    pfff :rolleyes:, some people are just lucky enough to hae teacherss who ram this importance down their throat i suppose
    :lol: I didn't really think they were important in the long run but it's more how you're doing relative to your peers. Quite a few unis use the contextual data which is available through this other channel or something I know Bristol and Oxford are but not sure about the others

    Oh! and consider applying abroad where it may be cheaper depending on your financial circumstances. The Ivy's and Liberal Arts Colleges in America are very generous! (well the need-blind ones anyway)

    Also Rotterdam + other European ones but studying abroad isn't for everyone I guess.

    Bath. Try and get your work placement abroad. Sorted

    (Original post by Tateco)
    They are both so even that I think going with Bath will give you the opportunity to get in with the big companies which are likely to have opportunities abroad.
    Thanks guys, I'll definetly give it some thought.

    Hmm I don't know... Cambridge 3rd place behind Oxford? I think Cambridge has the best Economics department when it comes to undergraduate studies. I don't kknow the website's criteria but this ranking might be based on postgraduate studies? Then it would make sense to me. But as we all know, don't trust rankings. It's hard to measure quality since universities are so different from each other.

    Ah sounds confusing, well done though! I did go for en suite in the end, I did quite well out of student finance grants so decided to treat myself. Saying that, it is my first preference so I might end up not getting it, that's no big deal though
    Thanks unfortunately I won't be able to receive any grants at all because I am not a British citizen (although it's only fair, why should I get your taxpayers' money as a foreigner? ) so I will depend on my parents. But my father promised me that I'll get an en suite if I get a job or something unless I get allocated to a shared one. When I stayed at Oxford I had to share a bathroom with 6 people and it was okay. I suppose it depends on the people that you share it with

    I wouldn't take much notice of them, especially if you look along the right hand side, from 6th-16th the overall score differs by less than 5 points, shows how close they are really!

    Ah I'm sure you'll manage, having an en suite is no big deal anyway, just an extra luxury!

    This table put my Insurance above my Firm. Quite depressing :coma:

    I don't know if I should apply again next year. Depends on grades I guess. I thought I was smart enough to get into a university of my choice but I feel like I have failed :dots:

    Well don't read into it too much, they vary yearly. And im sure the vast majority of people would've gone to Oxbridge over LSE regardless of what the table says.

    Personally the only two important figures are graduate prospects (to an extent) and entry standards!

    Graduate prospects isn't reliable, the figures on that table also differs from official figures from the university which seems stupid. I agree entry standards is quite a good indicator

    Basically what Tat and Funky have said, it doesn't change the fact that they have strong relations with employers like the BoE, Morgan Stanley, Ernst & Young etc

    This year's table seems really distorted. I don't think Exeter or Edinburgh are better universities than Bath tbh
