Oh noooo, six exams!? Can't believe you've got so much going on at the same time! Hopefully you'll ace them though bet you can't wait till September, are you a little nervous about moving out and things?
Aw congratulations on all your offers! I want to apply to Sheffield and Manchester next year
Yeah you have a while to choose your uni, I can't wait to go and see some on open days!
I have three exams next week.. So nervous. good luck for yours though xx
Hey how you doing? How's your A2s going? Finding them much harder than AS? What unis have you applied to and have you received any offers yet? xxx
Was just looking at the Leeds applicants page and found that your applying for the same course as me .. Eco/Hist
so rare to find someone doing the same course, everyone at school thinks I'm crazy combining the 2 subjects!
congrats on your offer .. I'm also predicted AAB so hopefully I hear back from them soon
where else have you applied/heard from?
Hi how're you? Still figuring out which uni's you want to go to, or have you applied at this point? Good luck if you've submitted a UCAS application.
Omg you're so sweet for even remembering! Smiling like mad right now, haha. Wasn't bad - 5A*, 4A, 2B. The B being in maths and statistics lol .. I'm deffo not taking maths A level. I really can't take it anymore.. The last couple of months of GCSE maths was sooo painful! Haha. But that's ok, I'm considering medicine now as it seems very interesting. Idk though, my grades might hold me back as I didn't do as brilliantly as the usual medical student would.
How were your AS results!? Which was like weeks ago sorry! xxx
Ooh, yes actually, Birmingham does look good. Plus it's slightly higher up on the league tables and not as cold as Manchester
I have far too little econ on my PS - I'm really bad at developing points and like, my opinions on economic things - but apart from that it's going ok. Most of mine is just the reading I've done though - although judging by thestudentroom ones it shouldn't matter too much.
Oh yes, gosh, I remember seeing the massive forms you have for EPQ! Woah, that's a lot of reading! And, yeah, it's definitely brilliant prep for uni with all the independent study and everything.
Haha, when you said you had a car sitting and waiting I thought at first you meant that you were about to take your test Is it a... nice car? I would ask you what brand or whatever but I'm really bad with cars :/
I'm mostly using the internet for prospectuses/prospecti. Your post comment made me lol .
Omg, I've just realised you're an exalted member. Clearly you've been far more sociable then me
I haven't ordered many prospectuses (prospecti?) to be honest - I didn't get organised enough! I might email some of the admissions departments, that's a good idea. Judging by the grades needed for straight history/straight economics, most universities are looking about the same as Manchester.
On Liverpool Uni's website, it says 'Please note that this programme will not be running for 2013 ':
For PS, DEFINITELY emphasis on academic stuff. Mine's about a 3:1 ratio to academic stuff, but even then I'm pushing it a bit. Essentially, unis want to see you're interested in the subject, and the extra curricular stuff is only to show you're likely to work well independently, like you need to in a university's environment.
Your EPQ sound really interesting! Lots of articles and things to mine through, though! Yeah, I guess it's worth an AS, and so it requires that much work, which is why I didn't do it.
Good luck on your driving exam! (and your EPQ and your PS )
Oh my gosh, they force you to do EPQ! :O I thought about taking it for a while, but I'm glad I didn't. When do you have to give it in? Blimey, that would have ruined my summer. Ooh, but what's your topic? I'm curious.
See you soon! (metaphorically speaking, of course )
Oh ma days, I used a lot of smileys this time..
Hello! And, yes I did have a nice holiday
Btw, I noticed you included Liverpool in the list of unis you're considering, but they have stopped their Economics and Social History course for 2013 entry (aka, us)
For PSs, have you noticed the History with Economics one? I think they're also an Economics and Economic History one somewhere, but I think it's on studential rather than studentroom. There's also, like, Economics and Maths ones and history and MFLs ones which I've found help show me how to balance stuff. That said, my history paragraph is still far bigger then my economics one So I still need to finish my economics section, but apart from that I should have the draft done. How's yours going?
Continued above - word character limit
Yeah, I looked at the studentroom and studential ones - they were really good. Tbh, I've found there's only so much school can do. We had a whole 'UCAS day' which I especially went in for when I was bunking for an exam and it was utterly useless. I think the best thing to do is read other people's - I've found even, like, medicine ones have been handy for structure and tone and things.
Noooo, your parents don't like history? History is super-handy! It teaches you how to read and write really well, analytical skills, seeing both the detail and the big picture simultaneously and you can get jobs in banking, marketing, other areas of business, museums and archives etc, teaching, law... Although I guess with economics you're statistically more likely to get job so I get where you're coming from.
Btw, I found Reading Uni does a History/Econ course at AAB, but it's quite low down league-table wise, compared with other AAB courses (eg, the ones at Sussex).
I really hope your re-marks go ok, and I hope you reply sooner than I did (sorry!)
