    That's a bit early isn't it? Looks like they were very keen on having you there!

    Do you still get offers before the deadline? Like if I sent it off this week would I get offers soon or would they wait until January deadline

    It depends on the department. Some start making offers immediately, others wait for the January deadline. I think it's more common to start making them earlier though, I got 4/5 offers before January.

    Earliest one was from Bristol about a month after I sent off my application.

    No, I have just started yr 12 and want to study economics at at either oxford, cambridge, LSE; other good RG unis! But I've got a friend in yr 13 and he is applying to warwick for maths and I've generally heard it's very good for maths! What uni did you end up going to then?

    Ah, I see. Warwick is very good for Econ as well, like one of the top unis. I'd consider it, if I were you.

    Ended up going to Cambridge for maths.
