    Hi,
    So I keep reading that a very high number of people have already got their acceptance/refusal response from their university choices.
    I applied on the same day as the deadline, but still on time. I'm a EU student btw.

    I am accepted in Cardiff and Bristol (conditional and unconditional)
    Still waiting for Royal Holloway, Leeds, and Lancaster.

    Would you suggest that I send an e-mail to these 3 universities? For example, asking how my application is doing, insisting that I want to join their university, giving them some required documents like my IELTS score to get the thing going ? Would this help? Or should I rather just wait?

    Thank you!

    Universities have until May to respond, it is really a waiting game. You have not been forgotten. No news does not mean bad news.
