    Im stuck on where to choose! I liked the look of all of them, here are the grade requirements

    Surrey:ABB
    Reading:BBB
    Brunel:BCC

    I know looking at grades it may be evident which is best, however, I want to know what YOU think. I am predicted AAB and I already have a B in Politics which I did in a year.

    I'm not a entirely academically focused person and want a social experience aswell,
    thanks!

    Entry requirement for Surrey is BBB. I am applying there and just checked.

    The university with higher requirements are not necessary offering the better course.

    I am applying to Surrey and Reading - I do not know which is best but Reading is better than Surrey in terms of social life.

    Both are top 30, and they are comparable to each other. I don't think Brunel is at the same level as them but yeah, I find course at Reading much more interesting than Surrey.

    No grade entry is ABB. I have an offer of ABB because they have far too many applicants. A guy I was with at the UCAS day was the year above me and had BBB at A Level and got a rejection.

    Ahh I see, so the entry requirement on the website has not changed. But the offer that you recieved is ABB. They are likely to give me ABB offer then - that's only if they do want me XD

    Omg, this is ruining my insurance!

    I know i'm bias but I would say Reading. The reason I say that is not only that I go there but I think Reading's politics department has been running alot longer than Surrey's. Also Surrey has a very strong focus on social policy however if you want a more generalised politics/IR degree then you should consider Reading. Furthermore, after KCL and Oxford, Reading has some of the leading experts on strategic studies e.g. Colin Gray and Beatrice Heuser, it also has some world experts on democratization and electoral systems as well as British politics.

    If your interested in social policy = Surrey
    If your interested in many aspects of politics and IR = Reading
