    You do realise every single one of those ask for A*AA in their offers? You won't have an insurance :P
    Which is why im not considering them as my final 5 choices + i think Nottingham is AAA

    Does anybody here do the IB? I did really disappointingly in my Maths mocks, and so got predicted a 6 in HL Maths, does this mean I can't apply to for example LSE now? Thanks for any answers

    You're so lucky you're doing the whole A Level Maths in a year, so the offers in your case would be AA :P
    I know

    But I think Cambridge ask for A*AA in Y13, so I would still need to do well in my other subject, assuming I get an offer

    If you're predicted AAA is there any point at all in applying to A*AA courses?

    i wouldn't apply to Durham , they said at the open day that if your not predicted atleast A*AA ( for Economics and PPE ) they reject you straight away because apparently there's only like 0.1% of applicants who have predicted less than the entry requirements or something like that.

    Yeah Warwick said only 30 people without the grades (I'm assuming they meant predicted) applied last year. I think it's harsh because if you went to a different school you might be predicted higher grades, but I guess they have to have some way of narrowing down.

    yeah haha i remember Warwick saying that , well i think you can sort of make up for that by getting your referee to include on your AS UMS scores ( so if you got a 90% average at AS or very close to it ) then the Uni would see the school were just being harsh

    As long as result's day goes roughly to plan I'll probably be applying for Durham, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, York and Exeter. Does anyone know how fussy Durham are with AS levels? I could have gotten AAAA (+GS A) but it could be as low as AABB (+GS B) - would it be worth applying to Durham with these grades even if I was going to resit the B's?

    It was really good but I think the only thing specifically to economics was that econometrics is compulsory in the first and second year. In the talk he made a big deal out of this because apparently a lot of people hate stats so he said if you don't like it then it would be best to go somewhere where it's not compulsory.

    Other than the econometrics, was there anything worthy of a mention about the maths part of the course? The more the better.

    Yea, did you go to the 1130 talk? The talk was really engaging IMO but I realised how competitive the course is.
