    I'm from Ireland so mine's a bit different.

    Junior Certificate results: AAAAAAABBB
    Course: Chemistry
    Leaving Certificate: Chemistry, Physics, Maths, English, Music, French, Irish, Applied Maths.
    Predicted: AAAAABBB respectively

    Got an offer of AAABBB the last day. Delighted.

    Each LC exam is regarded as being about 2/3 of an A-Level exam (except possibly Maths, which may be worth more, I'm not sure, we do cover a lot) so my offer equates to about AAB for A-Levels I guess!

    Hey guys

    I'm a first year mathematics student at the University of Bath. If you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer them. Please be aware though that I've only been here for a couple of weeks, so I'm no expert when it comes to the uni, but the application & settling in processes are both fresh in my mind.

    Overall first impressions have been great though, and I'm already really enjoying my time here. The lecturers and general feel of the uni are both great - it is genuinely somewhere I'd be happy to be at for the next three - five years.

    Hi, I'm applying to bath for pharmacy, what is the student union like, how do you find the library and sport facilities and how was the accommodation like, Freshers week and did you get enough support with settling in

    Hi, I'm applying to bath for pharmacy, what is the student union like, how do you find the library and sport facilities and how was the accommodation like, Freshers week and did you get enough support with settling in
    The student union is very good. The on-campus club can be a little cramped at times, but overall the club & bar do an excellent job of putting on loads of events, quizzes, prizes, themes etc.

    The library is excellent and is also open 24 hours a day. Personally, I think that this is an absolute must for any university. Sadly, many don't offer this, but Bath does I know that I personally have been up until past one in the morning for the last eight nights in a row doing various things (none of which were parties), so yeah, being able to pop-in at ridiculous hours is really useful. No matter how little you think it might be now

    The sports facilities are also very good. Check bathstudent.com for the full list of societies and sports available, and look at where they train. I personally do a lot of rock climbing, and that means trekking all the way to Bristol. But even that is not really an issue, so the couple in town (such as gymnastics) won't be an issue either, and the majority on campus certainly won't be.

    Freshers was excellent. It wasn't all about partying. I personally don't drink any alcohol, and I don't particularly enjoy clubbing, but I still had a really great - and completely packed - timetable for freshers. It's a bit of a cliché to say that there's "something for everyone", but there really is - every minute of every day has so many activities on that you will like being at at least one of them.

    Making friends was also definitely not an issue, and the settling in process was as easy as. We had several second years assigned to our block, and they spent the whole week with us making sure we were settling in and having a great time. I personally didn't use any other support than that, but there was loads more if needed - staff, resident tutors, phone line services, peer mentors, etc. etc.

    Finally, the accommodation is really good. I wouldn't like to make any comment on correlation being in any way related to causation - it's not, so you need to make your own choice on which halls you choose. Do you want to pay extra for an en-suite, or does that not matter to you? Are you desperate for a larger kitchen, or are you willing to share a little bit more? Overall, though Eastwood, Westwood, Wessex and Norwood tend to have wild parties every night, and complete chaos and mess at other times. Quads, Polden, and Woodland tend to be more subdued and neat. Malborough and Salisbury somewhere in the middle.

    Oh, and if you're buying a bus pass (academic year, 20 rides, whatever), the First service costs a bit more, but is more frequent. Wessex (UniConnect) is cheaper but less frequent. So take your pick.

    Yay, finally some other people applying for Chemistry! I applied for Chemistry for Drug Discovery (MChem) and I sent in my application on 15th October. Have either of you heard anything back from Bath yet? If you have, when did you send your application in? And where else have you both applied to?

    Ahah, I don't know if I'll get an interview, only applying there because I have nothing to lose by doing so (Je sais pas si j'aurais un entretien, j'ai seulement demandé Oxford parce que j'avais rien à perdre)
