    Stuck between Marris house or Richardson road, I like Marris house because it looks nicer than Richardson road facilities but all the reviews are saying Richardson road has a better party atmosphere and i want that as well, also if i was living at marris how often would you go to other halls for parties and stuff?

    Really?! But a lot of people say you don't get into Marris because the gap year students get first choice so it usually fills up with them first :/

    Yeah it really sucks doesn't it! I'm really struggling, I think I'm gonna firm Newcastle but I really like the look of Southampton and Lancaster so I'm scared to do it in case I regret it lol!

    What are your conditions? Where else did you apply?

    I haven't looked at either of those, for Newcastle I've got to get ABB but I've heard a lot that they are quite lenient and will accept lower, Nottingham is AAB :/ and I had an unconditional from Huddersfield if I firmed them and Liverpool ABB and Nottingham Trent which I don't even know because I never really wanted to go anyway, what are your conditions?

    I already did my A-levels so all of mine are unconditionals, I got 4 Bs so it's just a case of working out where I wanna go! Nottingham is apparently a really good uni.

    Yeah, just wanted to work out what's best y'know! It makes it harder because I'm picking purely on the uni and now what I think I can get; like if I choose a uni I'm definitely doing there which makes it more final - dunno if that makes sense?

    Haha thanks, I was gutted I didn't get an A in English Language, but I was predicted ACCC, so I did better overall - hence the gap year. Don't stress, I genuinely thought I was gonna get a D in RS, I was walking up saying as long as it's a D I can take it so when I got a B I couldn't believe it.

    Yeah I get you, so do you only pick your firm then and nothing else you've still got time to decide, and yeah I really want an A in biology I'll be gutted if I don't get that too, and I'm predicted AAB but I don't think I'll be able to get an A in chemistry or sociology so
