    Just sent my UCAS for English yesterday afternoon to Uni of Leeds, Uni of Birmingham, Uni of Sheffield, Uni of Liverpool and Uni of Leicester. A lot of my friends have been getting offers within 24 hours who've sent it off this month or last, but for different departments and at different universities.

    Was wondering if anyone has had any offers specifically for English from any of these unis (or other unis) yet? I've received acknowledgement of application from four out of five, but no offers yet.

    I'm so excited it's making me impatient!!!

    Nice choices! I applied for English at UEA(with creative writing), Southampton, Kent (English and American Literature), RHUL and Sussex a month ago. Got Kent the next day, UEA this Monday, and haven't heard from the other three. No experience of your choices though.

    UEA! I never thought I'd get an offer for their English with Creative Writing course - it's quite competitive, and I didn't think my portfolio was good enough, so I'm chuffed to bits to have received an offer! You?

    I applied for English at Liverpool, Chester, Edge Hill, Queen's Belfast, and Stirling. Got an offer from Chester on Monday, still waiting on the others (only sent off on Saturday evening). Are you doing Lit and Lang or just one of them?

    I applied for English Lit at Leeds, Sheffield and Liverpool, and then for English at Birmingham and Leicester (but they're still almost 100% Lit if you opt out of Lang modules).

    I got an offer from Liverpool yesterday, took them exactly a week to get back to me so you should get your offer soon!

    Ooh, congrats Hopefully I will get one soon! The wait for offers is horrible, I am checking my email and Track an unhealthy amount...
