    Sounds like you had another good open day! Which one did you like so far, Exeter or Royal Holloway?

    Your open days so far are better than mine, especially when you have sample lectures!
    Which ones did you go to? I liked them both for different reasons. I thought exeter was a lot better organisied but Royal holloway was more informative.

    Lincoln, UWE, Luton (went to the open day for fun, as I have nothing to do :p: ), and Salford. UWE and Lincoln provided a good open day as everything is organised and the talks were informative. In addition, we had a campus tour around the classes, facilities, and accomodation.

    For Salford, it was good, but it's not really an open day, it was a post-application open day for my course and I was the only one there (i.e. a VIP :p: ). I thought there would be more than one person going. It's quite good, as the lecturers talked about my course in detail, followed by two students taking me around the campus, facilities and accomodation. Overall, it was good. Find it quite weird to be the only one though.

    Cool. I hope you enjoy your next open days, and soon decide which 6 uni's you would apply too! In addition, I would look forward reading your blog about your open days.

    You're welcome.

    You should put up for personal statement on studential, so prospective students could have a look at yours to see what should be included in a particular subject you are studying. Make sure you submitted your personal statement to UCAS first before you post it in Studential.

    You're welcome. Yeah, putting pcitures on the Studential site will help. Taking the pictures of the accomodation would be a good one too. I just hope some uni website put more pictures up about their campuses/buildings and stuff like that.

    I bookmarked your blog, as I'm interested in reading your open day stuff. I'm looking forward to reading your next few open days blogs.
