Hey there, has anyone who has been pooled after applying for English, received any offers or any communication at all?

It just seems very strange that no English has been mentioned, and yet it is one of the most popular subjects!! BOO HOO! lol

I was pooled for English tooooo and I've heard nothing, *nothing*!
I don't know of anyone else who's been pooled for it, so I have no idea if they've given out a load of offers or if they're just taking a long time to decide (with all the millions of pooled English applicants they probably had...dammit...) >.<

I too was pooled for English. There don't seem to be many English people on these boards though. Which colleges did you both go for?

I applied for Jesus...

Maybe the applications are looked at in subject order, English maybe later... at the moment it seems to be sciences or maths etc. Ya know?!

How about you

Maybe that's right.... to be honest I am not overly hopeful! I applied to Christ's and was pooled. But to be honest there's no reason why subjects should be done in order. Specific departments will look at all the applications in the pool. The only thing is if there are many more English applicants to get through, but even that means stronger competition so less chance.

Sorry to be bleak about it but I've been waiting for a call for two days now and beginning to think it won't come.

That is SO unfair! I emailed last night to find out and he said "colleges don't give out that sort of information." So still gonna have to put up with minor heart attacks when the phone goes!

Oh well - bad luck (not getting in) and good luck (having found out and going to UCL!)

Well to be honest i am a bit confused, since the reply i got was identical to adshur (who was also rejected after pool).. So i'm thinking is this a standard response...

Yea strange, but i was more concerned with getting my UCL offer than Cam.. now got to explain to the English department in me school.. gonna buy a bottle of champagne for em all and ME!

lol.. good luck.xxx
