    Read an article in the Guardian today......apparently Bristol are rejecting people by the bucketful. As in, people are getting into places like Oxbridge and Imperial but not Bristol.....I think they are just really pushing for places at the moment, so I'm not going to be TOO upset if I get a rejection to be honest.

    Well Bristol is incredibly competitive, more so than Imperial and Oxbridge, and it is a top University, so it's inevitable people will get rejected by them who end up at Oxbridge or Imperial.

    Hi

    I have applied to Bristol and haven't had anything but the general acknowledgement in 8 weeks! Should I be worried and contact the university? But I don't want to do this and sound too pushy and risk it ruining my application. But then again, it says on the website that all applicants should be contacted within 4 weeks of recieveing the application to establish contact.

    Thanks for any advice

    Had an offer last year for maths, missed it by 5 marks. Hoping to get an unconditional this year for another subject after being told I'd have got in on my grades for it last year, and very likely would this year by the head of admissions.

    Environmental geoscience. Fingers crossed!

    I think they may count the general acknowledgement as contact I got an email saying they most likely wont make offers until after the january deadline so i wouldnt be worried about it, they might just take a while to respond!

    I think the only reason it appears more competitive is that people don't apply for Oxbridge unless they are really considered a potential applicant. Lots of people will apply to Bristol without the grades that they need in the hopes they may get an offer..people don't take that chance with Oxbridge (generally)

    Yay a geographer! If you have any questions about Bristol geography, you can ask me and I think there are a few other geographers lurking around as well.
    I got my offer in late January last year despite having applied in October, so you might have to wait a bit longer, unfortunately. They've definitely started reading the personal statements already as one of my lecturers keeps complaining about how all applicants say the same things They might not make the decisions until January though. Good luck!
