I imagine you'll hear back from them pretty soon. Try emailing them. I had my interview in November and received a letter about my offer three days after. I got AAAA at AS and my offer is AAA for UCL. I know someone who got AAAD at AS and has an offer to study Chemistry at UCL too so provided your interview went well I doubt there's anything to worry about.

This person you know wouldn't also have an offer of AAA from Imperial would they?

I had mine in November, got an offer 4 days after. Mine is unconditional.

I believe they do have an offer from Imperial. Your offer from UCL is unconditional? Have you already completed your Alevels?

Not a clue, sorry. I hardly use this website. By "know" I really meant someone I briefly met from another school.

I haven't got an offer from UCL yet but I phoned them up today and they told me that they will let me know by the end of the week. If UCL give me and offer I will 100% go for them. If not, I will firm Imperial or Durham

is your durham offer A*AA? I'm taking it as A*AA

so if you firm Durham, will your insurance be imperial or manchester? given manchester say they will allow you even with ABB.

are you doing further maths btw?

Why do you prefer UCL over Imperial and Durham? Just wondering. I have offers from those three but no clue which one to firm.

S'cool brah, but seriously would you firm UCL over Durham/ICL and that being for Chemistry??

What would you consider about UCL that the other 2 don't have?

you should deffo go for Imperial Durham, if they have different offers, then put them as firm and insurance. They are simply outstanding when it comes to Chemistry, so you should push for the best

UCL, I feel, is a much more sociable place than Imperial (I want to study in London) so I would firm UCL if I got an offer. If UCL didn't give me an offer I'd have to decide between Imperial and Durham and I'd probably go for Durham because it's not Imperial (which in my opinion is not a place where I'd like to spend 3 years of my 'enjoyable' life at; it's not as sociable, sports and societies are better attended at Durham and UCL)

Durham is A*AA, Imperial is AAA and I'm hoping UCL will be AAB. Not that I strive for AAB but because it's just nicer to look at and think 'Yeah, I'm definitely going to UCL'

Yeah I did say that, I remember it vividly. The reasons for my change of thought is because firstly, I consider myself to be extremely sociable and I don't think people at Imperial will socialise with me to the extent that I wish to. I know this can be quite superficial, but there is definitely some truth to the things people say about Imperial. In fact, comparing my interviews at UCL and Imperial there was a stark difference in the atmosphere; UCL just seemed so much more friendly and people seemed to converse very easily but it was completely opposite at Imperial.

Secondly, UCL offer the Erasmus scheme that Imperial don't which I am quite interested in. Also, Imperial don't offer Natural Sciences which I might switch to at UCL so I can do a bit of Computer Science along with Maths and Chemistry

I'm a 2nd year UCL chemist and I remember that it was quite some time after my interview until I heard anything.
Do you mind if I ask what your predicted grades were at the time of applying? Also how did you feel your interview went and what were you GCSE's like? Sorry for all the questions but I couldn't help :P
