Anyway, still not definite but Chichester, Canterbury, Winchester and Plymouth for English and Brighton for English and Education.

politics & spanish at cardiff and bristol
politics & american studies at swansea
politics & history at edinburgh
politics at LSE

The last two are there cause my head of sixth form has been trying to pressure me into going to Oxford/Cambridge (to boost the prospective numbers for the year group I reckon), but I'd have to do PPE (Philosophy, Politics, Economics) there, and frankly I don't want to do the other two, so it's easier not to apply.

And as far as preferences go, I'd rather get in to Cardiff first and foremost, and Swansea second.
