    Maaaate are you serious! As if we've almost done identical A-Levels too haha,

    Literally I didn't want to mention how much the nightlife excited me in case I came across as 'superficial' or 'not committed enough to the course' as some people would say, but oh man the London nightlife would literally be incredible. Brb all the best bars, clubs, hangout spots and attractions in the country, all available via tube/cycle/taxi etc. and then the nightlife in the US year abroad would even top that, their house/frat parties look crazy.

    The multi cultural aspect of UCL/London in general is also cool, like it's so easy to network and meet potential employers whilst at Uni which is ideal for us Economists. Career wise kind of typical but I'm thinking finance/IB/hedge fund (Columbia uni is ideal for hedge fund) to make money, pay off debts, live the life etc. then maybe start my own business after that? Not entirely made up my mind yet but the money is attractive to say the least haha. You?
    Hahahaha, i hate those idiots on here who have a heart attack whenever anybody mentions nightlife!!!! I am tooooooo hyped for going out in London, it will be crazy! Can you imagine the parties in US aswell?! Im getting too excited hahaha!
    Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes! I am literally thinking the same thing after uni! Definitely want to spend my twenties, maybe early thirties in finance/IB/hedge fund. I don't understand why people find it such a problem that we want to do a job that pays well? Didn't know it was such a crime to work hard in order to live comfortably and be able to provide for your family! I think after I want to either work my way up as a director or something for a company or start my own business! I'm so confused as to whether I want to live in London or the US though! I think I want to spend my twentiesish in London and then move to America and settle down there? So undecided because I know I will love them both!!!

    They're the worst kind of people for sure hahaha, and me too oh my days London nightlife is the one. US University nightlife with the frat parties etc. has to be the most exciting thing ever, plus the people over there will be fascinated by our British accents which is always a bonus

    I know exactly what you mean, I hate seeing the people moaning about 'why does everyone wanna do IB' 'everyone who wants to go into finance is money hungry/will have no life'
    So sorry that I want to do a respected, well paid, exciting and constantly changing job! I think I definitely want to experience both, ideally I'd want to live in NY/California if I'm in the US and obviously there's nowhere but London in the UK for me really. London will be amazing man we've gotta get them places!!

    Lse, ucl, cambridge, Warwick and Exeter but I think even if I did get lucky enough to get cambridge, the whole London experience might be enough to make me turn them down, idk

    How did you find out you'd been pooled?

    I applied in October and got the offer in December
    Aw what your predictions are the same as mine! But I took psychology so the psychology probably doesn't sound too good

    A friend is asking me What would everyone say is the slightly easier unis to get an offer from for Econ or Econ related course like econometrics with economics and statistics with finance. Given that gcse's aren't good 0 A*s but decent A lev predicts A*AAC
    Unis in the top 25 if possible

    Exeter, leeds, Nottingham worth giving ucl and Warwick a shot (but they're more unpredictable)

    I do have a test but it's not maths, I think it's comprehension.
    I've just been reading over my personal statement and resisting the urge to projectile vomit on my laptop. It's actually the worse piece of writing I've ever produced! I really hope they don't ask me about it

    I saw on another forum that Nottingham generally are 6A*s+ though?
