    I applied for English there, too. According to their portal, the status of my application is "received and being processed", which it has been since early October! I did some research and I remember seeing that, like most top universities, and especially for such a competitive course, they won't be giving out many offers (if any) until after the UCAS deadline. And also, not forgetting the fact that KCL are notoriously late in giving offers... We probably won't be hearing for some time.

    I got an email from Alan Fortune, a lecturer from Kings to tell me I have an unconditional offer. It provided me with a couple of attachments for open days and course modules. The email also says "I am sending you this email because the electronic portal which connects our admissions system with UCAS is currently not functioning very efficiently. Consequently, this offer may take a few more weeks to reach you via UCAS". I've got the email (I've checked it's legit) to tell me I've been offered a place, but neither UCAS nor the MyKings portal has updated to show my unconditional. I don't know if this is the same for other subjects, I've applied for English Language and Communication, what about you?

    King's generally do not hand out offers before the deadline, so that everyone has an equal chance of being considered. Not sure what the situation with you is :rolleyes: But for English Literature, OP, you probably won't receive an offer for a few months tbh. It was the last offer I got, around March time I think it was.
