    Its getting to about the time when people know where they're going next year to study the greatest subject ever so thought it would be a good idea to make a thread where people can put which unis they have firmed. Hopefully this should allow people to get in contact with people on the same courses!

    I'll start:

    Be sensible and don't pick an insurance with the same offer as your firm.

    Haha, it's too late! Going to go through clearing otherwise. I really don't want to go to UCA.
    My Careers advisor said it would be the best thing to do in my situation, I trust her. (although it wasn't a decision I came to lightly!)

    Very few architecture places open up in clearing, I only saw two last year Sheffield Hallem and Queen's Belfast.

    This year is not a good time to not get the place you're after.

    I'd go with the latter.

    When you say latter it means the last one i said. Therefore defying the fact that you advised Westminster, and telling me to go for Kingston. Also Kingston is not a waste of money, and as a matter of fact has a really good reputation amongst architects.
