Well, I've gotten offers from UoSheffield, QUB, UoYork and UoLiverpool. Although UoManchester rejected me based on grades which I'm a bit miffed at, like hun you're not Oxbridge, get back in your box, you trick ass b***h!! (tbh I've over already like and I'm joking when I say all that lol, I'm not that highly strung). Is anyone going to the York offer holders day on 9th February 2019? and also the Sheffield offer holders day on Saturday 16th Februry 2019? I'm a Northern Ireland student so it's easier for me to go then.

Depends on the Uni - and how competitive your application is.
You may get an offer in a week, or you could have to wait until final offers are made in April - totally unpredictable.

I got a response with a conditional offer within the first 48 hours from Bath Spa Uni. It really just depends on each Uni and since they don't work over Xmas; we have after that and up 'til May for a response.

I’ve got responses from Lincoln and Sussex so far, it’s a shame that the ones I really want to go to haven’t replied yet 😂

Joint or Single Honours: Single

Universities you're applying to: So far Conditional offers from Exeter and Southampton (AAB) and Cardiff (ABB), also have applied to Birmingham and Warwick (haven't heard yet, but Warwick was my favourite). I applied on about december 10th (I think, or soon after)

A level grades: Predicted AAB
GCSE grades: 1A* 4A 5B
Are you left handed, right handed or ambidextrous? Left, but I can do most things (except write) with my right.

Update: A while ago I got an offer (ABB) for Birmingham. Just waiting on Warwick now!
