    18th October it was received by UCAS
    I got an offer the same day too and I applied the same day. What's your first choice?

    To be honest though, UCL is a lot more prestigious than Bath, is in a decent location where you can get work experience. But truly if you feel like you'd be better at Bath then pick Bath.
    yeah, i would pick UCL over Bath anyday if im honest ( originally didnt think so haha) the only thing which would sway me to bath would be that the A* has not been specified in my offer, whilst if UCL give me an offer they'll want an A* in Maths. Maths is my strongest subject and i stand the biggest chance of getting an A* in that, but still...

    If I were you then I would leave this decision until you get an offer/rejection from UCL. No point splitting hairs over it at this stage. Although definitely UCL. It's a target uni which you should consider since it seems you want to go into banking.

    Thanks. Have you received your interview yet (sorry if you've posted and I've missed it)?

    Not yet; I will do it at some point this weekend. I'll let you know what they say.

    By the way, have you applied to LSE? If so, what stage are you at with your application there?

    Yup! 9th of December!

    I'm currently have less than 1 week left on my 5 week waiting period for LSE as it should end this Friday but I honestly don't expect a reply considering how many applications they have to go through.

    How is Target 2.0 preparation going for everyone here who's doing it?

    I've been made captain of our team, but I'm struggling with our main argument at the moment given that we can't seem to make our minds up on it...

    We got a late entry since another school dropped out. It's going alright considering we only have 2 weeks to prepare. I'm glad I'm not the team captain though. After the UCAS, it's a bit of a break. Haven't a clue as to our argument though.

    So what my team's concept is for now (I'm a team captain) was that different people had different jobs to do: for example, I tried to find data about consumer confidence and spending, wages, investment and business confidence, other people researched house prices, fiscal policy, prices of raw materials, unemployment etc which contribute to price level. Each of us made a few slides and made a few senteces to sum up each 'section' and if it is going to cause inflation and if therefore want to change interest rate. Then I will put all the slides together and try to think about the general conclusion and add a few sentences about QE. Depending how that goes, some improvements will probably be needed.

    I'm not captain of our team but nonetheless, I really can't be bothered to do any work for it. I don't even fully believe in our arguments but as my other team mates aren't that great , I don't really think we'll do well in any case.

    Yeah I'm pretty much doing the same thing as you, but focusing on asset prices and housing instead of spending and investment

    I'm also team captain, and two weeks ago my teacher broke his wrist and ankle and we hadnt yet started anything. We have recently started and havent progressed very far. We have done most of our research but are completely unsure on how to approach the presentation. Any tips or advice? Our first round is 26th November.

    To be honest, our group isn't doing anything much for Target 2.0 either. We're going to start soon but I think we're going to end up with a half-baked presentation. I don't think any team is actually putting in massive amounts of work to be honest and I reckon most schools just end up winging it for the regional heats and they may do some more serious research, if anything, if they get to the national finals.

    I totally agree, our heat is on the 28th and we've done absolutely nothing. We'll probably muster up something within the week before but none of us really care, just an excuse to miss school tbh

    To be honest I don't really know how you could put it together. We had a meeting today and I'm pretty confused as to how we're going to structure it, so I'm just doing my part with the notes and hoping it comes together on our next team meeting on Wednesday
