I study Biomedical Sciences at Stratford. When I first got here I contemplated changing university, but realistically I'm not going to get many places higher with my pretty ordinary A-level results (3Cs) so I figured I'd just get on with it. Many universities I suspect, even with a glowing first year record, will be hesitant to take you unless your A-levels are at least very close to the entrance requirements for a first year straight out of school.
Living on Docklands is fine I think, the rooms have everything I need and the area around here is bearable. People seem to love complaining so much about this place that they seem to forget it's their own decision to be here. I don't "love" this university and I don't run around screaming to everyone how wonderful UEL, I just study. With a 1st or a 2:1 you can probably go up in the world, so this is just a stepping stone I'd say.
Queen Mary's could be the hardest university to get into since it's quite a popular university and has much higher entry requirements than UEL.
Just a bit of tick-tock on the clock until you find out your grades. Good luck.
