    GCSE's 3A*s 7As
    Predicted AAA -(abb last year)

    I sent it on the 25th of October

    I have applied for industrial econ at Nottingham though, and there are less applicants so that may have affected my offer.

    Good Luck!
    Im also applying for Industrial Economics at Nottingham. How do you know applicants are low this year?

    Sorry, I purely meant that in general, for small courses (only 30 places) such as this one, there are less total applicants so its quicker to process. That said, its only luck really when you get your offers.

    What are your grades?

    My application was sent this morning at 9AM and got an offer from Kent (ABB) at 6pm!
    That was ridiculously fast. Congrats on that offer!

    ^_^ Birmingham offer of AAA with the option to make it unconditional if I firm.

    Sadly for them, Bath have given me a conditional (A*AA) to firm with. Brum will probably be my insurance unless Nottingham are willing to offer AAA :3 (Not going to happen.)

    For any other Birmingham applicants: I believe they received my application on the 25th October, was predicted A*A*A, AS:AAAB + FM(A pred), GCSEs: 3A*s 9As, strong PS (I believe, you can check on stalking page).

    Same here! Really pleased since last year someone at my school got the same offer, but they eventually made the offer unconditional despite him picking UCL over Birmingham...

    So, wait, did they firm with UCL and were given an unconditional insurance by Birmingham? That would be epic if that was the case...

    Yeah I think so. May have been Nottingham instead of UCL, but Birmingham still changed it to an unconditional

    Haha, that would be amazing! Really takes the pressure off on results day as you know whatever happens you're still headed to a quality university. Hopefully once I've got all of my offers I can ask Birmingham whether they could do that for me.

    For those who have got the Birmingham offer I have a question. If you did get another offer from a uni you would rather go to (touch wood!) then if you had placed bham as firm for the unconditional reasons, and the other uni as insurance, could you still go to the other uni if got the grades?

    I think if you firm an offer you have to go to it if you meet the grades (or in this instance you would have to go there) unless you want to drop out of the UCAS progress altogether. So for example, if I had an A*AA as my first choice and an AAA as my insurance, I couldn't choose to go to the insurance if I got A*A*A in August

    UCL, nice. I'm trying to gauge the type of candidate that applies for UCL, what AS grades/GCSEs did you get?

    I got AAABC (B in Further Maths, C in Spanish)
    Carrying on Maths, RS and Government and Politics, predicted A*AA
    In my GCSEs I got 9A*s 3As and a Distinction in IT

    UCL is my dream
