    Even with 3 C's avoid Westminster and TVU like a plague, I know somebody that got into Westminster with one E and D in AVCE ICT.

    Don't undersell yourself because you will regret when you find you're doing an easy degree that appears worthless. APU and Kings are probably much better and will give you the challange you will probably need.

    You know it's not nice to make jokes like that. Some people really are going to those universities and it's not nice to mock them.

    On the other hand if you ARE serious (don't worry love, it's not too late) you really should aim higher with your grades you can reach for the SKY!!!!!! Thames Valley is number 100 on the rankings and employers don't give a rats arse at how well the particular subject ranks on it's own, it the uni as a whole that matters. It's a superficial world out there, I know. All of the uni's you've chosen are really low ranking. You can do better, but only if you want to. If you are happy going to those universities then go for it.

    You were joking though, weren't you? 3 A's??? c'mon?!!?!

    listen u premature headed twit, its obvious that ur a joker and wasted a whole thread and ppls time just to give you advise when ur just messin, we aint dumb, ur not a smart russian kid who chose the worst uni and has no knowledge of uk unis, cause

    1) ur name gives the game away, especially the 'uk' part
    2) doubt you would be able to find this website and not find league tables or such
    3) ur doin british qualifications in russia without having knowledge of unis in the uk? (not likely)
    4) quote ''What am i to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /quote - try growin up

    ooh boy ---attention seeking morons really REALLY annoy me......worse than flies

    ''if i were u, i would choose london ucl. You are most likely to find people u like there. In terms of nightlife edinburgh is overated and when it comes to expense it almost as expensive as london still £3 a pint in bars. Edinburgh is prettty though but do u want to hang around with mostly scots and public school kids. I think not.Go to UCL. If u want a city and u want to have fun go to london.You might have to get a part time job as well but is worth it.Best night life in europe and u will be with international students. U will like it and just avoid brighton that is a dump.I hope my advice is of use. personally i want to go to boston when i finish my studies in the uk,london''

    International student prospectuses strike again.
    TVU probably spend about 97% of their entire budget on things to go overseas, they can't shed the bad rep they have over here
