Not usually very long but you are applying at the time most students apply so there will probably be a delay.

Aberystwyth, Portsmouth. Waiting on Cardiff and Bath. Probably will go to Aberystwyth tbh. They've all so far given me pretty good alternative offers pretty much so far. I am kinda expecting to get rejected from Bath and don't want to go anyway : too posh and idk the uni doesn't offer the best course in my opinion plus its expensive and i think i'd be miserable there even though people are like you're insane its bath. But i think they'd have an issue with my grades somehow even though i have done 'work' for them. Idk Cardiff is probably not for me and Aber seems to provide a better course and location etc...

Aber gave me BCC which idk means that me getting in definitely won't be affected by the whole corona/teacher assessed grades thing and i was a little surprised as my predicted grades are ABB so they didn't have to. Well obviously i dont know what 100% but i should have enough evidence to prove i am definitely above those grades and hopefully won't flunk those mini exams if we sit them.

I am definitely happy that i applied to the options i did so thanks you replied to all of my threads its insane and gave me some really solid advice so thank you.

I’m thinking either Durham or Swansea atm, unless bath offer me which I don’t think they will lol. It feels almost impossible to make the right decision when we are not allowed to visit!

Definitely i keep thinking one thing and then having second thoughts. Its just so hard. I also can't really tell what its like from some selected pictures and ofc everyone that goes to these unis are mostly happy because they chose the uni thats right for them (hopefully). I think we are just going to have to make a guess and hope we've made the right choice when we turn up. I cant believe we are probably not likely to see our unis until we move in. A lot of people visit the unis twice just to make sure and we can't even visit once!

The situation in Wales is that the virus numbers are dropping hugely week on week. By March we will be down to very little hopefully. You may well get letters from Swansea, Cardiff and Aber to go on visit days in March/ April. Even if you dont there is nothing to stop you visiting the place and campus to have a look. Ceredigion the county Aber is based has the lowest amount of the virus in the UK outside remote Scottish Islands. You dont have to make your decision until June and there is no benefit of making decisions now. Hopefully you will be able to visit before then.

I have just looked at the new figures out today. Aberystwyth North and Aberystwyth South have had 3 new cases each for the last 7 days and that is less than 1 new case per day over all Aberystwyth. The areas around Singleton Campus shows Brynmill with 6, Uplands 7 and Sketty 3 new cases in the last 7 days. Just over 2 cases per day. The Welsh, Aber and Swansea figures are dropping. Parts of Swansea are higher but they arent around the campus but even those arent particularly high. The figures are dropping slowly and are likely to have dropped considerably by the beginning of March and it is highly likely univesities will have visit days in March/ April.The Welsh figures are higher due to the cases in North East Wales.Flintshire and Wrexham are the only area of Wales with a current rate of over 150 new cases per 100000 residents in the 7 days to 28 January
