    1) I've visited UCL and UWE! Only two so far, but they will (probably - exam results pending!) be my firm and insurance choices
    2) Very well! I've finished, just have to do a few tweaks my tutor suggested
    3) English Literature, English Language, History and ICT. I hope to study IT management for business at either UCL, UWE, Sussex, Reading or Oxford Brookes

    Aren't we technically in year 13, seeing as last year has already finished?

    ANYWAY...

    Have people visited the uni's they would like to go to yet?
    How are your personal statements getting along?
    What subjects are you currently studying and, what do you hope to study at uni (give the 5 uni's you want to go to)
    I haven't been to a single university in my life! I already know which university i want to go to.
    I will start my personal statement next week maybe.
    I'm doing maths, further maths , economics and physics.
    I'll hopefully study maths and/with economics. Applying to LSE (not sure if I'll get in), UCL, Bristol and two others.

    I'll sort out a nice OP when I go on my laptop.

    Thought it would be a good idea to do it now seeing as we've started A2 and will be doing various Y13 stuff over the summer!

    I'll change the thread to "The Current Year 13..." after results day

    In the meantime - good luck with results day!
    Good luck to you as well!

    So I've visited Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, UCL (one building so not properly), KCL.
    First draft of personal statement is done, though it still needs a lot of work!
    Currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History.
    Hope to study Economics at the best place I can get into haha (hopefully Cambridge)

    What's everyone else thinking about?

    I study Biology, Business, ICT, Chemistry (Chem for AS only, I will drop it).
    University choices: Coventry, Aberystwyth and Staffordshire so far. I have 3/5 choices done on UCAS, I don't think I want anymore if i'm honest.

    I was planning on visiting Bristol but I broke my leg so I couldn't...hopefully in September, along with Southampton.

    I haven't started writing mine yet but that's my goal for the summer, to have a decent draft, because knowing my school they'll just piss about and f*** it up for me.

    I'm studying Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Economics. I can't wait to drop chemistry (hopefully), and even though I got forced into Economics, I love it.

    Uni wise, my heart is set on Southampton (pre-visit) and then Bristol. People say I need more than two universities so I've looked briefly at Bath and Birmingham, but all three other than Southampton want A*AA but Southampton only wants AAA, which weirds me out a bit, but hey ho.
    I'm hoping that means I can get an offer and get the grades for Southampton with ease. (Or at least, more ease than the others.)

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, I'm planning to study Physics at uni

    1. Yeah, all in all i've been to 9! I started looking during September/October of 2015, start of year 12
    2. Haven't even started! I have ideas of what i'll write about, however
    3. Currently studying english lit, sociology, history, and i did AS Biology but i'm dropping it.
    I want to study English Lit + creative writing at Warwick (first choice) or Birmingham (second choice) and just plain English Lit for my other choices - Warwick again, Birmingham again, and probably Glasgow!
