    I'm still waiting too... Telling myself no news is good news!

    Can't help but check UCAS every hour though!

    Good luck

    Hang in there! The universities have until May to respond and you will usually find a couple get back to you relatively early! I check track all the time I am a resit applicant and the last offer I got was on the 22nd December for law from Sheffield. Which courses are you applying for?

    Cool! I'm applying to study law at Birmingham Sheffield Liverpool Leicester and Manchester and have already got an offer from Sheffield which is my second choice so I am happy at that and it's put my mind at rest a lot because I was nowhere near the grades they usually ask for in predictions and thought I might get rejected straight away.
