    I love the look of corpus as its fairly small but still one of the older ones. I went there with a few others from school for a tour of a few collages and it was fantastic.
    Kings is also amazing you?

    Yeah i guess, are you a keen party goer and is Nightlife, Student life a big factor for you? If so watch 'Im Shmacked' videos on youtube, which are amazing videos of US colleges/universities and their party life. It motivates me to work hard now and play harder in the future hahaha
    Yes, the socialising and the lifestyle is one of the best things about uni! Oh ok! I'll go check them out!

    Mmm I suppose it won't be as strange for me which is good...but the idea of no retake opportunities is scary for everyone!!
    Yep I'm just going over everything, little posters, notecards...going the whole hog!!! I just hope it's worth it!!!!

    Things will become clearer after Summer exams and we receive our predicted grades. At this point in time we have months to narrow things down..its GREAT to start with many it shows you have an open mind and have more of a chance of finding your perfect uni! dont you worry dont you worry childd

    I'm looking at geography courses and my favourites at the moment are Exeter, Birmingham and Southampton. I feel like I've been thinking about university for ages and it's getting to the time now when it's acceptable and people don't think i'm planning way too early!

    Another one looking at Psychology here!

    My current A Levels are Psychology, English Lit, Maths and Art. I'm predicted to get A's and B's in all of these subjects. (Teachers reckon if I push myself, it'll be a set of straight A's though. So fingers crossed.)

    Psychology is one of the one's I'm hoping to get an A in (considering I'm wanting to take it at uni). So although I got a B in the January paper (which I was incredibly happy with!) I'm re-sitting in the summer (I WILL get that A. XD).

    So universities? Bath is looking like my first choice - I love the area, the course, only downside is I've heard the nightlife isn't great. But to be honest, it'll be a good laugh wherever you go - so I'm not too worried (I should be more worried about those entry requirements! A*AA is going to be incredibly difficult to get!). I have plans to attend the open day this summer, to see for myself what it's like.

    Other universities include Sheffield (been here and it's gorgeous! AND with a good reputation, can't really ask for more than that) and Lincoln (more of a 'safety net' uni, only need three B's I think). Not really looked into others yet, although Surrey and Nottingham look pretty good too.

    I'm looking at straight English Lit or Lit joint with Philosophy. My top choices for the latter are Durham (fingers crossed I make it on to their summer school!) or Lancaster (I think I've sort of fallen in love with the place a bit :P). I was thinking of applying to Cambridge, but it depends solely on my UMS grades, most especially in Philosophy. >.< Anyone else for English/Joint Honours?
