AAB- trying for Sociology through Adjustment, wheres worth looking? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I originally applied for Religious Studies at Chester (BCC) but upon receiving my results I got AAB!!!

    I got 99/100 in my recent Sociology paper and it's a subject I do really enjoy (people and the way they live in general interest me), so I feel like this is what I'm best off studying.

    I'm just so stuck as to where I should be thinking about phoning? I actually went down to The University of Sussex today and can't say I was a big fan- I don't find London to be a very nice place and Brighton it's self at night was something of a horror movie- I'd already seen two drunk fights and a woman peeing in the street before I'd even got off the coach.

    I want somewhere friendly yet academically challenging at the same time. Preferably as far AWAY from London as possible (I'm from Bradford and I can't deal with it).

    So basically where's good for sociology?

    Congratulations on your results! I'm not too sure how the whole Adjustment thing works, but do recommend that you take a gap year and reapply in September if you are not successful. With AAB and wanting to do Sociology you can get into a good university, most Russell group unis offer Sociology for AAB-ABB. Maybe have a look at universities like Bath, Manchester, Sheffield and Exeter - all quite far from London and apparently have good Sociology departments. Good luck

    Well done!

    I think Bath is quite good for sociology and they're asking for AAB - BBB - places still available, apparently!
