So this cycle is coming to an end. The deadline for equal consideration is the 15th of January so I guess that most of you have already applied and that many of you have replies.

First off, to those who don't know what I'm talking about: UCAS is the program used in the UK for applying to Unis.

Well then UGers, where have you applied? When did you apply? For which course have you applied? Which replies have you had?

Discuss anything to do with UCAS and UK Unis here. You can talk about anything from predicted grades to the weather at your Uni's town.

Hopefully current students will be able to help applicants out.

A few rules/suggestions:

- Don't criticize people's choices.
- No Rival discussions (like Oxford vs. Cambridge)
- No Spam
- Do not post your PS (personal statement) or Reference here as it could be risky (UCAS has a plagiarism checker).


Here is my where I replied and what replies I have had:

Oxford (Christ Church) - History and politics: Rejection (I messed up the Exam)
St. Andrews - International Relations and History: Rejection (My PS didn't match the course)
Edinburgh - History and politics: Pending decision
York - History and politics: Offer
Glasgow: History and politics: Offer

Or UWE.

I might apply to Essex actually. Not through UCAS though. I don't think you apply for postgrad through UCAS.

I'll let you come and irritate me at Sheffield. Would it help if I mentioned that we have, as voted, the best pub in Britain for several years running?

That's where you're wrong Missy! There's a pub that has some of the oddest, yet best cider I've ever tasted there. There's also several pubs that have cherry beer that actually tastes like cherry on tap. And, into the bargain, there's my awesome company to be had too. I say that, you'd get there and I'd probably never, ever bump into you.

Oddly enough Sheffield is one of only two institutions in the country that teach computational linguistics at a postgrad level so maybe I would bump into you at some point

I think you'll find Bristol has the Best cider pub in the UK, so I'd suggest you just leave...

Good choice on Glasgow TS. I can't say how it is for History and Politics (though I know a 3rd year Politics student who seems to enjoy it) but it's a brilliant place to live. Choose Glasgow!


I currently prefer it to York but I shall only make my choice once I've seen both unis (or all 3 if Edinburgh make me an offer) on the open days.

The Kelham Island Tavern is still better overall. I say that, the Wellington and the Fat Cat are better than the Kelham Island Tavern. Also, cider makes me wee far too frequently so THERE!

I'll be doing all this next year when I have to apply for university. I've scouted around a bit now though to find places that interest me, and plymouth is looking awesome, both the student accomodation and the Business Studies course I want. Portsmouth and Hull also have quite similar courses to the one I want.

Just to avoid this being spam of me explaining my plans for next year, I'll add something: Good luck, hope you guys get into wherever you want to go.

I've never been down there, but the pictures of the uni campus, accomodation and surrounding areas seem decent enough. I've never saw Dawn of the dead, but have saw Shaun of the Dead, so basing it on that rather than Dawn of the Dead, if they have a pub as good as the Winchester, it'll be epic.

Edit: Ah well, if it ain't spam then alls good.

Haven't applied yet >_>.

I'm having problems getting a reference, seeing as my secondary education was in Spain, I don't have any teachers with a good enough level of Enlgish to write me a reference.

I'm not in a rush to go to university though, if I don't get it in time this year I'm not bothered.

I've got everything else written up and ready though, and the universities I'm hoping to apply to aren't the elite of the elite, so with the decent grades I have I might still stand a chance. Not too fussed though

Could you not get the references off them in Spanish, and translate it to English, then hand the original and translated in and have them double-check the translation to make sure everything fits?

Actually all (both) 10ers that I've seen have been respectable. You guys are already ahead of the 09ers in my book, good job


I have two offers so far and the rest I haven't heard from yet. I did put mine in quite late last year though.

Apparently I'm not allowed to modify anything in the reference, including the language. I'd have to get it officially translated, which probably would mean having to pay for it and may take a while anyway.

Also later applications are not considered as seriously, unless of course he is very qualified.

i know, i kept telling him to start writing but hes just left it. i had mine wrote and ready to send back in october annd i had to wait until the beginning of december for all my referencres to be sorted.
then again, our school babies the straight A students/oxbridge candidates and makes sure theyre all set before anyone else
