    How did your Interviews go? I felt that the Management one went ok, but the Economics was horrible, very Maths based. Can sense a rejection coming my way.
    Everyone at Trinity College got interviewed by all 3 tutors simultaneously and received only one interview, questions were obscure but it felt alright, the logic questions I answered well and the maths questions seemed simple, although I didn't answer one correctly. Only two management questions were asked which I could have formulated a better response but under intimidating pressure of the management tutors gaze it wasn't perfect aha.

    I haven't received anything from ucl apart from the acknowledgement email. How did your interview go?
    Received a offer for Economics and Business but for straight Economics just a acknowledgment letter also The interview* was decent thank you, could have formulated better responses to be honest but was decent under interview pressure. I mentioned to the management tutor I want to get into science and technology entrepreneurship/management and he said 'so why economics?' Haha, had to place such a passionate speech to redeem myself.

    It's really up to you. No one can say which is better for your interest. Economics is one of, if not the most, competitive courses at Cambridge. There's reason for that too... it's the top establishment for Economics and its extremely employable.

    What do you mean? It's common for teachers to predict an A* if you get 90%+ at AS.

    Probably not enough applicants. Always thought AAA for their required grades was too high for them, when there are others more reputable with lower requirements.
