    I applied last Friday (9th Jan), so it's not been that long but the wait is killing me.. I can't do any work, sleep or eat properly.. And whenever I get an email, my heart stops. I check track every hour and I feel sick just thinking about ucas I know it's ridiculous cause there's nothing I can do but wait, but I don't know how to stay calm? Besides everyone from my school pretty much all have their offers cause they applied earlier than me so I feel so alone in this haha.. How do you guys deal with waiting for replies?

    I sent mine in on the 19th of November and I'm in the same boat as you... nothing yet.

    It's natural to feel nervous/impatient about such a big thing. Just try and focus on other things- such as work or exams/revising and before you know it you'll get that email through!

    Getting rejections is worse than waiting.
