Psychology and neuroscience sounds so fascinating, but I doubt I'd be smart enough to even consider studying something so complex! How are you finding the degree?
its so interesting i enjoy it so much even though its hard work. i was worried about taking neuro joint honours but i really think anyone can study anything if they're interested in the field. it's all about motivation and applying yourself more than anything else. i absolutely cannot do maths for the life of me and yet here i am two years in having passed my stats module each year! if i can do it anyone can haha

i don't know if i'm allowed to post here as i've already graduated, but it was in cell biology/biochemistry.

i was extremely lucky to have benefited enormously from it as biology really is a useless subject unless you want to do a PhD and go into academia. the only subject more useless is psychology.

I'm in year 11 but I'm considering law, forensic science or environmental science (taking biology, chemistry & english lit at a-level).

you'll be fine just make sure you do work experience every single summer, (working behind a bar is even better than something psych related unless it's an official internship)... a weekend job would be good too if you can manage it on top of everything else

Good Luck! Do you think Southampton is up there as one of the best Uni's for Physics? Equal to Warwick?
(Original post by Sinnoh)
Finished A-levels, waiting for results day :bebored: if I get the grades it's physics at Imperial, if I get slightly worse grades then physics at Southampton.
For most of year 12 I was pretty certain I wanted to do aerospace engineering, which is actually why I chose those two unis initially

Thanks! As it happens I did apply to Warwick and Birmingham too. I chose Southampton because they had nice course options - specifically, I applied there for Physics with Space Science, which just generally seemed more interesting - since I'd abandoned doing aerospace engineering (but still liked the idea of doing it) I thought it was a nice compromise - I'd learn about orbital mechanics, spacecraft design, space physics, stuff like that. Warwick didn't seem to have that.

Comparison is difficult and I had a hard time weighing Southampton up against Warwick at one point. I'd been rejected from Cambridge and if I didn't get into Imperial I was trying to decide whether I'd firm Warwick, firm Southampton (which had the lowest offer at AABC, so an insurance would be pointless). However, I never intended to have Warwick be my insurance because it was A*AA.
If I had wanted to go down a more purely physics-oriented course programme, or maths with/and physics, I'd have gone for Warwick.
