Advice on choosing universityWatch
Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Heriot-Watt, St Andrews, Aberdeen and I will maybe add one in Wales - Cardiff.
I think I will apply to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Cardiff for sure, but I can't decide my 4th and 5th choices.
I like St Andrews but I plan to find a part-time job, so I guess I should apply to larger cities. Also, about St Andrews and Aberdeen, I read that they are expensive, is that true?
I looked some league tables and Heriot-Watt, Strathclyde and Aberdeen are a little behind - like 40+. Should I be concerned about that?
I would really appreciate it if you could share any information about these universities and most importantly if you know what offers I can expect. Thanks in advance.
Just wish to ask, are you from an EU country or actually international as your fee status tends to have a reasonable impact on whether you get an offer or not unfortunately.
As I see their minimum is 5.5 in the majority of school leaving subjects and state examinations including required subjects. I have that.
Their typical offer is 5.8 in the majority of school leaving subjects and state examinations and 6.0 in all required subjects.
We have a total of 20 subjects studied during secondary education. And then 2+1 optional state examinations. I expect final grade 6.0 (which is the max grade) in 17 of the subjects and 5.5 in Literature, 5.25 Spanish, 5.75 Maths. In the State examinations I think I will have about 5.1 in the first (this one is in no way relevant to chemistry, though), 6.0 in a Chemistry state exam, 5.8 in an English state exam.
In the end, when I calculate my overall grade (not average) I got 5.85.
