    Okay I've got offers from:
    Royal Holloway AAB
    Queen Mary's ABB
    Reading ABB
    Brunel 300 ucas points

    I've applied for Pychology. My AS grades were AAA (bio, psych and history). This Jan I got 100% in Psych and a B in Biology. I'm aiming for an A* in Psych, and A in bio and history.

    Okay so which uni do you think is best for my firm choice regarding how good the uni is in general and how good it is for psychology. ANY advice is much appreciated because I'm really confused.
    Thanks =]

    They are in such different locations that you really need to visit them.

    For Psychology? Easily Royal Holloway. Definitely the best Psych department there.

    Just ask GodSpeedGhenna

    If you're asking based on university as a whole, I'm biased but I'd say Queen Mary!

    If you're asking based on course, Royal Holloway ranks higher for psychology (QM hasn't done it for that long...two years, I think?)

    So, those would be the two I'd put down, firm the one that has the most important attribute.

    For Psychology specifically, RHUL is by FAR the best. Around top 10 in the country. In general though they're all roughly evenly matched, so you may as well visit them all as some people don't like the location of Royal Holloway.

    Royal Holloway probably has the best reputation.

    Although really just depends on the feeling you get when you visit each uni.

    Also shud think about how far away you want to live from home, the social life there, living costs etc.

    (btw, nice result in ur jan Psych exam)
