Hey guys!
I saw that there wasn't a specific threat for this, just thought that I might put this out there. Just to talk about application process or to share acceptances...

I applied on January 14th and still haven't gotten a reply. What about you guys?

Hey! Don't worry! I applied end of November and only got my offer last week. Scottish Univeristies are known for giving out their offers quite late, so I wouldn't get too nervous about not hearing yet. Especially if you applied to close to the deadline it may take a while, but no news isn't necessarily bad news. You'll have heard by May so don't worry!

Course: Computer Science
UK applicant
Predicted: AAA

Other uni's: Manchester - offer, Liverpool - offer, Bath - offer, St Andrews - not heard yet.

Congrats for your offer!! May I ask what date and hour exactly you received your offer? Did it come through track or mail? What are the conditions? Did you apply for BEng or BSc?

thanks

I got my offer on the 23rd of January at 5pm (uk time). I got it through UCAS track which I check every or every other night. Still haven't got my mailed offer yet so I wouldn't wait on that to tell you. For some of my other uni offers my mail offer only came a couple weeks after UCAS was updated, so just check through UCAS.

I've got a conditional offer of AAA for Computer Science BSci (G400)

In my experience, literally all of my offers were updated on UCAS in the afternoon / evening between 4pm and 9pm.

Got 3 offers (Edinburgh Napier, Robert Gordon, Abertay) and I feel like Aberdeen is going to give me an offer too.

But I've only ever cared about UoE, which I know is not very healthy because I'll always be comparing other unis to it.

In hindsight, I should've probably applied to Heriot Watt instead of Abertay, but back then I was expecting 0 offers.

Someone in the 2019 applicants thread mentioned that in last year's thread, people started posting that they got an offer around 16th of Feb (I checked myself and it's true).

Is Edinburgh better than Imperial for Computer Science?

Nope, Imperial is better, but I would like to have Edinburgh as insurance.

hei! congrats for your offer! may i ask what the conditions are?

Unfortunately, Edinburgh prioritizes the applicants that pay larger tuition fees(rest of UK and international).

The acceptance rate for scottish+EU status applicants is 20ish%(~1650:350).

The acceptance rate for rest of UK & international status applicants is 80ish%(~400: (>)300, ~600:500 respectively).

These figures can be checked on their website. They reffer to all the School of Informatics courses.

So, what is your status? It might tell us if Scots+EU have to wait longer than the others.

Hi, yeah, I'm a British applicant, so you're probably right that EU members have to wait longer. I think the general offer for Computer Science is AAA, including my own.
Congrats on your Imperial offer though, I doubt I'd hear a reply from Imperial and am quite gutted I didn't make it.
Best of luck,

There’s actually a legal cap on how many applicants uni’s can ‘prioritise’ based on the fact their international, so I wouldn’t worry too much. It’s made specifically for unis like Edinburgh and St Andrews etc from doing stuff like that. For computer science the acceptance rate for Uk students is definitely way lower than that! I read that for CS it’s 30% offer rate for UK, and 18% for EU and Scot. There’s still a difference but it’s not as bad as that.
