    Hammersmith is usually on fire.

    Tower Hamlets probably the least ideal.

    Most ideal, probably somewhere like Twickenham (I'm a rugby fan so I'm biased) :p:

    Hackney? Nice? In the same sentence?
    Depends, all inner city areas have nice and horrible areas like Drogue said.

    The areas around Hackney Downs, London Fields, Old Street, Hoxton, Shoreditch etc are quite nice, as are parts of Dalston. Then again Stamford Hill and Clapton are horrible. Depends where you go in Hackney :dontknow:

    My school's in Twickenham! But, to be honest, Richmond is better! I wouldn't like to live in Twickenham. It's awful getting around the place, especially when there's a match on. Very noisy.

    Same. I live in Ealing and it's fairly average. The good thing is everything you need, it's a maximum of two bus rides away.
    Waheyy Ealing, most of my friends live there. Ealing's not too bad you have quite a few things to do there - better than Ickenham where I live.

    Generally inner West (ie. Kensington, Chelsea, Knightsbridge) and outer South-West (Richmond, parts of Kingston, Hampton) are rather nice, but I fail to see how Hammersmith ,of all places, could be seen as your ideal place to live. It's really quite a depressing place.

    i'm doing modern american. its very exciting, it's my best subject so i don't find it hard. the drop-out rate compared to modern european isn't as bad because people generally like it more.

    You don't wanna live in Old Southall. It's near Ealing, comes under South West London. Awful place.
    Just avoid Old Southall.
    Could be worse, could be Hayes.

    Yes, that's what I'll be doing! I've heard it's really difficult to get an A. I'm sure it'll be interesting, but is it difficult to get like an A grade?

    yes, only a handful of people have gotten an A in the AS (first-sit). but personally, i didn't find it hard. getting an A depends soley on your literary abilities and general knowledge; if you have that than the content will come easily, like with most things.

    I see. So, it's doable. Just with your own hard work?

    I'd say anywhere on the outskirts is better than living in central London. So probably somewhere like Kingston. OP what makes you like Islington, I find it a dump!

    Peckham? Elephant and Castle?

    Are you sure you haven't made a mistake? Peckham ain't too bad but no where near is it a good place to live. I'd rather live it up in a posh area than to stay here.
    Not as nice as the Bronx in NY

    Don't say a word against Richmond, mister!!!! Peckham? Really?!
