    Applying for a university to use as an insurance knowing fully well if I ended up going there I would drop out because I hated it when I visited. I guess it is just more motivatin to get my firm now.

    I did this too- I'll be gutted if that's where i end up on results day. Definitely extra motivation though!

    Pulling out of Edinburgh last minute because this stupid woman from Edinburgh uni came into the school and basically told us all not to bother applying because it's so hard to get in to. I got offers from everywhere else I applied and subsequently after dropping out of Edinburgh, applied for two similar courses at the same uni, which was a stupid idea. Grr..

    I regret applying to Manchester met (only applied as a place filler) and wasting a choice haha :P
    Had an interview and absolutely hated the place - tutors were so rude -.-
    Other than that I don't really have any regrets, maybe applying for such an oversubscribed course?
    I applied for adult nursing and got rejected by All unis so have no entered Extra. Kinda looking at it as a blessing now though!
    However I made my first application through extra today for
    Bsc Extended Science at Plymouth - rather excited, wish me luck
