    it was k at AS but my view changed completely about bio at A2

    good luck with your results

    Hi..im from Bradford and it really is a nice town. Great clubs such as Tokyo's, Coco's....and bars such as lloyds. All of these are in the town centre which is near the uni which is near the student accomodation. I personally aint applying to Bradford because it is small when compared to the likes of Leeds and Sheffield...however the train station is a little walk away and leeds is just round the corner from Bradford....or cud always get a taxii....It is a multicultural town...people from all backgrounds and there is always something to do; whether it be a night out in the town, cinema, bowling, shisha....lool
    There are various indian resteraunts and alot of cheap takeaways around bradford.

    Good place to be if u want to have fun, especially as leeds is also 20 minute train ride from Bradford...

    Hope this helps.!!

    btw where u comin frm??
    hey, i'm thinking of applying for optometry at bradford. i just wanted to get first hand info from someone who actually goes there? i've heard bradford is a run down area with a high crime rate and alot of drug dealers and stuff? majority being pakistani? (i'm pakistani also however i like multicultural diversity) just wanted to ask how you are finding it and if you recommend me considering studying optometry there? thank you...

    Yeah i've heard of people getting in BBB and even BBC but it's their firm choice. I don't think they would be THAT lenient with insurance. I hope it's in clearing

    This. Get in your car and don't stop till you hit Leeds. I lived there 14 years and the town is literally a hole. Seriously, there is a gaping hole in the middle of the town.

    The uni might be good but I couldn't recommend it unless you're asian, in which case it might be acceptable.
