    Anyone on here seen the University of Leeds aswell and would be able to give me a comparison? I've got an offer from both but I really love Leeds! Is it worth looking at Sheffield too, to see what I may be missing out on? Everyone seems to love it!
    Leeds is going to be my firm choice i think so if you want to know anything just message me
    What course are you applying for?

    Sorry to break the chain, but i'm insuring Sheffield - it was between Newcastle and Sheffield and then Sheffield gave me a lower offer, so it seems logical! Love the city and the university though, I spend a lot of time there already
    ahhhh im picking between sheffield and newcastle. sheffield is my higher offer but newcastle gave me a scholarship :/ such a hard decision!

    Firmed Sheffield 3 weeks ago. Manchester is my insurance even though it's the same grades.
    Just applied for accommodation. My main choice is Endcliffe ensuite. Seems like most people are choosing Endcliffe but i don't mind being in Ranmoor instead.
    Im in exactly the same position! Manchester with same grades as insurance :')
    AND i've just applied for Endcliffe Ensuite

    What course are you?

    Possibly firming for Chemistry, but really confused between Sheffield and Warwick
    Choose Sheffield! I live in Warwick and it's really boringgg, nothing much to do! But then again Warwick has the better rep

    You can also pick mixed gender, if you don't want to be with all boys. You can always meet up with girls in other places, too

    I don't have problems with boys, they're alright. It's just dad's heard horror stories about boys forcing girls to cook for them etc.

    I've firmed law and criminology too
    After my Jan results realised it would be next to impossible to get the grades (Biology is basically the Devil), so called them up and switched to Social Policy and Criminology instead!
    Good luck though!

    Me too! I'm sure I read somewhere that you get allocated accommodation first if you have an unconditional, but I might just be making that up, haha. I hope so, anyway
    I've got an unconditional too and have been randomly reading that unconditionals get allocated 1st, hope so :P! I read somewhere that unconditionals will be told in July and conditionals shall be told after their results
