    Just thought you may like to know that you've definitely done a good thing deferring in terms of facilities! They are starting a multi million pound redevelopment of the drama dept in a few months (starting with demolition!) to be completed by 2011, so in your final year you'll get nice & shiny new facilities to play with, whereas my year are just going to be working within half a building during our dissertations probs

    thought I'd say hello....was nosing at this thread.

    Good luck everyone.

    Some people have had offers. However, they say they only give offers now to the very best and give out rejections now to those they don't want. I got a departmental acknowledgement email implying that January is when decisions will be made.

    So they would have got back to me already if they didn't want me? Bear in mind I sent my UCAS form off a week yesterday.

    Well done! What are your predicted grades? And what grades do they want?

    Nice. That makes me look a bit of a prat though, as the entry requirement for mine is BBB and I'm predicted BBC. :/

    Aaaaah, doesn't matter too much; if you had a kick-ass personal statement that shows how passionate and stuff you are, it should boost your application

    What did you apply for?

    I personally think my PS was pretty damn good. Hopefully it'll see me through! I've applied for Sociology, which is good as it's not the most popular of subjects at Bristol.

    No I don't think so. You only sent it off a week ago, so they'll be trying to build a picture of you right now. btw I'm not an expert on this stuff, it's just what I've been told, so don't take my word for it

    I know, but as you can probably tell, I am a tad desperate to get in. Who told you this stuff?
