    I've been emailing the Nottingham admissions tutor and she said that all decisions will be made by the end of the week so you'll hear by the end of next week at the latest!

    Received an offer from Nottingham for econ today, really didn't think they would give me an offer for 38 points IB only! I was under the impression that most unis have some sort of requirements regarding HL grades, but apparently not. The better for me! Looks like it could be a perfect choice as insurance, should I fail to get a 6 in math HL.

    Yeah, I've been talking to their admissions tutor and they said decisions will be made be at the end of the week.

    Praying for an AAA offer to insure with, probably won't get one, though, hehe.

    Don't worry, many other people (including me) applied 3 months ago and haven't been asked for UMS at all.

    I emailed them a while back asking why they said A*AA-AAA, they replied saying the lower offer is for those with extenuating circumstances. Make of that what you will. If you'd like I can copy and paste their exact email?

    Got all my offers through now. Do I risk all by firming & insuring two A*AA offers in the hope that one will accept me if I miss the grades or should I pick the AAA offer as insurance?

    I wouldn't count on anywhere for economics accepting you if you don't get the grades. Pick your favourite and then one you still like but has lower grades.
    Don't choose an insurance that has lower grades that you don't want to go to. If that means firming and insuring two A*AA unis then so be it.

    At the moment I'm thinking of risking two A* AA offers as one doesn't specify what the A* has to be in. If both reject me, I can try clearing - is there anyway of finding out which Econ courses were in clearing last year?

    I'm not sure, try google.
    Although I do know that Durham has been in clearing 2 years in a row now so that's a possibility!

    Thanks. I know there's no guarantee Durham will be in clearing this year, but I think that's made my mind up. I'm going to go for the A*AA choices. After going to the open days last Summer, I felt quite despondent as the Econ tutors giving the talks were all saying how heavily oversubscribed their courses were and how they nearly everyone who applied met the requirements & how difficult it is to choose between people. It kind of put me off applying to places like Durham, Warwick etc. It almost seemed like they were discouraging you. For anyone thinking of applying for next year, based on my experiences, I would say go for it.

    No, it's fine, thanks though. I've asked them before. It just seems odd that a large proportion of TSR applicants are reporting AAA offers. I'm probably viewing it that way because that's what I'm hoping for :3

    On the topic of firm/insurance, if you choose 2 A*AA offers, and miss it, is the insurance uni less likely to accept you because they were only your insurance?

    Probably not. If you were a strong applicant and only missed a grade by a few ums, and a lot of applicants missed their offer, they would probably rather take you than put places up on clearing.
