    I have been offered place to study History as an Undergraduate course at KCL, LSE and UCL. I am obviously very happy as all of the them are great uni's and want to study in London, but struggling to choose one out of the three. Was wondering, as someone who hasn't yet gone to university what are the key things to look out for when judging which uni to go to?

    Given that the environment is the same for all three, ie London, I suggest that you focus on the course content. What does each one focus on? Do you prefer one to the other two?

    What about compulsory modules? Do you like them or are they subjects you hate?

    Look at the optional modules. Imagine which ones you would take each year (given the choice) at each uni.

    Does one uni now stand out?

    Location is a key. But yours are all in london,
    Prestige - LSE is top.
    Variations in the course
    Number of optional modules
    How your'e assessed - exam to coursework ratio.

    I'd go LSE ! - Congrats on getting such great unis. May i ask what u were predicted ?
