      Depending on what you want from uni, though, has the potential to be nowhere near an enjoyable.

      That's true, people say student life at Birkbeck is dead, usually it is geared towards mature students that work full time(this has changed slightly because now they offer some full time daytime courses). Some say they can compensate for this by joining the rest of the University of London student unions and societies. This of course is something for the OP to consider, I just gave her another option.

        Of course it does, nowadays even larger numbers than it used to. Having the option to graduate debt free appeals to many students nowadays.

        Well regardless of that, its not a place with low entry requirements

        for most courses it seems to ask for at least ABB, and they're a very small institution

        low entry would be
        London south bank
        Westminister
        Greenwich
        London Met

        or brighton, st mary, cantebury chrst, coventry etc

        why not look at london unis? maybe queen mary, city or something along those lines?
        Is Queen Mary a hard university to get into? I was looking at it yesterday considering a Law degree with the subjects History, English Literature, Mathematics, Politics & Economics (probably History, English Literature and Mathematics A2).

        Depends what you mean by "hard" and for what subjects. I'm not sure how hard Law is to get into - they do ask for decent grades (not sure how many ucas points though)

        You're insanely thick if you think you can get into QMUL Politics with CCC. If you don't know anything, don't give useless advice.

        For law, yes (not the hardest, but certainly not the easiest). It's very competitive in some subjects.

        His predicted are ABB, not CCC - now I don't know much about QMUL i'll admit that, but from where i'm standing ABB seems alright for queen mary, at least for most subjects...
