    Hi guys,
    So I have two slots left on my UCAS application to fill up, I'm on my gap year and achieved A*A*A (Maths, Physics, FMaths). Offers for physics at Imperial and Physics+Maths at Warwick.

    As I want to fill in my other two choices in case I decide I suddenly want to do engineering in the near future, was just wondering what is the best uni I would have a decent shot of getting in for - I know the deadline is fast approaching but I might as well! I should mention my entire personal statement is physics-based - shouldn't be much of a problem for engineering?

    Cheers.

    Durham for Physics or NatSci?

    Who wouldn't take you?
    Honestly, even if your P.S is physics based, you'd stand a good shot anywhere, although I'd maybe change a few lines talking about real world applications for the physics from an engineering standpoint just to be safe.

    Most places, I imagine. Maybe apply at imperial for engineering and another uni you like with lower grades as a back up

    Depends on your discipline within engineering. Its not just engineering as a whole. Its hugely diverse......

    If its Mechanical.....Id be shooting for Sheffield or Imperial. In that order. The highest offer generally is A*AA really.....Unless the rest of your application is tosh...But Id second the whole adjusting your PS a touch.....Id say something along the lines of an interest in physics applied and the resulting engineering.

    Here is a list for you to google, mention a specific thing about them:

    JET (Fusion reactor)
    MAST (Baby Fusion reactor)
    ITER (Fusion reactor)
    ISIS (Synchrotron)
    Diamond Light Source (Synchrotron) (Little clue here....something specific is in the name)
    CERN (Synchrotron)
    XFEL (Just being built in Germany)

    Those are the big science experiments around Europe and I think you should talk about one of those.

    Cheers guys - applied for Bristol's aerospace as apparently that's quite good! Thanks for the help.
