That seems like a really interesting degree - good luck! I'm sure you'll do amazingly.

What's psychology A level like? My school doesn't offer it and I don't know anyone who does it.

For those who've been to the virtual open days, were they useful, or not? Easy to use? Did you find the information / people you wanted to? What was good about them? What was bad about them? Will you go to more? If you could do one thing to improve them, what would it be?

1. Maths, Further Maths, Physics: A*A*A
2. Computer science with intelligent systems
3. 99988887765
4. They offer a diverse curriculum based around robotics as well as computing.
5. Cambridge, Imperial, Bath and Southampton
6. No

I dont know if this appears for anyone else but on the website it says computer science with intelligent systems but on ucas apply it says computer science with artificial intelligence so the course titles are different even though the ucas codes are the same. Could someone please clarify this?

Hey. Welcome to the thread! Sometimes UCAS mixes up the names, but if the codes are the same, it should be ok. I would call them up and check anyway just to make sure in case it is wrong

I'll go first:
1. Maths, Further Maths, Bio, Chem, Physics - I'm predicted all A*s.
2. Biomedical Engineering
3. A*,A*,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,A^
4. I love the course content and the structure of it seems really good, and the staff and students at the virtual open day seemed really happy with it. Also, I live in London, relatively close to KCL (although Imperial is more convenient).
5. Cambridge, Imperial, UCL, Durham
6. I went to the Biomedical Engineering Virtual Open Day and Q&A session afterwards.

Please can someone else join as I don't want to be the only one here?
please share your revision techniques as they clearly have been working.

Got it thanks! For my course, would I get an interview or is my offer solely based on my personal statement?
