I'm in Y12 so am definitely getting serious about brushing up my list of unis. I'd be an early applicant (due to Oxford application) so I don't have super long to get my 5 choices nailed down. I'm finding it quite difficult to decide though, particularly in choosing a safety option, so I'd appreciate any advice on how to go about choosing one. I'm not from the UK, so my parents didn't have insights for me. If anyone has any uni suggestions, I'd love those too!
Here's a little about me:
I want to apply to Biomedical Sciences programs, and I like ones with focus on research (this is why I really like the sound of Oxford BMS)
My list is currently:
The maybes are unis recommended by friends. I haven't looked too deeply into them, so it would be great to hear any opinions you have on them.
I'm looking for an academically rigorous course.
I'm predicted A* A* A* A* (should my safeties be 1 grade down or is that too formulaic?)
I have not done an EPQ but I have done an independent research project.
I've done relevant work ex and shadowed neuroscience researchers.
I've done lots of volunteering with Alzheimer's patients
I read relevant books & papers, so the PS is pretty well stocked.
