It's that time of the year again people, where A-Level results have come out, and you're either going to a Uni or your choice or through Clearing. Good luck to everyone doing so, and congrats to the people who got what they wanted, and commiserations to everyone who didn't do as well as they had thought/wanted. But hold on in there!

Back to the tpoic of this thread, I seem to remember a thread like this last year, and I couldn't find one for this year. So here we go!

Thought it would be a good idea to make some kind of comprehensive list of UK Uni goers, it could make Freshers week a bit more pleasant than normal, and the chance to meet more people with similar interests etc etc.

So without much further ado:

Yeah I might arrange it Per Uni basis if enough people post, that would make things much easier to look through.

I don't think this was meant for Sixth Form, was it?

Fine taste in subjects though, though I'd swap Bio or Psych with Physics.

I got a bit below my offer, and I've still not heard from my firm (Nottingham Trent). I phoned them a lot but they didn't help at all. Them and my insurance were the only 2 unis I particularly wanted to go to. I'm ****ed for clearing.

Nowt wrong with taking a gap year or going to college to get the grades you need. It's ridiculous that in school they don't tell you how good a gap year can be especially since a lot of people are going straight into uni when they're 17/18. I didn't know what I wanted to do so I went to Glasgow Uni to do Teaching. Really good course but it wasn't for me so I dropped out after 3 months or so. Felt pretty shit about it but it was the best thing for me. Grew up a bit, made some money & realised what I really wanted to do. Now I'm going to college in the next week or so to do sound engineering.

There's some apprenticeships that you can do which then sponsor you for uni which I'm thinking of doing, but I can't really do anything until I hear from my choices.

Yeah waiting to hear back from the uni is probably worse than getting your results in. Hopefully you'll be fine though!

I should have heard back when UCAS Track was put up this morning.

Hopefully! Thanks

In response to if this is just for Freshers, in the beginning it was, but it is a much better idea for it to be for generically everyone I think, so have at it!

One of my friends started that course last year. It's supposed to be really good. But most of the people I know go to that uni, which is why i'm avoiding it.

Ah that's great! I spoke to someone at the open day who was doing the same course and he seemed really positive too.

And yeah I can totally understand that, I've tried to stay away from the places close to me where loads of people go.

Got a friend who's doing that Herts course too. It is surprisingly really good considering how low rankings all it's other courses gets. Easily the best course the Uni offers.

Thanks for the info guys, I appreciate it. Good to know I haven't signed myself up for three years of complete shite

I'm thinking of going on an exchange (from Australia to the UK) What's everyone's opinions on:

University of Essex
University of Reading
University of Nottingham
University College London

I'd be studying law but I'm probably more interested in enjoying myself than any rankings
