Haha thanks! Stats and pure maths is fun. Just need more practice and be clear with the concepts.

Not that expensive? Haha! It costs around RM700k to send a scholar to UK. Is £1056 per month considered a lot, for London?

Wow! SMART GIRL! Hahahaha that's nice! Congrats!
It's certainly not very expensive.... In relative terms, of course. Compared to the nearing $60,000 for the East Coast schools in the States, or the practical medical courses costing £25,000 or more, the cost is definitely on the lower end.

I think you should be fine with a thousand pounds a month, although i suppose it's never enough for London! It largely depended on what you wish to do, really. If you wish to dine at Michelin star restaurants and watch musicals while sipping champagne every other day, a thousand might be on the low side. If you're fine with cooking at home, chatting in college bars and eye shopping, you'll be well off!

Isn't 22nd a saturday? That's a pretty short freshers' week. Haha! Or maybe UCL's one is just really long..

My birthday's on the 23rd of sep. HAHA! You're not the only one.
I must say they have a bizarre idea of a "week," in my opinion. Mine starts on a Sunday (23rd) and ends on a Wednesday the week after...... Going to be an amusing yet tiring 10 days!

That's true! I saw the cost for most maths related courses are at the lower spectrum in relative to medical courses, pharmacy, dentistry etc. But considering I'm from a middle income Malaysian family, supporting myself financially isn't an easy task, neither for me and my family. Without a scholarship, it's a dream that can only remain at its own state.

Yep, although I still think my accommodation at university hall is a bit overpriced. The cheapest university hall at City University is Liberty Hall or Liberty Court (same price), costing £180 per week. For me personally, cooking at home, chatting in college bars and window shopping shall be a more appropriate one. Otherwise I will go broke very soon.

Hey guys!

I'm planning on a trip to the Harry potter exhibition but I haven't done much research on it and I'm not familiar with Singapore. I would really appreciate your advice and suggestions on the itinerary for the trip. Among my questions are:


1. How long will the tour in the Harry potter exhibition take?

2. Is it really necessary to book tickets to visit the place on Saturday (18/8)?

3. What other recommended places could I visit after the tour?

4. Any recommended food/restaurant around the area?

5. What was your itinerary when you travelled to the exhibition?

Thank you for your assistance!
Hi! I went there about a month ago with my friends.

We took about an hour to tour the place. It was probably because we weren't allowed to take any pictures. -_-"

I think you may have to book tickets since it is a weekend. But if you want to take a chance, you can just go there and see if there are any free ones. Its been here quite long already, so most of the locals would have already seen it. There will only be tourists there now, so it should be fine to just go there and get the tickets.

If you want to go somewhere in the city area, you could go to 'Gardens by the Bay' then out of the city area, there are tourist attractions like Sentosa, Zoo, Bird Park and all. But they are far away. You might just want to walk around shopping districts like Orchard Road too.

Right outside the exhibition, next to it is Marina Bay Sands mall. There are many eateries at the bottom floor with all sorts of cuisines (coffee shop) the food there is much cheaper than the rest of the restaurants there, so you may want to eat there.

We just took water and our wallets with us. You may want to bring and umbrella in-case it rains too. Nothing else is needed. You can take pictures in front of the exhibition, but it is not allowed once you're inside, so its up to you if you want to bring a camera.

I hope you have a nice time there !

I know right, insane price! That's why I'm looking for accommodation outside campus now. But if everything fails, it seems I just have to take up the hall.

Hey guys

I'm leaving for Leicester in about a months' time, just wanted to get an opinion on what you guys will be bringing over with you? I have a friend who'll be bringing tons of stuff over, but my dad told me to bring just the essentials.

What's your take on this?

Try these but i'm really unsure. I'm just figuring it out with the league tables using the UCAS tariff (approximation only)
(You should see a consultant tho)

1. Birmingham City
2. Leeds Metropolitan
3. Westminster
4. Oxford Brookes (Quite tough)
5. Manchester Metropolitan
6. Queen Margaret
7. University College Birmingham
8. London Metropolitan
9. Hull (Quite tough)
10. Bangor (Quite difficult)
11. Kent (Quite tough)

I picked out these 11 because I've heard of them before which means they are more reputable in a sense.....?

try retaking your chemistry since u applying for next year's entry? pushing it to at least a C gives u chances to better universities.
i took a gap year to improve too, and i am happy with the results i received.





i might choose oxford brookes, queen margaret, kent. Bangor is quite good. and i got friends in Hull doing IR and business. these 2 are the best faculty in the university. Just don't choose london met, its ranked the last in every faculty almost every year. same goes for anglia ruskin.







30th august by BA

Thanks for your help folks! Any consultant to recommend?
