    My best friend has also applied for a Psychology course there; she's predicted ABB.
    We both got conditional offers;
    mine - ABB
    friend's - AAB
    Also, I've done a couple of work experiences which I have included in my personal statement (including w.exp with a Psychologist) whereas, she has not done any work experience/voluntary work. & Her app was sent off 2 weeks before mine.
