    In my prospectus says BBB for French and ABB-BBC for Spanish. It seems correct.

    Feeding off of the racism question to which James9876 gave a good answer, I'm just wondering, is Bristol of particularly right wing University? It might be something which would put me off it a little... I'm beyond happy with my offer, though!

    Hope I don't sound too stupid asking this, it's just something I heard.

    Has anyone had an offer for French or French and Spanish? Or do you know what the typical offer would normally be? As on the website it says BBB for French but that doesn't seem right at all!
    Hi, somebody asked about the surprisingly low grade requiements for languages at the open day, and the response was that they are looking for a real sense of enthusiasm and commitment to the subject area in your personal statement and not necessarily outstanding grades

    Well I think it has a relatively high proportion of private school kids compared to other unis if that's what you mean?

    I sent my application off on 16th September and have only had one acknowledgement so far - from LSE - but as you say, not all unis acknowledge. Anyone know how long Bristol usually take to make decisions?
    They never sent me an acknowledgement, and didn't offer me a place until March!

    Again, with 18,000 students I'd be very surprised if you found the student body was overwhelmingly right-wing. I think it's about 1/3 of Bristol's students are from private education, but again I don't think in this day and age that private education is necessarily a precursor to right-wing views. As with the racism issue, at University you're going to find right-wing, left-wing, central, not bothered: every political stance imaginable. You'll also find that, at this level of education, most people are much more open minded about these things. I don't think anyone's political views will impact on your time at University too much.

    look who it is indeed. Are you sure? Can't tempt you into the mathematical and mechanical world of engineering? No? thought not. Ah well.

    I think I'd quite like to go and look round again before I go, would you be up for a trip?

    and i think it goes up to ABB or AAB if you're applying for two languages jointly ?
    i love that you speak catalan btw, i'm learning!

    not necessarily; my offer was abb, but i know people on the same course as me whose offers were bbb.
    it really depends on the language(s) you take, and the popularity of the course.
    i have a friend whose offer was like bbc... it's very random, bristol, i'm afraid!
