    I might think of applying to Brighton. I'm from London but I have close people living in Brighton so maybe I might want to study out of London. 🤔

    Why Brighton? I’m not sure really. Haven’t been able to visit, but I like the look of it. It being an LGBT friendly city is a plus.

    UCAS is about to be sent off and I picked Brighton to study Law, have fellow friends who say it's a real chill environment there and studying is also good.

    Predicted: BBB with also a B in EPQ which I achieved last year.

    Could anyone tell me any information on Brighton? Like how's the uni life like? Is it sociable?

    Course: Environmental Science
    Predicted Grades: BBB (Though honestly im so **** at Biology)
    Other Universities: Portsmouth, Plymouth, Bangor and Kingston (offered me an unconditional but i haven't been there yet so idk)
    Why you like Brighton: I know the city and love it. Its fairly close to home but far enough that i can be independant. The course looks great, the trips are awesome and the department recently had an update so thats pretty cool. Also i'm still in the closet and live in a small, very conservative village so it seems like a good place to get to know myself and meet some like minded people

    How long did Brighton take to get back to you guys? I sent mine off two days ago and thought I'd be relieved to get it out the way but I'm actually a nervous wreck at the moment lol

    I got my offer last night. DMM, or unconditional if firmed. It took 6 days from the Uni confirming my application (10 days from submitting my UCAS).

    I’m going to head down for an open/applicant day, as soon as I can.

    No. I’m still waiting to hear back from some Unis, so not allowed to make decisions. The offer says “This is subject to you obtaining Distinction Merit Merit. If, when deciding where to study, you select us as your firm option, we will amend this conditional offer to unconditional”.
