    I've got offers from both unis to study there.
    I really want to do a year aboad in North America but I only applied to do so at Exeter; for reasons I'm not quite sure now because they've both asked for the same grades :')
    I've heard Warwick is the more prestigious uni (often compared to Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial) but Exeter seems like a nicer place (plus I adore Devon) and plus that year abroad!
    Any and all opinions are welcomed

    do you reckon the fact Warwick has a higher ranking will make chosing Exeter a mistake though? :/

    I've applied to Exeter and Warwick and I'm about to firm Exeter based purely on the fact that I completely fell in love with the uni when I visited back in June. They're both Russell Group and at the end of the day careers wise, what you do outside of the course is just as important as your overall grade. Just go with where you know you'll be happier! Who knows if you do chose Exeter I may see you next year haha! Good luck wherever you go xx

    Barely, and a future employer won't care.
