Hi! Don't worry, I applied for Theoretical Physics there back in October and I still haven't heard back from them, I don't think anyone has!

I've not heard back from them either, they're pretty popular (I think) so I guess they take their time giving offers to applicants.

I think the majority of people whether you're getting a rejection or an offer hear back from UCL in March. A lot of people from past years have said that they didn't get offers until then.

UCL is a very popular university with it being in London and all, and I guess they have a lot of people to sort through and think about so the process of deciding who to give offers to will take longer for them than it will for other uni's but just because they're taking their time to get back to you (and me and lots of other people too) doesn't necessarily mean that you are going to get a rejection.

Someone on the stalking page has an offer. I'm pretty sure a few other people have too.

Have any of you had open day invitations? I heard rumors that it's basically an offer, reckon that's true? Also I can't login to my portal, did we have to fill out a questionaire for Theoretical physics or was that just for other subjects?

Just try not to stress, they have your application and sooner or later they will have to give you a reply to it. (:

UCL get over 900 applicants for physics (according to the website) so its a lot of people to consider~

I'm sure you'll be fine, good luck with your application!!

Haha, I think it's a way to get a better general idea of your chances
It is a nice indication of how little I have appeared to have done in life compared to other people my age.

I mean one person went to summer school in America to two universities?!!?? and another has 5 Sci-Fi books published!!???

I've just received an offer for Theoretical Physics, AAB! I think they're sending out a lot now, my friend got an offer for straight Physics last week and another got rejected yesterday as well. So I'm guessing people are going to hear back pretty soon!
I've only had it updated on UCAS track and not received any email from UCL yet, although it was only about 5 minutes ago so they may send one soon. My friend who got the offer for straight Physics had that thing where he was invited up to UCL for a sort of open day/interview and they'd only officially give him the offer once he had been, although because we live pretty far away you have the option not to go and still get an offer. I'm guessing that doesn't apply to Theoretical Physicists though, maybe there's less to show us as we are the ones who don't like lab haha!

Good luck to all of you!

I received my offer for Theoretical Physics (AAB) at the beginning of December. When did you all submit your applications?
I was invited to a visit day too (sneaky interview name!) but I said I couldn't come and they were fine with it

Sent away my ucas application on the 14th of January and received my offer a few days ago (AAB at Advanced Higher), quite excited tbh (scottish applicant), I didn't get an interview or open day thing either, so does anyone know if we get invited for open day to look about, like offer holder day or anything?

Well done to those who have offers!

UCL have been in contact with my college asking for some information (my circumstances are a little different) so at least I know I haven't been forgotten haha!

I sent off my application late November, and they got back to me on 13th Jan. I had to attend an open day two weeks ago, but they finally got back to me today with an AAB offer for MPhys Physics. I wouldn't worry as it seems all the London Unis take their time (still haven't heard from Kings and Imperial took slightly longer than UCL). Good luck to you all!
