    Hi, I'm doing chemistry, physics and maths A levels and I've got a grade A in biology AS. I'm looking to do something like natural sciences or a chemistry and physics joint honours degree. Any ideas for good unis to apply for? Oh by the way I'm predicted to get A*s this year because I got 4 As last year in my AS exams. I'm so unsure, I was thinking of applying to UCL or Imperial college but I'm not sure I want to live in London. Is it bad there?
    Any replies or comments are appreciated

    With these grade you can easily get into Oxbridge, Durham, Bath... go on the complete university guide, and it will show you which uni would be best for what you want to do

    I suggest you apply to both Imperial and UCL. London has many crime problems, but it's not so bad in the richer areas. If you can afford to live in the rich areas, which you can if you're poor due to these universities' generous bursaries, then you'll be fine. Even if you live in the more crime-prone areas, you can still be fine if you stay on the main road and at night, go out with a group.
