    I sent my UCAS form on 10th October.
    Recieved my welcome letter a week later.
    Going to be a while before I expect offers though- so few places for my course. Ah well.

    well i imagine being in Pakistan it could take a good while. it takes about a week to people within the UK so it could be about 3weeks to a month i'd imagine as you are so far.

    Well I gave them my fathers address in Saudi Arabia because I just moved here from Pakistan but that's not exactly any closer.
    So I guess I'll sit tight for a week more. I'm on a gap year so track would be a great past time

    lol you can alway ring ucas, and ask for ure tracking number i'm sure theyll give it to you as u are so far away. or you can sit back adn wait and when u get ure number you could have offers wating fro you which would be cool.

    Yeah, I'll wait another week and if still no letter then i'll call them up. I'm just being a little too impatient.
    Offers waiting! UCAS would probably e-mail me about them though but that would be great nonetheless.

    Anyways thanks.
