Hi! I have an offer from Oxford to study Classics and English with conditions of AAA - I'm going to put that as my firm choice.

However, I'm struggling with French atm and my lecturer will be off ill for the foreseeable future so my chances of getting an A are slim.

Therefore my insurance choice is just as, if not more, important than my firm and I can't decide between Bristol or Exeter. I have offers of AAB to study Classical studies and English (or English and Classical studies) from both.

I live quite close to both - Exeter is an hour away by train so I've been going there for years to go shopping/go to the cinema. My Dad lives in Bristol so I've been there a few times.

In many ways Exeter seems perfect - very green, peaceful, a small and safe city. It does feel quite close though. I'm a quiet person - definitely not a party person. But there's something about Bristol, despite it's party reputation that I'm drawn to. But then Exeter, then Bristol!

I really can't decide so any advice/information would be great.

Thank you!

Well as somebody who has lived in Bristol my entire life but studies at Exeter I have to say that I much prefer Exeter as a city.

If you've got any specific questions about either place (or Exeter University) just throw them my way and I'll do my best to answer them for you.

Id definitely choose exeter because its perfect form me in terms of the people, city and university whereas Bristol i can't really imagine myself there but you say your dads in bristol that may help on the weekends or something somehow
I guess you just have to think if Oxford (which is amazing congratulations btw) wasn't in the picture would it be exeter or bristol??

Interesting. Thanks for your reply!

What do you like about Exeter? What is it like the study/live there? Do you ever feel that it's too small?

Hi all

I have a similar dilemma. I have to decide whether to firm Exeter, or firm Bristol (the higher offer) and have Exeter as my insurance choice. I went to an open day at Bristol and loved the city but I didn't manage to get to Exeter. I live abroad and won't have the opportunity to visit before the deadline. I'd also like to know what it is about Exeter that you prefer to Bristol... Many thx for your help!

yo, have any of you guys made a decision yet? i'm studying ancient history. accommodation and the city itself seem really lively and social, whereas exeter have everything up to date and modern. if you've firmed either, what are your reasons?
