    I saw on another forum that Nottingham generally are 6A*s+ though?
    I have an offer from Nottingham with 7 A's and 4 B's at GCSE

    I wouldn't buy that, I have an offer from Nottingham with literally only 2 As at GCSE.

    My school was extremely underperforming but I still wouldn't worry too much about it

    Cheers, I'm 100% sure it was down to the interview, as there would've been so many applicants with better grades. Good Luck for Cambridge on Saturday, I saw you applied earlier in the thread.

    Thanks! I'm buzzing, was always a bit nervous when Warwick rejected me a day before Oxford interviews but I'm so glad I got it! Now waiting on LSE, but there's no real point, I only applied to A*AA courses, so I won't have an insurance.

    Thanks! I was surprised as well because I was sure my GCSEs weren't good enough but I guess it's only Oxbridge and LSE that focus a bit in them.

    A lot of people have Nottingham and Bristol offers so you probably have a good chance, and no news from Warwick is sometimes good news, what are you stats if you don't mind me asking?

    They're not bad at all! I know people with very similar grades who have offers from Bristol and Nottingham, one has ABBC at AS and has a Notts offer so I'm pretty confident you will get those.
    I don't know anyone with a Warwick offer for straight Econ apart from people on TSR but I think you have a fair shot!

    Okay how about Ucl for Econ with stats and lse stats with finance?
    They're the same as Econ in the first yr anyway.
