    For AS I got BCD,I'm retaking a few AS modules to raise my grades,and my A2 predicted grades are ABB. May I ask what your predicted grades are? And are you also planning on studying Psychology? I'm sure you'll get an offer from them soon!

    Oh cool! So I'm presuming your UCAS hasn't been sent off yet?
    and revision is very stressful! I just need to be consistent with it, that's the main thing. How about yours? What subjects do you take btw?

    I wanted to ask what the Psychology course is like there,do you enjoy it? and I have been told that there is quite a lot of maths involved, is this true?
    I also wanted to ask about the university itself,overall how is the student life there,atmosphere etc
    Thank you

    In my opinion I think the course city offers is great! They cover a range of modules that are very interesting. I've completed my first term and currently doing my exams and so far I absolutely love it there!
    There is a maths module, but it's doable maths. Before I came I was scared about maths as well as I haven't done it since gcse but it's really not that hard.. I got 80% in my first maths class test and I HATE maths! Just practice and you'll be fine! If your struggling then just speak to the lecturer (he's call Stuart and he's lovely!)
    In terms of university life, I think the overall atmosphere of the uni is friendly and nice, but in terms of night life I wouldn't know as I commute and I don't party!

    If you have any other questions I'd be happy to try and help )
