    letter as in email? Cos I got an email from them and thought I had now been rejected but I spoke to a guy and he said he got the same so he called them and they said that's just an automated email that everyone got in response to the error by UCAS.

    email, hmm but if you go on the bristol application portal it says rejected. So im pretty sure i am rejeceted! nvmmm! (it hasnt changed on ucas, but most of the time you get an email rejection from the uni, then it eventually changes )

    That's strange though cos me and my friend both got the false rejection and then after that email so he rang them up and asked if he was rejected and she said no its just a automated email sent to everyone after the error they made. Plus haven't got anything on my UCAS (they removed the first mistake) Btw what is the Bristol application portal?? whats the page??

    I'm not sure about UCAS making mistakes, but I've heard universities making them. SGUL rejected my friend and then called them up in July after exams with an offer... and they lived happily ever after :grin:

    Bristol have just emailed saying its another error, hmm, all this and I will probably still end up getting rejected! It should have come with the first email they ever sent you

    I've never known it to happen what can happen is that the emails can get delayed, but I don't think it happens where they mistakenly give you an offer and then turn it into a rejection. It'd be awfully unfair if they did

    If you really are worried phone the university up. But you might look a bit silly so I'd just trust Track

    Well done by the way

    I've never known UCAS to make a mistake, so I'm guessing it's a rare occasion. You've got an offer, congratulations and good luck!

    This is very interesting:confused:. I have just received a rejection from UCL for English, without having had an interview and I am really a bit upset (not full of myself, honest). It's just that I'm predicted, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get, higher than required grades and my teacher was gobsmacked when I told him (he went to UCL) and they gave no specific reason, which makes me paranoid, that whatever grades I get, there's something really bad about my application (I'm scared of asking for feedback- self-esteem's a bit fragile right now). Anyway, interview at Warwick soon, so onwards and upwards.
    I got rejected from English at UCL (without an interview) last year having already achieved A*AAA at A level with the A* in Eng. Lit.

    To be honest I was a bit shocked at first because I had already exceeded the entry requirements and my tutors had all said my personal statement was very good. I think you just have to bear in mind that it is incredibly competitive and UCL can afford to reject you on the basis of any small weakness in your application (I think ultimately it was my poor GCSEs that let me down). I've since realised that English probably wasn't the right course for me and applied for something else entirely this year, but best of luck to you with Warwick and your other choices. :yes:

    Not UCASs fault, but a friend of mine was sent a rejection from Oxford and then they emailed her saying, essentially, 'oops, sorry, our bad. You're still getting an offer.'

    It's nothing like 20%. More like 6%.
