    Hey Guys, thought I'd start this off. It's a small life line, but people have been known to get offers who have been on the reserve list before. So anyone else in the same boat?

    ^Indeed. I wonder when will know by? If last years thread was anything to go by people started knowing from the beginning of May, but obviously its a bit different this year.

    I'm on it too. I did phone them to ask out of curiousity how many people were on it. They responded along the lines of: I am sorry, but I cannot discuss the reserve list at this time as it is strictly confidential. Looks like waiting and masters applications are in order.

    Yep but from what I gather soton dont really have a list as such but if people phone up on a-level results day there may be places if people who got offers didnt meet the conditions. I also think that its more likely to be a place for the 5year course too as thats what happened to someone I know.

    I wish degree results would hurry up as I think thats when we're likely to hear!

    Hey. I have a dilemma, I have a place on another course and the deadline is coming up for me making a decision. I'm really confused as to what to do!! If i accept the place does it affect my place on the waiting list, argh the pain!!!

    ^If its Via UCAS I think Swansea have a way in which they contact UCAS directly in case something like that happens (i.e. you get an offer). That and the waiting list is a long shot, but you never know.

    Can't believe people are still waiting to find out whether they have a place. How many people are on the waiting list?

    Not sure - they are being very cagey about telling us anything! Very frustrating! I guess it could be any point up until the course actually starts to know for sure?

    Just found out this weekend that I'm on the reserves too! For some reason they delivered the letter to my London address, so even though it was dated april 29th I only just got it. (Odd as my interview invite was sent to my Cardiff one but anyhoo...).

    For nearly 2 months I've been thinking that it was all over (got my "unsuccessful" on ucas early april) and now I have a second chance, yay!

    Fingers Xed.

    I guess we should may'be here something after degree results are released? Hasn't the deadline for confirming the offer on UCAS passed?

    Someone mentioned a few posts back about it being June 7th for some people. Personally I didn't even know there was one, just sticking to the "sit and wait" option. But yes, degree result time is probably the best bet. End of June/beginning of July ish. I never thought I'd see the day where I'd be hoping for people to fail their degrees... =]

    According to my ucas track it says starts 27th Sept (didn't think to look at that last night lol). Hopefully this is the case, cos I'm planning a trip to Amsterdam for the 22nd Sept.

    term begins 31st August, so if you haven't yet booked, I'd advise against sorting out a holiday in September!
