Why do I have no feedback from UCAS, 4 months after applying? watch

    I applied for undergrad courses through UCAS long before the October deadline. I was applying to Oxbridge so I also submitted all my other uni choices back then. Now it's almost March, and I have not heard anything from any uni except Oxford, which of course has an earlier deadline.
    I am starting to seriously freak out since I met a lot of other people who apply to the EXACT SAME courses at the EXACT SAME universities and pretty much all of them have already received offers. Funnily enough, all that I got so far is an offer from Oxford. As for the other unis, I am left with no information at all, but I have just got a rejection from UCL for 'failing to fulfill the entry criteria' - I double checked it all and there is no way that is true, as my grades are above the required ones and I submitted all the documents they asked for.
    I start to think that there is some big issue with my UCAS profile, but on the other hand, I find it surprising that I managed to get an Oxbridge offer without any problem. And all the other unis, although some are known for responding very quickly, have been silent for four months.
    Do you know if there is any reason why this happens? I never heard of anyone being in a similar situation and I'm worried that other unis will reject me for some stupid reason.

    Regarding ucl you could email them and ask for feedback as to what criteria you don’t meet, you could also email your other choices to ask whether there is any update or when you can expect to hear from them, did you receive acknowledgement emails from your other choices?

    I'm definitely going to email ucl. I never thought about contacting the other choices because I thought they would just ignore me, but it's probably worth a try considering the silence.
    And I did get acknowledgements from all the unis, but there was silence after that. I also know that one of my choices sent out emails requesting further info to other people from my school who applied there, but I wasn't even asked for that much.
    Contacting them seems the best option, but I'm already worried about their answer :/
