    Ok so I'll be applying to do medicine (I'm an international student - I'm already aware it's super hard!!) at university and I'm applying to the UK. I've decided that I'll be applying to Imperial and Exeter for sure, but I'm not sure about my other 2 options, from my research, I'm trying to choose between:
    - Barts and The London
    - Manchester
    - Liverpool
    - Cardiff

    I'm currently leaning towards Barts and Cardiff but I'm not really sure about student life in any of these places!! Anyone who's been to or is applying to or studies at these unis - please help! I'm in year 12. Also not sure if this will be helpful but I achieved 7 A*s and 4 As at GCSE. I also know that London is really competitive which is why i'm wary of applying to barts, and I'm a city girl (if that's any help), so I'd prefer to live in a city but that doesn't really bother me too much.
    Thank you for all ur help xx

    Maybe have a look at the SU and student life pages? Also choose based on teaching methods rather than city.

    exeter isn't really gonna give you a big 'city life'. You also should decide after doing your ukcat, aso they have different cutoffs. But imo London and manchester would give you the city vibe you're looking for.
