    My average is 94, which seems to pale in comparison to all the 95+ floating out there. I seem to be quite an average candidate for Econ at Cambridge. I think I read earlier on in this thread that you want to apply to Cambridge as well? What's your UMS average?

    I'd like my fifth university to be an AAA offer university, that's the only thing I can think of.
    94 is good enough, trust me

    What are people's thoughts about lancaster uni for economics? I went to look the other day and I really liked it and they do a really good study abroad programme which entry requirements are A*AA. I know it's not the same as bath or nottingham etc and it's not Russell Group group however if I chose to go to Lancaster over Bath for instance would that really affect my future career and opportunities that much? (Don't want to go in to IB so don't think the "target" and "semi target" criteria would apply to me)
    Thanks😊

    Omg same actually m1 pulled my maths down I got 100 100 97 94 93 and then 80 in m1, it was my last exam though and I'm hoping it looks like an anomoly aha

    Ooh I was torn between selwyn and queens, but I think I'm going to go for queens. Yeah I like leeds and plus there are so many places in the degree I'd hope I'd get an offer

    Oh, it was my last exam too. But it wasn't an anomaly - I'm just awful at Mechanics

    Queens is really nice as well. Yeah, you're certain to get an offer with your AS grades, I think!!

    I'm pretty bad at it too, but I'll try and play it off as an anomaly :cool:

    Ah I'm quite doubtful if I'm honest because I don't think I'll interview well plus with my B in Chinese but meh, I got 4 As in the rest so hopefully that wont be dwelled on too much. I'd love to get into Warwick though, so I'm really hoping I get in there, Cambridge is more of an aspirational what if, if that makes any sense

    Your ASs are great too and Selwyn seems like a cool college

    I don't think I interview well at all :/ I think you'll probably get into Warwick though, but I don't really know about Warwick admissions. Your application looks good on paper though

    Your application sounds fab too, it'll be weird if we end up with interviews on the same day :eek:

    Yeah I hope so, warwick's probably my favourite (excluding Cambridge)

    I am looking to study Economics at university. I have achieved 5A* 4A at GCSE, and i reckon that i will be predicted A* A A , at A level. A's being in further maths and physics, and A* being in economics. iI completed A-Level maths in 1 year and achieved an A.

    A level maths -82 ums ), will be predicted an A in further maths for next year as i achieved an A in maths in this year
    as level economics- 90ums
    as physics - 87ums

    I will be retaking C3 & C4 to achieve my A* in maths.

    I have gained loads of work experience in investment management firms and HSBC, have gone to loads of lectures and read about 8 books on economics

    What are the best universities that i can hope for, that will accept me with these grades?

    With those predictions and results you can pretty much apply anywhere

    Although you should probably be aware cambridge and lse may be a bit risky as they want ums marks and I think you'd be a bit below the average applicant for cambridge

    Hi guys , i have a question, do you think it is possible to apply for PPE at oxford and then apply for economics at 4 other unis ? Will i be able to tailor the personal statement for this or will i end up without any offers at all? I want to do ppe but if i dont get in to oxford i would want to study economics instead. I got full marks in my economics AS and predicted 3 A* in maths econ and biology A2.
    Any replys are appreciated !

    Yes it's true, although only for the Economics course from what I've seen this year.

      It will be hard but is possible! The issue is that you have to tailor your personal statement to your first choice uni so if oxford PPE is your first choice then you need to include the relevant phil and politics but it depends where else your applying for? Have you considered E&M at oxford instead? Would be much easier to tailor it. Where else you thinking of applying? We do the same subjects!

      no this should be fine as your predictions are higher than all the offers
