St Andrews vs Manchester watch

    • Thread Starter

    hi everyone! i’m having a really hard time making decisions for which uni to go to (i’m canadian btw). i got rejected from oxford and accepted to st andrews. manchester gave me a conditional offer if i take the sats. i didnt even know that sats were required when i applied (i know, it was a really dumb mistake). i haven’t even started studying for the sat because of this, so i don’t really want to take it. should i go through the effort of taking the sat in order to go to manchester, accept the offer from st andrews, or withdraw my ucas application altogether and try again for oxford next year ( because i’m already taking a gap year).any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!! my degree is bsc psychology.

    What's the offer difference? Manchester is a lot bigger than St A, so you also need to think about where you'd be happier!
