A- Level - Results - Which Uni

PigpenPigpen Trusted RegularRegistered Posts: 331
Any of you folk dealing wit A-Level results today? Stressful or what! And I have the other sons GCSE's next Thursday !

My Boy got ABC in his but Belfast Uni want BBB and won't tell him either way whether he has a place or not !!!!! They say it may take up to a week - Useful - Not!

On the flip side Newcastle have offered him a place and are 10 places higher up the league tables than Belfast - Anyone got any experience of Newcastle Uni ?

    No experience, but isnit that where one of Fergies daughters is going?

    Newcastle Uni does have a very good reputation. friend of mine's son was going to go a couple of years ago to do Agriculture(in Newcastle??), went to Uni specilsing in Agri instead.

    Extras for son -good nightlife, for you excellant transport links!

    Cheers Jan

    It may be fine but they won't tell him either way ??? Which isn't terribly helpful is it


    I think he has decided to go to Newcastle now - It was one he didn't look at before but seems to be a good one
