Hi guys, I'm in a similar situation as you guys right now. Only thing is, my course choice isn't exactly your usual heard of courses.
Preferred University offer(s): Conditional offers from Royal Veterinary College (Uni of London), Edinburgh, Glasgow and Bristol.
Course: Veterinary Medicine
Current status: Due to take my final A-Level exams in May/June, results in August. Predicted results A*AA
Special Circumstances: single parent, retired, course very costly
If you would like to completely understand my situation, I wrote a blog post not too long ago here: http://sliceofcheese.blogspot.com/20...itute-upu.html
Also, I find the list of top unis given by JPA to be not justified.. A university like RVC would not be listed because it is a specialised one, and not able to offer a wide range of courses.
