    Cardiff feels a lot more like a city than Bournemouth (capital city v a large tourist town - outside the summer the population is a lot smaller) - it's not a lot of walking (and is mainly flat) to loop round (less than 1 mile). I'd recommend parking at the pavilion if you can (http://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/Parkin...onCarPark.aspx ) it's cheaper than the beach car parks (even though they say they're long stay) and is easier to find again if you're not familiar with the town and you'll be near a lot of choices to get food/drink.
    How do you know so much? I'll definitely tell Mum about the parking, thanks! She's decided to bring 2 dogs with her too, one of which I have never met.

    if there are you're more likely to find them posting in the King's College London, University of Warwick or London School of Economics forums

    I will be applying for Physics (2017 entry), and some of the universities I am considering (Soton, Exeter, and KCL) are in clearing for this course. I thought these universities were pretty good, but does them being in clearing for this particular course maybe mean they aren't as good as I thought?

    Thanks

    Physics applications nationally have plummeted over the last few years. The only universities that have bucked the decline in demand have been Manchester (brian cox effect), Imperial (mainly international applicants) and oxbridge (because oxbridge - and a lot of mathmos think it'll be easier to get in to physics).

    Those universities aren't going to scrap their physics departments so they need to pull in students. A lot of people don't apply to those universities first time round because they have BBB or lower predictions but then get A/B in maths and physics and trade up through clearing. Likewise some applicants change their mind from engineering to physics after applying. There's usually a decent number of applicants in clearing for physics with good grades so it's worthwhile being in the game to find an extra 5-10 students.

    TLR version of the above: popular != good. Clearing vacancies don't indicate anything about the quality of either the course or the students accepted.

    Question: Do any of you know people/are themselves people who aren't checking track before they receive their results? I'm really interested as to what people's reasons are for it.

    ...Like I personally don't have the self-control to do that so I admire people who are waiting till after their results...track should update an hour before I can even go to my college and it would be internally nagging at me if I knew that I could find out if a uni has taken me and I was simply ignoring it
