Hi, I'm Katy!
I'm applying for Optometry, and am currently studying Biology, Chemistry, History and the EPQ.
The only thing I'm slightly worried about with applying for Optometry is not doing Maths/Physics A-level so I wish I took one of them instead of History now .

Hey! I'd get in contact with Cardiff directly - if they say you need to be 18 by a certain date there is usually a reason for that and they may have to be strict. Give them a call just to be sure: https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/help/contact-us

Hey Katy!

Good luck with your application It says on their website that you only need two out of the four science subjects, so with Bio and Chem you should be ok! Their entry requirements are here if you need them: https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/study/unde.../optometry-bsc

Hi all! I'm applying a year behind as I took an extra year due to a close family bereavement so am quite nervous about applying!

Applying for G101 MSci Mathematics (MMath)

Current subjects: Mathematics (achieved A* last year), Further Maths, Economics, Financial Studies (also A* last year) and the Welsh Baccalaureate Advanced Skills Challenge.

Cardiff has always been my dream university so fingers crossed!

i enjoyed first year and don't regret choosing cardiff- i had a few in person seminars which i found overall good but not always consistent as it depended on who was teaching the seminar group. essay feedback was given promptly and i found the workload manageable for first year. they're a tad slow w communicating and giving us things like timetables and exam marks/results though. found all my modules interesting and most of the lecturers were really good as well.

Hi I'm Aathira 😊
I'm applying for optometry with a preliminary year because I do 2 btecs(health and social care and applied science) and an A-level (sociology). I understand these aren't typical subjects for optometry.and so that's why I'm applying for the preliminary year.

Heya!
I'm looking to go to Cardiff University in September 2022 to study music! I just wanted to pop onto the thread to say hi because it never hurts to talk to other people who are in the same boat to apply.

I live in one of the London boroughs so it's definitely a far journey but if I can get in then I'd love to go.
I currently study Music, History and Film Studies at A-Level!

It'll be nice to speak to people
