So I got BBC in my AS results and those results were enough for me to be predicted the grades I wanted so I was ok with it. The thing is, when I got my results, my mum was like, "Oh you should stay in London (where we live) because I know you'll fail if you're alone." and she basically tried to guilt trip me into applying for unis in London. I don't like any of the unis in London because of location and atmosphere and when I tried to tell her this, she said I was looking at the uni for the most shallow reasons and I was trying to break apart the family.
I'm viewing university as a way to escape because I have a terrible relationship with my family and I'm planning to just go to university and never come back. At the moment, I've looked at unis and all of them are out of London and more than an hour and a half away. Back in June,I went to a uni 2 hours away from where we live and I loved it. She ruined the whole day by saying how my degree wasn't worth going away for (I want to do an Arts subject) and that I was going to come crawling back to her. What annoys me the most is that my twin brother is applying for Physics at uni and she's openly encouraging him to apply for university out of London but with me she's the complete opposite.
I'm not sure what I should do because she's such a controlling mother and quite frankly, I hate her and don't want to see her again after I go to uni. Should I just apply to where I want? I'm thinking of doing that but then I'm scared that it'll be a blood bath of an argument.
Mum doesn't want me to apply for university out of London.
