Welcome to the University of Leicester Applicants thread!

Hi everyone :wavey:

This thread is for anyone considering applying, or has applied, to UoL for the 2017 entry. You can use this thread to connect with other applicants, and talk about courses, the city and the uni.

I studied at Leicester from 2011-2014, then did my MA there the following year. I'll be happy to answer any general questions, but might struggle with anything specific as it has been 5 years since my freshers!

To get things started, why don't you fill out the following:

Name:
Location:
Course:
GCSEs:
AS:
A2 subjects:
A2 (predictions or achieved):
Applying anywhere else?

Here's mine...

Name: Fox Corner :cool:
Location: South East
Course: English Literature
GCSEs: 9 A-C
AS: can't remember :rofl:
A2 subjects: English Lit, Law, Psychology, English Language (AS)
A2 (predictions or achieved): AAB A
Applying anywhere else? I also applied to Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Oxford Brookes

Interesting Facts about UoL
  • We won the first ever University Challenge in 1963
  • David and Richard Attenborough's dad was the Principal of the University College from 1932-1951. The Attenborough's lived on campus (in what is now the Maths Building) and both brothers were made Distinguished Honorary Fellows of the University in 2006.
  • UoL discovered and exhumed the body of Richard III in 2012, after discovering it in a car park in the city.
  • The techniques used in genetic fingerprinting were invented and developed at UoL in 1984 by Sir Alec Jeffreys.
  • We were chosen by the United Nations as one of only 10 Universities in the world to take part in the HeForShe campaign.

I'm applying for neuroscience and predicted ACC in Maths, Chemistry and Biology however I know I can get at least AAB. I got 3A* 7A's and a B at GCSE.

For the requirements it says AAB - BBB + B in EPQ and I am predicted an A for my EPQ. Should I still apply?

What do you mean?
My personal statement shows I've done an EPQ and that I'm hard working as well as an all rounder.

I just got an unconditional for Medical Physiology (ABB) with AAA predictions and a medical personal statement. Does anyone know if it will still be conditional if I make it my insurance?

Name: Jaz
Location: Newtown, Wales
Course: Computer Science
GCSEs: 4 Bs, 2 Cs, 1D (I know I'm gonna have some tough competition)
AS: I'm doing BTEC. I guess the equivelant might be my BTEC IT L2? (though I only did that because I failed Business L3. Personal reasons :/)
A2 subjects: Did a BTEC Business L3 Diploma, but failed. Doing BTEC IT L3 Extended Diploma now.
A2 (predictions or achieved): I don't know what my tutor's going to predict for me yet, but I had straight distinctions last year, and I'm getting straight distinctions this year. So I'll get D*D*D* at the end. (not debatable. I'm doing it :P)
Applying anywhere else? Cardiff, Aberystwyth, Bangor, Staffordshire

I applied on 11/10. I emailed admissions to check but they said that the offer will remain unconditional even if I make it my insurance!
