    I'm having second thoughts too... I don't think I will be happy at Southampton and I'm thinking about going to Hertfordshire since it's easier to get to where I live

    Why will you not be happy at Southampton - what did you like about it when you applied

    Why does getting there easily matter to you - is this just fear of change

    I applied there cause the head of my sixthform put a lot of pressure on me and he made almost all the year 13 students in my school to apply to Russell group universities. And it matters to me because I am family oriented. I would want to go home at least every week to see my family but if I go Southampton, it would cost a lot of money and I don't even drive. I haven't even got my license yet.

    If being able to get home that important then you should look at alternatives in clearing or take a gap year

    I assume that your grades are well above Herts requirements?

    Yeah it's above Herts requirements. I heard from them on result's day but since I'm applying for Nursing, I would have to go to the interview and do maths and english tests. To be honest, I would feel extremely bad when I ask Southampton to release me cause it's a good uni for Nursing but idk.

    I know but it's far from my home. I am not the type to party or make friends either. I will be so lonely.

    I think that you have to decide on your priorities

    Southampton is an excellent university
    Nursing will be hard work - going home every weekend would not be advisable

    Why not look on the subject forum and get some advice
