Hello,
I've applied to Aberdeen, Hull, Stirling, Cardiff and Plymouth and I'm wondering how long it'll take for them to respond. I've heard that a few of them respond quite quickly but I'm not sure exactly how long..

Any ideas?
Thanks

What course have you applied for? No one can say for definite but I would say that for many universities it takes up to 2-4 weeks

You'll get one in the first week or two of submitting.Then about 3 come flooding in around mid January.Your last one comes late around mid march until mid or late april.

Aberdeen: Zoology
Stirling: Marine Biology
Hull: Coastal Marine Biology
Plymouth: Marine Biology and Oceanography
Cardiff: Zoology

One of my friends was offered an interview after two days, but another had to wait 5 weeks for a response.

I'm just really impatient and don't know what to expect XD

No, last year I had all mine before Christmas. Mine this year went off on Monday, got 1 reply (rejection lol) within about 3 hours. Nothing else yet though. The rest could come before Christmas, in January, or none until the deadline! It all depends but I expect you'll have at least a couple back by the end of January, if not all of them

Cardiff will probably reject me because they might not accept my course. I'm doing a Level 3 City and Guilds Extended Diploma (so not a btec but is equivalent to three a-levels)
Literally like 7 universities actually accept it D:
