    Ah that's a shame, what A2s are you doing now then? I'm not too sure what the options are for French universities in the year abroad, do you know how I could find out?

    Maths further maths and physics off the top of my head it's UPMC in Paris, the Joseph Fourier uni in Grenoble and another one in bordeaux but I can't remember exactly. I found it by trawling the physics at Manchester website and looking at international exchanges -will try and find a link for you bear with me !

    Is it true Manchester gives you a £1000 for 3A*s (if you apply for physics at least)? I think the admissions tutor said that on the visit day at some point

    Yes it is, for the physics department for definite, I cant comment for other departments. Usually around 30% of their cohort attain this bursary.

    So it is 3A*s (not 2 or 4)? Also, do you have a source for this since I can't find it on their website?

    3 although 4 must qualify as well, but for the same amount I think?
    The only source I have of this is the head of the manc physics department telling me at my interview day sorry! I'll have a look on their website now.

    That page is for international students. This one's for UK students: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/un...ecific-awards/

    It sounds like you're talking about the "Faculty Undergraduate Entry Scholarship" (first one in the table). The School of Physics and Astronomy's funding page on their website just links to the one above so I guess you'd need to ask them if you want to find out more about it.

    Hello everyone.

    Just got my conditional offer to go to the University of Manchester, studying Managment N201

    But, on my letter back it says this:

    This offer is subject to you obtaining GCE A level
    Grades AAB

    You must provide evidence of your examinations within 2 weeks of publication.

    Did anyone else get the second section to their conditional offer? I'm bewildered to what it means. Does it mean I have to send of proof of my GCSE's and AS Levels within 2 weeks, or does it mean I have to send off proof of my A Level results when I get them in August? Completely confused and I don't want to **** up my application!

    I'm probably going to make Manchester my first choice. Apparently the nightlife is brilliant and the Madchester music scene suits me to a tee. Love Oasis, The Stone roses ect. Plus two great football teams!! I haven't actually visited the university yet, but from what I've read on here, it's ace.

    If anyone could help me with my question, that would be great. Thanks

    Hey, congrats on your offer
    I think what that second part means is that when you get your results in August, they should be sent off to the university in order to confirm your place at the uni. However, I think that we do not actually need to send off our results as the uni will know whether we have achieved the grade or not before we even get our results. You can even check if you got into the uni of choice before getting your results if you go on the UCAS check section on results day in the morning.

    Manchester is probably my first choice uni too. I love the course and apparently the city is so lively and exciting, so I'm looking forward to that experience.
