So I've got my offers and narrowed it down to three choices:
History & Politics @ Cambridge (Selwyn) with an A*AA conditional offer
Archeology & Anthropology @ Durham (Castle) with an ABB conditional offer
History & Politics @ Edinburgh with an ABB conditional.

I have no clue what I actually want to choose though - everyone's pushing me to firm Cam so that's what I'm most likely to do but I'm torn between Durham and Edinburgh. I love the course modules at Edinburgh but I apprecoate the college system at Durham. Plus, I've heard that Edinburgh is of lesser quality in terms of teaching standards.

Any advice and suggestions would be warmly welcome - most of my teachers, as they are Durham Grads, are pushing me towards it, my father prefers Edinburgh and I'm just plain confused.

P.S I didn't really know where to post this so yeah...

Take Cambridge and Durham.

Edinburgh is 4 long years, and if your gifted which you likely are it will be a bore. You just do the same credits in 4 yrs at Edingburgh lol.
