    I applied for Philosophy to Cambridge, Durham, St Andrews, Exeter and Nottingham. I have and unconditional offer from Nottingham and a conditional from Exeter, as well as an interview at Cambridge.

    Where have you applied (if you don't mind me asking!)?

    No, one of my universities never told me they had received it and then I got an offer within a few weeks. Don't worry, I panicked too because I'd had emails from the others

    I got an email from them a few weeks after I was given a conditional, saying that they put me in their high achievers programme and so if I put them as my firm the offer would be unconditional!

    Cambridge is exciting, but I must say, quite daunting!!

    Congrats on the offer from Bradford! Sussex is actually quite close to me, it's in a lovely part of the country. Law sounds exciting to, my uncle is actually a lawyer!

    I applied last year and I did it through UCAS undergraduate and UCAS conservatoires because I was also applying to music colleges. I can't remember which of the universities didn't email me but I'm music college now (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire). I hope you get your offers soon

    so far I already got one conditional offer but the rest of the universities I am applying to take months to reply.... So I have to wait for the rest I guess.

    It is! I'm loving it so far

    How do you know the others are going to take ages? Well done on getting an offer already though, that's great! Were you an early applicant or were you just super organised?

    Oh I see, yeah I can understand why that would feel late if everyone around you was already getting offers. And revising for your resits probably is important... How many are you doing? Good luck with them

    Yeah I do, I play cornet so I'm in the brass band we have 2 or 3 concerts this Christmas and I think one with the compulsory first year choir

    Oh that's not too bad, I'd hate to have a lot to revise for while still trying to learn stuff for this year!
