    Yeah but it only had 53 applicants this year. I was hoping the 104 would put people off and it seems like it did😜

    Also I did all the TSA practice papers and was getting high marks so St. John's was the only one using the TSA

    Personally think UCL is a more prestigious course, but general opinions on this are split between the two

    They're pretty much the same.

    I'd pick Warwick as the uni/campus is a lot nicer imo. But it's all a matter of personal preferences, visit both and decide.

    Funny how the number game works lol.

    John's is a pretty sweet college. Their May Ball was rated as the 6th best party in the world in some magazine.

    As long as you can put up with the constant hate from everyone else .

    The college I applied to, Selwyn, had 69 applicants for 6-8 places, which is about average for the last few years but is still really competitive. The level of competition at King's looked ridiculous though this year!

    UCL solely because London is more interesting/fun/central than Warwick which is a bit of a bubble.

    I'm firming UCL L101 too, I'm also interested to see what the competition for places is like at American Unis -for me it's Columbia>>UCLA/Chicago>UPenn/Georgetown>>>>>>>the rest. To be honest I really have my heart set on Columbia but I'm imagining that this the most popular just because it's an Ivy and it's in New York City. There are only 20 places on L101 though according to the FAQ, and I think 10 different unis you can go to in third year. Wondering if that means that they send two to each? Or maybe they are more flexible? I also read somewhere I think you get priority based on your performance in first/second year.

    When's your open day?
    I feel the same way about Columbia, that's one of the main things I want to find out from the open day tbh, the competition for each of the unis abroad

    Mine's Wednesday 3rd of Feb, you?
