    Woah that's quick! Did he get acknowledgement emails from all of the other ones? I'm hopefully sending mine off next week. Just need to get my teacher to write my reference.

    Let me know when you hear back from Nottingham! Nottingham is one of my options too and I've heard they're slow as hell.

    Wow!!! That is super fast. I checked last year's thread, and I want to say the first offer was Oct. 2. Congrats to your friend! My daughter applied to Newcastle--got her application in 2 weeks ago. Nail biting begins!

    Archaeology! I'm not going to tell her the offers are starting. No reason for two of us to be anxious, LOL.

    Should be applying soon

    12th October is my personal deadline, just want to finish my personal statement and make sure that I know my predictions will match the courses (as I don't know if I'll be predicted an A*).

    Currently planning an essay that I'm hoping will be an A and convince my teacher to predict me an A

    Almost finished my personal statement, then I can apply pretty much whenever.

    I'm considering Queen Mary for compsci but my predictions are BBB (1 grade below their requirements). Although I've heard people have received offers with these predictions, what factors would affect the likelihood of me getting an offer?

    What would be a good fifth option if I'm applying for Economics at LSE, UCL, Warwick and Bristol?

    Swansea? That's like a last resort kind of uni for Econ because they ask for like BBB, Or you could do Reading or Exeter?

    GOSH! You're all so prepared and I'm only on my second draft of my PS (which is somehow way longer than my first), but I'm getting my teacher to check it over for the first time tomorrow.

    Ideally, I'd like my application to be away before the middle of October (since I'm still going to Open Days), but I feel like it's gonna keep me waiting in suspense for so long especially since Law is notorious for taking ages in offering places (but I know Leeds does it as they come in, rather than waiting until the January deadline)

    I feel like I'm in a pretty safe position, my UCAS predictions are 3 A's and I've had so much experience to write about in my PS so I hope that's enough - the only issue is my LNAT for Bristol and I don't find out my score until February

    Good luck everyone!!X

    Haven't applied yet. I'll probably send off my application in two weeks. Should be applying to Oxford,KCL, Manchester, Bristol, and either UCL or Liverpool.
    Im applying for Oxford, KCL and Bristol for law too! What have you been predicted? Do you think A*AA will actually get a place at KCL?

    I'm predicted A*AA, and yes! King's standard offer is A*AA, and if your PS and LNAT are strong then there's no reason why an A*AA PG would disadvantage you
