    With no disrespect to either of the universities mentioned, with A*AA predicted, why aren't you going for something a little higher up the rankings?

    Because a degree from them is worhtless.

    Unlike GCSE's which have only a few examination boards for the entire country, none being better than the other, the quality of a degree comes down to your grade and the university it is from.
    Both those two uni's are usless, and Bangor I know is full of socially inept retards. Y'know that kid who smells so bad he stinks out entire rooms? Or the kid that is so pale he must actively walk in shadows & keep his curtains shut?Yeah, that's the kind of person who goes to Bangor.

    Have you actually studied Psychology at Bangor before? If not then don't say crap like this ever again. I spent the first year of my degree in Bangor and I can tell you that it's excellent for Psychology. It's also reputable for Business, Accounting and Finance, Sports Science and Nursing.

    Needed to be closer to London due to problems back at home and nightlife is pretty dead in Bangor.

    ...Yeah a dingy Welsh tiny city is a decent place compared to, say, Mogadishu, but not to most other cities.

    It's 34 for Psychology making it one of the leading non-redbricks for psychology, but that's still not exactly very good, and certainly not worth the tuition fees. It's 46 for Business and management studies.
    For nursing it's 14 & 6 for sports studies, which is basically where the decent red bricks stop offering the courses because they are mickey-mouse degrees.

    So instead of saying childish comments like "Don't say crap like this ever again" how about you do your research before going to a university? Though of course if you had that level of intelligence I'm sure you wouldn't have gone to Bangor...Just a thought.
