    It's worth visiting though - the city is amazing and the area with the university is pretty sweet. I'm fairly close to Bristol so can get train tickets there for £12 off-peak. Had a nice uni tour on Friday with FREE ICE-CREAM
    lolololol it costs £50 off peak for me + 3 hours, not worth visiting unless it actually ends up being my firm choice

    Depends on:

    1. What A levels you're studying
    2. What course you are applying for - straight maths, maths/physics, 3/4 years

    Surrey offer ABB for BSc if you are studying further maths as far as I am aware:

    Sorry that wasn't extremely helpful was it

    See I was orginally going to apply to liverpool but when I went on the open day I wasnt too keen :/ What did you think to it?

    My predicted grades are AAB but I think i'm more likely to get ABB so wanted to kind of cover my back. I'm already applying to 1 ABB, 1 BBB 2 AAB so and for the fifith I had another AAB but i think its too risky....

    You arent applying to leicester as well are you?

    Aberdeen looks for ABB for second-year entry, and BBB for normal first-year entry. Strathclyde want AAB for second-year entry and say that if your grades are a bit low for second-year entry they'll often give you an offer for first-year entry.

    Those are the only prospectuses I have at hand which would be likely to want ABB.

    Well the majority of the students are scottish and for example at the finance talk they did practically the whole thing for scottish students as their fees are different then talked pracitcally 5 mins about rest of UK..... :/
    Plus scotland is a long way away from where I live and the uni is out of town...
