeling. I applied in the early December and finally got all decisions back in the late of March with two rejections and three offers. Which universities that you've applied for ?
