I sent my application off mid December and didn't expect to hear back till after Xmas anyway and since everyone's sending their applications off now I know it may take longer! I'm really hoping Glasgow uni will accept me! I have 4 A2s at AABB and my course, English Literature/English Language asks for ABB so fingers crossed! Anyone else doing this subject? And anyone else been accepted yet?

I received an unconditional offer on Tuesday (I applied mid December too) so I imagine you'll hear from them very soon if you haven't already! Good luck!

I am from Glasgow so I did Highers last year and got AAAB in them which I think is 305 ucas points if that's of any help I heard that Glasgow aren't looking at personal statements this year, just at grades, which might speed the process of applying up. It was the first uni I heard back from so I think they're moving quite quickly!

Oh right awesome and yeah that's helpful :-) I worry the only thing stopping me getting in is because they might put Scottish applicants first. And I hope they are looking at personal statements, I spent too much time on mine! Haha. I've only heard back from Brunel so far and have an unconditional there, hopefully hear from Glasgow in the coming week!

I don't think they will prioritise Scottish students - or at least I hope not! If I stay in Glasgow I want to make new friends rather than people I already know haha. Ah well done on your unconditional, I hope you get good news from Glasgow soon What is your first choice?

Haha yeah same, I mean I'm a weird one - right now I'm living between London and Scotland as my fiancée lives not far from Glasgow haha. So Glasgow is my first choice, it would be ideal really And thank you :-) Is Glasgow your first choice too? And would you be studying English lit?

I applied to English language, however I'm more inclined to study Religious studies at Aberdeen (if I get it).

Haha, sorry, I didn't realise the thread was for offer holders. I haven't recieved mine yet.

It isn't for offer holders, I don't have an offer from Glasgow uni yet and that's awesome, I hope you hear back from them soon! Does Glasgow not do a religious course? Are you religious yourself or just interested in it?

They have something along the line of "religious education" and theology which isn't exactly what I want to study. I'm non-religious myself and just very interested. My interest in religion triumphs my interest in the English language with just a tiny bit.

Because I've grown up in Glasgow I would really like to move away but I have to say the course looks great and I love the university itself so I'm going to wait till I have all my replies then decide! Yeah English lit, are you the same?

With Scottish unis you take two extra courses for the first two years which makes me want to stay in Scotland (but is pretty much the only reason) and I think I might make one religious studies, like you (illuminatedrain) I'm not religious but interested, although lit is my 'first love' haha. I liked the look of the course at the open day. Good luck with getting an offer!

Ah I understand yeah I get that completely, my course will be combined English literture and English language as I'm interested in both. I've applied for some unis which only do English literature which isn't exactly what I want. Are you from Scotland yourself?

My course is combined English lit and language and yeah I understand that, but when fees are free for you I'd advise staying in Scotland! I'm not prepared to pay 9k a year lol. And the whole two extra courses sounds really interesting too. I think I'll definitely go to Glasgow if they accept me!
