    Try, "I am an English Literature student in my last year."

    No. Your sentence is incorrect. The preposition is awkward. Try, "in my last year now."

    It is insulting to the many highly-educated female contributors who help students on this board to assume that we are all male.

    I wasn't offended... "Sir" is, after all, a term of respect.

    Fair enough, Laura.

    It's the assumption of certain nationalities that only men are educated enough to answer their questions that gets up my nose.

    It's a reflection of how they view their own women's educational level.
