Is there anyone else who is still waiting for an offer (or rejection lmao) from their chosen unis?
In that case, where did yall apply to and when? And are you doing A-levels or something else?
I'm currently doing the IB and my predicted score is 40/45. I applied to Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow and King's College London for international relations (but some of the courses were joint with either history or law). I'm also an EU applicant from Finland, so there's that.
I know there's nothing to worry about and that unis have until May to respond, but it's still annoying when all your friends hear from their courses and you're still staring at that "There have been no recent updates to your application" thing on Track.
Yeah... Btw, what subjects are you doing in IB? Are you anxious about finals already? I'm a bit of a pessimist so I'm worried I won't get the grades that my teachers have predicted me and that I'll end up with like 30 and won't get into any of the unis I applied to haha.
My subjects are:
HL history, Swedish lit, English lang/lit
SL math, biology and economics
I have HL chemistry, biology and French B, SL maths, English A and ITGS
On one hand I am very nervous and dreading the upcoming exams, but on the other hand, I am also waiting for them so that the IB would finally be over and I would be at peace - I really just want to experience the feeling that I don't have anything to do. And about the final score, I kind of know I won't get my predicted score (it would be really cool tho) but I am worried about being disappointed in myself.
Are you applying to any other unis as well besides UK?
I believe it takes Scottish universities a long time to process EU applications for some reason, so it's completely normal if you don't hear back for a few months.
My family member has 4 offers from top unis (one is Oxford) but has not heard from the 5th one. Some of them are really taking long, even if the application is a strong one.
I've had offers to do medical/biomedical sciences from Exeter, Newcastle, Leeds and Bristol, they all came in within a few weeks, but been waiting for Northumbria for 3 months now!
I'm still waiting too! I have applied to study primary education in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde and Stirling and I haven't heard back from any of them. This is so stressful, I check my emails every five minutes!
I'm 20 and in my first year of uni in the Netherlands. I have a European Baccalaureate with 85% (typical offer range for Edinburgh and Glasgow) so in theory it should be fine, but primary education is super competitive and I heard that some Scottish unis choose Scots over EU students. I also heard that students who are already enrolled in a uni have fewer chances of getting in because they prioritize first-time students. Hope that's not true!
I went through the application process alone, so I don't know if my personal statement is worth something or if it's complete crap, and I don't know if my reference is any good either! Sooo stressful.
