    Well why would you wanna change things around for argument sake?

    I would go for Durham, it's a no brainer, it's not even a question.

    Who wouldn't ?
    Not for argument sake, I have to make my decision tonight, either durham or Reading.
    Why Durham?
    Did you apply there?

    Dude, it's not even a question, an AAB vs ABB uni.

    You should always play the safe option and apply for three uni's that ask for AAB and two that ask for ABB. Rule of thumbs.

    tbh I've had enough drinks for today, that's why I might come across a little different to normal

    As I said before, split it between three AAB's and two ABB's.

    Oh yeah I forgot, in that case it would be....

    AAA vs AAB.

    Your choice mate.

    I got offered AAB when I was on my gap year (retake year xD)

    Do you feel you can push to AAA?

    Yeah no lies, I emailed them and they made it clear that I will not be given a higher offer.
    I think Cardiff, Manchester and places like that require you to get AAA.

    Just because Durham asks for AAB doesn't make it better?
    Why do you think it's better bro?

    Dudeeeeeeeee a top 5 uni vs a top 30 uni (we moved down a little this year to 35th place :/ ).

    I would be cautious though because Durham aren't established. That's the only downside and of course the city is nothing spectacular. Beautiful but hasn't got many shops

    It's all the way in the north as well

    I know, they're general rankings, not league tables related to Pharmacy.

    It's still a world class uni and tbh Pharmacy is a vocational degree so it doesn't matter too much about which uni you graduate from.


    Established vs non-established Pharmacy school.

    The choice is yours.

    Durham.
    Interesting.
    Do you think If reading gave me an offer and I got ABB instead of AAB I would still be accepted?

    Absolutely, they were letting normal A-level students in with BBB (for ABB offers) so I don't see why they can't drop it a little for you on results day.

    You would have to contact the admissions department though to confirm.

    Good, you should never rush into something, especially picking your uni choices!

    When are you gonna send off your UCAS?
