University choices Watch
What do you think you'll get instead of your predicted grade?
Remember you get to pick two... a firm and an insurance. People tend to put their favourite first then the one the wouldn't mind going to second.
I'm a social media student rep for the University of Kent. Firstly, congratulations on your offer to study at Kent!
If you're struggling to decide between universities, attending applicant days and open days can be really useful. As you are an offer holder for Kent it is likely that you have received an invitation to one of our applicant days. If you haven't done so already, you can book your place here; https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/visit...ays/index.html
We also have a Unibuddy system where prospective students can talk to current students who are studying the same course which can be really helpful in deciding which university would best suit you. Here is the link; https://www.kent.ac.uk/unibuddy/
In terms of being lenient on grades, some universities may accept grades 1 or 2 below asking on results day. But this is entirely dependent on the volume of applicants/offers on the day. But don't worry too much, in my experience I got slightly below my asking grades and still received an offer.
I am in my third year at Kent and I absolutely love it here! The campus has a really chilled out vibe to it with loads of things to do, as well as being just a 20 minute walk from Canterbury town center. If you have any questions about student life at Kent, please feel free to ask I hope this helps!
Kent is pretty easy to get into I put them down as my insurance and even though I got BCC they still offered Me a place... I would check where you are in terms of campus, if your at Canterbury great, if your at Medway... yeahhh I wouldn’t go there, Sussex it’s ranked higher and a better uni. Sussex aren’t that strict, if you get BBB you have a chance of getting in
I have all my offers back from the universities, loughborough, kent, sussex, surrey and essex with AAA,ACC,AAB,ABB,BCC respectively for maths. i am not sure which one to apply to because i don't think i will get my predicted A*BC. can you tell me which you think i should do and how lenient the unis are. thanks
