    Can I ask which uni is best out of: Warwick, Newcastle and QM?

    for teaching quality, student satisfaction, employability (my personal order of preference)

    and anything else you may deem important.
    Thanks in advance!!

    (I've also had offers from reading (insurance) and leicester.
    Did well at GCSE 8A*s 6As then flopped AS's with ABBB which is why I didn't apply to the top top ones, but predicted A*AA which i'm working my ass off to try and get)

    You can get all of that from any of the various league tables..

    You can get numbers from a league table but you can't get individuals opinions and insights from people who have been to the unis or have friends that go to them etc.

    i want to start LLB from open university as i can't go with regular, i have heard OU is not known outside Uk and whether would it be difficult for me to find a training contract or job?

    What are you interested in, its international reputation or its reputation with UK training contract providers?

    The UK has in the Open University and the London External programmes two of the world's most renowned distance learning providers. The regard in which distance learning is held varies from country to country.

    For UK training contract providers, the assumption would be that an Open University student is studying whilst holding down a full-time job. The respect for OU degrees largely comes from that. Without that full time job, an OU degree might not be seen as very strong.

    But in all seriousness, I received my QMUL offer pretty late too. When I asked them what they were doing they said there has been an extraordinary number of applicants this year.

    Is it worth firming Warwick, and putting Bristol as an insurance (both AAA)?

    Reason being, incase I miss AAA, then Bristol may on the off chance accept me?

    I cite the falls in applicant numbers which may give me this chance.

    Or should I play it safe and insure an AAB?

    Thanks.

    Looking at the offers thread, some have AAB offers and there's even an ABC offer. So in my opinion, definitely worth putting as an insurance choice.

    At least that makes sense, not like somebody on here with a Notts AAB offer as firm and a QM A*AA offer as insurance. That really is just greediness.

    The only problem with that is the AAB offers are given to those with education disadvantage. And the ABC probably is fake, or the person had serious mitigating circumstances.

    Argh!

    If you're interested, Warwick did say at the law open day that if you were to miss your offer by one grade in one subject, they'll still accept you if they have places. I was one of those educationally disadvantaged (lucky me ), so I've gone with Warwick (AAAD) as my firm and Bristol (AAB) as my insurance

    Ah, no I am not going to risk that.

    The woman who was showing our group around actually missed her offer by ONE UMS last year.

    Yet, they said we can't let you in - there are no spare places.

    Luckily, she got a remark and it went up.

    And with increased competition, I can't see any chance of getting into Warwick if I miss a grade, unless I get a remark.

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    I think it depends firstly on how willing you are to take an unintended gap year. There is no point in doing this if you end up clearing to an LLB at Oldham College.

    Next, I think it depends on where your AAB offers are from. I wouldn't turn down Reading (or a low offer AAB from a normally AAA university) but I would turn down Bournemouth for the gamble. There are others where it is more touch and go.

    :eek: Oh, damn them and their false promises! But you're right, talking to the people on the law open day everyone is so academically strong!
    Are you definitely firming Warwick, regardless of your insurance? I don't know anyone going at all and it's terrifying me!

    I was the only person in my year that did, and my sixth form had no idea what to do with me. I've joined the facebook firmers group, but for some reason the idea of posting on it scares the hell out of me. I'm going to be so sociable
