    Ahh right, my sister and me are similar intelligence wise. Oh right! My dad went to uni but my mum left school at 16 with 2 O-Levels. Its kind of it - except that that the teachers who we both have call us the wrong name :lol: Did you? How come?
    Intelligent family then haha. And it just the way things worked out. I applied to go to sixth form where they went but I didn't like the certain subjects they had on offer. Hence why I travel slightly further away. And that must be awkward when they confuse you, do you look alike?

    I have family nearby and grew up in Sheffield sort of. Aww Portsmouth sounds good socially, some universities can be absolute bores despite being high ranking. Like if you have to live at uni then atleast have some fun attractions nearby.

    Oh right I see! Haha that's cool I know what you mean, the student life is fantastic - student wise it is the same size as Sheffield actually (20,000 students). Yeah that's true - at least I will never be bored!
