    I don't wish to be rude, but how are you predicted A*A*A* when you got a C? You know you'll have to get like 100% in every exam in that subject this year?


    But anyway,
    GCSES: Can't remember off the top, I think it was like 5As, 4Bs, 2Cs 2Ds and a Distinction.
    AS levels ABBB
    Predicted: AAB
    Work Experience: Battle hardened political activist...

    Also applying to: Bristol, Warwick, Nottingham, UEA
    (Bristol and Warwick are my favorite two, but I am not putting my faith in an offer. I really really liked Sheffield though )

    Because I went round my sociology teachers back, also I was on straight A's until one exam dragged it down, which I'm retaking.

    Fair play good luck getting them all I would've pestered my teachers to get me up to A*AA but I wasn't applying anywhere that actually needed it, and I thought I'd rather beat my predictions than hit them.

    Course: Politics
    GCSE: 7 As, 4 Bs
    AS: AAAU (English, History, Politics, French <- Dropped)
    A2 Predicted: AAA + Welsh Bacc Advanced.
    Offer: AAB or AA + Welsh Bacc

    Work exp - Day at the local council/Labour activist/sixth form-y politics stuff

    Acknowledgement the other day after sending UCAS off on the 21st. I'd genuinely be shocked if I got an offer with them AS grades. How long are they generally taking to send out offers anyway?

    I've applied to do Politics and Sociology, bit worried seen as I am yet to receive an offer and all these grades are much better than mine! My predicted grades do meet the required grades however - ABB
    Is anyone else in the same boat? 'Cause I'm stressing about getting an offer as Sheffield is my top choice

    I've applied for the same course! When did you apply? I got an offer about a month after I sent it, just remember that the uni has been off for Christmas and New Year

    I applied 4th November and got my offer 5th December If you meet the entry requirements and have a good PS then I'm sure you'll get one, to be honest, I barely know anyone who's applied for the same course!
