For what subject? If it’s something like veterinary medicine then Bristol have a reputation for being notoriously slow with giving out offers/rejections as they don’t interview for that subject, don’t know about other subjects tho. Generally, I think if you’re put on hold it means that they’ve looked at your application and think you’re a decent applicant but want to see how many of the people they’ve already given offers to put them as their firm choice. Plus they may just want a bit more time to look at your application and consider if you’re a suitable candidate or not. Hope this helps x

Yes. Otherwise they would’ve made you unsuccessful at this stage. You’re likely somewhere in the middle of the pool of applicants.

No news is good news at this stage, although you are obviously not guaranteed an offer.

I am surprised their message did not give you rough timescales as to when you might hear. You can always give them a quick call to ask. It might making the wait less stressful.

I know!!! Im quite an anxious person so it's so horrible not knowing how long it is going to be. I have already waited 6 weeks and have got offers from all my university's but Bristol is the one I really care about. I might email back but I think they really should have given me some sort of timescale, all they said is that they will keep me updated, however I am pretty sure this means 'when we reach a conclusion we will tell you'

If it's any consulation, I'm also on hold for sociology at Bristol! I panicked when I saw it today as it's my first choice, but it doesn't mean your application was unsuccessful. It's stressful waiting for a decision though x
