    I'm about to apply but the thing is I've hit a dilemma which I need help with from you guys. My parents have told me that I 'can't do English language and linguistics' and have said that I have to do law instead. What do I do?

    Honestly, be firm. It's your life, not your parents'! Just because a degree *seems* more "useful" than another, doesn't mean they get to decide what you're going to study (and then do!) for the next 3+ years of your life!

    I've applied for English and Spanish at Exeter, Birmingham, Southampton, Nottingham and Sheffield. All have been acknowledged but no offers yet But I've been looking all over TSR and I don't think there are many Unis giving out English offers yet. Maybe the department is just a bit slower? I know it's only October but I'm feeling super tense already...

    I literally just got an offer through for English and Spanish there! Nottingham seems really early this year.

    I'm applying for English Literature, and I have some unis in mind, but I haven't narrowed it down to 5.
    I'm thinking Bristol, Nottingham, Newcastle, Manchester, York, Birmingham, Sussex, Southampton maybe Leeds and Kent as my low offer.
    I got AABE at AS and A*AAABBBBBB at GCSE

    Am pretty sure I'll be applying for English language and linguistics, who cares about what they want me to do!

    Hello, I'm currrently in a gap year, just working full time for money purposes, and just to take a break from education really. I'm looking at doing English Language and Linguistics at York St John, but I'm scared I'm just going to be too unacademic to do the subject , A2 level results ABB. Still need to get started on a personal statement. Any people who are already doing the course can suggest his hard it is??

    If you got ABB at A2 then you'll definitely be fine, you sound very academic! I've not done the course, I'm applying myself for next year haha, but York St John don't ask for much in terms of grades so you'll be okay

    I'm applying for English, English and Creative Writing and English Literature at Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth (twice) and Portsmouth. My first choice is Plymouth as I just love the atmosphere of that place and I adore the course from what I can see. I doubt I'll get offers from Exeter and Bristol tbh but if I got one from Bristol I'd definitely consider it!
