    I dont think I will be because I want to travel further afield, further than 45mins by car anyway I have experienced a part of student life there and I must say I very much enjoyed it !! (I stayed at a friends house who is at York and went for a night out)
    Oh i see. well fair enough!
    I love it here but I'm said to say I didnt reply because ive lived nowhere else in my life!

    What shall I pick for an insurance between southampton and lancaster? (they want the same grades)
    I think they're pretty even, maybe Southampton edges Lancaster though/ Take a look at the courses, I know Lancaster is quite bent towards statistics. Something I should have look at prior to choosing it because I really want to do mostly pure.

    great response, thanks!! about my profile, i wrote that when i was sure about imperial. since then however i have been slightly worried about the student social life and the bad male to female ratio for males! As you have said, imperial has a greater maths rep (COWI and all that) so I will be firming imperial (or durham which I will decide on when I visit in March). My head says imperial will benefit my career, as I want to work in the city. And my heart, well I think its my 'heart', says Durham because I enjoying achieving, but also partying and enjoying my self
    If it helps - I went to Imperial and had a great time there (in fact, bizarrely one of the reasons I chose Imperial was because I knew I'd have a good time there). I won't pretend everyone had as good a time there as I did but most of my friends loved it there too.

    We also knew how to party and have a good time (in fact, those of us who didn't go to lectures in the later years ended up doing better than those that studied all the time - I missed about 90% of my lectures in my fourth year and did absolutely fine in my degree).

    Please don't think of Imperial as merely a place to just do work!

    For those of you who didn't apply to Imperial or aren't firming/insuring, the wider point is that you will have a good time at almost any university you go to, so long as you go with an open mind and make the most of the opportunity.

    Finally, as stupid as this sounds, please don't pick your university based on supposed career prospects. The last few years have shown me that what university you go to has little bearing on your career progression. Some of the people I work with didn't go to a COWI university but they sure as heck know their stuff and can certainly deal with anything my job throws at them. I guess it goes back to my point of making the best of wherever you end up.

    No no it was edexcel C3. But everyone in my year (even the year 9 who sat the exam with us), found it different/harder than any other paper!
    Fingers crossed!

    Oh, I suppose you come to the Wednesday classes too then?! Ah right I see, yeah I forgot the notation at first but I got it quickly enough. He did remind us but he gave the really indepth explanation, but still A-level mind.
