    1. Have people visited the uni's they would like to go to yet? I've been to Queens Mary, and went to a summer school at Southampton Solent and Newcastle.

    2. How are your personal statements getting along?
    Completed a draft so far, but need to develop some points.

    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 am currently studying Film studies, English lit and lang, Business and BTEC Fashion and clothing ( but I dropped it this year)
    At uni I hope to do a joint degree in English and business. Newcastle and Coventry are the only ones that I'm considering so far.

    Yep

    Bath, Durham, Exeter, Surrey and Nottingham.

    Might look at Oxford and/or Warwick if I build up the courage.
    Sounds pretty good, I'm thinking Oxford Warwick UCL Surrey and Bath
    If you do an EPQ and get an A or higher your offer for Bath is reduced to AAA

    Yeahh Oxford Economics and management is really competitive though, I'll probably be going to Warwick. I guess it depends on whether you like writing long essays or not I finished mine in April so I'd be eligible for the offer and I'll probably make it my firm

    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.
    I know what you mean, I got a B but it was supposed to be my definite A! I think it's deffo worth applying still, you've still got a year to improve it. Which exam board did you do?

    Aw that's good! Wish I had done a summer school or something, sounds so good. They UKCAT heavy or not?
    I'm not entirely sure since I was on the Engineering strand of the school. They did do a UKCAT session for those on the Medicince strand so I assume they are?

    Nottingham pretty much require you to be good all round

    They have several 'rounds' of the admissions process:
    ROUND 1 - Have you got the minimum requirements?
    ROUND 2 - They score everyone who passes round 1 on their GCSEs and UKCAT (if they are in year 13, different for people who have finished school, or are applying as graduates) and people in a top % get through to round 3
    ROUND 3 - They then score the remaining personal statements, adding that score onto the academic score, then rank for interview
    ROUND 4 - Interview!

    You can see their scoring document on their website

    EDIT: I think(/hope) this is correct :lol:
