    I do English at Bristol if anybody has any questions?

    When I applied they said they wouldn't give out any offers until after the application deadline (Jan 15th). I think I heard back that day, but others heard back later, so don't give-up hope if you're yet to hear.

    I got an offer for English Lit yesterday - the conditions are AAA including A in English Lit. I guess they started yesterday as it's the deadline today. I sent off my application really early so they might just be working up from the bottom of the pile
    Oh my gosh! CONGRATULATIONS!

    If you don't mind me asking, what are your GCSEs like? Are they really important for getting an offer do you think? Thanks

    My GCSEs were 7 A*s, 2 As and a B.

    I'm afraid I'm not sure how important they are I would assume that they care about them being generally good, but not incredible, and they probably care more about your grades for humanities than for sciences. Your A-levels are also going to matter more!

    I know there are some unis who apparently only consider you if you have seven A*s, but to my knowledge Bristol isn't one of them With the amount of applicants Bristol has, I think the personal statement and references are what will make you stand out!

    Good luck
