    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.

    Further details:

    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.

    Course: Philosophy
    GCSE: 3A*s, 5As, 2Bs
    AS-Level: A - psychology A - English lit B - law B - maths
    A-Level: predicted A*A*A (Although am retaking stats so should be able to get A*A*A*, and an A in law - Just had an awful day and ended up with 2Cs in 2 exams ugh)
    Further details: Work experience on a medical ethics committee, lots of further reading, philosophy society
    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 )

    Honestly I don't know if I stand a chance at this point hoping for the best though and I'm so glad UCL do interviews!

    Course: English BA
    GCSE: 2 A*s, 2 As, 4 Bs, 2 Cs, Intermediate WBQ PASS.
    AS-Level: A Geography, B English Language & Literature, C Economics, D Biology.
    A-Level: A* Economics, A* English Language & Literature, A Geography.
    Further details: Currently on a gap year, with a placement at my local newspaper. Looking to broaden my reading and hone my writing.

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