    Which uni should I choose for an insurance? They are both asking for the same grades. Chester is 4 places higher on the league tables but Derby is nearer home.

    Haven't visited either but please can you advise which is better in terms of the city, the nightlife, university quality and reputation?
    Im really struggling to choose.

    Thanks!

    No-one can tell you which university you can go to. One person's opinion of a city/nightlife/quality is completely different to anothers. For example... I dislike Birmingham as a city but know several who love it. I'd try and visit both universities if I were you.

    Try not to rely on league tables either. Each person has different needs when trying to find THE university. League tables judge all universities by the same standards that don't necessarily suit you.

    I may still be able to offer an alternative if you provide more information though.

    What would be the point in that? As I've already said I can't apply to anymore.

    I thought the same for mine but then after talking to people there were a lot more choices. Entry requirements are very different for each University, I guarantee there will be more options for you, and lets be honest they'll be better than those choices.

    Ps- Only trying to help, no need for the biter tone.

    Oh right, sorry i misunderstood. Thought you were still making up your 5 choices. In that case put Chester, I guess. Again, it would be helpful if you say the subject at least lol. TSR members aren't magicians who magically know what you like and don't or the subject you're taking.

    I live in derby and am planning to go to uni in chester. From what I've seen chester is a beautiful city and derby is a bit if a dump. I don't know much of the uni of derby but I think they have a similar reputation.
