    Just received the undergraduate prospectus for Warwick, love the look of this campus uni! Thankyou Ninjapandaa for getting me into it.

    Any recommendations for any other similar campus unis? Right now, I am thinking of keeping Warwick, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester/Sheffield and Leicester as my top 5. My dad says I am aiming low considering I am predicted A*s in two subjects next year but I don't know.. Also, I can not find any other university with ABB requirements other than Leicester and I do want one as a backup.

    Oh, oh, also.. (so many questions!)..I am looking into Glasgow university as my fourth option instead. I love the idea of studying in Scotland. Anything you know about the economics course there? Is it rated highly, lowly, averagely? I do know it is a pretty good russell group university by itself.
    Grade entry profiles don't matter if you like the universities.

    I've found the following website very valuable:

    http://university.which.co.uk/

    You can filter courses by UCAS entry points, type of programme, and percentage of applicants who receive offers. So for instance, you could look up ABB universities by filtering for courses which require 320 points.

    Woo yay warwick! Bath's a campus uni too and that's meant to be pretty good I think, and if you're predicted two A*s shouldn't be out of reach. I don't know if you've been but the actual city of Bath is beautiful, I've not been to the campus itself but it's meant to be nice I hear
    If you wanted a backup (depending on how high your grades were this year) you could always just go for an AAB uni rather than ABB?
    Sorry I can't be any help with glasgow, I only really considered it briefly because I wanted the option to do optional language modules (chinese) and it doesn't do that aha, although I did hear it's a really expensive place to live in

    Sorry but this is a thread for applicants for 2015 entry, maybe make a new thread and you'll get some better feedback although I can't see why you wouldn't get into a russell group if you work hard this year

    Well, they were lower than expected on results day but Bath still took me! Then two remarks later, I would have been in a position for adjustment. Just wish the examiners got it right the first time round!

    Hi guys,
    did better than expected at A2 (2A*2A) and A at AS FM. Going for Oxford (PPE), UCL, Warwick, Nottingham (Straight Econ everywhere else). Am also considering LSE but unsure about UMS. Should I apply with these UMS?
    Maths (A*) 90%, History (A*) 96%, Physics (A) 87%, Spanish (A) 80% AS FM (84%)

    Will my FM percentage be enough?

    Yeah they're fine, but work harder for your AS levels

    LSE PPE? I don't think they would ask for UMS (I think it's only for straight economics and any course with maths in the name) but even then you're in a good position to apply.

    I just did bio maths fm and econ for my AS and i got AAAB (B in bio) do you think this puts me in a worse position to apply to the top schools because i have a B in bio? Or will they not really mind as much because its a kind of unrelated subject..?
    I got high UMS in econ (197/200) and maths (284/300) then lower A in FM (254/300)
    Do you think this is good enough to apply to oxbridge? Or would the B in bio really bring me down?
    Thanks

    Ah well done, yeah I think this year there have been more issues with marking presumably because without January exams there are so many more papers to mark?
    Do you mind if I ask what you got?

    Hi I got this at AS: Maths - A
    Economics - A
    Chemistry - A
    Further Maths - B


    But I'm a little worried because my top Uni Choices Oxford, LSE and Warwick. Which are all competitive for the Economics course and I got a B in an AS . Would I still stand a chance if I applied to Oxford and LSE with AAAB, (95% average in Economics) but a B in further maths which i am retaking modules in to get an A? Or am I just wasting 2 of my 5 choices?

    I just hope and pray they give me a chance. I might try visiting the unis and asking current students if they know any people who got a B in AS and still got in

    Would LSE ask for UMS for the maths and economic course (which is run in the maths department) ?
