    Some advice to anyone whos choosing what Unis to go for:

    Dont worry about the entry requirements. If you like the look of a Uni put it down, I was worried that having only achieved BBD at AS that if I applied for anything higher than a BBC Uni I wouldnt get any offers...subsequently I only got offers from 1-2 decent unis and 4 rubbish ones. Now that Im on track to achieve AAB I didnt really have much choice as to which Uni to go to...

    Especially if youre applying for an unpopular course (Physics, Maths etc)..I know this is irrelevant to most of you straight A students though..so

    Warwick, York and Manchester almost certainly. The other three places are still up for grabs.

    Oxford - Economics and Management
    Warwick - Economics, Politics and International Studies
    LSE - Economics (with/and Economic History? Probably not)
    UCL - Economics
    Durham - Economics (and Politics?)
    York - Economics, Econometrics and Finance

    Durham may turn into Bath though, but probably not.

    York - Politics
    Durham - Combined Honours in Social Science (Politics, Geography and something else, probably sociology)
    Royal Holloway - Politics and Sociology
    Keele - Politics and Computing

    And somewhere in Scotland for some kinda politics degree. Maybe Edinburgh, I'm undecided as yet.

    Which Cambridge course are you thinking of applying for? If you're really into Scandinavian languages you might want to have a look at Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic. It's not as current as Modern Languages, but if you might be interested in learning the old forms of languages ie Old English, Old Norse (you can also learn Modern Icelandic), Gothic it might tickle your fancy

    Hadn't thought of that - I'll look into it. I'm interested in odd languages

    Lol, I've practically decided already. My school is big on the whole uni thing, you we've been told to start thinking. Basically I want to do English with a year abroad and not many places so this so it has helped me narrow down my options!

    At the moment I'm thinking of:
    Exeter - English with year in N America
    Nottingham - English and American studies with yr in NA
    Birmingham - same as notts
    UEA - American and English literature with yr in NA
    York - English and comparative literature

    Then I have one more choice...maybe Cardiff or Warwick
    go for warwick - i almost applied there, the course looks so good!!

    I think 4 out of the following for medicine:

    Sheffield (typical offer: ABB - so could be a safety)
    Cardiff (typical offer ABB - " " ")
    Southampton (they don't do interviews so possibly worth a gamble)
    KCL (the only London one i like so far - and about 1 hour away from my home. and they have great hospitals)
    Bristol
    Leeds

    I really liked the accomodation in Nottingham when I went there for medlink, but they ask specifically for As in Chemistry and Biology.
    I went to Leicester information day yesterday and wasn't too impressed with the accomodation, although their medical school looks decent (even though i didnt actually go inside it..)
    I don't know whether to apply for Pharmacy as my 5th and 6th

    anyone recommend any medical schools?

    Either Maths and Philosophy at Oxford or Computer Science at Cambridge. I really don't care what other universities I apply to. Imperial? Nottingham? Warwick? I'll probably just pick at random.
    Ah, the days of indecision. Revised list (to read CompSci, unless otherwise stated):
    Queens', Cambridge
    Warwick
    Southampton
    Imperial
    Nottingham
    Brighton (sports journalism)

    I'm thinking of Durham, Nottingham, Southampton, Exeter, Bristol and...not sure yet...for geography.
    Changed my mind: Durham, Nottingham, Southampton, Exeter, Reading and Sheffield/Sussex/Loughborough/Swansea/Aber . I hated Bristol when i visited which is why i am no longer applying there.
