    Basically the title! Looking to do English at Newcastle and English/Philosophy at Liverpool; both ask for AAB with an A in English. I have A*AB, but the B is in English and am resitting and hoping to get an A! I know Liverpool was in Clearing this year, but which one would you say I had more chance at? And this will actually be my last thread asking for advice on universities :o:

    Being straight English, as opposed to a joint degree, I would imagine Newcastle would be more competitive from a simple applications per place point of view.

    Newcastle also has the inflated popularity due to its status as the current student and party capital.

    This doesn't mean it is better than Liverpool as the difference between the two (well, most of the Russell Group) is negligible.

    Cheers, decided on Liverpool as I liked the city better and hope I have a chance of getting in :o:
