Hi, my name is Rob and I am currently in year 12, and have just started my A Levels.

Over the next year or so I will be visting various universities to help me find where I would like to study, however I am having a tough time narrowing down a list on places I would like to visit.

The A levels I study are: Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics

Currently, I believe I would like to study chemistry/chemical engineering or maths as I am really interested by these subjects and have a genuine passion for them.

The only factor I can think of that is important to me is:
location - has to be in/near a town/city centre

Currently I would like to think that I am not limited by entry requirements as I will be working extremely hard the next two years to ensure I get to go to the uni I desire.

Here is my list of unis I will DEFINTELY visit:
Oxbridge
Imperial
Warwick

Help me find more!

Have a look at the league tables for each subject you want to study and go through every single one, until the 50th or 100th one. Make a note of entry requirements, course details, dates of open days etc. and decide which 7 or 8 take your fancy. Then visit those ones, and narrow it down to 5 from there.

Imo league tables aren't everything. The most important thing is how you feel about the uni. If you limit yourself to just the top 5 on the tables you're more likely to make yourself miserable.
