    I its relevant look at the costs you'll be facing, maybe that would sway your decision.
    I cant speak for Imperial, though Ive lived in Bristol, visited Bristol Uni and have applied there myself, its an amazing place to live, beautiful city and smashing night life. You'll definitely love it there! Maybe there are some forums on Imperial uni? You always have time for an open day, so maybe u can make it a trip with a few friends to test the nightlife and area as well...

    Nah I haven't. The only place I've been on an open day to is Derby. I fancy checking out Sheffield Hallam though on a post-offer open day, or possibly DMU....Not sure which I'd prefer. I'm going to have a good hard think about my choices, I have friends who know people at SHU who say it is great, but DMU seems pretty good too.

    Could anyone help me correct this email? im not a native english speaker..so if there are any spelling or grammar mistakes please tell me! THANK YOU A LOT!

    Dear admission office,
    My name is Lisa Muster and my Personal ID is *********. I applied for the course ****.
    Due to the change in the exams I am going to take for the Austrian Matura I feel obliged to inform you that the 7 subjects for my finals are history, sociology and political science (oral), Latin (oral), French (written), English (oral), English (written), Mathematics (written) and German (written).
    In my application I only entered the exams for the Matura. However, I was later told that I should have listed all the subjects for this year.
    Apart from the subjects mentioned above I am also studying geography and economics, Chinese, chemistry, physics, psychology and philosophy, communication, music and PE at school.
    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience I have caused.
    Kind regards,

    I know how you feel. Manchester rejected me a week after I sent off my UCAS form. And it was the first uni to hear from...
    But anyway a week later I got an offer from Exeter.... so It's darkest before the dawn, you know

    Good luck.... Manchester doesn't deserve us apparently

    Well, no, in fact she has got it right, as she is talking about subjects not courses. So, her list "geography and economics, Chinese, chemistry, physics, psychology and philosophy, communication, music and PE" is correctly written.

    I agree with you about 'apologise' though
