    I thought Warwick was your 2nd choice? Or is it more you're unsure of having a high insurance?

    Does anyone here know if top unis look at your AS grades if you apply post-A Levels with A2 grades in hand? I had a B in AS Chemistry and dropped it, but I was only 3 marks off an A so I'm considering resitting one exam if top unis like Cambridge, UCL etc will still look at my AS results if I apply after a gap year.

    I doubt it, I've got 5 offers (including camb) and I have a B in the subject I dropped at AS

    Some people have, I think they give out offers in batches, the first batch have gone out as quite a few people on this thread hold UCL offers. I added UCL onto my application in dec so still waiting, not expecting to hear anything until mid feb - early march tbh. Anyway I'm sure you'll hear from them soon

    Hmm the only way you'd miss your Camb offer and meet the Warwick one is if you get an A* in Maths and As in the rest. Since you have high UMS at AS I don't see how you could get Bs so Notts is out of the question. It depends on if you'd want both your offers hinging on you getting an A* or not as to whether you go for Warwick or Leeds. But I think since you're doing FM, the A* Maths should come quite naturally imo.

    Yeah you're right it's just that my cambridge offer doesn't include maths so if I had warwick in my insurance is really have to have an A* in maths to miss my camb grades but get into warwick

    Have many people applied to Nottingham , if so what kind of offers are they getting, also what do employers and people think of the Uni
    Hi, I am holding an offer of A*ABB for Economics and Spanish at Nottingham. GCSE's weren't outstanding so you'll probably get an offer soon! From what I gather, Nott is very highly rated by employers, especially Investment Banks

    Just wondering if many people have heard back from Warwick? I have offers from Birmingham, Nottingham, Bath and a rejection from Oxford but haven't heard anything from Warwick.

    On another note - I'm torn between Warwick (assuming I get it ) and Bath. I slightly prefer the atmosphere at Bath and much prefer the city, but obviously Warwick is so much better on paper... Just wondering what other people would do?
