    Hi,

    Question - if someone linked their website in their personal statement, are admission tutors likely to go on that site?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    you will need to email the central admissions office ([email protected]) about this
    Hi,

    I have just send my application. However I didn't mention my predicts. Should my referee email uni with predicts? Or uni asks by himself when needs? Or it is better to email anyway?

    And I am internation EU student. When will I receive an answer from warwick?

    Speed of Decisions

    Last year, we tended to hold on to applications we were not sure about, for quite a while, in order to be in a better position to make a decision when we had a more concrete idea of how many places we would have available, and the standard of other applicants in a similar position. This, however, comes at a cost to the applicant, as they would like to know earlier whether they have, or have not, been offered a place.

    This year, therefore, we will aim to make much quicker decisions for the majority of people. The consequence of this, however, is that places will fill up quickly (as we are more decisive), and so we would encourage you to apply as early as possible in the cycle.
    Seriously this hasn't happened, surely admissions tutors know the quality of students they want based on previous years...? The decision making is taking quite a while.

    Hi,
    When you say you have info to check, does that mean that if we sent out UMS within our UCAS application, you will be checking them or do you assume them to be the truth and verify them later.
    As this is to do with the processing of applications, rather than the decisions, I don't have an answer. I would imagine the admissions team reserve the right to check such information out if they wish to do so.

    (Original post by MWM)
    In your own view, do you regard the UMS achieved in the A levels done as more important in the application process than GCSE's or less important. So if someone applied with AS or even post A level UMS of 95%+ in all subjects would this be enough to give that applicant an edge over others who did better than him at GCSE but have average UMS ?
    As I've said with other similar questions earlier in the thread, it really depends on the overall context of the application, and it's impossible to give an answer without all of the other contextual information on the table. I could certainly imagine situations where I would be more interested in UMS than GCSE, as easily as I could imagine a situation where the reverse is true.

    I don't know about "likely", but if it's information in your statement then it's certainly something which we could look into in more detail (equivalently with a specific award you have earned, or project you have mentioned)

    Hi,
    yes, you should get your referee to email in to the University ([email protected]) , quoting your name and UCAS number to help things along.

    I can't say exactly when you will receive an answer from Warwick, but I hope it will be soon, although please remember there is a break for the Christmas vacation.

    Ok, but I'm looking at specific admissions data for the department which states that the number of offers we've made at a specific point in time, for 2011 compared to 2010, is up a massive amount.

    Just because the decision making is taking a while for you doesn't necessarily negate my earlier statement that we are, on average, aiming to, and succeeding in, making quicker decisions this year compared to last year.

    Hi,
    I can't say whether or not we would be able to give you an offer without seeing your whole application, but we would certainly consider you with that level of results, and a good IB profile. You may wish to consider the Warwick AWARDS scheme (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/study/unde.../apply/awards/) in order to allow you to explain more about your specific schooling circumstance.

    Hey ,

    I am currently starting year 12 and I was just wondering if unis like UCL and Warwick have GCSE requirements for economics or economics with statistics.
    I got 6 A*s 4As at GCSE, and i'm doing Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Philosophy&Ethics for AS and A2. I do quite a bit of extra circurlar like school plays & musicals, I play the piano, I am in my school Football and cricket teams, I am doing DofE Gold, and general duties around the school. I may do EPQ in the summer and i recently had a few days work experience at Deutesch Bank on the trading floor

    Can anyone asses my chances of getting into UCL or warwick?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks!!

    No one can tell you your chances of getting an offer and be entirely correct. You seem to have a good GCSE record and your choices for A-level subjects include the three prefered subjects. If your predicitons are similar to the offer for the course there should be no reason not to apply. I wish you the best of luck with your application.

    Hi, I am studying AS levels currently after achieving 10 astars and one a at gcse, and am now studying Maths, Economics, Physics and History. For L100 at Warwick, is not having further maths a hindrance to my chances of gaining at offer? Also, i achieved A star in maths at GCSE and am likely to be predicted an A star for A2? Thanks

    Hi,
    I can't give you an assessment of your chances in getting an offer from Warwick, but I can say that out only subject-specific requirement for our core L100 course is a grade A at Maths A2 level, and all our applicants typically have a very strong overall academic record.

    Hi,
    no, as I mention in the opening few posts, we do not have an implicit or explicit further maths requirement, and treat it similarly to the other strong subjects which you are currently studying. Our only maths requirement, for L100, is a grade A at maths A2 level.

    My friend goes to school in a country where there are A-levels but there are no AS levels and A*s. In that case, what kind of offer could she get if she is successful?

    Thank you.

    May I just ask, have you started rejecting people quickly aswell or is it just the speed of offers that are up on last year?

    I ask this because I sent my application off a while back and have not received a response; so just trying to put it all into context.

    Thanks.

    This must sound a very odd question but is it possible to study the module North America: Themes and Problems (AM102) in the first year as module 5 (option)?

    It's not vital that I know, I just thought it looked very interesting.

    Thank you.
