Yeah Uppsala updated, I have an AU merit rating 180 out of 285- hoping that this will get me into the program

My Uppsala applications are still in progress. Which programs have you choosen? (At least the area, isn't it IT by any chance?)

I chose one of the business programs, but I'm not sure how they categorize students. I applied super early though.

But i have read somewhere that the number of credits taken is accounted for in calculating the merit rating

I applied on 16th Oct. They have sent a message (on 19th) via university admission page asking for a program specific document (which was already there) though. And after I've reached them, they confirmed that everything is ok to be reviewed (on 20th). So I guess I was early too.
Most probably different faculties calculate applications with a different speed. May be business teams have less applicants or just more people to do the review...

I guess that depends on a university and program. But many programs seem to give a default 180 points first for anybody who has at least 3 years of bachelor studies. If you have more - this may (or not) be reflected when your application will be reviewed once more, along with possible bonuses for other documentation you have provided them.
A lot of applicants from previous years got 180 points on their first update. Some has contacted their universities (you can do this by reaching program coordinator) and were told that their system assigns 180 points by default to any international applicant with sufficient education.

Although it's not my first choice, Uppsala hasn't updated for me either.
