    Hi, so here's my story so far...

    I'm currently a year 13 student planning on going to uni next academic year. Last October I applied for Neuroscience (and for Natural Sciences at Cambridge). I got 4A's at AS level and I am predicted A*A*A for A2.

    I got rejected from Cambridge (as expected) but also got rejected from UCL - my top choice (due to there being only ~35 places on the course). UCL, along with the rejection, offered me a place on their Pharmacology course which I wasn't too keen on. So I was stuck between choosing between Bristol and Kings and eventually settled for Bristol (not yet firmed).

    Last Thursday however, UCL emailed me deciding to give me an offer for Biomedical Sciences but I only have till this MONDAY (22nd April) to decide. So I am asking for your opinion on what I should do; Neuroscience at Bristol or BioMed at UCL? Please mention what uni you go to and what you're studying unless you are still at school.


    Just to note: Neuroscience at UCL share a lot of the modules with BioMed and there is a chance I can switch onto the Neuroscience course in the 2nd year (but not guaranteed). If not I can still do Neuroscience related modules. I understand UCL is a better uni but I do kinda want to move out of London. Please comment on the social aspects of the uni as well and generally what living in London/Bristol means. Thank you and sorry for the long post.
