    How long does it take for offers to be made? I have applied for BSc Economics a month ago and still haven't heard from St Andrews. I'm so worried!

    Unfortunately, St Andrews really does take its time to hand out offers or rejections, especially to applicants paying no fees (Home and EU). So be prepared to wait until February ot March :/

    Where are u from?

    I applied on October 13th and got the offer on November 21st. It takes around a month to reach the decision i guess.

    Oh, this is now really worrying me. I have only just sent off my application, and it's still being processed by my college, which means it hasn't been officially sent off yet. I'm applying for philosophy and psychology. Anyone else applying for those courses? Anyone know the estimated time it takes to receive an offer? Thanks
    Hi. I've applied for Psychology (application received 16th November) and haven't heard anything from St. Andrews. Received offers s from all 4 of my other choices, but am yet to find a 'home' Psychology applicant who's heard!!

    I haven't heard from St. Andrews yet... I applied for CS around October 14th with 42 predicted IB score.

    Will St. Andrews give offers to International Students soon?

    English (kind of) applicant here. I applied on like the 14th of October and I've been on "pending decision" since the 13ths of November. I think I won't be hearing anything again until January-March. (I'm applying for philosophy too)
    Ah, that's not good. I would really like to hear a decision before then to decide whether I'm going to go for UCAS extra or something instead, as St. Andrews is my top choice.

    Ah same. I figured if i don't get in this year maybe i can try adjustment
    or just go to my second choice get a first like above 85% and then see if i can transfer.
    what do you want to use extra for?

    Awhh don't worry about it! I'm sure you'll hear soon I applied for straight History as I'm not quite sure which area I want to focus on completely, just yet.

    To be honest I wasn't expecting an offer either! I was eating my breakfast and just casually checked track, my eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw "3/5 decisions" rather than "2/5" haha.
    Heya! Sorry I am joining rather late, but what grades were you applying with? Sorry if that is a bit nosy.

    Haha no worries about it!

    We have fairly similar grades! I've heard that they are quite big on the personal statement being academic?

    If you look on the school of history website they say what they use to decide

    When did you apply?

    English lit was the bane of my life! I really enjoyed it but didn't finish the books until a matter of days before the exam :/

    I applied around the 22nd of October (not quite sure). My teachers thought my PS was good but I dunno!
    I had the worst teacher last year for EngLit, and my class is tiny, but it's alright this year!
    Where else did you apply?? 😀
