    Cool, I applied around mid-October, so about 3/4 weeks ago? So you might get one in a couple of weeks time (or few days if they've only recently started making offers)

    Is Northumbria your firm or insurance? I applied last year for Law but I didn't really research my Uni's thoroughly so decided to reapply this year. I do hope I get an offer, it looks a great campus.

    Firm, I've applied before as well and didn't research properly but in 2010. I went to 6th form from school and did the IB Diploma instead of A levels but it was the school's first year of doing it and everyone either wasn't entered or did really badly. I moved to college and did A levels instead and am now doing much better, and now there's several unis I can apply for I've looked into them all properly.

    Have you been on an open day? I went to the one in July and loved the Law school, it also had the best SU from the unis I looked at and tons of great accomodation.

    What are your predicted grades? I don't know whether to risk an AAB and AAA choice instead of a BCC one. Oh I've heard of the IB Diploma but unsure of what it really consisted of. I applied last year to Man Met, UCLan, Leeds Met (twice) and Sussex, but I didn't research it properly either.

    No I haven't been to the open day, but I've heard great things about the Law School

    I'm predicted A*AA and got AABC at AS, realistically I think I'll get AAB/ABB though. I think it's worth having one choice you aim high with, you can then always have two realistic firms and two realistic insurance choices. I picked Oxford (high choice), Northumbria (first choice realistic firm ABB), Huddersfield (second choice realistic firm AAB), Sunderland (realistic insurance BCC) & Plymouth (realistic insurance 300 UCAS). I haven't decided which way round Plymouth & Sunderland are yet.

    And remember if you get an offer and miss it then you've always got an insurance choice.

    Monday 14th September is Student Finance Day! This is a national day dedicated to explaining the 2012 changes to student finance in England.

    The main aim of Student Finance Day is simple - to ensure people understand how the new student finance package works before they make a decision as to whether they can afford to go to university.

    At Northumbria we’re doing our best to provide clear, concise information about student finance, and to support scholars with a generous range of scholarships and bursaries.

    99.9% sure i'll put Northumbria as my insurance choice.
    As far as 'back up's' go, I'd say Northumbria's a pretty sweet one
