    What subject choice?

    AAB to cambridge?? thats weird, since they only accept people in who have at the least AAA.

    I'm doing mechanical engineering at

    1st choice = Bristol (ABB)
    2nd choice = Warwick (BBC)

    the weird thing is that i really want to go warwick rather than bristol, though bristol is much better for engineering. But apart from that, theres no campus, most of the halls are about a 40 min walk away from the uni and halls of residence are expensive!! average is about £68 a week.
    Warwick has it all. decent campus, largest student union in UK and overall, an excellent reputation.

    So its a question of whether i do well and go to a uni that is really good for my course, but hate the city or don't do so good and go to a brilliant uni but not so good for my course... decisions, decisions!!

    any advice people? cheers.

    Maths! I think it's because my school is low-achieving.

    no way!!! Emmanuel and Trinity are the best colleges in cambridge!!!

    For Comp. sci. at warwick and computer systems and software engineering at York. I *really* want to go to york, but I need an A in maths and got a C last year, so its not looking to hopeful.

    Well mine is Comp Sci, first choice UCL (ABB) and insurance Nottingham (BBB). But judging how P3 im not sure about the A in maths UCL want.

    How about some opinions. I live in London, either place i go i would move out. I think i like UCL degree a little better, but i would to get out and experience living elsewhere, and Nottingham has a pretty decend student life. Help, how do i decide?

    TO YOU PPL
    firstly...whoevers doin mechanical engineering...you rock! i nearly chose warwick but went for edin and leeds instead. warwicks really nice but close to coventry which is the only problem, but it is nice.
    and to the person choosin between UCL and notts. choose notts. its soo nice. and lush. and city life and country life and wicked!

    huh? they've offered a guy in my school BBC.

    thats a load of rubbish. If we are both talking about the same Cambridge university, i think we both know that they won't accept anyone on a BBC

    it all depends on what type of school and where it is.

    I agree. i would be very surprised if they offered this. Sometimes they make metriculation (EE) of unconditional offers but its is usually AAA or AAB

    yeah, some sort of disability scheme or scheme where people from that school rarely if ever go to cambridge.

    BBC does seem a bit low to me though.

    However, the royal family have no problem getting in and they are (as bruce forsyth put it) 'a bit thick'.

    Prince Charles went to Trinity with really low A-level grades. Life is not fair.
