Hi, I didn't get the grades I needed to go to Manchester so I've narrowed it down in clearing to University of East Anglia Biology with a foundation versus Portsmouth biology (no foundation year). I was checking up on what the foundation year involves and it seems that it's very much like A levels. I hope to transfer after a year to a better uni provided I do well in the first year, so I'm just wondering what others would choose. I think in terms of the city Id prefer UEA. Another thing is that UEA is ranked fairly higher than Portsmouth for biology, so I'm wondering if I have a higher chance of transferring successfully from UEA than from Portsmouth?

Thanks for the help

I wouldn't worry about rankings.

If you prefer UEA then accept it. I don't think transferring is a wise idea after a year purely on the basis of rankings - it's an unnecessary upheaval.
