    Got rejected from Durham for Maths, their reasoning being 'achieved marks' . I'm not sure I get it. I have four As at A-level...
    It is probably because of your gcses. apparently Durham focus on them more than as levels

    I spoke to them today, it was the STEP, they used it against me. Sucks.

    well are you doing A Levels this year? you must be, otherwise they wouldnt have put it as a condition...

    I've ended up with 5 identical offers of AAA lol
    I didn't expect my application to be so successful, as law is such a competitive subject, or I would have applied for a proper back up uni rather than just a couple that could have given me an AAA or AAB offer.

    Still, Bristol is my firm, and Exeter my insurance
    Not quite sure what I'll do if I don't make the grades though!

    The problem will lie in the fact that it isnt medicine. It doesnt matter what uni you go to if you arent doing the degree you really want to do.

    If I did the degree and did graduate medicine, then I would be basically repeating the degree, correct?

    Such a conudrum.

    I want to go to Imperial now I have actually been accepted somewhere, but the fact that it's biomedical science and my career intentions have always been banking or medicine just makes me so unsure

    I don't think you're allowed an insurance choice if your firm is unconditional ...

    Hello everyone,
    I am a student from the Czech Republic and I would very much like to study in Britain next year to finish my studies.
    I have offers to study for MSc from Edinburgh (Economics) Birmingham (Economic Policy and International Business) and from Lancaster (International Business (Economics)) and I am thinking which one is the best.
    What would you recommend?
    Thank you very much in advance.

    I would definately say that Edinburgh is much better than the other two.....Business is quite wooly compared to economics, plus Edinburgh is a much better univesity. well done on getting a place!

    Thanks a lot for the recommendation. I was thinking the same until I saw the university rankings. Edinburgh seems to be very strong in general but in the ranking of economics department Birmingham looks much better. The only thing is the programme that you mentioned. Business is quite far from what I want to study. I just wanted to know what I should be looking at.

    ahhh i see. i just think that economics as Edinburgh will give you much better prospects than economics and business from Birmingham..... but at the end of the day go wherever you will feel most at home.
