    I have a list of unis but I can't remember if they're Russell group or not icba to check as I don't have to worry about it yet! But I hope you do get the grades you need to go somewhere you really want! I personally think anyone should jump at the chance of having a year abroad at uni though
    Thanks, I hope so too!
    I'll have a look at year abroad I was thinking of maybe doing a year in industry.

    I would like to, you would work with a company e.g. in a lab and just help them and do research.

    Hello,

    I've just finished year 12 and am waiting for my AS results.
    I was just wondering if you had any tips for how to pick/ how you found the university course you want to do as I can never seem to find any.
    The subjects I do are Biology, Chemistry, Geography and English Lit

    Thanks
    Basically what you enjoy the most/ what you think you're good at. This is how I picked my course. It took me a while as I enjoyed all my subjects and they all combined well with each other (I knew I wanted to a combination of things) but I'm really happy with my decision now. Wait till results day if you're not sure, that might make it a bit easier

    Oh! I was planning to do that as a work experience to put on my CV in the future to improve chances of going into a job
