I’ve seen people who sent in their applications on similar courses to me get offers sooner than me despite sending their applications off later than me (i want to do politics and sociology and people have got offers for politics + other things) and I was just wondering if there was any kind of order to when unis give offers ?

It completely depends on the uni and the course, and to be honest even if someone has an offer for exactly the same course at exactly the same uni as you it wouldn't necessarily mean bad news for you - best just to kind of try and "forget" about Track, since it could literally be months for some offers to come in, and just check your emails every now and again.

Whilst some courses might start with offers to the very strongest applicants, there’s actually loads of reasons that decisions could be returned in what looks like an unusual order. Unless you’ve received a decision, there’s no point reading anything into it.

Eg. Many people might be reviewing applications to one course. Someone might go on holiday or be ill unexpectedly. Or an app might go on hold as someone might need to refer something to a colleague.

Whenever you get your offers it'll still be good - just remember that it isnt a race.
Things really gear up after Christmas, and that is when the vast majority of offers are made,
