It really depends on the subject... Theology for example I got 6 offers and i think thats quite good considering i ruled out London, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland... and i couldn't apply to Oxford (not that i would *spits*)

what are the best 10 ish universities in the country?

yip. They clearly didn't want me. They asked me a question about the business side of vet med and when I answered, very crossly told me that

"that may be the case in Scotland, but really, you have to stop thinking about such limited examples and realise what the modern veterinary world is like down here."

em... **** off.

I know the feeling! Waiting is so annoying, and with your grades, unusual I would have thought - what have you applied for? & - why don't you ring them? (p'raps not with the '5As dammit' comment tho :p: ) Seriously though, if you don't hear in the next few days, ring them! I rang up one of my choices that I was still waiting to hear from, and they can check where you are on their personal files as long as you have your UCAS number handy from your track letter. They were quite helpful - couldn't tell me there and then, but did tell me how much longer I'd be waiting, which made it a little bit easier. Might not be the case with yours but it can't hurt to try.

My friend's Cousin's Friend, got rejected in all uni apart from one: Oxford. Well my friend told me that they rejected him because they knew he would be accepted by Oxford. Weird....

although tutors may not know whether he applied to oxford or not, they can often spot that the personal statement is more academic, and by the high A grades achieved. e.g. 5A's.
