I'm Jemima and i'm 17

I really love reading, I spend a lot of time doing that, drawing, scrap-booking and journal-ling. Also, watching Netflix and playing Sims

I'm not sure yet, but my minimum is about ABB/BBB
> If applicable, what universities/courses are you applying for?
I haven't made the final decision, but I think I want to study Sociology, and I've been looking at Leicester, UEA, Sheffield, Nottingham (U of & Trent), Coventry. Loughborough and Lincoln. Now I've got to work on narrowing down and researchng

Hi jemima0103,

Great to see you are considering studying at Coventry University! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us! I also recommend attending our virtual (and hopefully soon also face to face) open days - it is a great opportunity to get a feeling of a university and to speak with lecturers and current students! Applicants find it very helpful.

Kind regards,

Monika
