    Congratulations! I was thinking of putting Surrey as my firm and Lancaster as my insurance ? But I'm also casually waiting to hear back from Loughborough 🙃. I heard that the Lancaster course only got accredited last year or so ? But it's also higher in the League tables on average????
    Thanks!
    Congrats to you aswell i think its definitely wise to wait til you hear back from all your choices! I'm not sure how trustworthy league tables are, if you can do visit the universities, like Surrey's applicant day, did you get invited?

    Unsure if trolling. If you just want to earn money, this isn't the course for you. I just started working in biopharm and earn £23k/year just for a bit of insight.

    Nah, im not trolling. But money is an important part of it. I wouldnt have applied for it if was just for money.comgrats,23k aint too shabby for a grad job.

    Does anyone know how much the personal statement plays a role in a chemeng application if youre only applying for unis that your pred grades meet or exceed their expectations? I already have A*A in maths and chem and am currently doing further maths where Im predicted A and really want to get an offer from Bath, but I am thinking my ps is relatively weak compared to other people...

    When did you send off your UCAS if you don't mind me asking? Your predictions are good enough for either Imperial or Bath

    chem eng department might be tightening things up cause there are too much students like me who is crappy that got in. plus a lot of colleges give lenient predicted grades (like i did). offer normally would be 2A*2A/3A*A or 3A*/2A*A with the last one being unlikely. (i got the first offer)

    Highly doubt you're crappy if you got in! It's just worrying bc I haven't got A2 or AS Physics. I'm doing Maths, Chemistry, Biology and picked up AS F maths (A*A*AA). Are the people on your course ridiculously clever? And how many don't have physics ? lmao
