    I applied for holloway too, with their Economics Bsc offered at 'AAB' but they offered me AAB o.O

    Whats your other applications to?
    Congratulations in the offer! I applied for Economics, Politics and International Relations (BSc) here. It's my 3rd option!

    Kings - BSc Politics of the International economy
    SOAS - South Asian Studies and Economics (BA)
    RHUL
    Queen Mary's - Economics and Politics
    City - International political economics!

    (Funny how I don't do GovPol or History for A Levels though lol!)
    I love these courses, particularly the ones that focus on the global economy.

    How about you?
    Well done and all the best!! X

    Simply reading books won't improve your chances of getting into any university.
    You can read any economics book and as long as you write about it in the correct manor in your personal statement, it doesn't matter what the book is, your chances will be the same.

    what??

    Reading books will improve your application. It gives you a wider perspective of economics, much wider than your curriculum at A level. It will help especially in interviews, not so much on the personal statement.

    What I meant by my first statement was that just reading books alone won't improve your chances, like you say, you'll have to apply what you read to A level economics, an interview or your personal statement.
    What I meant after that was that it doesn't really matter what books you read (as the person I was replying to asked for books which would improve his chances) as long as you refer to them correctly in your personal statement.

    Sorry I should have explained better to start with

    I agree with this, I've had to advise a few friends to actually apply what they have discovered. I then get told that they have literally only read a chapter and don't have a clue how to apply it ^_^. Otherwise, all books are good.

    I was, however, told that admissions tutors are sick of hearing about 'Freakconomics' and The 'Undercover Economist.' :3

    Personally, I discussed Mankiw's 'Macroeconomics' (the IS-LM model construction specifically) and NBER papers (finding Friedman's permanent income hypothesis). Application was easy as I used these to discuss my EPQ research.

    Just received this information via email regarding my application to UCL:

    'I intend to recommend that an offer be sent to you through UCAS in the near future. Before such an offer can be made and communicated, however, it is a UCL requirement that you attend an Open Day in the Economics Department.'

    'I am afraid that if we have not heard from you [regarding Open Day attendance] by the deadline of Friday 22nd November 2013, we shall have to withdraw our intention to make you an offer.'

    Thank you.

    Yes, I just wanted to give people a heads up of the next stage in the application process as I hadn't seen someone get this email yet - or any response so far from UCL for Economics.

    Thanks, and neither have I. You must be one of the first to receive it.
