    Fair enough, brave decision! Though I guess if Bath is only place you really want to go then there's no point applying elsewhere.

    Yeah I went down to UCL in June and really liked it, surprisingly. I thought that coming from a small rural town that London would be a massive culture shock but I think I could cope. I prefer Bath as a place and university, but UCL's course is probably better suited to what I want to do...
    What exactly is it that you want to do? :lol:

    Are people going to visit all the places they have offers on? I was thinking about just going to my potential firm and insurance, but my friends are going to all of them which just seems a bit much.

    I think that's fine, going to 5 seems a bit overkill to me as well. Perhaps look for virtual tours on the university websites?

    Good shout, I hadn't thought about virtual tours. 5 just seems like a bit of a waste of money when at the end of the day you can only choose to two.

    Not too sure, maybe research in environmental materials chemistry but I don't know yet. (Definitely some sort of research though.) UCL's course is a lot broader and more flexible and I could do Earth Sciences alongside everything else, which I can't do at Bath. :dontknow:

    There's a research project in the ChemEng course in Bath, industry or abroad that I really like the sound of. Do they not have something similar for Natural Sciences?

    I think you should go for the one you think you'd be happier at - but that's probably a hard call to make :lol: but I think London is a bit riskier...

    I applied for the year in industry placement at Bath alongside the Masters (so a 5 year course) which seems pretty cool. As I've said, I'm still completely undecided between the two.

    I honestly don't know where I'd be happier at. I do feel like living in London would be totally crazy though! Though Bath is further form home... (which may actually be a good thing?!)


    Got an offer from UEA today, was kind of hoping they'd ask for AAA but sadly not the case. :lol:

    Are all of your offers going to be A*AA? :lol: Cambridge want A*A*A this year right?

    Depends on how much you like living with your parents? Personally, I like being away from them
    Encourages independence and stuff, innit

    Worse comes to worse, flip a coin - and if you were hoping for one side more than the other then that's the one you want to go to

    Actually, I wouldn't recommend basing a major life decision on a coin flip

    It's going well for biology. Really struggling with chemistry though, A2 class tests are really difficult !

    Cambridge would be A*A*A (though I probably won't get an offer ) and Durham could even be A*A*AA, though I don't care about Durham anymore.

    Haha, no, it'll be good to get away from this tiny little town and live somewhere a bit more exciting! (Half the reason I don't want to go to Durham...) It's just quite tricky to get to Bath, that's all. I don't care how far away I have to go though, I kind of accepted from the start that wherever I end up, it's going to be a trek to get there. How far away do you live from Bath?

    Erm, I may not flip a coin... :lol: I may just write up a massive pros and cons list...

    What, flipping a coin or writing a list? Ahh fair enough. I just live ages from anywhere.

    Where? On the rings of Saturn? On a remote island in Scotland? :lol:

    Writing a list, but I did it in my head

    I can write it for you (the list I came up with) if it would help give you some ideas

    Yeah I agree with you and Bude, as long as its not essential and you have your mind firmly set on which Unis you want as firm/insurance I don't really see why, especially if they're really far away!

    Hmm, living on Saturn would be fun but highly impractical. :lol: Durham is the nearest decent place and that's just under an hour away...

    That would actually be really helpful, could you pm me the list?
