    Edinburgh is a gorgeous University!
    Haha, speculating is good! I've been looking at every option myself!

    Hopefully Bath for Pharmacy, just got to keep my fingers crossed I get my grades though! x
    Yeah Edinburgh is great I think speculating is all we can do for the next few days unfortunately :rolleyes:.

    Bath is a really nice historical place as well, although I've never seen/visited the university as it didn't do my course. Is the university modern or old? What grades do you need?

    I didn't visit or see Bath at all, but I decided to apply there due to family pressure actually! I saw it on my interview date and thought it was quite lively and the lecturers seemed lovely, so I firmed it.
    It's not old like Edinburgh, but it's not modern either. It's like a 60's concrete campus, which doesn't sound too nice to be honest, but its got a nice campus feeling to it

    I need AAB, so I just have to keep my fingers crossed I;ve got an A on my R.S exam XD xx

    I'm quite familiar with family pressure, I was nearly forced into applying to Exeter despite the fact that it was the one university I didn't want to go to (mainly due to proximity as I live in Torbay). I ended up applying to Durham who I was promptly rejected by, but if Exeter had given me an offer I may have been forced into going there :P. Anyway I'm sure Bath is great, I probably would have applied there myself if it had offered my course. The 'campus' thing is nice, at Edinburgh the catered accommodation buildings (which is where I've applied to be) are in on a mini-campus just out of town which is cool.

    I think we spoke earlier about Philosophy, and I'm sure you'll have done enough. My main worry is getting my third A in Geography...or lest I say it Drama :eek:.

    The thing I am most worried about is that I don't even have the luxury of an insurance...

    Any University of Kent firmers? It's my insurance. I think it might be where I end up.

    I'm not mad, I'm just not afraid of having an opinion. What kind of simpleton says 'umad'?

    Why are you so annoyed? Did somebody fail their A-Levels?
    I'm annoyed because, after making it to an AAB-requiring university (I was one grade off but they let me in), a large portion of people there are typically from middle/upper-middle class backgrounds, who are blatantly the products of pushy parenting and/or superior schools, but frankly I don't see that much natural intelligence in most of these people. Everything about them seems artificial and not quite right.

    Im the complete opposite, im excited! ( I f*d up like two exams but still ...oddly excited o_O), the anticipation, the wait it's all been too long. Let's get it over and done with!
    Whatever happens, is meant to be.

    Yes I completely understand the whole anticipation for results to become available as soon as possible but it's more of a means to unleash me from this horrific wait rather than wanting to know what I've got. I don't have high hopes.

    WHAT IS LIFE
    Working through Breaking Bad marathon style to take my mind off the big day... cooling down from a recent LotR spree though, opting for Watchmen after this!

    Oh the thought of leaving home just makes me wish it was Thursday already so I can know when I can get out of here for sure!!

    Though hopefully, as I'm on a gap year (working), I will be moving into my own flat in Edinburgh..

    It would be nice to know I have somewhere to go at the end of that year though!
