    I sent my UCAS off on the 4th and heard back from Manchester this evening. I applied for Economics and Politics. I knew it was a risk applying there as I didn't have the predicted grades to match the entry requirement, but my PS was pretty strong. I feel gutted that I didn't even make it to an interview. Feeling pretty **** right now. I've also received an email from Leeds Uni asking for an academic reference as my reference was by a recent employer. (I'm a gap year student) I can't really get a hold of anyone from College to provide me with a reference so there goes my Leeds offer. At this rate I'm honestly expecting all 5 rejections and I don't even think Economics would be available through clearing/adjustment at RG uni's. It's been a dream of mine to attend an RG uni, so I feel pretty crushed right now.

    I visited Sheffield University last year and fell in in love with the place. I really loved the vibe at the Student Unions, so would gladly accept an offer from them haha. Hope we both get it!

    I know of someone who got into Bath via adjustment - okay, it's not an RG uni but it's one of the best non-RG unis and they've been top for student satisfaction. So that's worth thinking about

    The Russell Group is made up for 24 universities. 8 of those are not within the top 24 ranked universities for this year. It's not a ranking of the best universities.
