I have applied to multiple universities (around 10) for September/October intake and have only got response from 1 university, which was my safe choice. Its been 2 weeks. I am very very anxious. I keep refreshing my email every 1 hour. Now I am worried because what if I keep waiting and I get rejected from all other universities. How long should I wait? I heard that uk is pretty chill and offers admission very quickly. I applied for Masters in Data Science.

I scored a band 8 for Ielts.
Expect to wait a lot longer than two weeks, its peak undergrad exam marking time right now so MSc applications will not be a priority. Also they don't typically get reviewed as they come in, it's easier to let the pile build up a bit so you have enough to make it worth convening a committee meeting to discuss them.

As above, Masters applications are bit like the wild west and can take months to get back to you.

They'll be conscious that you need to hear back in good time though.
