    It's only an extra £10 or something like that to apply to 6 institutions instead of 1. What do want to do and where?

    What makes you so sure that, that place and course is the one for you?
    After you've researched some more courses (if you have done already) you may find something that also appeals to you.

    Don't keep such a closed mind

    Chemical Engineering at UMIST, or it will be the university of manchester when I go I think.

    I wouldn't advise it... universities are not as nice as they look. When they decide whether to accept you or not, they'll have no idea that you only applied for one course, so you'll get no special treatment.

    You may need higher than BBB when it combines with Manchester uni as the two combined will be very good.

    Wish I was like this!!! I am relying on the admissions people to help me decide (i.e. by some of them rejecting me). I have rough idea of the places I like and would like to study at but other than that Im somewhere between Oxford and Thames Valley !!!

    Manchester doesn't have a Chem Eng department - only UMIST does. I applied for deferred entry (2nd yera of the merger) and my offer was BBB.

    could you not apply to other places, but hope they accept you? so at least you would have something to fall back on. Nottingham do chemical engineering don't they?

    Manchester has aspirations of moving up to the AAB/AAA league when they merge, I hear.

    If you only apply to one uni you can work the personal statement around that uni, and say, I want to go to UMIST because...a luxury you dont have if youre applying to 6 unis. So they will know hes only applied to one uni

    When I was at Oxford I met two people who had applied to Oxford only. They said that if they didn't get in then they would re-aply and fill up the six second time round. Seems stupid to me, because what if they had a change of heart and wanted to go to uni this year?
