    Received offer today via UCAS track for History Politics and Economics at UCL but it was not showed up on the UCL portal.
    Is this just due to it not being updated yet or has Ucas made a mistake :P
    this sounds like a stupid question but in the heat of the moment I tend to be very pessimistic

    Mine came up on UCL portal a few days after it came up on UCAS track. As long as it is on track, I think it is fine.

    If it's on Track then there is nothing to worry about. Universities might take their time with updating online portals because they're processing a vast number of applications.

    Hello
    I Applied 12th Oct for Hist & Pol-Cambridge, LSE, Durham & Notts (offer)
    UCL is my joint 3rd choice w/ Durham. I would like an offer as Cambridge and LSE (1/2 choice) have low offer rates.

    I think UCL will reject me as:
    1. I didn't do Maths A-Level
    2. I had essentially no econ in my PS bar 1 short sentence

    The only thing that's giving me hope is that I have already achieved A*A*A* + EPQ A.


    Where are you applying?

    . I applied for PPE at Oxford, Gov and Econ at Lse, HPE at UCL, Bristol for Politics and Econ (reject)and Warwick for Pol,Econ and IR. I'm expecting mostly rejections as my PS was only catered for LSE lol. Where else are you applying, are you likely to firm the course at UCL?

    I think I applied around 6th October? So I applied earlier than you but I doubt there's any link between how long they take and whether they give you an offer so I wouldn't worry!

    As a general rule with your uni application one thing will update later than the other.

    Lol yeah Bristol was meant to be my backup as my school gets contextual offer so but they basically emailed me saying I should apply for a different course (management). Same to you, good luck with your application!

    Ummm I am not sure about UCL but defo taking it over the york offer I would be stupid not to. Oxford is a more of an aspirational application hence my first choice is Durham I think if I get an offer, purely based on the fact that it isn't in London and i want to get as far away from here as possible.

    I think Unis should be less harsh when looking at PS as they should understand that it is hard to pick the same courses everywhere in every uni. Good Luck with your offers though!!!!
