    Cambridge
    UCL
    UEA (maybe, probably as my "lower grade" uni)

    I need two others :awesome: Maybe some more in London
    Damn Cambridge is like the closest Uni to home yet I have 0 zero, oh noo and I also don't want to take the BMAT and the UKCAT.
    The most appealing so far for me is Glasgow, then Kings, UAE and I'm not sure for the 4th. Maybe I'll have to take both admissions. Glasgow just seems nice for some reason, might be the city.

    Cambridge :daydreaming: It probably won't happen, but it's worth a shot.

    Other than that Warwick, York, Durham and possibly Manchester, but I'd rather move away from home
    Ooh so many Cambridge hopefuls o;

    but the exams are more important that is where you will gain tbh because most people falter on exams

    I can see it now, 90% of the thread go on to become Cambridge Alumni, reminisce about the old times on TSR and have a laugh, whilst I'm suffering the torrential Scottish rain at some mere top 20 :'(

    Who would? But to be honest, I was nearly persuaded by a teacher... She said I'd be and achieve the best, due to sheer panic I picked the ICT GCSE and quickly changed to Business.. Biggest mistake ever!!

    Ooh, yeah I'm trying for just UKCAT, other than Glasgow, I'll probably mainly stick to the South. I've actually never been to the North but they don't seem too found of those down below. Would be nice to find a familiar fa-user name.

    But everyone on here is like a sort of brilliant genius. I'm going to go off into an example nobody will get I assume, but it's like in League of Legends where every team composition seems brilliant and well organised except yours except on here, everyone is a genius except me haha
    Other than the cheaper fares to visit home, I'm sure there's no actual benefit of Cambridge.

    I think it's because I once said that I know how to say 'open the door' in Spanish (thanks Wheatley :awesome: )

    Come to think of it, why am I in the English section as well? I'm crap at English :lol:

    You got the Biology bit right though :love: :love: :love: :love:

    I'm actually pretty undecided, PBL seems like it'd be more beneficial for future practise though

    What universities are everyone thinking off, if you're already thinking that far ahead
    Glasgow and Robert Gordon, so far. Might apply to Oxbridge just to see if I could get in. Not sure about the last one, will probably be something with lower requirements as a backup.
