    I think you should be aware that they will have too many applicants to need to be kind and every English applicant should have a 'strong' personal statement. However, if it is your only high risk application, then you may be lucky. English is as competitive as it gets, so don't take too many chances besides this.

    That seems eminently sensible. Good luck.

    Very unlikely you'll get a place, as Bristol will sweep through seeing who is predicted the entry requirements. Those who are not will be liable to a fairly swift cut, although if it's your only aspirational uni, I guess you might as well, just don't get your hopes up too much.
