    thats the only thing, my worst science is chemistry. i was thinking about human biology but it is hard to find a college that does this.
    Don't do chemistry then, you generally only need 1 science!

    Universities understand that human Biology is a rare A level so will be unlikely to hold that against you as long as you get strong grades in Biology, I got an E in Chemistry As and have still been invited to interview, when asked for biology and one other science in an offer, Maths usualy counts for your other ( Geography was even mentioned in some of the entry requirements) , dont do chemistry just for the sake of doing it when other subjects you may be stonger at will be just as good
    ah ok! so i have definitely decided to do maths and biology, now i cant decide what else to do. is law or politics good. or what about sociology and phycology... what is the difference between the two? Also maybe p.e or business studies...opinions?

    I think it means UCAS have sent your application to the university and they're reviewing it and UCAS is waiting on a response.

    Hey I have an interview on the 28th for Staffordshire...I've heard its a maths test, English test and group discussion with a final individual interview? Does this sound right? And to anybody that's had an interview anywhere is the maths test a calculator paper or not? And is the English test just a general question to test your ability or is it paramedic related?

    I've had my interview at Staffordshire in December and been offered a place so I can tell you exactly what should happen
    You get there, put a sticker on with your name on, take a maths test (non calculator) then have a break, after the break you have a group discussion over a given senario then go for lunch. After lunch they tell you who has got through to individual interview and then after that you get an interview time (on that day). I was lucky enough to be first and after your interview you are free to go. You find out roughly two weeks (I wait 17 days) later if they offer you a place through email.
    Hope this helps and your interview goes well!

    That's all god experience, however, it probably came down to how you put it across in your personal statement and interview. Anyone can list that they've done xyz but they need to show what they've learned/gained from it.
