    Thanks. I'm applying for the Deloitte scholar scheme and went to an EY insight event the other day but alas they don't do gap year schemes

    The Deloitte scholar scheme is hard to get into but it'll defo look good on your PS or CV. I got to the group interview stage and it was solid cos a lot of the other candidates there were your stereotypical posh boarding school educated, pony riding kids who'd been thoroughly prepared for the group interview. IBM also have a gap year scheme but I'm pretty sure their deadline has passed

    I've got an offer from QMUL, but have been rejected from LSE and am still waiting on UCL, and it looks increasingly likely that I will get rejected from there too. I have been predicted A*A*A- do you think it would be worth taking a gap year if I do get rejected from UCL- if so what would you recommend doing through the year- would doing nothing really worthwhile count against me when I reapplied?

    No not really, as long as you had strong A2 grades.
    What other unis have you applied to - don't give up yet, I'm fairly sure UCL have quite a few more offers to give out

    We just had to do an activity where an imaginary business had to advertise itself and we had to convince others to select a certain form of media to do it through. There were like 7 of us but the posh kids were so good at talking over everyone and I'm sure they received training from their schools looool

    Hey guys, I have an A*AB, do you think I'll get an offer from LSE. I have a good enough PS I think but not sure and a #104 rank (overall) on Spoink.co . What do you think, will I get in ?

    Is that your prediction or actual grades?
    If you've applied for straight economics at LSE I'd say it's doubtful because you don't meet their requirements

    Well who knows the guy might get an offer but we are not the admission tutors.They are pretty unpredictable.
    P.S It's pretty hard to get an offer for straight Economics from LSE

    Yup true it just seems unlikely if he doesn't meet their entry requirements though especially considering the competition

    If these are actually your grades you might have a shot. I looked u up on Spoink.co but I couldn't find you in the rankings, are you sure you have a #104 rank on it, seems suspicious!

    Yeah that's true but I mean it helps you get a better idea of competition. Helps a bit with the stress haha.
    What's your Spoink.co rank haha ? (I am so insecure)

    That's a bit too low for LSE I'm afraid . Lack of Further Maths, grades/predictions below minimum aren't going to go down well. Most LSE Econ offer holders have 3/4 A* predictions to put things into perspective.

    First think I heard about it too.

    Turns out it's a website that ranks some uni applications with others and gives you a success rate.
    Quite addictive haha!

    Lmao you'd think they could've chosen a name which didn't sound so awkwardly similar to you know 😂. Don't really see the point in such a website tbh, how would they know what LSE or UCL want in a candidate
