Can you REALLY expect to find a place in clearing or adjustment at a decent uni? Watch

    hello!!!! that would be the course I'm hopefully taking at Exeter uni. how come its so unpopular?! I can't find anyone else either I think its a great combination!!!
    I couldn't agree more, they are the perfect compliment to each other. Added to that, History and (to a slightly lesser extent) Archaeology are popular enough individually, and a fair few people seem to take Archaeology and Ancient History. I've heard it argued repeatedly that many people don't pick Archaeology because it lacks high paying opportunities later in life - but I don't see why that would affect this combination any more than the others :dontknow: either way, hopefully this means that places are easier for us!

    Thats okay, you have been very helpful

    Just wanted to sort of talk it through, and so make sure I wasnt going mad!

    Im not sure Birmingham is the uni for me so I am going with my friend, who is in a similar situation, to have a look around. I have already been once.

    I am also going to visit Nottingham, Southampton and Exeter over the next 2 weeks. I know it may seem pointless, due to the fact know one will be there and neither will probably be in adjustment. Its just important I visit them all so I know not to make a mistake. Plus I cannot get anymore hours during the week at work, so I might as well do something vaguely productive
    Gaining more information makes sense. But you are correct that universities without students are odd places and hence hard to assess.

    Oh I hope so, I'm so worried about results day but thats actually made me feel a lot better. Exeter are harsh if you miss the grades but you never know it may give me a better chance!! Its so refreshing to talk to someone who is passionate about this combination, I find each of the subjects facinating, I went to a lecture on the ancient history/archaeology and didn't feel it offered as much as his/arch. I can't wait! I had such difficulty choosing what subject I wanted to study but nothing grabbed me like these, good luck and hope you get in!!
