    I'm aware it's a Russel group so it's never going to be ' easy' however, it's also not in the top 20 on the university guide. I really want to do Philosophy, and their typical offer is ABB which isn't too hard, however I'm sure they'll be offering people way past that with A*'s, is it likely that with a good Personal statement, reference and predicted grades of the typical offer that I'd get in? Also my A levels are English Lit, History and Geography

    Well they get around 1450 applications for 350 places but there's nothing to say that many of those applicants don't meet their entry requirements, i think it is worth a try

    I got in with ABB. I didn't end up going there though, so I'm not sure what the calibre of the rest of the cohort is like.
