    This is a forum for Year 12 students (who like me) have already started thinking about a specific course they are interested in. Even more better if any of my fellow Year 12s have thought of specific choices of Universities.
    This forum is a great way to get advice before we return after Summer and submit applications to UCAS.
    Whether you are interested in:
    Medical school
    Maths
    Economics
    English literature
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Business
    American Studies
    History
    Politics
    Geography
    Dance
    Music
    Foreign Language
    Sports Management
    Education

    This is a great way to just communicate and talk to others who may be interested in the same course as you.

    Hey, I'm in year 12 too and would like to study either Geography or English Literature at university, not sure which one yet. Since I'm the eldest in my family I have no idea how all of this University applying process works! I haven't really decided on a particular university yet but my favourites are Exeter, Sussex and Southampton. What course are you thinking of studying, and what universities are your favourites?

    hey katie! Thats a problem i think we're all going to face till the very moment we decide on our firm and insurance haha! I think we start applying when we return to school after Summer. Im definitely going to visit some open days, cause when you get on the campus you can just feel whether its right for you...prospectuses, photos can only do so much as we just see what the university wants us to see

    Hey peeps

    This is a great idea

    I hope to study medicine and have narrowed my choices down to about 9/10 unis..so a long way to go yet!!

    I'm going to open days soon, have already been to Nottingham and Cambridge is close but want to have a look at Edinburgh and St. Andrews, and lotssss of others

    My decision making skills are lacking slightly when it comes to things like this...I just hope I can decide eventually lol

    In our school we return after AS exams on June 10th to start Ucas and personal statement things

    Ah sounds good, I can't wait to get the ball rolling, I'm always thinking about and researching unis, watching campus tours, looking at accomodation, and most of my friends haven't even thought about it yet! I'm such a uni nerd but I just can't wait

    Oh my gosh, same! I love watching the video campus tours too haha Aw that's cool, I think Sussex just looks really nice! I'm currently studying English Literature, Geography, Psychology and R.E. January exams were a bit of a flop for me I got a B in my R.E which I'm getting remarked and a C in my Psychology which I am re-sitting this summer! I didn't revise enough so I guess it's my own fault! What subjects did you take and what grades did you get?

    I keep changing my mind about where I want to go too! Yes I'm definitely planning to go to open days this summer! I'm not sure when we start applying? When we go back to school in September probably, because don't applications (those that aren't Oxbridge and medicine) have to be in by January or something?

    I think it looks lovely too How far are you hoping to move? For me, it'd be 350 miles if I went to Newcastle! I'm doing English Lit, R.E and Media Studies. I got an A in my January RE exam! I was really pleased. I didn't have any other exams, I was supposed to have an English but Cardiff had a lot of snow the night before and I couldn't leave my house so I'm having to do it in June. Don't be too hard on yourself, no one at all in my year passed their Psychology exam!

    Well I live up north, near Yorkshire so moving down south to somewhere like Sussex would be quite a way, not sure how far! Wow congrats on your A! I only have one English Lit exam this year and it's in June too. Have you done any coursework in English? Yeah I found the Psychology paper really hard, but most people at my school got A's and B's. Hopefully when I re-sit I will too!
