    OMG, how did I mistake History for French!?! :lol: I've had a long day, hahahaha. History is cool as well haha.

    Wielu klientów w sklepie telefon gdzie pracuję są polskie! Nauczyłem się kilku polskich zwrotów od nich haha

    Oh nice! I applied to UCL as well. Do you know which universities you're going to firm/insure?
    Haha :laugh: I understood what you just wrote

    I would firm Sheffield and put Nottingham as my insurance ... what about you?

    I haven't actually visited UCL, but I don't think that I would want to study in London

    Woop woop, my Polish skills are improving

    Ahh, interesting. What made you prefere Sheffield? Are the entry requirements at Nottingham lower?

    Same, I applied because I thought it looked good from afar. I've been thinking about it, and I don't think I can afford London to be honest - but I'll wait until I actually get an offer/visit before I make a decision.

    Oh, I applied to Oxford, UCL, Warwick and Bristol apart from Nottingham. If by some majestic feat I actually get an offer, Oxford would be my firm; that's not happening though. :lol: So most likely Warwick (or UCL) for my firm and then Bristol (or Nottingham) for my insurance.

    Nottingham decided to give me a higher offer than their standard one, making it the same as Warwick/UCL, which kind of sucks haha, so I'm hoping I can get one from Bristol instead otherwise my firm and isurance will be the same. :eek:

    The entry requirements for Sheffield and Nottingham are the same, ABB with B in history. I think I just preferred the modules at Sheffield. At Nottingham the courses rely on Russian history, and it isn't until the last year that there are actually modules about Italy and Germany ... At Sheffield there's a bigger variety of modules from different time periods and countries.

    Personally I only had 9 universities to choose from (that's how rare my course combination is ), half of them were in Scotland, then there was Oxford (I would never get in!), and then I was left with the 5 universities which I've applied to, hence why UCL was one of my choices

    Wow, you've applied to Oxford! Hope everything goes well and that you get an offer :jumphug:
    Hmm, that's strange ... does it depend on what other applicants achieved at their AS? All of my choices want ABB, some just want an A in history whereas others want a B. UCL is AAB-ABB, I probably won't even get an offer So basically my firm and insurance will have the same grade requirements :rolleyes:
