That's fair enough; I haven't spent much time in Scotland or Wales, so "English" may be a better description of me. When I was doing my A levels, we had some instructions for filling out our UCCA forms (the old version of UCAS). Quoting from memory, they said something like this: "Nationality for most of you will be 'British', although Scottish nationalists may be able to get away with writing 'Scottish'." So, since that's what it says on my passport etc., that's how I normally describe myself, but I'd really say that both apply (i.e. I'm English and British).
