I think there's loads of universities that do Medieval History or Medieval Studies.. definitely more than ten, anyway.

Nottingham is apparently #18 overall.. which is cool, I'm grateful to be able to go there, and do the course I'm on.

Don't you need 'seven Cs'. Har de har.

What irks me is the sheer amount of shit-stains that go to top 20 uni's and just get absolutely leathered and piss away the chance they had there.

Which goes against what I said about "doesn't matter what uni you go to" but throwing away the chance to get a qualification that I fucking paid for* isn't on :x

* = today's UK tax payers pay for today's student loans.

Going back to the original argument, for my degree they actually ask for 3 Standard Grades (GCSE-equiv), but if your Highers (A-Levels) are good enough they'll ignore them. I think they only come into play if you did bad in your highers and they use them for compensatory.

Most of the uni's I applied for wanted grade B or above in GCSE English and Maths, but I pressume A Level grades matter more, especially since I wasn't applying to do English or Maths

Yeah well, i'm perfectly happy being miserable by myself.

And i'm perfectly aware that that made no sense.
