    There's probably already a thread for this so I'm sorry if there is but I just wanted to get to know some people that'll be applying for Southampton this year I went to the open day recently and fell in love (even more than I already was).

    I'd love to hear what current students' advice for applying here and opinions of the uni are (from an internal perspective) too!

    I'm going to be applying for Psychology and Education and my AS grades were ABBC (I dropped the subject I got a C in) so in theory I only need one more A to get to the entry requirements (which I feel positive I can get because the subjects with B's in, I got A's in most of the previous year!)

    Hey, I'm applying for psychology as a single honours! I went to the summer school last year and I really liked the atmosphere, the city centre as well is not too quiet and it's so nice and clean

    Oh that's awesome! The single honours didn't really interest me, I didn't find the lecturers as enthusiastic as those for the joint hons!
    Glad to hear you liked the city centre too as I didn't really get the time to explore since they had so much going on on campus!

    Whereabouts are you from - if you don't mind me asking of course?

    I believe the entry requirements for the course are AAB, so I'm definitely on track to achieve this, but a lot can happen during A2 which worries me slightly...

    Omg me too! Also my entry requirements are the same as that too! My teachers have predicted me AAB though so at least I know I'm likely to get an offer!
