Hi
I am in Year 12 at the moment, and me and my friends have decided that were going to attend University open days this year, as we have been told that next year is going to be a very busy year and there may not be time
Last week I went to Queen Mary University open day however I feel like I didn't make the most of the day as I only went to one lecture and barely had a look around.

I am doing Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths at A - Level and I want to do something science related at Uni. Forensic science, engineering, or maybe even maths. I really don't know.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice of how to make the most out of these open days as well as helping choose a degree.

Also some of my friends are already preparing for the maths entrance exam at uni (their in yr 12 as well) however my sixth form hasn't mentioned anything about it

Thanks in advance

Do your own research and don't just rely on what the school is telling you. With all the degrees you're interested in go through course structures and work out which ones interest you. Then work out which unis offer the course and go to open days. Walk around the uni and surrounding area to get a feel for it. Do you see yourself living and studying there for 3-4 years. Talk to people in the dept. Do they seem friendly and are the students happy. Think about what other opportunities the uni offers in terms of societies clubs etc. Do you want to be in a small or big uni, town or city, do a placement etc.

Hi! I'm currently at Queen Mary and I feel I could help you, even if not personally.. I'm on a platform called Unibudy for current students and applicants, where you can ask current students from your target course for info, etc. There's a lot of chemistry/medicine/maths/biochem students on there, so I think you could find some help there!
