Update on UCAS!

I've officially received all five offers for university. I'm really happy right now and grateful that this has happened. Now all I have to do is choose my firm (1st choice) and insurance (2nd choice) out of the five but I have until May to make my decision which is quite a lot of time.

My conditional offers:

Essex: ABB but if I achieve a pass in Realising opportunities BBC

Kent: ABB

Surrey: AAB

Queen Mary's, University of London: AAB

Royal Holloway, University of London: AAB

I was going to wait till I got all five replies but I don't know how long that will take. So luckily for me I received three offers last week from Kent, Surrey and Queen Mary's.

Catch up: UCAS, Realising opportunities and Primark

I haven't blogged in absolutely ages and I have been quite busy since college started so here's an update on my life so far.

Let me start with UCAS. My university application got sent off on the 25th of October after waiting a whole week for my college to approve it. My official five choices to study Economics Bsc are:

University of Surrey
Queen Mary's, University of London
University of Kent
University of Essex
Royal Holloway, University of London

As you can see I've picked universities that are really close to home. I just don't want to be that far away in case I get home sick and if I want to come back for a while it's cheaper and easier. All I can do is wait patiently for all the universities to review my application and give me their decisions in hopefully the next couple of weeks. For some reason I always feel the urge to log into track just in case a university has replied to me but it's very very early for that.
