    Hi! I'm a current first year at University of Liverpool, I love it! It's a Russel group uni so one of the best in the UK, and as an original red brick uni, I'd say it's pretty prestigious!

    No that's fine! I was so worried about getting in but they were quite lenient with accepting people. At GCSE i got 1 A*, 6As and 4Bs, then at a level i got A*BB, my offer was AAB but i got in as it was point equivalent Still try your best but dont worry too much, i know a lot of people that got in and missed their offer by one grade, and some by even two!

    Omg I got similar GCSEs to you with 1A* 6As 2Bs and 1C . My offer is ABB and I'm just scared I won't get that and even if I did get ABB I'm worried that they won't accept me due to them being just minimum requirements. May I ask what course you're studying and also do you think that extra curricular activities helped you get in, such as volunteering work, musical instruments, work experience etc. Also what A Levels did you take? haha

    If they've given you an offer it means they want you! So don't worry about your subjects not being good enough I'm a history student, and at a level i did history (B), Psychology (B) and Sociology (A*). I think extra curricular activities helped me get an offer, but i dont think they'd hinder your chance of getting in. I only said that i used to be on my local swim team and that i did work experience that was 4 years ago (obviously i didnt say it was that long ago lol!) You'll be fine

    Thank you very much. There very good A Levels and it's interesting to hear from students at the uni. Also if you don't mind me asking, what is uni like such as is it exams, coursework etc? and how many days a week is it you need to be for your lectures etc?

    I think it depends what subject you do. For history i'm in four days a week. I have to attend 3 seminars and 4 lectures a week. I also had to choose a minor (sociology) so i also have a seminar and a lecture to attend for that as well. In terms of assessment (again this is only for history) i have an essay or two to write each semester for each module. I have completed all my essays now, so in total since i started in September I've done 9. Then I personally had 2 exams in January and have 3 coming up in late May. But i know for science subjects you have a pretty jam packed week, with A LOT of contact hours, something like 20+
