I think Kings recorded the biggest increase in applications of any university in the country last year, so that would be why... the university seems to be getting back on track (partly) though.

Yeah. What I really can't understand though is why on earth they haven't pushed the requirements up to AAA for Law next year. They have by far enough applications to do so, and all of an excellent calibre (I've only met one law student who actually only got AAB). They don't seem to understand that the first thing many prospective students (foolishly) do when applying to uni is put the uni with the highest requirements as their first choice - thinking entrance grandes=prestige. Even QM ask for AAA!!!

Although I have heard rumours that they may be doing this next year, and they may become part of LNAT too.

I have applied to both UCL and KCL. for European Studies (at UCL they like to call it ESPS European Social and Political Studies)

It's a mixture of Politics, Culture, Language and history

Since when was UCL not a part of the UoL as well? Nobody is saying KCL doesnt have prestige as it certainly does but UCL is a fair bit ahead at the moment.
yes, im well aware they are both part of the U of L, but what im saying is both places give u a U of London degree, so really there isn't THAT much advantage

I'd go for the degree you prefer the most ...and if they're very similar, I'm not sure which I'd choose!

King's seems very good with its languages, so it certainly wouldn't be any worse than UCL, and UCL probably wouldn't be any 'better', even though it does have that bit more prestige.

Come to King's with me! Ooh, how tempting...
