In hindsight, what are the actual chances of me attaining a place at arguably one of the most prestigious universities in the world? For either neuroscience or psychology by the way.

With these GCSEs:
65555444 (5 in maths, 5 in English literature and 4 in English language).

And I’m taking these a levels:
Biology, geography and sociology.

Predictions atm for them are three BBBs but I’m going for at least ABB/AAB.

Since your predicted are slightly under the minimum entry grades it might be a bit slim, but with a strong PS you can still gain entry. Plus I think after last years mess, predicted grades don’t play as big of a factor as they did last year

True yeah, I mean initially, I think I can raise my predictions for year 13 because I’m only in year 12.

Actually you should check the recent rankings, pretty sure they’re top 3 in the uk, so must be up there. Also, with notable alumni like prince William and Kate Middleton I’m pretty sure they’re fairly prestigious to say the least.

I don’t think they’re top three. Top three would be Oxford, Cambridge and UCL according to the QS rankings. And after those three it would be imperial & LSE. But yes they do have notable alumni

Well, everyone knows top 3 is Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial, UCL would be 5th due to the non-science course quality.

It's the oldest uni in Scotland and the third best in the UK for some rankings, it definitely is?

They are currently second in the UK I think but I would agree that it doesn’t translate to the world- still very good tho!

Guardian rankings for 2021: 1st Oxbridge. 2nd St. Andrews. 3rd Cambridge. QS ranks it lower because it doesn’t fair as well for research output (because it’s such a small university) research output is considered by QS. This is not relevant for the quality of undergraduate study or postgrad taught education.

it's dependant on the course really. just because minimum entry requirements are ABB doesn't mean that they'll be giving places to everyone. St Andrews ranks highly alongside Oxbridge.
