    I've finished my personals statement and so far I'm just thinking about my university choices.

    I'm wanting to do Chemistry at University and so far I'm predicted AAB, which isn't that great.

    These are the universities I've chosen so far:

    St Andrews - Mchem
    UCL - Bsc
    Manchester - Bsc (BBB offer guaranteed)
    York - Mchem with industry
    Warwick - (possible BBB offer not sure) Bsc

    However I'm also considering Newcastle because of their partners offer. I did check the uni-stats about the graduate employability and everything and isn't great compared with my other choices. If I'm wrong could anyone let me know. I'm also considering Lancaster and Nottingham.

    I want a mix of everything within a university in terms of social life, study life and jsut have as much opportunities available for me.

    I think out of the main choices I've chosen, I'm probably going to aim for St.Andrews.

    In terms of places, how is St.Andrews like in terms of the social life, studying etc for anyone that's currently studying there?

    I've been to London before, well Southwark and Canary Wharf for my work experience but haven't been the area around UCL, how is it like to be around there?

    I've been to York and overall the city is beautiful since I've been to the open day.

    I've yet to go to Warwick open day to see how the area is like.

    If anyone is currently studying Chemistry at Lancaster or Nottingham can you tell me how its like to study there and everything?
