    Did you only apply so you could reject the offer?

    Mainly because the interview/applications process really put me off, and I got a reduced offer from Edinburgh where I can get £29,000 bursary

    I hate Harry Potter... a rubber duck is a toy. That is its function.

    Hello friend! Why did you turn down your offer and where did you end up?
    I've ended up in Keele (that's another story).

    Turned them down because they didn't offer the exact course I wanted.

    No, I'm fairly sure I'll get the grades, I just felt the uni was kinda unwelcoming after visits etc.

    No...why would anyone do that? I genuinely wanted to go when I applied- it was my goal since about year 9 but then I did my research and started thinking realistically, and it turns out that in terms of prospects it isn't much better than the other unis I applied to
