    Hi,

    I just got an unconditional offer from Hull, but would really like to go to Newcastle where my offer is ABB. The unconditional offer, as I understand it (I have asked for clarification), is only if I firm the university. The standard offer is CCC/BB which I am pretty confident of achieving unless something goes really wrong.

    The question is, is Newcastle better enough compared to Hull to pass up on the unconditional offer?

    Your input would be most appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Well it depends on how much you want to go to Newcastle - if your heart is set on it then you might be disappointed and underwhelmed when you got to Hull. Also you have got to weigh up whether or not you think you will achieve ABB and indeed BB (for Hull) or not. How are you finding A levels?

    Thanks for that folks, I think I'll leave as is and firm either Newcastle or York (which I'm seeing tomorrow).

    good choice man.
    newcastle's course is more practical whilst york's course is more mathematical and theoretical. york is smaller than newcastle and seems to have a smaller social scene. i recommend you research both universities before picking your firm. you can't really go wrong either way because they are both really good, it boils down to personal preference.
