    Just a random wondering, does everyone's school seem to have 'favourite' unis that people want to go to?
    Why do you think this is or isn't?

    At my school a lot of people this year want to go to Lincoln or Northumbria, mainly because of their locations and the grades they require.

    Anyone else noticed any trends at their school?

    I think it's because people don't want to be too far away from home.

    From my school last year the most popular choices were Nottingham, Southampton, Oxford, Durham, York and Exeter. Nottingham won hands down, with 10 or so of us firming offers. 3 of us actually got in on results day, I dropped out 2 months later. Haha.

    Sheffield seems to be the one of choice for the last few years, about 10 each year. After that there isn't really a trend, usually uni's surrounding the Midlands.
