    Hi all,

    I have been lucky enough to get an offer from Newcastle and Exeter for economics- I am not bragging btw. I just genuinely want some help as to which one to pick as my firm choice. Also any pros or cons of each uni and also any personal experiences. They are the same grade offer and also I have never been to either uni. Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Well done! I got rejected.

    I'd go for Exeter but you have made the same mistake as I did in not going to your universities!

    Also I hear up there, the Geordies know how to have fun, whether it is the right kind of fun really depends...

    I don't have any personal experience but it seemed to have much more friendlier atmosphere and environment. I prefer Newcastle as a big city scene rather than a small town as Exeter. I intend to do a foundation year in September and have offers from both so I looked into both of them even though haven't been to an open day.
