    Applying for Actuarial Science.


    GCSEs weren't brilliant compared to most on her....3A*s, 8As,2Bs. AS were AAAAA (dropped chemistry). Predicted A*AA (Geography, Maths, Economics, plus A in GS and EPQ). Got over 90%+ though at AS, so would like at least another A* prediction but oh well :rolleyes:

    Not actually heard of ANY other HW applicants yet so looking forward to 'meeting' some on this thread. Has anyone actually been and looked at it? My parents refused to take me up there having left 2 other open days after 30 mins due to hating the uni
