    Ohhh nooo! But how come some people can do it with their ucas numbers? It's a bit unfair... I hope they are like "Yeah, sorry to all of you guys who couldn't apply, to make it up to you we have built a special new place for you all to live" and it is awesome!

    Maybe try and re-apply next monday and see what happens? Surely if it worked we'd get a message saying that they already have an application from us? Better safe than sorry i guess :erm:

    Not happy about this whole situation. At the end of the day we are all guaranteed a place, but they tell you to get in quick to get your first choice and it seems for a lot of people this isn't possible for various reasons: haven't received the applicant packs in the post, the UCAS ID isn't working when the website says you can use this to apply and they wont give out the Student ID over the phone despite doing so earlier. This obviously makes it impossible for people to get their first choice even if they are first to try and apply.

    From the moment I applied to the uni I have been impressed with Aberdeen's communications. Now I have accepted them as my firm choice they don't seem to care about me anymore.

    Edit: Just read the comments above and seen the updated apply page. Time to phone and ask whats going on.

    If anyone who has already applied finds out what's happening with your applications or whether or not we have to apply again, could they let the rest of us know? Thanks

    Ok, took a while but got through to a friendly lady. They said that they have stopped taking applications because they are having problems with their new systems. I don't believe this personally - I think they have realised there are big problems and have stopped taking any more applications. I told her I was concerned about having not received the pack and she said I should get it by the time they reopen the accommodation application site. She said those packs were still being processed and had not all been posted.

    I think it would have been better if they had maybe sent all the packs out as and when people accepted their offer. That way they can then go ahead and open for applications in the knowledge that everyone should have the pack and the ability to apply. Instead of taking applications when they know fine well not everyone can apply.

    I shouldn't be getting so worked up about this when I have exams to think about!

    Does this mean that you won't have to re-apply when they open it up again?

    Nope, just an automated email saying they recieved my first email enquiring about what has happend.

    Tbh it looks like not many people were able to get through, so the uni may just re start applications.

    They just replied to my e-mail:

    Hi Jennifer

    I refer to your e-mail and write to advise you that your original form will be held on file, you won’t have to apply again.
