    Yeah exactly, hopefully I'll do better in the re-sit! Oh that's cool, we do nearly all the same subjects! Well done on all your grades, they're amazing! Yeah we only have had coursework so far in English too and I'm currently on an A

    Well I live up north, near Yorkshire so moving down south to somewhere like Sussex would be quite a way, not sure how far! Wow congrats on your A! I only have one English Lit exam this year and it's in June too. Have you done any coursework in English? Yeah I found the Psychology paper really hard, but most people at my school got A's and B's. Hopefully when I re-sit I will too!
    All part of the student life the way I see it, I can't wait to move out, meet new people etc! We just started our Englsih coursework on Gatsby Thank you! I think our psychology teacher is just bad as my friends who took are generally clever and got Es and Us! Good luck for your resit!

    Do you have any idea of what you look for in a university?
    League Tables
    Student Union
    Nightlife
    Campus
    Distance

    what is most important to you?
    For me it's Nightlife > League tables > Campus > Distance > Student union

    SAME AS ME! Alot of people focus too much on league tables and forget that education is only a part of the 3/4 years you will be at university. Especially if you're away from home things like SU and nightlife make it easier for you to meet new people and settle down. UNIVERSITY IS AN EXPERIENCE NOT JUST LECTURES AND EXAMS

    Thanks! Yeah hopefully I'll do better in the re-sit! Yeah we're doing English coursework too and I'm currently on an A. So are you going to look around all of the universities you like in summer, or just a few?

    Its mainly dependent on money and train tickets..I live in Essex, London so it would be cheaper to visit universities down south but i will definitely visit a uni up north. I will probably visit 3/4 universities..my 2 favourites and ones im unsure of whether to apply to due to factors such as distance and campus, student life..

    Aw thanks! I know, and there's so many more exams in summer than there was in January! I just keep thinking if I knuckle down in these next four weeks then I can have the whole summer off to relax!

    Yeah i guess, are you a keen party goer and is Nightlife, Student life a big factor for you? If so watch 'Im Shmacked' videos on youtube, which are amazing videos of US colleges/universities and their party life. It motivates me to work hard now and play harder in the future hahaha

    Yeah that's a good idea, I think I'm going to view my favourites and then a few I'm unsure about and then once I've seen them I'll be able to make up my mind on them I swear this summer I'm just going to be travelling the country with my mates going to loads of uni's, as I've promised to go with them to all of their choices too!

    I love the look of corpus as its fairly small but still one of the older ones. I went there with a few others from school for a tour of a few collages and it was fantastic.
    Kings is also amazing you?
