So I’ve always wanted to go to the university of Edinburgh, but due to some health issues in my final year of high school I wasn’t able to get the grades I needed to attend. I took a gap year and got a job at Lloyds and reapplied but only to Edinburgh Napier as I didn’t think I’d have a chance with UoE. Fast forward to now, I’m in 2nd year and my first year results were high enough to be averaged out at a First.
Now, my dilemma is if I was to transfer to Edinburgh is it worth it now? Since I’d be in my 3rd year and I can definitely guarantee I probably wouldn’t get a first at UoE, I could probably get a second though. Which would be more beneficial?
A 2:1 at a RG university or a 1st at a top 10 ranked modern university?
I know I definitely want to do a Masters and definitely want to do it at UoE. Also another big factor is the fact that I want to study abroad Napier doesn’t have the best choices on the East Coast which is where I definitely want to go as my boyfriend is studying in Boston right now.
What would you do?
