    Lol, I name dropped a Literary Criticism textbook by one of the professors at Bristol in my PS, so I'm vaguely hoping that might do something for me.

    25:1 for English is INSANELY competitive haha, so I'm not having my hopes too high. I know 5/6 people that got rejected by Bristol but got into Oxbridge. Tbh I'm expecting rejections from both :/

    Wow those are some crazy choices - I had a friend last year who ended up getting 43 on the IB. He applied for English at UCL, Oxford, Bristol, Southampton and QMUL, and only got offers from the latter two. Scary.

    How did you know I was doing the IB haha?!
    Yeah it's tough. And jesus, 43! congrats to him. I'm predicted 42 but not sure if I will get it. Thankfully the IB gets more and more recognition every year, and I'm just so happy I already have my offer from York so I'm not in similar situation And Exeter really likes the IB, their standard offer is 34 thank GOD but AAA for A Levels.

    Fingers crossed anyway :/

    Because of the offer in your sig. Can't really get 666 on anything else lol. I had an offer from Exeter last year, missed it hence why I'm here again. :P I'm not applying there again after they were so incredibly negative about everything. Didn't find the campus that impressive anyway.

    Oh right of couuuuurse haha, forgot I put the actual offer there.
    Yes Exeter is undeniably my back up, both because of the lower standard offer and the fact that I just like the course least.
    I haven't ranked any of my others yet. Figured I'd find out who wants me before making a choice haha.

    I'd be really happy with Bristol - lovely city, amazing course, and I already have a few friends there I'm prefectly fine just going to Liverpool though, if worst comes to worst.

    I think I'm ranking mine atm as:

    Bristol/Liverpool
    Durham/York
    Leeds.

    :P

    I'm guessing one of the reasons behind the scary applicants : places ratios is that loads of top applicants have Bristol as their 2nd or 3rd option, so lots of the offers they give end up not being accepted in favour of Oxbridge etc

    That's not to say Bristol isn't competitive, it is, but I'm sure that applicants per offer would be far less scary

    I had that problem! My follow-up e-mail from Bristol went in my junk box, as did my Warwick acknowledgement and an Exeter follow-up e-mail. Darn junk filter... But same, I'm completely in love with this uni.
