    I'm from Manchester and was at the Uni yesterday, it is really nice and Manchester is amazing, of course

    If my predicted grades were high enough... (ABB instead of ABC )... then it would definitely be my first choice!!!
    APPLY! they make exceptions sometimes!

    ah, I go agsb

    Apparently they show you around the campus for a couple of hours, sounds like a right waste of time especially if you live in Manchester :lol:

    lol i saw that bit, i hope its more of a tour of the department than the area :/ i went on the tour at the open day because my friend wanted to see it, they included the curry mile in it, talking about how useful it was! lol

    but yeah like you said i was most pleased about the buffet :P

    Applying for Economics (BSc) Hons - Need AAB

    GCSEs A* A* A A A A A B B B C (C in German, B B B in Eng Lang, one of the dual science awards and Persian)

    AS results;
    Modern History C
    Maths B
    Economics B (2 UMS off an A)
    Psychology B

    Didn't try hard enough so i'll be resitting some modules. Dropped psychology and my predicted A2 are AAB. The B is Modern History.

    I do General Studies as well and i'm doing an EPQ too.

    Reckon this is enough for a good chance?
    It's me again. Spoken about my predicted grades, and my teacher's have put down AAC! :/

    BUT my history teacher wrote on my reference for the universities that she thinks i'll get a B with a resit i'm intending to do. Reckon this will affect my chances?

    I have the same problem as you I'm predicted A*BB but I'm hoping my maths teacher wirtes in the reference that she thinks I will get an A after my resit too.

    I hope this does not hinder our chances

    I'm applying for European Studies + German, deferred entry, predicted AAB
    The course looks great, probably my favourite after UCL's, but my parents keep telling me Manchester's a horrible place to be - they really didn't want me to apply there! Thoughts? I couldn't go to the open day so I feel pretty much in the dark, hoping I'll be invited for interview/look around the department so I can find out what it's really like...

    Don't listen to them. Manchester is awesome! I have a flatmate who says it's like London only smaller and friendlier and she loves it

    I'm from near London and love Manchester! (in some ways prefer it) if you're unsure about it this website could be helpful, it's not as biased as Uni's own videos:http://unionview.co.uk/
