    Has anyone been to open day to any of the following universities- imperial college london, Nottingham, Birmingham, UCL? If not then what is the uni you have been to that was very good??
    I've been to Imperial. It was amazing! All the building are modern and the campus has a nice feel to it. The accomodation are pretty neat too! And the sport centre and the library are awesome! I want to go there so bad. What course do you wanna do there?

    I am doing 4 A2 levels and I'm getting stressed because I feel like nobody else is in the same position! It really worries me! I know that if I work really hard and put the effort in, it will pay off like it did in my AS year. Anyone else doing 4 full A levels?
    You're not the one in that position, don't worry. I know 2 guys at my school who are doing 4 A-levels

    Do you think I'd be able to do it if I really work hard? I got 2 A's and a B in 3 of the subjects I'm doing at A2 and they're modular so I guess that takes pressure off! The other A was in a subject I'm doing at A2 but it's linear so I've lost the A and just have to keep the good work up! :O

    Getting even a single A at As level is pretty impressive in my opinion so getting 3 of them and a B. Well done!! Yes with hard work, you can make it work. You just have to accept that this year will be harder on you than probs most people in your year. Don't get bogged down by it though, only like 8 months left.

    Ps. What are you thinking of applying to?

    Cool, 2 are my friends are applying for Law too.

    I'm applying to Imperial, Leeds, Birmingham for Medicine. Not sure what the 4th med school will be.
    And then as the 5th option is mandatorily something else. I'm going to apply to Warwick for Biomedical Sciences.

    Classmates are so-so,2 of my best friends(One of which was my first-ever friend) have already left,It's a school for grade 1 to 12 so there are always kids running around(Sometimes it's annoying when you're stressed or something,I don't have anything against kids),There is barely any discipline so you can imagine the type of crowd,I was bullied for a few years by this guy who is still around(Not bullying me anymore,I tend to avoid him) which caused(?) me to have social anxiety(Partially?),You can imagine the troubles in school if you have that.

    Oh my God! It sounds a right nightmare! It's a bit too late to think about moving anywhere else so just get your head down, work hard, get those great grades and you'll be out of there before you know it! I feel so sorry for you, it must be awful
