    He's a nice guy. Don't get the wrong Ian though; here are a few in the department. Apparently being called Ian is an advantage there.
    Good luck I'd suggest Lancaster but I suppose I'm biased Nottingham seems nice too; I enjoy Sixty Symbols and the professors seem pretty enthusiastic. I wish I'd applied there haha
    That could get confusing - multiple Ians. Thank you, and to you! Lancaster was probably the most impressive university for physics I think but Nottingham was my favourite overall. I'll see what I think when I have all my offers

    Yeah, one of them is Australian though so you can tell him apart Heh, I'll probably need all the good luck I can get, so thanks! Lancaster is great, and I love how nerdy the students seem; especially the low-temperature lot. Decisions, decisions!

    [QUOTE=DanRigg96#;48428978]Thought I'd start a thread where us Physics buddies can share about Universities and courses we're looking at and interested in etc!
    A few questions to get started:
    -Where you live?
    -A Levels chosen and predicted/hopeful AS and A2 grades?
    -Branches of physics you're interested in?
    -Universities you're looking at/favouring?
    -Specific course(s) you're planning on applying for?

    Adam Lunnon
    Hertfordshire
    Maths, Further Maths and Physics
    Predicted AAA
    Astro,Particle Physics
    Physics Bsc at; Bristol, Southampton, Exeter, Surrey, Leicester.

    Been invited for visit day at Southampton next Saturday. Received offers for Surrey (AAB) and Leicester (Unconditional)

    I thought unconditional offers were virtually unheard of for people still to do A2s but seeing them all over the place, congrats man!


    Got an offer from Nottingham through the post. They say standard offer is A*AA but they would like to 'treat my application individually to make sure the offer is right' and have invited me to a visit day in February so we shall see lol

    Applied to do Physics with Astrophysics at Nottingham, Exeter, Leicester, Kent and Edinburgh last week. How long do these universities normally take to reply?

    Exeter replied to me after a few days, Nottingham a couple of weeks but I assume it varies for everyone depending on your application. Can't help you with the other 3 unfortunately

    Good luck! My Imperial interview was really enjoyable. It's good that you have Manchester first, where the interview doesn't matter too much to prepare you for it

    Hey thanks! Honestly didn't know unconditional offers were so obscure! :O I have no idea(and surprised) on how I got it really..because I don't take As(I thought the unconventionality will give me a huge disadvantage) I am actually in my final year in my diploma in aerospace engineering...I always assumed they would prefer to see my final cumulative results as the results could jump around from semester to semester. Hahaha so I'm definitely unsure on how the schools decide on whether one gets a conditional or an unconditional!

    All the best with that man! Did your predicted grades meet their standard offer?

    I applied for Physics at Oxford, Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics at Surrey (Conditional offer AAA), Astrophysics at UCL, Physics with Astrophysics at Leicester (Unconditional) and Physics with astrophysics with a year in the USA at Kent (ABB).

    I'm predicted A*AAA in Physics,maths, chemistry and computing. With my biggest regret not taking further maths!
