    Hi there!

    I want to study physics at university, but I'm not sure what the best unis for it are. I've looked at a few, like KCL and Warwick, but I'm not sure where else to start. I really wanted to apply to Oxford for a while, but I got AAABB at AS, with one of those Bs in physics, so I don't think I'll get support from my school to apply there anymore.

    However, I am determined to get those Bs up to As with resits, and I feel that with extenuating circumstances for my physics grade (multiple physics teachers leaving during the year, bad teaching at some points, and no teachers for some periods meant we were forced to teach ourselves a large part of the course), I still have a good chance at getting into a good university (apart from Oxbridge and Imperial now).

    Thank you!

    Why do you need support from your school? You can apply wherever you want.

    Durham is really good.

    Bad teachers/leaving teachers aren't extenuating circumstances, you should have taken responsibility for your own learning.
