    *Mods please move this thread if it can be placed somewhere more appropriate*

    I am applying for 2017 entry after leaving college in 2015 with ABC (Psychology, English Lit and Theatre Studies, respectively).

    I've been feeling bummed out because a lot of the best unis are out of reach for me due to my B in English, however I found a joint honours course at UoN - English and American Studies - that does not require an A in English and I may well be able to get a place on the course.

    However, is American Studies less 'respected' than pure English, and would a joint honours be harder? Would it be better to apply elsewhere for a pure English BA? Has anyone studied this course at UoN and have any positives/negatives to say about it?

    Really stuck here guys. Nottingham is a great uni and I'd love to attend, but I don't want to pick reputation of a uni over the course, so any help would really be useful.
