    i am really lost with my life. i got A*AA in maths, further maths and physics and i am going to uni of birmingham to do maths. unis like durham never gave an offer, stupid how i got the requirement.
    yes i know uni of bham is not a good uni, blah blah and thats why i am scared. i want to do IB but all i keep hearing is that they look at what uni you go to.

    just say if i get a first at UOB, would i have any chance at all? should i even try to go for IB?

    But seriously hes doing Maths and has great A level grades so that should not be a problem at all.

    Birmingham is still a top uni.

    are you an expert on this IB stuff? I plan to do really well on the first 3 years (hopefully get a first) and then go to a really good uni like Warwick or whatever and do my masters there. for IB, what do they look at more, the uni where you do bsc or masters? IB is a graduate job isn't it...?

    Wouldn't say im an expert, but yeh try get a first and make sure you apply to every internships you possibly can for spring week and then in the summer. One you got those you can try get on a graduate scheme for one you finish uni. Ofcourse if you're gonna do a masters then thats up to you but I wouldn't really say it makes a huge difference tbh.

    Just find relevant work experience. People should stop starting these retarded target vs. non target threads, if I come across a CV with good work experience I won't give a flying **** if they go to a target or not.

    Exactly.

    Birmingham is a good uni, do some networking and get work experience and you'll have a decent shot

    Yes, ideally, you would have done it on Thursday, but seeing as it is still listed and other courses have disappeared, I imagine you should be ok. Both 3 year and 4 year are still open

    Best of luck!
