I basically decided to create this thread to find out how people are feeling now that they have sent their UCAS applications off. I sent mine off yesterday to my school and they sent it off yesterday as well to the UCAS. I have applied to study Primary Education. I have recieved email confirmations from 3 out of my 4 universtites saying that they are now considering my application and will be in touch soon. This makes me feel kind of nurvous and scared but excited at the same time. It is weird to think the university admission tutors could be looking at my application right now or pretty soon, when I am just going about my ordinary life and waiting for them to offer me an offer.

How are other's feeling if they have just sent theirs off what advice would you give people? Good luck everyone!

Same, I hate waiting so it doesn't help really what have u applied for. I didn't know that track would be down till I read your comment then I looked at UCAS and it is from tomorrow until Monday; its so annoying cause I have just sent my UCAS off three days ago and they are taking it down.

Yeah its that sort of excited feeling that its gone so you don't have to keep on working on it anymore, but at the same time you have to wait for the universties to decided upon whether or not to give you an offer. I am scared too I have one interview so far, which I found out about today but they changed it last night. What have u applied for?

Not heard as in got an offer from, just an email confirmation saying that they have recieved my application and they are considering it, which is really scary but exciting at the same time. Have you recieved any more confimations. I have an offer for an interview now.

Feeling quite scared. Universities received it on Thursday morning and I now have 4/5 confirmation emails I know it sounds silly but I'm really anxious about it, like what if I get no offers because they don't like my AS grades or what if I put a qualification in wrong and get disqualified? Can't force myself to close my email inbox on my laptop in case I miss anything

Sent mine off this morning and am an entirely different sort of panicky now. At least there's nothing to do but wait, now. Which is a good thing, I suppose. Still...I am checking into ucas every half hour even though I know I'd get an email if something changed. Also, I'm an international applicant and I've heard it takes way longer till we get offers than it does for UK applicants. Anyone got any idea HOW much longer we're talking here? :/

good luck with your applications, everyone. Hope not everyone is as massively panicky as I am

I sent mine off the day before the first uber long track down three weeks ago and I got 2 offers within that time and I didn't know! They don't send out any track related emails while its down which is infuriating
On the plus side though last week it was supposed to be down Friday 6pm-Monday 8am but it was back up by midday Saturday!

When I first sent mine off it took three weeks for the school to attach my reference and send it to UCAS but once it was gone an eerie calmness came over me ahaha

Thats good where have u applied to and what for. I still only have three out of 4 confirmation emails and its not silly at all. Hopefully that won't be the case, good luck and stay positive.

Once its gone you feel totally different happy that its done but scared also that there is nothing else that you can do, as its all up to the unis now. I am not too sure how much it differs in time from an international applicant to a UK applicant, I guess it depends on what course and where. What are u applying for and what unis?

Thats quite annoying if u don't get emails when track is down, not that the emails help much as they just say something has changed but they don't tell you what really. Congrats on you offers where have u applied to and for what course? Good luck

I applied for English and Film studies at QMUL, RHUL, KCL, Brunel and Kingston. Would love to get into QMUL, ideally. But of course...I'd pretty much love to get in anywhere
