    Its isnt the Uni that will get you a job in the Middle East - it's you.

    obviously i know that, really wasn't looking for that tho. Some unis are generally better preferred in different regions and that was in concerns with job prospects. Durham's ranking in higher locally and internationally lower.
    Therefore, looking out for anyone from the middle east who'd give me their opinion on preference of companies there.

    Guys Nottingham are taking ages to get back to me for an application of Law with French
    I even emailed them asking when I should have a decision, and they have not responded. What should I do?? Tired of waiting it out.

    So if you want to work in the middle east, how will you execute that? What I'm implying is, can you speak Arabic and are you affirmative that a LLB Law degree will be liable (for example, one of my friends had done "international law" and another "law with french" and both work overseas).


    In terms of ranking them in preference, I really don't know sorry. However these may help you:

    Would it be a bad idea to firm Warwick and insure SOAS, when both are asking for AAA?
    If I miss my grades, would UCAS make both my firm and insurance reject me automatically?
    I know SOAS are a bit more lenient in terms of grades (my sister missed her grades AAB & got BBC)

    For quite some time, I've had a massive dilemma of whether to firm Nottingham or Bristol (both offers at AAA). Am I mad if I firm Bristol over Nottingham anyone?
    Bristol gives you the alternative offer of A*AB - a big plus if you get wobbly grades in August,and suggestive that they may be more flexible than Notts.

    I feel like I can achieve AAA regardless. Does the flexibility mean Bristol is less academically reputated?

    It's highly unlikely they'll be flexible this year considering the mass of rejections they handed out (due to increased levels of apps).

    Just choose whichever you like in terms of location and course structure. The difference between them is non-existent.

    Okay thanks. I liked Bristol in terms of vibe, location, etc. so probably will be going with that. A*AB helps also

    It's a bit risky perhaps, but not a bad idea if you know that SOAS will be lenient.
    It's not up to UCAS; it's up to the unis. UCAS is just a go-between: unis make a decision and inform UCAS, then UCAS informs you.

    I'm still trying to fathom the logic in this question.

    Well you know how higher requirements may mean that it's a more selective uni therefore more competition and thus higher standards? I mean if Bristol is held in such a high regard why isn't their offer on par with say, QM?

    The fact that a uni asks for certain conditions doesn't mean all students get them. QMUL has almost always been in clearing.

    And that aside, Bristol takes about 400 students while Notts takes 170 or so - obviously they are not directly comparable on that regard.

    QMUL is known as the King ********ter of unis. Their nominal or "de jure" entry is divorced from reality.

    If that was true, then the Jurisprudence BA at Oxford (AAA) would be piss easy to get into. Entry requirements, which are often more about excluding lower-grade applicants or making a course look more competitive to certain gullible applicants, are a very poor way of determining which universities are "looked upon favourably", particularly when it comes to employers later on.

    Besides, the average UCAS entry tariff for Bristol and QMUL, despite QMUL's higher entry requirements (A*AA and 37 @ IB versus AAA/A*AB and 36 @ IB), is nearly identical. Compare the two courses' average UCAS tariff on this table.

    Gosh. What do we do then? I've tried calling them twice today with no luck. It keeps saying nobody as available to pick the call. And I emailed them a few days ago, still haven't responded

    Okay, bad comparison. Is Nottingham being A*AA then closer to the likes of KCL/UCL/LSE or is Bristol?

    Notts is closer than Bristol. But Notts is closer to Bristol than it is to UCL/KCL/LSE.

    How considerable is the difference really? I am leaning towards Bristol atm, but feel like Nottingham is marginally better academics-wise
