I thought it was about time we had a thread for all those considering applying to UCL for 2016 entry. Below is a template format for sharing the details of your application. I suggest deleting/substituting qualification types as appropriate, as well as specifying what subjects have been taken.
Feel free to also share a little about yourself, and any questions and thoughts you may have about UCL, the course you want to apply for, living in London etc. etc.

Also I am a maths/English tutor (probably not relevant - although perhaps may help for 'transferable skills' Also I am the secretary on the student exec at my college (also probably irreverent )

Are UCL strict on the 'extra AS' despite me exceeding the requirements? The competition is high so I'm unsure on this.
