    I'm really really REALLY old

    (dogs have to be on a lead at the beach over the summer http://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/Attrac...uidelines.aspx and in the gardens all year round - they're really strict about it)
    Yeah they definitely will be - my sister has even gone as far as getting a doggy pushchair for one of them :rolleyes:

    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

    I don't want to check - I'd rather get my results first.

    I'm surprised at people who can actually muster up the courage to check track before they get their grades - I'm very much an 'ignorance is bliss' kind of person... also, if I checked before I got my results and something undesirable appeared, I'd be panicking all the way to school lmao
