    Hi all,

    To anyone who is studying at Queen Mary, or are also applying, what has been your experiences with the four-week reply time?

    Does the university (especially for English), endeavor to reply within this time-frame; what is the likelihood of them replying for such a competitive course in this time?

    Did any of you hear back later than four weeks after receipt of your application?

    I am just curious as I know track is going down between 18:00 tonight until Monday 9th November, and my four week date is the 11th November.

    Also, is it likely that universities will still make decisions in this time? If so, would it update through the portal?

    Thank-you for all of your help!!

    Hey, I sent off my UCAS on Thursday morning and then got an email from QMUL saying they'll reply within four weeks but got my offer on the same day by the afternoon which I must admit was super quick. Some people I know even got offers in April so it varies really

    Yep - and I knew it was the last day they could possibly reply before christmas break. They kept me waiting until 8pm as well!

    My entry is deferred, so not studying yet That may have been the reason for the time I waited for the offer, in hindsight.

    Well done, congratulations!! I've applied for English (and generally have no idea if they still usually interview for English, or if anyone has received an interview/offer yet either), and have heard nothing! That's ok, thank you for replying haha!
