    Hi guys,

    I'm currently a gap year student. Last year i got into my insurance choice at the University of Sheffield. At the time, i didn't feel like i particularly wanted to enroll that year so i deferred my place, until i eventually declined a month later. I decided that i was keen on resitting two modules (A's across all my exams in both AS and A2 until i somehow managed a C and an E in my last two out of 6 A2 exams). My teachers recommended a retake as it wasn't generally representative of what i could achieve (4 A's at AS etc) I got ABB and will sit exams in 3 weeks to see if i could improve.

    I am currently looking to study Economics at either Exeter or Sheffield. I loved Sheffield as a uni, but thought i could get into Exeter (which i also did like) However, i feel as if i would enjoy my uni life experience more at Sheffield yet is is in a lower ranking than Exeter.
    I'm not sure if i'm just choosing Exeter because i feel like i will get a better job, or prospects where i think i'll be happier at Sheffield, with the night life, the people, the union, generally feeling more comfortable etc

    Any help would be great, as i'm a little stuck in a rut!

    Why do you think your uni life would be better at Sheffield? The uni life at Exeter is excellent.
