    Got an offer from Lancaster on Monday for Management, Politics and IR!!! So happy as it was my top choice - I don't really want to wait for the other uni's now😂 My offer was ABB - pretty good, but I did want an unconditional😢 Is it worth calling them to find out why I didn't get it?
    I was wondering about doing the same but didn’t want them to think I was bigheaded and desperate😂😂

    How is your Oxford app going? tbh I'm so stressed I'm considering just taking the Lancaster unconditional at this point!

    Ha! Me too!I managed just about to get my written work sent off in time, so now it's just a case of waiting to hear about an interview. Though I'm not sure I'm ready for the stress that will be interview preparation!
    What about you?

    Currently having second thoughts about Oxford bc I'm so stressed tbh. I also love the freedom of the degree at Lancaster, and also the money, I'll admit!

    Update: I emailed yesterday and got a response this morning. It said that the UCAS offers are submitted through the general application managers and then the applications are passed onto the departments admissions tutors afterwards and it’s them who decides who gets unconditionals subject to interview. The email said that the admissions tutors would get back to me within the next week on whether they’re offering me an interview or not. All is not lost! They just haven’t decided yet

    I assume we’re applying for different subjects and this is what my particular department said. It may be different for other departments. They are reviewing all applications as far as I am aware.

    Just had an interview letter come through (literal letter in the post) not sure if I’m going to be going though as I can’t make the dates as it will require an overnight stay.

    Just received a letter from Engineering at Lancaster inviting me for an interview to be "considered for an upgrade" to my offer - any other Engineering applicants receive a letter too? Not sure what to make of it ... is it common for this to happen? Thanks !
