    Ble yn y Rhondda, WelshBluebird?

    Also.. good taste in universities.

    Southampton was on my shortlist, and Bath would've been if they'd done my course. So I'm applying to Warwick and Durham instead. Good luck!

    I would try to answer in welsh, but I'm pretty rubbish at it (which I'm kind of ashamed of. Defiantly something I would like to try to learn more of in later life).

    From Ton Pentre (Rhondda Fawr) (but tbh, I'm looking forward to going to uni to get out of here lol. Yes, I'll always want to come back cos its where I've grown up. But in all reality - its not that great, and I certainly wouldn't any of my kids growing up here).

    There's quite a few people applying to Warwick and Durham in my school, only me to Bath and Southampton and most people seem to just be going for Glamorgan, cardiff, UWIC, Swansea etc.

    Anyways, good luck to everyone (unless your my competition :p:)
