    Sorry for asking, but was your offer for St Andrews higher than Edinburgh? I received an offer from St Andrews and it was considerably higher then the one I firmed for Edinburgh.

    My Edinburgh offer was ABBB and the lowest offer that I received (which was great because it's the university I've dreamt of going to for many years) and St Andrews were asking for AAAB. Aberdeen asked for AABB, and like you I firmed the Edinburgh offer and then used the higher Aberdeen offer as an insurance, because if I mess up then Aberdeen may take pity on me, you never know :L

    Aww you won't mess up, I'm sure you'll do great! I'm the same, never thought I'd get an offer from Edinburgh in a million years! What course are you doing? All of my offers were AAA apart from Edinburgh, so I had no choice in making a bad insurance option

    Self catered too. And nah I don't think they are, because I went for chalmers st, portsborough court and meadow court all through edinburgh uni, and it's not first come first served as far as i know.. I'd defo go for unite they look nice like. X
    Ah right yeah suppose that makes more sense! Think I'll probably make the same choices, unite does look really smart. What you studying?x

    Hello! Not really, possibly European history, British economic and environmental history. Have you?

    I mostly like the look of the third and fourth year modules!
