Good rep. universities Watch
For my 5 uni options im thinking of putting 3 safer options along with 2 slightly better ones. Im currently deciding between Edinburgh, Durham, Newcastle and York, and I know that they're all really picky.
Could anyone who knows about any of these unis (or their english courses) please give me some positives/negatives to help me make up my mind? Some applicantslaces stats would also be great if at all possible.
Durham is probably the most competitive of all three but is very good, Edinburgh is also very picky but I've also heard some poor stories about student satisfaction.
I'd pick Durham and York, they're in very similar parts of the world and are both very good for English and have more in common course wise than say Durham and Edinburgh.
