    This is a thread for English applicants to the University of Warwick (2012 entry) to see who has an offer for the course. This has been started after the first round of interviews (when I had an interview) but before the second round. Please give as much detail as possible (i.e. GCSE profile, A2 predictions, other offers etc.)

    Congratulations!! I had an interview on the 27th Jan- same day as you? I was wondering (if this is the right place to ask ), how did you get your offer? Did they post you anything, or email? Or did it just come up on Track? I wasn't expecting anything until after february, cause aren't they still interviewing, late feb? Keeping my fingers crossed.

    my interview was with prof. bates, who was so nice. i was one of a few people who didn't have an extract to read beforehand, but most people did. I found the interview incredibly informal, with just one interviewer and it lasted less than 15 minutes.

    any other questions?

    Thanks! That puts my mind at ease a little bit. Just one more if you don't mind- was it all focused around your personal statement?

    Hey! I've got an interview for English Lit on the coming Friday. What do I wear?!?! (this probably shouldn't be my biggest concern, but it's definitely concerning me!)

    I would honestly go with what you're most comfortable in. There was a pretty wide range of stuff being worn when I went for interview and I didn't detect any censure or disapproval from either the staff or the other applicants. And you're going to feel so much more comfortable if you just wear things you really like and that make you feel good. But if I was to be prescriptive- I'd say not to go too fashion-y,or scruffy; you know; simple and inoffensive but your style.

    On the subject of offers... Got an offer for AAA. Woo hoo! So thrilled, I really wanted to go, and now (all being well) I can!!

    It was all focussed on my personal statement. but plenty of other applicants had a text to read beforehand. i presume it's the luck of the draw...
