    I applied to Cambridge, Warwick, Bath, Exeter and Durham. Still waiting on Durham but I think bath will be my first choice anyway.
    I got 5A*s and 6As and a B at GCSE and 3 A's last year in history AS, chemistry AS and maths A2. I also do Welsh Bac and am doing AS further maths this year.

    Got a rejection from Warwick last week so I think bath is my first choice now!
    Waiting on LSE and UCL, if they don't work out I think I'll firm Bath too! But bristol is tempting too..

    Still haven't heard from Warwick!
    If it helps I didn't hear back from Warwick last year until early February, and I applied in October... They generally take the longest to reply back out of the Top 5, so prepare to do a lot of waiting.

    Yeah that's what they offered me!
    Although it's attainable, it won't motivate me as much to go for the 3 A*'s 😞
    Where abouts in Wales you living?

    Would it be a bad idea for me to firm Bristol (econ+econometrics) instead of Warwick (econ) or UCL (econ+stats)? I'm planning on going to grad school so the job prospects of the school doesn't really matter to me but I'm wondering how it might affect getting into a top tier grad school (Yale, Harvard, UC Berkeley, Oxbridge, LSE, etc.). Also, (on average) how large are classes at Bristol, UCL, Warwick, and Nottingham? Are the professors approachable?
    I'm a US applicant so I'm not familiar with the UK uni system, so sorry if these questions seem obvious.
    btw I've gotten offers from bristol, nottingham, & warwick so far. just waiting on UCL so I guess it's not even an option for me yet lol

    I wouldn't think so.
    I have an offer for it, but I would have thought that it would have been more competitive if anything, although it could just be that Bristol have lower entry criteria for these smaller courses (w/ econmetrics, management, finance etc) to incentivise high achieving students to apply there.
    Could be, depends from uni to uni really. But I'd guess more often it is slightly easier

    Hey guys, I'm new at this so I may make a couple mistakes in my first post, people seem to start by stating their grades, their uni choices and offers pending and received

    For GCSE's I got 6 A*'s, 2 A's 1 B and 1 C (French, hated that subject beyond belief)
    For AS levels I received AAAAB (Further Maths, Maths, Physics, Economics and the B in Hist)
    For A2 levels I received A*A*A (The A being in physics)

    Average module score for A2 Maths = 92
    Average module score for A2 Economics = 93
    Average module score for A2 Physics = 85 (around this number, can't find my exact UMS scores at this moment).

    I have applied for Economics at Warwick, Cambridge, Bath, Bristol and Durham. At the moment I have an unconditional offer from Bath, Bristol and Durham, I had an interview at Cambridge however my application was unsuccessful in the end. The only university I'm waiting on is Warwick. I was rejected from Warwick last year (which I was quite disappointed with). However I'm starting to get really nervous because the course at Warwick looks fantastic and the reputation for being great at Economics is great also. However I know they take a very long time to make their mind. Last year when I was rejected I believe it was in late March or early April...

    I'm still waiting Anyway well done, I think an invitation to the open day day is basically an offer, they just want you to attend in order to receive it. Btw when did you send off your application?
