I need a little help finding a uni right for me Watch
Believe me, closeness to home is underrated. When you see people forking out money for train tickets home for Christmas you'll be laughing!
My family home is in Cornwall, so for me I was restricted to Plymouth, Exeter and Bristol for closeness to home! I had my heart set on UWE and didn't want to do anywhere else. Made it my first choice and picked 4 other random universities, but I studied like anything and got UWE.
Do make sure you go for an open day to Brookes and make sure it's the one, similarly for Sheffield Hallam as your backup. Don't stress too much and enjoy A Levels
