    I am predicted either AAB or ABB. However, I don't have an AS grade for my english since I am doing this in a year throughout year 13.

    Not that hard if your grades are good, hard if they're not.

    It's ALL in your grades.

    I'd say you'll get an offer.

    When I wanted to apply for music a few years ago they wanted AAAB. For music? Seriously?

    They wanted AAAB in one sitting or AAAA in two, I personally think is a joke considering music is a talent rather than a learn-able skill. Hey ho I can't complain, I get wasted with my lecturers every day

    How hard is it for Philosophy? I want to go there sooo bad. I visited it and loved it so much!
    I think AAAA first sitting gets you an unconditional offer. I did Philosophy there for 2 years before starting honours, its great and really interesting. The only thing is the metaphysical stuff is quite boring (for me) but I know lots of people that preferred that to the ethics.(don't know how thats possible) The ethics part is great. It's quite a hard subject, you do logic in second year and that is a nightmare! There is quite a lot of reading too.

    AAAA secures you an unconditional. Politics and Philosophy complement each other very well.
