Hiya
What course are you applying for?: International History and Politics *whoop*
What universities are you thinking of: Edinburgh, Exeter, St Andrews (but I’m not v sure on St Andrews atm lol), and not sure on the 5th - maybe Southampton, Sheffield, Sussex, Warwick or Lancaster (the indecisiveness is real)
A-Level / IB / Higher Predicted Grades: AAA
GCSE grades: 887755543
Extra-curriculars: A whole load of reading (history non-fiction, historical fiction), podcasts, MOOCs, several summer schools (online) such as UNIQ.
Why Leeds?: I’m a massive fan of modern history, foreign policy and international relations vibes, so this course at Leeds was literally the perfect combo of all the history and the elements of politics I’m interested in....the modules are ace.

Hi! I’m applying for MSci Medicinal Chemistry.
My A levels are Biology, Psychology and Chemistry and I’m predicted A*A*A (my goal is A*AA).
My GCSE grades were 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 8 8 8 7.
In terms of extra curricular and free time I used to play hockey until recently, I volunteer at a Brownies group, I did some work experience at UCLH and I have a job. I am also on Kings K+ programme.
I liked the look of Leeds online and I found the taster lecture for my course very interesting, plus the campus looks very nice.
Other unis I’m looking at are Exeter and KCL, and maybe York and Keele but they’re undecided.
