    Hello, I have got my predicted grades and now have to start thinking about applying to university.

    Although i have been predicted A*A*A* for UCAS (maths, physics, philosophy and ethics) I am struggling to choose 5 universities to apply to, I want to stay away from oxbridge, durham and imperial due to the fact I believe I will have a more fun time at another uni such as manchester which is almost as good for physics.

    However, I have only really had an interest in manchester and bristol so far (having been to open days at oxford and york too)

    What are other good universities to study physics which I could apply to with my grades? I just want the best education possible whilst still having plenty of fun

    Birmingham has an excellent reputation for Physics. Others worth considering are Warwick, Lancaster, Exeter and Bath
