Hi Guys,

I got rejected from Exeter and they said that i do meet the entry requirements, without stating which one.

But i got an offer from Strathclyde which sort of had the same requirements so I’m confused.

I’m waiting for Aberdeen to get back to me, if they give me an offer, should i go for Aberdeen or Strathclyde?

You know unis don't give offers based on just the entry requirements right?

hey I am sorry to hear that but they also consider your extra actives what you have done outside of your course etc.
But did they not make an offer for other course tho because most of the time they do make an offer if they reject you for that specific course.

Sorry to hear that. Unis do look at your PS and extra curriculars and stuff too.

Tbh nobody can tell you which one to pick! Have a look at the different modules taught, any opportunities for placements, social life, accommodation options, student satisfaction etc. Also look at where grads end up working. Hopefully that will help you decide. Good luck!

I was under the impression Exeter (in particular) gave offers to people who met their entry requirements (for the majority of courses). That's what they said in an email I received way back when I was applying in 2019

I think the OP made a typo and meant 'I don't meet ...'

Ask them to elaborate for you - could be you needed a 7 in gcse maths and it’s not the A levels that are the issue.

I applied at Exeter, Qmul, Aberdeen and Strathclyde

Exter and QMUL rejected my application, strathclyde offered me a place and I’m waiting for Aberdeen to get back to me.

Tuition at Aberdeen is 7-8K cheaper than Strathclyde and thus I’m confused if I should go with strathclyde or Aberdeen
