Hello, I wonder if someone can answer this for me please?

If my DS applies now through UCAS for a normal course (not early admissions or anything) would his application be considered soon for a possible offer, or would it just wait until after the January deadline with all of them?

It really would depend on the university. Some will give offers soon and others would wait until January.

Every uni will be different. Some will hear back from all five unis within a couple of weeks. DD applied in October, her offers came back at roughly three, eight, thirteen, sixteen and twenty one weeks. Her last was from Durham who are known for a long wait, but her first two were from ones renouned for making offers in January (and she had hers much earlier and well before any of her friends).

Some consider as they come in , others in batches. Dd had all her offers by January this year.

Depends on the university. DS applied in November and had 4 of his offers by Xmas.

Thank you for the replies, really useful, I don't suppose anyone knows what they do at Hull University?

Each subject department handles their own admissions, so it varies by subject as well as by university.

chocolate DS is at Hull but he applied post A levels so got a quick unconditional offer. Not sure what it's like pre A levels but he didn't need an interview for his subject.

You can wait until April for offers. So one not getting back means nothing at this stage. Early closing hadn’t closed yet either.
