    It's been 3 weeks since I sent off my application, and have still not heard from any of my 5 choices. Out of the 4 early applicants in my school, I'm the only one who still hasn't received an offer, whereas they are all rocking 3+ offers.

    I applied for chemical engineering at Cambridge, Imperial, Bath, Edinburgh and UCL, with predicted grades A*A*A*AA, so academic requirements shouldn't be a problem. Could it be because of the high number of engineering applicants, or should I be prepared for 5 rejections?

    You aren't smart enough for uni if you think that could possibly happen

    The universities have until May to reply to you and many don't start looking until after Jan 15th. My son got his Edinburgh offer on May 8th. You will need to be patient.

    You do realise those are some of the most competitive unis ever? They'll take ages. You're bound to get offers with your academic profile

    Not necessarily, everyone on TSR is spamming their offers on the Uni threads

    Yeah, because they've all applied for different courses at different unis. Timings are all relative.
