    What was Nottingham like? It looks really nice but I won't get a chance to go to an open day
    Nottingham was my favourite open day - beautiful campus and it was so well organised, got to talk to loads of students and they all seemed to really enjoy it. What seems to put people off is that it isn't in the city centre, but I asked the students and they said the buses are quite good and that if you chip in for a taxi it's quite cheap.

    2. How are your personal statements getting along?Haven't started it yet however I have a lot of notes for each section. My personal statement is gonna bang!

    3. What subjects are you currently studying and, what do you hope to study at uni (give the 5 uni's you want to go to)
    I currently study Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. I may pick up AS Computer Science in year 13 when I drop Physics. Maths at uni is the goal. Choices: Bath, Manchester, Surrey, Nottingham and Southampton!

    I'm thinking the same thing, I don't think I can get a lift and trains are crazy expensive

    Haha that's ironic because I started off year 12 with Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Computing. On enrolment I was going to pick economics but the guy said there was little mathematics invoved ... Do you mind us continuing our convo via PM?

    Got my UKCAT in two weeks so I'm focusing on that rather than my personal statement
    Mine is in around two weeks too, and good plan!

    I stayed in Nottingham for a summer school and I loved it! I don't know if it's just the area I stayed it (Derby Halls) but there were loads of nice fields and scenery and it all had a very close knit campus feel to it. The town centre isn't too far from the uni either. I might be a little biased though
    Aw that's good! Wish I had done a summer school or something, sounds so good. They UKCAT heavy or not?

    I do English lit, psychology and history. I got AAC on results day, the c in English lit which was obviously upsetting as I want to do English lit at Warwick. Do you guys think it's worth applying or should I forget about it.

    Yep

    Bath, Durham, Exeter, Surrey and Nottingham.

    Might look at Oxford and/or Warwick if I build up the courage.
