    Wow, that's really fast. Congratulations on getting the offers. My tutor submitted mine this evening, so I'm going to be compulsively checking my email every 5 minutes until I hear back from the universities.

    I submitted mine today, just waiting on the college to do references etc and send it off now... not very confident about offers etc, mostly just because I've been looking into how competitive it is to get onto the history courses at universities.
    For example, Chester is one of my choices but last year they had 800 applicants for 90 places :/
    Just hope I get an offer from MMU or Leicester!

    That sounds a lot, but remember most people make 5 choices on their UCAS form, so it's not going to everyone's first choice. If the numbers are evenly distributed, it could be more like 160 serious applications for 90 places.

    I'm applying to do Criminology and I've had 4 offers already! I was really surprised how quickly I heard back. I've had offers from Aberystwyth, BCU, Gloucestershire and UWE. Just waiting to hear back from Coventry now.

    I submitted mine for adult nursing 5 days ago and I'm still waiting for my tutor to finish her reference! Someone on my course has just received a rejection from Leeds though

    Mine was sent on Wednesday evening, haven't had any offers yet. How long does it generally take...? I can't bear waiting hahaha Really worried about mine because I took A Levels 5 years ago and did horrendeously, and had to put my grades on my UCAS. My tutor tells me not to worry too much about it but I'm still freaking out

    How long did it take for your college to give you a reference? I sent mine on Thursday.

    It totally varies between each university, so try not to worry too much. I was scared as hell, I just generally was a lazy kid who couldn't be bothered, literally got 3 GCSE's and then went on to do a BTEC nat dip, which I screwed up as well, so now really is like my second chance. Best of luck, I am sure your offers will start to come through soon.

    Same as me... the highest I got was a C in Drama... I literally just didn't go in for my exams because I thought having a job at 16 was more important :/

    No offers yet but only sent it end of last week.

    Not overly hopeful as one of our tutors is very odd with his marking of our assignments and he was really lazy in doing our UCAS reference too.

    Fingers crossed
