    I've applied to York, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham and Manchester met. I've had all 5 offers but now I'm just deciding where to go. I really want a big city to enjoy student life, does anyone know if York is like this??

    It's probably the smallest city out of your choices (not sure on the size of Nottingham) but it's still a good size. Be aware that the university campus isn't actually in the city of York itself though, it's about a 20 minute walk out which I found slightly disappointing because I'd prefer to be IN the city (like Manchester is). It's still a really nice, historic place though. I went to the open day and from what I've heard student life is pretty good!

    Hey guys, got an interview tomorrow to get a chance to convert my conditional offer from QMUL to an unconditional one. I think they call this the OPA at QMUL. Any history interviews that people have been to and can share some/any questions they were asked? Thanks!

    Reminder of ....

    Lots of good TSR advice about making Firm and Insurance choices here : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...urance-choices

    You have MONTHS to make this decision - so don't panic and make a rushed decision that you then regret.


    Have a Happy Christmas everyone!

    Hi Guys, I am a a 2017 applicant to History, I would like to apply to Warwick, Sheffield, Exeter and Sussex.
    My A2 Grades:
    *History: A
    *Government and Politics: A
    *English Language: A
    And I have just started Alevel Maths as a Fourth, I don't know my grade but I am hoping to be around A.
    I am unsure of my AS Level results.
    Do you think I have a chance of getting into these universities?

    Many thanks

    Hey, if you've already got AAA in those subjects at A2, it's more a question of how you wouldn't have a chance
