    I sent off my university application on January 14 and UCAS received it the next day on the 15th. So far, four out of five of the universities have replied, three accepted, one rejection. The final one is the University of Essex and they're literally taking so long to reply, it's actually killing me. I want to make my decision already, I already know which uni I want to go to. Does anyone have an idea of why they might be taking so long?

    Because they have a load of applications and have till May to respond?

    Unfortunately, the university receives a lot of applications, and it takes a while to go through them all. If the deadline isn't until May then they might not get back to you until May unfortunately, but that shouldn't hinder your chances for getting into the university you want!

    I applied for Essex in mid December and recieved an email a few days later which invited me to an interview (Despite my **** grades (C,D,E))

    It wasn't until my interview was cancelled a few days ago because of the strikes going on atm that they actually offered me a conditional via UCAS. So I think they will offer an interview before giving you a UCAS offer.

    I've applied for PPE at Essex and had an interview in February, I think they interview for most subjects. I guess you'll have been invited to an interview or applicant day, by now as I'm replying quite late.
    May I ask if you've had an offer or rejection yet? They said I'd have a response within two weeks of the interview but it's been nigh on ten weeks and I've heard nothing. I emailed them and they said they'd processed my offer, but their own application portal says it's still with admissions staff.

    Out of the five universities 2 accepted (York & Kent) and 2 rejected (Aberdeen & Dundee) with Essex yet to reply. The due date for universitiies to respond when applied before the 15th January is today!!! I'll try to contact my admissions adviser again but I've no luck until now...
