    Honestly, I had Cardiff first choice! :yes:

    Bristol, Sussex, Kent and Aberystwyth are my other preferences - somewhere good to study where it is nice to live!

    You know ze head of department?! :adore:

    Where in particular would you suggest living? :holmes: I was hoping for somewhere countrysidey, not too far away from the city and the sea. Gee this is like Escape To The Country! :mmm:
    :awesome:

    Dr.Karen Holford, if you google her, it's her I know

    Hmmm... That's quite a tough one... I'd suggest talybont actually :mmm:

    Near my school, won't be there anymore though :rofl: (far away from my house though)

    Has a river and grass and fields nearby! (blackweir)

    And then town is one long road away transport links are great too

    Theoretical, Particle and Astrophysics are the best imo! :mmm:

    They're so interesting and mind blowing! :eek4:

    The only problem I have with the Physics with Astrophysics degree is that I still have to cover a lot of Physics I won't be interested in. :sigh:




    I too have one on ze 5th, Physics retake. I'm getting As on the past papers with no revision. :lolwut: So how did I not do as well in my exam in January? :confused:
    i am retaking unit 2 :yep:

    Exeter is higher grades as far as I'm aware, if you put cardiff first there's no point putting Exeter as insurance :sad:

    Oh great! I may well be in contact with her soon... (Not the weird way)

    On Google Earth it looks pleasant with some fields! :mmm: But thanks for the suggestion! I could be asking a lot more about the area in the future... :yep:

    I just hope I don't have to live in student accomodation... :grumble: I'm pretty sure there are lots of nice people, it's a shame that there will be some right ********* too! :sigh:

    Oh right I presume Cardiff is ABB for the bachelor course and AAB for the masters...

    But anyways, there still wouldnt be a point in having one as firm and one as insurance if your given the same grade offers

    Yeah that's right. :yep:

    You have a point... :unsure: Although they are both different courses, and I may change my mind closer to the time. I think all of the ones I am interested in want AAB, apart from Aberystwyth, but what if I got rejected in one interview and not in another? :dontknow: Or perhaps there is a sudden rise in demand for one course so the grade boundaries shoot up? :dontknow:

    they won't increase the required grades from what they say they are for that year.. It might be worth applying for a bachelors course for one of them to get the ABB offer, you can usually trade up to the masters if you do well in the 1st year anyway :yep:
