    Where did you get offers from? Also what is Fife like as a place, as I am considering St Andrews? Sorry for all the questions
    The Kingdom of Fife is an absolute bog and I'm not kidding.

    Oh how come?
    I honestly just feel too young aha! I'll still only be 17 when I go to uni and I know some people feel ready but I feel as if the last 5 years have flown by and I should still be in 2nd year :')

    Although, if you ask me halfway through 6th year I might be the complete opposite :P

    Napier and Aberdeen! Fife's quite a big place, but St Andrews is lovely! But if you're looking for a big, busy city then it won't be for you. The town itself is really quiet, but it's very beautiful and old - the beach is my favourite! It's not that far from the cities, though.

    Trust me, Fife is a terrible place. St Andrews is a little place on it's own away from the rest of Fife so it still maintains its reputation as being a bit posh; Fife is not posh in any way, shape or form. Also, some St Andrews students tend to go out to Dundee on the weekends which is not even in Fife though whether its any better or not is a different story.

    Despite all that, you should not be put off.

    my 5 (not definitely sure, though):

    Strathclyde
    Aberdeen
    Robert Gorgon Aberdeen (recommended by a girl I know)
    Edinburgh Napier
    West of Scotland

    I looked up the ranking and UWS is supposed to be worst, but I want to study economics or management, so i don´t know how good my chances are

    do you think I should try one of the best universities? why are the chances of getting a place?

    i think Strathclyde and Aberdeen are quite good, i don´t know

    I've been looking for a while too, basically since I declined all of my offers for this year because I realised I wasn't ready yet!
    I'm not sure exactly what I want to do yet, though. I applied for languages but I've realised I want to apply for something more social. ("But what's more social than languages?!") I mean something people-based, if that makes sense :')
    I don't know what unis you're looking at, but I'm considering ESPS at UCL and the combined honours system at durham.

    I want to do languages and social sciences and so I'm having a bit of trouble finding unis which do it (I believe St. Andrews allow you to, but I don't like it ).

    I'm applying for Maths. In terms of Scottish Unis I'm definitely applying to Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt as I love the city and the courses I may also apply to Glasgow, but I really haven't decided about that one yet, I guess it depends on my exam results and how confident I am with my predictions!

    It doesn't hold a great reputation but I have friends who go their and they are really enjoying their time at uni. I'm from Paisley (Where UWS is) and the town itself is ideal for students as rental prices are relatively low. Night life isn't the best here but your only fifteen minutes in the train from Glasgow, which has excellent nightlife.

    I'm applying for Glasgow Caledonian to do Multimedia Journalism, Northumbria for Journalism with Media Studies, University of Salford for Journalism (Multimedia) and finally London College of Communication to do Journalism.

    Caley will probably be my first choice.

    Anyone thinking of going to any of these unis?

    Is it too early to start thinking about this? LOL
    It's never too early to start thinking about these things! I was somewhat O.C.D., but I had some idea about what I wanted to go and do from when I was in Year 11 and beyond, really! Granted, I didn't start really planning out which universities I'd actually visit and which departments I'd make a point of seeing, as it was always a toss-up between English Literature or History for me in terms of what I'd studyt at uni', but I made sure I visited both faculties at the uni's in which I was most interested. That's important, I think.

    So what subject and institutions are you looking at studying in, if you don't mind my asking?
