    Applied for Physics with/and Astrophysics at these unis:

    Birmingham
    Manchester
    Edinburgh
    Cardiff
    York

    Predicted A*AA

    Has anyone got any offers from these ones?

    My UCAS form was sent to the unis today so how long do you think I will have to wait before responses?

    I've got 3 AAA unis
    1 AAB
    1 ABB
    So I feel slightly more relaxed than you guys, I imagine...

    Will be interesting to see if the offers match their official requirements

    Cardiff will probably be my back up. When I visited the uni I didn't really have time to see the city, what's it like?

    Medium sized city
    Really well balanced as it's not too busy but it's busy enough to make you feel like you're somewhere bustling and central
    Has everything you'd want in a city; crazy night life, tons of restaurants, and the main shopping centre is quite new and so is great to go shopping or out to town with friends
    And Cardiff Bay is what makes it special I suppose, great area to have a day out and relax with friends
    One negative is big bands often don't come to Cardiff so if you're into that you might have to travel a bit
