    Got an offer from Durham but haven't heard anything from Imperial yet... I will be choosing between these two I think... If I get an offer from Imperial I'm not sure which to choose. Imperial is about 3-4 hours closer, which is a factor... But they both seem so similar reputation-wise but in very different locations. Help please? Haha

    I'd go for Imperial.

    Being in London it'll give you better job prospects due to all of the connections and networking it could offer you.

    Might do! Hopefully I get an offer from them! I've never visited Durham though so I've got no idea if I'll even like it there I wouldn't mind an offer from imperial no matter what the conditions are

    Is there a chance there any chance UCL could hand out any more open day invitations or offers? My friend is going to the open day tomorrow, I didn't get a invite. Worried now 😩

    I've just received an offer from UCL. AAB. Reaally confused though as I've got an interview on Wednesday? I called them and they confirmed the offer is correct but I've still got to go on Wednesday. Has this happened to anybody else?
    I also have an offer for UCL, for Theoretical Physics MSci. I had my interview last Wednesday and i got some quite tough questions (I had to derive maxwells equations. Managed to trudge through that quite well, and it was really quite fun. My interviewer was brilliant). Now I am waiting for the date of my invitation to the departmental open day. I assume your wednesday open day is one of those.
    Anyway, enjoy, its really a great Uni.

    I have an A*A*A offer from Imperial which I'm going to firm, but I don't know which to insure out of Bristol AAB or A*AA for Warwick and Birmingham. I think I'm swaying towards Bristol. Opinions on these grades and universities?
    Anyone else in the position to firm/insure their offers? If so, what are your choices?

    As an international student, I got unconditional from Glasgow and conditional from Edinburgh (just need to submit my test scores since I've already met their requirement- pretty much an unconditional). Message me if you are thinking of going to Edinburgh
    And to others, good luck!

    My name is Sruthy (female, yes =D )
    I've applied to UCL, Edinburgh, Kent, Surrey and Hull (back-up)
    I thought I would put Hull as my back up, but I want to go to Kent so badly IF I don't get offers from UCL or Edinburgh (I haven't heard back from them yet, I've got offers from the rest!)
    I've taken Maths, Biology and Physics. I take 2 online courses on Astrobiology and I am doing my EPQ on how knowledge of life on Earth aids research in Astrobiology. I think you know which field of Astrophysics I'm most interested in
    I had plenty of other unis' prospectii as well but these were my top choices!
    I am so excited to study Astrophysics at uni, just 3-4 years one the one thing I love the most!!!!

    If you're sure you can get at least one A* then go for Warwick or Bham as insurance, but if you have any doubt then go for Bristol.
    I live in Bristol atm and I think it would be a great place to go to uni, it's a nice place overall and theres a lot going on.
    I haven't seen Warwick but the Birmingham department was top-notch and everyone seemed real friendly. With Warwick I think most people have to live quite far away after first year so that's a negative to think about, although I know someone who just finished a physics degree there and overall she liked it.
    I hope that's helped in some way :P

    Woo well done! The interviews there seem really chilled out - I think it's almost as much about being able to look at the facilities and stuff at imperial, which are all really lovely. I got asked a couple of questions on my PS and then a nice mechanics question. Though I'm not sure if it's different applying post-A Level. Good luck!!

    I'd say if anything my Imperial interview was harder than my Cambridge one :lol:

    Maybe it depends on who interviews you

    Really? Weird! Maybe it does depend on the interviewer, though you'd think they would try to make it fair :s

    The maths in it was far harder although the interviewer told me that it wasn't usually that hard, just that I'd got through the first questions quickly so she moved onto harder ones.

    I know a girl who got interviewed in late October and still hasn't heard...
