On hold for Bristol???

Also applying for LSE, so I am worried that I am n hold because I am a weaker applicant. So many people in my year have had Bristol offers.
I was put on hold for English Literature and my friend who's applying for spanish and history got an offer, so im hoping it's just differences in departments and because more people apply to english literature than for spanish (can't say for history though)? I hope i get in because it's my second choice after cambridge

You've submitted your application, so no matter how strong or a weak a candidate you might be, you just need to wait for a decision. The deadline for universities to give decisions for applications submitted before the end of January is 16th May -- so, for any university, you might have some time to wait for a decision.

You won't be asked to choose a firm and insurance choice before you've had decisions from all the universities you've applied to.

Why would I lie about that. Offered have included Geography, Music, Natural Sciences and History.

Sounds unlikely, but if there has been offers given out then that is great.

I have got an offer three days after applying - it’s real! I know of quite a few others too

im on hold with 4 A*s, its so annoying
Also puzzled why Bristol gives out some offers but puts others on hold this has happened with two people I know of from the same school, same grades, same predicted grades etc.
