    Well I've applied, but I wouldn't say it's my firm. However, that depends on what offers I get (oh, and grades of course).

    Have you already received an offer from them? What did you apply for?

    Yes I have put it as my firm choice. My offer is to achieve grade A in sociology or psychology as I already have AB in Law and Biology

    Haha! I'm hoping for AAA! The A* criteria is a little crazy so I don't pretend to understand it. I know you need 90% in something or other.

    i can't help but look at any posts about Reading, bit biased really
    I was so excited when I got my offer so could have it as a firm choice!
    It's worth aiming for those scholarships Mine was £2000 for AAA which should be good for my year abroad! (but then a year and a half ago we couldn't get A* haha!)

    It really is a great campus, and Reading is a nice place in general, and the night life is good too ;P

    Do you do law at Reading???? :holmes: Yeah I'd prefer the scholarship criteria to be AAA, much easier, but I suppose aiming for an A* will keep me on my toes....
