Really having trouble on deciding on which University to go to between Brighton and Sussex. I have an unconditional from Brighton and conditional offer from Sussex. I visited Brighton uni and it seemed nice, the lectures too, but the fact that it's ranked so lowly on the league tables is kind of concerning? What do I do? Do the league tables matter so much?

Well.. Pewdiepie lives in Brighton.

But yeah in your position I would stick with Sussex. Because of the higher ranking.

Have you visited Sussex? It might be worth going to an applicant day there or go there to visit and see for yourself if you feel right being there for university. Unconditional offers for me feel way too safe and feel like slacking on my effort for exams.

Yeah the higher ranking has been making me sway more towards Sussex, but then I've spoken to others who've said the rankings don't matter, it's what you make of it and the effort you put in. So I'm torn!

I'm going soon for the applicant day so hopefully that will help me make up my mind. And regarding the conditional offer, I'm scared I won't reach the grades to get in, so is it worth going for the safer option, yet still putting in effort to get the grades so I can be proud, or taking the riskier option with Sussex.

Don’t be more convinced by the unconditional, as the university and as well as others have been found to increase their unconditional offer. https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...itional-places
