I got put on hold for my Bristol application for Philosophy and French Watch
Or maybe there's something else they need to investigate, or they're considering changes to or cancelling the course and are putting you on hold until they've decided?
I got an email today from Bristol uni saying they've put me on hold. Does this mean I'm not good enough for them to offer me a place immediately?
On the plus side, they haven't rejected you!
From seeing all the others on hold I'd think that maybe they gave away too many offers too early in the cycle last year and therefore have decided to generally put more candidates on hold this year.
I may ask why I'm on hold if a fair bit of time passes with no change, but after seeing this thread I'm far less worried/confused about the entire ordeal as it seems it's not just me.
My friend who applied for Psychology has an offer.
I wonder what proportion of CompSci applicants are on hold. :/
I also got on hold for MEng CompSci just this morning, with my predicted at A*A*A*, I'm pretty sure it's due to the volume of applicants applying and so they want to wait for the January deadline before making their final decisions. At least hope so, the way they worded it seems like there were far better applicants who get their offers already and we're put on hold. Guess we just have to be patient.
