    I have a few questions and I thought I would combine them into one thread so I don't make loads of individual threads.
    These are regarding UCAS. I've applied to study Maths at Cambridge, Durham, Bath, Surrey and Bristol

    1). I got an acknowledgement e-mail from Bath but not any of the other Universities. UCAS says my application is still getting processed, is this normal?

    2). Bath say they are looking at my application, does this mean I will either get an offer or a rejection before January or is this the same case at every University?

    3). Which universities from my choices are known to reply before January?

    Some university departments acknowledge applications, others don't. It a pretty useless communication as you already know from the UCAS system that they have it.

    What Bath has sent you is essentially an acknowledgement; it tells you nothing about when you can expect a reply.

    Universities don't necessarily reply in similar timescales to all those who apply at the same time. Some departments send out obvious rejections and offers quite quickly, others don't. Often they will hang on to borderline applications while waiting to see what else comes in. Some wait until after 15 January.
