    Hi hi :-)

    I know that a couple of threads have already begun re applying for 2017 entry but I just wanted to ask if anybody had heard from any of the universities I've applied to yet.

    I applied two weeks ago today to Sussex, SOAS, UEA, Kings College London and Royal Holloway.

    So far I have received acknowledgements from all except SOAS which feels like a veryyyyy long time to be waiting for acknowledgements?! I applied last year and had received all of my acknowledgements within around 48 hours and within 3 weeks had offers from Chester, Liverpool, Birmingham and 2xDurham so this time round everything feels so much slower haha.

    I thought that responses may be quicker this year given that I already have my grades (AAAAa*) and I've applied for all AAB-ABB unis compared to last year where I was applying to courses with higher entry than I was even predicted. KCL emailed this morning asking for confirmation of my grades so I'm just about to send copies of my exam certificates - have any other post A Level applicants been asked to do this and if so, how long after this did you receive offers/rejections?

    So basically what I'm asking is whether anybody else has heard from the unis I have applied to, and if any other post A Level students applying to any university have found their waiting time particularly quicker/shorter than current students??

    Thanks!!! :-)

    Not all unis send acknowledgements, and those that do might not send them for all subjects. They don't mean anything so don't get upset if one doesn't arrive
