    Hey, I was just looking for some advice as I'm torn between which of the two unis to go to. I'm going to be doing Psychology and I've gotten an Unconditional offer from Solent and a Conditional offer from Bournemouth and I'm struggling to pick between them. Part of me wants to pick Solent as the Unconditional offer would reduce my stress levels a tonne which could potentially lead to me doing better in my A Levels as I'm the kind of person who constantly worries which does distract me from revision. However, the other part of me wants to pick Bournemouth as I think it's probably got a better reputation (please correct me if I'm wrong) which I guess would allow for better job opportunities afterwards (again please correct me if I'm wrong as I'm going off what I have read online). Any advice is welcome, thank you!

    Forgot to mention, the unconditional offer only applies if it put it as my firm choice.

    If you prefer Bournmouth, put that as #1 and it will make you focus more on a levels. At least you would have an unconditional to fall back on.
