Bristol Application On Hold

I applied for English at Bristol for this year and at the end of February my application got put on hold. Does anyone have any kind of idea as to how much longer my application will be on hold for?

It's nearing the end of March which seems to be the latest a lot of Universities respond to most people, but how big a possibility is it that I could really be waiting until mid May?

Any idea how many places they have/how many offers they give out? Do you have offers from anywhere else? I know vet med is really competitive!

I think they have given out around 6/7 batches of offers so its not looking too promising but I do have an offer from Surrey which is amazing and yes it really is so competitive! what about you, have u had other offers?

Aha, good you have an offer. Getting any offer for vet med is amazing! Especially this year.

I have offers from my other 4 Unis, but Bristol is my favourite. I've not heard of anyone with a Psych and Neuro offer and I don't think there are many places available. It's quite a new course so hard to know.

My bf has already firmed and chosen his accommodation (not Bristol) and I still have no idea where I might be going!

yeah I keep seeing people for psych or neuroscience but not the joint course!! I applied to Manchester & kings for psych & neuroscience got offers, & then Exeter & St. Andrews just for psych, got an offer from Exeter & rejected from st Andrews lol, if I don’t get into Bristol, Kings is my second choice! Where did you apply!

Getting an offer from Kings is immense - they have a great rep for Psych. Manchester and Exeter are high ranking too. Hopefully Bristol will be a yes for you. St Andrews is tiny, so much be v hard to get into.

I have got offers from York, Nottingham, Royal Holloway and Cardiff. The integrated Masters at York is my next favourite after Bristol. I am still hopeful, but it feels more stressful the longer the wait goes on. I know it is hard this year will the exam uncertainty, but why have some Unis made their offers and others haven't?!

they’re such good unis well done!! & yeah I don’t understand why it’s taking them so long to make a decision like the email says you’ve met the requirements but you’re on hold?!?!? So annoying :frown: I will be so angry if I’ve waited all this time & they reject me like they could’ve told me 5 months ago !
I’m on hold, post interview for dentistry
