It is such agony waiting for the letters. From previous experience, does any one know whether an offer is sent in an A4/Manila Envelope? Does a slim envelope mean bad news?

Thanks!

Offers we had & some friends who were not so fortunate;

Good news = A4 envelope
Bad news = small envelope (including rejection & Waiting list)

Seems like universal rule so far -- Good Luck!

Yes, agree with this. We'll be hoping for big envelopes on 22nd Feb! I think a small one almost certainly means bad news.

Experience last year from three independent schools -

1 large A4 size, 2 small...all of which were offers including an unexpected scholarship offer in the small envelope. So all I can say to all those waiting, my thoughts are with you over the coming days till next Friday. Good Luck!

We applied to two independents and received an offer from both. One (Rugby) was a thick A4 envelope. The other (Warwick) was a thin small envelope. I hope this helps.

We have been through this twice now - we have found that its not down to size of envelope but thickness of the envelope. On the whole the thicker the envelope the better the news !!!

This time next week we will all be looking out for the postman! I don't know if I can stand another week!
My son will be here when letter comes cos it's half-term so won't have time to compose myself. Ah well what will be will be-nothing we can do about it now. Think positive!
At least the bags under my eyes may start to subside! Anyone else forgotten what sleep is?

We were waiting for our envelope for two weeks, our current headmaster had asked several times as he had the sign writer in for the scholarship board at school. When the thick envelope arrived I guessed we had an offer, it still took a few minutes to open as my hands were shaking and then reading it was also difficult. The whooping from my son confirmed the thickness of the envelope. Good luck next week.
