    What happens for the intellectually challenged? Do we end up getting stuffed in the job market/ graduate schemes if we go to a bad uni?

    Where is the cap? Top 30? Top 50? Top 70??

    Guys help me out. I literally have no one else to turn to and can ask about the meaning and purpose of life...

    edit: course in question is business management and finance.. I'm not daft enough to pay 9k a year to do history or some other left-field rubbish. So where do I stand?

    I see that you had an exam that you aren't confident with and you are stressing out about the future. I hope things have calmed down a bit now.

    It's important to not get too caught up in rankings. It's not just about what uni you go to but what you achieve there, academically and non-academically.

    If you feel like some uni that is ranked # in this year by some league table isn't good enough for you, then you can always take a gap year and reapply. I would suggest doing much, much more research into universities, visiting open days etc before deciding whether they are/aren't for you.

    I have a dilemma. I really like this uni ranked 45 but my parents would rather I went to a uni ranked 30 or 12. I hated both of those 2 unis and felt I would probably fail. I didn't like the atmosphere, the lecturers or the potential students there whilst at the one ranked at number 45 felt like home to me.

    I'm just trying to think what would be the best choice for me and whether the league tables really matter with regards to employment.
